In the wake of the stunning defeat of a dem in the Massachusetts election, there is a hard-hitting entry on SERVIAM today.
What Can Brown Do For You? Scratch Another Pro Abortion CINO!
The victory by Scott Brown in Massachusetts tonight is a victory for Catholics. Brown, a protestant, defeated Martha Coakley, the Massachusetts Pro Abortion ["Catholic"] Attorney General. Coakley, like Nancy Pelosi and the late Ted Kennedy whose Senate seat they were fighting for, likes to call herself Catholic. She is anything but. CINO candidates like this must be defeated.
And while it would be nice to say (and maybe someday we will be able to) that the race swung because a couple of million Massachusetts Catholics said no to abortion and no to CINOs, [clearly not the case] this race swung on other political issues (although she did opine that maybe Catholics should not work in emergency rooms that might be called upon to provide abortion services. How considerate.)
This all leads me to an excellent post appearing tonight from Adore te Devote on the very subject of pro-abortion politicians who call themselves Catholic.
I don’t care who you are! If you willfully and publicly dissent against and advance teachings that contradict the Faith and Morals of the Catholic Church, you have separated yourself from us all, and therefore you may be “Catholic” in name and by baptism (for by virtue of this, there is always hope…I’m a sinner, too, and screw up a LOT), but you LOSE the right to proclaim in conjunction with a public life and advancement in the eyes of others, a Faith you obstinately REFUSE, ESPECIALLY if you’re using it for your political advancement to purposefully fleece those who are even more uncatechized than you!
Read the whole post here and send to your local CINO politicians and friends.
Real practicing Catholics must be active in the public square… and the digital continent. When we find someone distorting our identity, we must make it clear that they are not with us.
