Sr. Anita Baird "Apologizes"

Sr. Anita Baird, the founding director of the Office of Racial Justice for the Chicago Archdiocese, has apologized for saying that President Obama is simply pro-choice and not pro-abortion, and now professes that "there can be no distinction" between the two.

"In order to clarify my quote that appeared on, I am affirming my belief in the teachings of the Catholic Church and understand that there can be no distinction between pro-abortion and pro-choice, because the choice at issue is the choice to kill a child," wrote Baird in a statement released Wednesday. "I also apologize to those who were scandalized by my statement."

I can't quite put my finger on what's making me uncomfortable about this "apology".

Is Cardinal George and Sr. Baird admitting they're giving a lifetime achievement award to a priest who is not only clearly a loon, but who they now admit helped set up a regime to put policies in place to kill more children to help the poor manage their budgets and limit government spending on their children?

Is there anybody who is lucid considers this an "apology"?

If you give a lifetime achievement award to priests who promote policies that kill children, what is next?    

Cardinal George awarding Paul Shanley with a lifetime achievement award?

The insincerity compounds the scandal for people who believe Cardinals coddling priests promoting babykilling is worse than their coddling pedophiles.

And, by the way - that's a pretty nice set of pearls on Sister.

What do you think, that's about a 38 inch set, wouldn't you say?   That's about fifteen grand hanging around her neck.
