You've Come a Long Way Baby

Here's a gem written by Jon O'Brien, President of "Catholics For Choice".

What is a man doing heading up the cultural crusade to deflower and dump women?

(By the way, I'm curious, have you ever heard the wizards at the USCCB say that 'Catholics for Choice' is not approved by the Catholic Church?)

I'm not sure what to say about the poor misguided lambs whooping it up that the government run by sexually irresponsible men has decided women need free birth control.

We don't love you or respect you but we'd like to use you for sex and then dump you. Free pills for everyone so men don't end up like John Edwards.

And what do these poor women say to the men tweeting pictures of themselves naked, having their way with women whose self-respect is bankrupt from sleeping around with men who make clear at the outset they're going to dump them or they want to live with them rather than marry them because something better might come along yonder down the road?

" Catholic organizations appear to have a better understanding of Catholic teachings than the bishops. Citing the Catholic social justice tradition, the organizations requested that Secretary Sebelius reject this demand from the U.S. bishops and not "impose burdensome conscience clauses which seek to limit and indeed eliminate access, and dishonor the conscience of those seeking services."

The timing of the letter is particularly opportune because July 25 is the 43rd anniversary of when Pope Paul VI issued Humanae Vitae."

Why thank you sirs for respecting our "consciences"!

God preserve our young women from the insanity.

This was my favorite part of the article:

Since Humanae Vitae, Catholics have increasingly felt that the hierarchy did not speak for them

It sure doesn't. The Catholic Church is the Paraclete Christ promised before being Martyred to purchase Her for those who wish to follow His guidance and pursue Heaven. It speaks for God, Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ our Sovereign King.

Knock yourselves out rejecting the guidance. But really, I don't know what you've won. You've built a generation of men who never developed emotional intimacy and relationship skills because you reduced sexuality to an emotionless alternative to masturbation.

The reality is, it is a generation of women suffering the consequences. Lonely and miserable. Seems to me women were much happier when they reserved their sexuality for men who committed their lives to the women they loved for better or worse, richer or poorer, in sickness and in health.

Not to worry though, they're passing out pills for that too. Maybe they should augment this initiative and pass out free antidepressants along with it.

And, I see that New Ways Ministry signed on. Why don't the Bishops who don't want to defend the faith, who no longer believe in the one true faith, do us all a favor and leave. Just leave. New Ways Ministry was ordered to cease and desist by George. But, here we are, and here they are. Is it possible to feel any more disgusted that I am about this?

(May 10, 2000) -- Galveston-Houston Bishop Joseph A. Fiorenza, president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops/U. S. Catholic Conference, issued the following statement on the status of the organization "Catholics for a Free Choice":

"For a number of years, a group calling itself Catholics for a Free Choice (CFFC) has been publicly supporting abortion while claiming it speaks as an authentic Catholic voice. That claim is false. In fact, the group's activity is directed to rejection and distortion of Catholic teaching about the respect and protection due to defenseless unborn human life.

"On a number of occasions the National Conference of Catholic Bishops (NCCB) has stated publicly that CFFC is not a Catholic organization, does not speak for the Catholic Church, and in fact promotes positions contrary to the teaching of the Church as articulated by the Holy See and the NCCB.

"CFFC is, practically speaking, an arm of the abortion lobby in the United States and throughout the world. It is an advocacy group dedicated to supporting abortion. It is funded by a number of powerful and wealthy private foundations, mostly American, to promote abortion as a method of population control. This position is contrary to existing United Nations policy and the laws and policies of most nations of the world.

"In its latest campaign, CFFC has undertaken a concentrated public relations effort to end the official presence and silence the moral voice of the Holy See at the United Nations as a Permanent Observer. The public relations effort has ridiculed the Holy See in language reminiscent of other episodes of anti-Catholic bigotry that the Catholic Church has endured in the past.

"As the Catholic Bishops of the United States have stated for many years, the use of the name Catholic as a platform for promoting the taking of innocent human life and ridiculing the Church is offensive not only to Catholics, but to all who expect honesty and forthrightness in public discourse. We state once again with the strongest emphasis: `Because of its opposition to the human rights of some of the most defenseless members of the human race, and because its purposes and activities deliberately contradict essential teachings of the Catholic faith,....Catholics for a Free Choice merits no recognition or support as a Catholic organization" (Administrative Committee, National Conference of Catholic Bishops, 1993)."

And suffer still, Carol, an entire new generation hopping on this train that leads only to death.

I can remember one day, and I really don't remember when it happened in my reversion/conversion process, but I literally awakened one day and understood the evils of contraception and its realtionship to all the myriad ills of our society--and this was before I had read anything or understood anything, really. It was if the Holy Spirit just helped me "get it". We focus so much on abortion. I don't the evil of contraception gets nearly the attention it merits. Great post, my friend.
