El Presidente and the pill that kills

Millions of Mexicans profess their love for the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, the Mother of God, but they ignore the teachings of Her Son and of His Holy Church. President Vicente Fox is one such Mexican Catholic who is more like a Judas Iscariot than a Juan Diego.

MEXICO CITY, July 13 (Reuters) - President Vicente Fox, the first devout Roman Catholic to lead Mexico in decades, has been labeled a traitor by the church after his government put "morning-after" contraceptive pills in public clinics this week.

The morning-after pill, sometimes called emergency contraception, is taken within 72 hours of intercourse to prevent pregnancy. It contains hormones such as estrogen and progestin that stop a fertilized egg from becoming implanted in the uterus.

This report from Reuters calls Fox "the first devout Roman Catholic to lead Mexico in decades." DON'T YOU BELIEVE IT.

When he ran for office, Fox gave the impression of being a faithful Catholic. On the day that he assumed office, he made a public spectacle of going to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe where he attended Mass and received Holy Communion. But shortly after that, the betrayals came, one after another, beginning with his civil marriage to his spokesperson, Martha SahagĂșn. Both of them have a previous marriage in the Church.

Sadly, the Reuters report of this latest act of betrayal, therefore, comes as no surprise. From the start, President Fox has shown that he is about as Catholic as John Kerry.

Nonetheless, the Church cooperated in declaring null the previous marriages of both so that they could have a church wedding.

Anonymous, 3:39.

I was not aware that they had receive annulments. Where did you read that?

And if indeed this is true, why have they not had their marriage blessed by the Church?

Please respond.

Those mexicans who are catholic won't use this pill. But not all mexicans are catholic and he is the president of all of them, isn't he?

Marta received an annulment; she accused Bribiesca, her husband of fifteen years of being a wife-beater, which was news to him. She is now in an "irregular" matrimony, not "in sin," according to her.

As Fox's annulment case concerned a head of state, it had to be moved to Rome. I believe that it was never granted. Fox's wife Liliana lives in Rome with at least one of their children, so I think that it will never happen.

The president of the country, especially in Mexico where politics are so personal, has the obligation to set an example for citizens, Catholic and non-Catholic, and make it possible for them to choose what is right but not make it possible for them to kill.
