In his February 17 column in his diocesan newspaper, The Catholic Sentinel, Bishop Vasa wrote about heresy, saying, "There are...moral teachings [of the Church] that constitute a part of the deposit of faith that must be accepted and adhered to, 'firmly embraced and retained.'"
Bishop Vasa continued, "The truth is that God charges each of us with the duty to protect and defend innocent human life." Then he wrote that being "pro-choice" implicitly rejects "the clear and consistent teaching of the Church" and that voting for a pro-abortion politician because he or she is pro-abortion "is a type of declaration that the teaching of the Church, indeed the validity of the Fifth Commandment itself, is rejected."
Writing that "One brave soul has termed this present rejection of responsibility for one’s pre-born brother or sister the right-to-murder HERESY [emphasis added]," Bishop Vasa concluded, "Our kind and gentle Lord will certainly receive us and help us when we cry out to Him for He is 'meek and humble of heart,' but I suspect he will likewise not mince words with those who reject His Way and His Truth."
What would Bishop Vasa say about Cardinal Mahony, Cardinal McCarrick, soon-to-be Cardinal O'Malley and the other squishops and clergy who pal around with notorious pro-abortion Catholic politicians and even give them Communion? I think that in his February 17 column he has already said it.
