Also, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, D.C., has cited "Whatever you do to the least of My brethren, that you do unto Me" as a reason for helping "illegals."
Have certain parallels ever occurred to these Cardinals -- for instance, that babies in the womb carry no documents to support their presence among us? That the babies are on a journey, in the trackless dark, to an unfamiliar new world? That the babies are completely destitute and totally dependent on others? That people ignore, stereotype, dehumanize, lie about, hate, betray and refuse to help preborn babies?
And has it ever occurred to these Cardinals that it is "legal" (but an unjust law is no law at all, the Church teaches us) to KILL, and BARBARICALLY SO, the undocumented babies in the womb as they struggle to reach their destination among us?
These parallels must not have occurred to the Cardinals. If they had, surely by now their Eminences would have told their clergy to protect and save the little babies.
Surely the Cardinals long since would have taken the lead and mustered their clergy and laity to stop business as usual and take prayerful and peaceful but bold, actual steps to overcome and stop the MASS KILLINGS of BABIES by the TENS OF MILLIONS.
Surely the Princes of the Church would have long ago irrevocably cut all ties with politicians who defy the Church and protect, fund and facilitate the mass killings.
So if these ideas have not occurred to the Cardinals, it must be up to us to plant them in their minds and hearts. Blogging, snail mail and pickets can do that. So let us help them see babies in the womb as truly among "the least of My brethren."
