"Today we march, tomorrow we vote"

You probably saw the signs that read, "Today we march, tomorrow we vote," or "Hoy marchamos, manana votamos," in the marches in support of illegals last Monday.

News reports say that labor unions, left-wing pressure groups and Demoncrat activists organized and conducted the marches. These groups support aborting babies.

These realities mean that there is an urgent question that Cardinal Mahony, Bishop Zavala, the other bishops and the clergy need to answer right away: Are you going to let pro-aborts turn Monday's 2 million (or so) marchers into future long-term voters for pro-abortion politicians?

Unfortunately, as we know, the answer probably is, "Yes." For one thing, many of the hierarchy and clergy themselves are long-term voters for Demoncrat pro-abortion politicians. For another, our spiritual leaders are conspicuously silent in the pulpit about abortion, and especially about Papal and Vatican statements, and even U.S. bishops' official statements, that the right to life needs to be the primary consideration for Catholic politicians and voters.

So, as usual, it is up to us pro-life Catholics to go to work. On any number of fronts, we need to explain to everyone, including our illegal neighbors, that Demoncrats and some Republicans are pro-abortion and that it is wrong to support them and vote for them. We also need to urge our hierarchy and clergy to make these points; but good luck on that. Let us pray!

I've been putting together a comprehensive overview of the Vagina Monologue controversy at N.D. While reviewing some research this morning I came across one of Bishop D'Arcy's statements (from Feb 2004) in which he says...

"...a bishop bears a serious responsibility before God and the church to see that Catholic teaching is always presented, clearly, and without reservation."

Shh, no one tell Roger!

I saw the photo of Cardinal Roger Mahony in his white t-shirt, along with Bishop Zavala, similarly clad, standing arm in arm with the lefty pro-abort politicians at the march on Monday.

This is so disgusting. A true shepherd, a true man of God, an archbishop who really loves souls, born and unborn, could turn California and the nation around, and put an end to the grip that the anti-life forces have on our culture.

I say Mahony should be fired and sent packing. Every minute he stays in office he further harms the Church and countless souls. What a disgrace!

I have just been told that Maphony has actually ordered all his pastors to disobey the Holy Father and to do so by using glass pitchers and wicker baskets in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass!

If this is true, he is putting his pastors in a terrible dilema: obey him or obey the Vicar of Christ! We already have more than enough indication as to who he obeys!

Dear Felipe,

Your words, "arm in arm with the lefty pro-abort politicians," say it all.
