Bishop slams pro-abort "one party" ahead of "the November madness"

A member of the U.S. Catholic hierarchy has ripped the Democrat party -- he did not actually name it, but he did not have to -- as "the party of death" and has charged that it "would place us squarely on the road to suicide as a people."

As you might surmise, this member of the hierarchy is not Cardinal Roger "Photo Ops with Countless Democrats" Mahony of Los Angeles.

No, he is Bishop Thomas Doran of Rockford, Illinois. He blasted the anti-lifers in "Reaping the whirlwind of abortion," his column (click on this post's title) of August 10, 2006, in his diocesan newspaper, The Observer.

Saying he wanted "to touch on this matter before we get too close to the November madness," Bishop Doran wrote this about the "one party":

"The seven 'sacraments' of their secular culture are abortion, buggery, contraception, divorce, euthanasia, feminism of the radical type, and genetic experimentation and mutilation. These things they unabashedly espouse, profess and promote. Their continuance in public office is a clear and present danger to our survival as a nation."

Go get 'em, Your Excellency!

Bishop Doran also wrote, "The toleration of sexual perversions among inverts, widespread contraception, easy access to “no fault” divorce, the killing of the elderly, radical feminism, embryonic stem cell research — all of these things defile and debase our human nature and our human destiny."

The bishop continued, "It is the duty of every Catholic to support the work of the parish Pro-Life directors and commissions and to work for the extirpation from our society of all those who in any way foster or promote these things."

"...the extirpation from our society..."!!!

Bishop Doran concluded his column with this question:

"These unholy sacraments of our secular culture are the seeds of the destruction of our nation. Think for yourself: what nation that kills its young, perverts marriage, prevents new life, and destroys the family, kills those deemed useless, makes the war of the sexes into a real war, and manipulates the genetic basis of human nature, can long endure?"

Hmmm. Somehow this Successor of the Apostles has forgotten to plug the "broad range of issues" that many of his fellow U.S. bishops promote to the benefit of their Democrat pals.

How can two members of the same hierarchy, Bishop Doran and Cardinal Mahony, treat Democrat anti-lifers so differently? (This is a rhetorical question, but your answer would be interesting!)

Thanks be to God for a courageous bishop; there are still less than 20 who have said they will not give HOly Communion to the public pro-abortion politicians.
So many of our bishops participate in the culture of death by never addressing the evils of our society but, of course, they must be very busy with their own personal things.

No wonder the good Cardinal ranks as the LA Times 5th most powerful person in SoCal. http://www.latimes.com/news/local/valley/la-tm-toppower33aug13,1,4087700.htmlstory

Oh, and thank you Bishop Doran for your leadership. Can you speak Spanish? btw, apropos of nothing, how is Bishop Olmstead's spanish coming along? :)

Has the good Bishop seen the makeup of some of the parish so called pro-life committees in some Archdiocese and Diocese? I think he should qualify his statement since some of these committees are Demoncrat hotbeds.

None the less, we have to thank and pray for the good Bishop and his small but growing number of cohorts.

Dear Kenneth,

That is a good point -- we have to be careful to find out ahead of time whether a parish pro-life committee is truly pro-life or not.
