What will it take for Tamberg to mention preborn babies?

The illustration above is from

Another website about Baby Jesus is They have a great pro-life book with a great foreword by Dr. Ronda Chervin.

I'm supplying these pro-life urls because today's Los Angeles Times has an article (click on this post's title) about the phenomenon of patterns in objects of daily life that resemble holy images, and the Times spoke to Cardinal Mahony spokesman Tod Tamberg. This is the result, another typically smart-aleck, wiseguy attack on Catholics' piety:

"'The church encourages Christians to see the face of Christ in the homeless, the poor, the destitute and the immigrant — not in a plate of pasta,' said Tod Tamberg, a spokesman for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. 'Imagine showing up on your judgment day in front of God, and he says, "Where did you see me? Did you see me in the poor and the immigrant and the homeless?" And you say, "Well, no, but I did see you in a piece of chocolate once." Doesn't sound so good, does it?'"

Notice how Tamberg does not see Christ in anyone except those in his and the Cardinal's favorite political causes, and he does not mention, even in the middle of Advent, seeing Christ in all the abortion-targeted preborn babies whom his Archdiocese does little to save from death.

What will it take for Tamberg and the Cardinal and the clergy to truly champion God's precious preborn babies in a concentrated, effective way, one that makes a serious, life-saving difference, day in and day out, telling all Catholics they have to start acting anti-abortion?

One great thing they could do, if only they would, is invite the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life into the Archdiocese and order all clergy and all Catholic groups to cooperate fully with them. And no, I am not expecting any such action, just saying that is what should happen. It is not a complete impossibility, after all, or it should not be.

Psa 137:7 Remember, O Jehovah, against the children of Edom The day of Jerusalem; Who said, Rase it, rase it, Even to the foundation thereof.
Psa 137:8 O daughter of Babylon, that art to be destroyed, Happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee As thou hast served us.
Psa 137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones Against the rock.

Geez, at it again... "hoodlum" do YOU consider yourself a Protestant??? 'Cuz it's hard to explain your lifting that verse so far out of context except either that your're absolutely clueless about the use of scripture or you're just trying to be a troll...

The destruction of Edom and Babylon = supporting abortion. Brilliant. Powerful insight. Do you think Jesus wrote the Psalms???

Dear Dave,

Well, of course God inspired the composing of the Psalms.

Too many people, such as Hollywood writers, seem not to know about the New Covenant, which changed everything. That's why movies and TV shows always have bad guys quoting "An eye for an eye," as if Jesus hadn't supplanted that.
