More proof that Catholic liberals do not care about preborn babies AT ALL

Who knew that any of the "who cares about preborn babies" Catholic liberals could so soon and so egregiously top that St. Louis Catholic hospital foundation fundraiser's recent hosting of notorious pro-abortion songbird Sheryl Crow in defiance of Archbishop Burke?

Well, they have, already. LifeSiteNews.com reports (click on this post's title) that for its annual Mercy Home Graduates Luncheon fundraiser (no date given), Chicago's Mercy Home for Boys and Girls has invited...pro-partial-birth-abortion, pro-homosexual Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.

And as you might expect, a spokesman for the home says, presumably with a straight face, that the hosting of the Democrat presidential hopeful is not political and not an endorsement!

The spokesman also says Cardinal Francis George of Chicago inquired and "had some very understandable misgivings but he just wanted to be assured this was not a political stop." You see, Mrs. Bill is going to speak about...education.

Right. Just because H. Rodham Clinton is the most politically obsessed individual in the whole USA and is running for president, why would anyone suspect that "this" is "a political stop?"

As LifeSiteNews.com points out, the U.S. bishops in 2004 issued a "Catholics in Political Life" document and said in there, "The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions."

So if he does not cancel H-Rodham's appearance, Cardinal George is VIOLATING the U.S. bishops' own instructions!

Fortunately, the great pro-life hero Joe Scheidler of the equally great Pro-Life Action League, which has saved the lives of countless babies through the years, promises to picket the event. Wish I could be there. Details should be forthcoming at: http://www.prolifeaction.org/

But why should the people who uphold the Church's teachings on the right to life always have to be on the outside of a "Catholic" event, looking in?

Once again, we see that Catholic liberals do not care AT ALL about the lives of preborn babies.

So it is your informed and discerning opinion that Francis Cardinal George is a "Catholic liberal"?

To applaud Burke is to condemn John Cardinal O'Connor who toasted pro-abortion politicians like Jeanne Kilpatrick and Ed Koch at Catholic events. Or are the rules different for pro-choice neo-cons?

And if having Crow sing is to endorse abortion, then is naming a hospital for Glennon endorsing segregation?

Dear Katherine,

Thanks for writing. I've answered these questions of yours at "comments" section of the other posts on this subject.

Cardinal O'Connor would have done what Archbishop Burke did, because the invitation to Sheryl Crow was so blatant a challenge to Holy Mother Church's authority, given singer Crow's prominent part in the pro-cloning campaign in Missouri in 2006.

Dear Patricia,

So do I detect a note of sarcasm in your "informed and discerning opinion" comment? That's okay.

In my humble opinion, the people who invited H. Rodham C. without asking the Archbishop first are the
liberals, and flamingly so.

Yet one would think that Cardinal George would recall, and would comply with, the U.S. bishops' own instruction about not having pro-aborts at Catholic functions.

He should also come down hard on the people who purposely have put him in this awkward position.
