A guest essay in The Tidings ignores the abortion-threatened babies, once again

In the current issue of our archdiocesan newspaper The Tidings, California Catholic Conference Director of Advocacy and Education Steve Pehanich writes an essay, "A major disservice to California, again" (click on this post's title), about the current state budget stalemate.

Pehanich's essay is "a major disservice" itself -- to every single preborn baby in L.A. and all California whom the abortionists target. That's because he urges us to tell our state legislators to break the stalemate and get the budget passed, yet he fails to tell us that the budget he wants passed contains millions of our tax dollars to pay abortionists for the babies they kill.

Why couldn't Pehanich have added a few words to his essay to tell us to instruct our legislators that we want them to remove all abortion money from the budget?

Shouldn't Catholic lobbyists defend our preborn babies every single chance they get?

Earth to the California Catholic Conference, Earth to the California Catholic Conference: We Catholics do not want the state budget passed -- not as long as it contains money to kill babies.

A new commenter here, a very devoted and effective pro-lifer, Mrs. Wynette Sills of the Coalition to Eliminate Abortion Funding from our California state budget, writes:

"See www.california4life.org for more information. Each year, $33 million of our tax dollars go to pay for 95,000 'free" abortions. We must not be complicit in this life destroying act! Also, the nation-wide time of prayer and fasting, '40 Days for Life' is starting registration for the fall 2008 vigil, to bring about the end of abortion and a conversion for our nation. See www.40daysforlife.com for more information. Very gratefully, Wynette Sills"

The liberals get all bent out of shape over any talk of taxpayer-funded vouchers for education at private schools yet they are in a state of nirvana when it comes to having us pay for bloody sacrifices to Moloch? Typical depravity from the Party of the Death.

The last thing we need is to have more fires started up in the state by passing the budget containing blood money. Wasn't the "unprecedented lightning strikes" that ignited all those fires around the Bay Area the day after the world's biggest celebration of gay marriage enough?

Quintero, this is what happens when Christian leaders (whether Catholic, Protestant or Orthodox) become unduly involved in politics: They misuse God and Christ as testimonials for their positions and ideologies, and ignore their fundamental responsibilities.

Then again, it's more fun to ignore one's fundamental responsibilities to engage in political self-righetousness that costs nothing, especially from one's parishoners and diocesan residents!

Dear Pax Christi,

Thanks for pointing out what the liberals really want (aborted babies) and what they really do not want (Catholic-educated kids).

Also, thanks for pointing out the chronology of the Bay Area lightning strikes and homosexual-fest.

Dear Joseph,

We all need to meditate on applying to ourselves in daily life and our Church what St. Paul says, "I preach Jesus Christ, and Him crucified."
