Cardinal Mahony's archdiocesan newspaper, The Tidings, this week (click on this post's title) carries a guest column by Douglas Kmiec, the Catholic law professor at Pepperdine who endorsed the extremist abortion fanatic Barack Hussein Obama for president earlier this year -- and in a journalistic lapse, The Tidings conveniently fails to tell us that Kmiec is a shill for Obama.
Kmiec repeats Catholic teaching that aborting babies is intrinsically wrong. But he fails to cite Catholic teaching that aborting babies is an issue above all others.
He also falsely says conservatives took "unnecessary glee" in our U.S. bishops' rebukes to Democrat "keep abortion legal" enthusiasts Joseph Biden and Nancy Pelosi for misreprenting Catholic teaching about aborting babies.
Listen up, Kmiec: As long as your pal Obama and his ilk keep it legal to abort 3,000+ American babies every day, no pro-lifers are "gleeful" about anything.
Kmiec also intimates, or should I say pretends, that fewer babies will be aborted under Democrats than Republicans. And that leads him to his main point, a claim that "there is... more than one way to be pro-life."
Sure, Dougie: Your way to be pro-life is to elect Democrat abortion zealots such as Obama, who have all sworn to keep aborting babies legal at all costs. That's really pro-life of you.
The same issue of The Tidings does have pro-life articles. But it also has some anti-pto-life letters to the editor.
