Tidings doesn't tell us Kmiec backs Obama

Isn't that cute?

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.

There is never a reason to justify abortion. Will there be some that commit abortions because it's illegal? of course, we're a fallen people, but this doesn't mean that we as a society shouldn't try to astrive for perfection.

Is The Tidings trying to give Kmiec (and thereby Obama) some cover? As Q states, he has been very public in his support for Mr. Obama. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Obama the only Presidential candidate in US history to be on record as voting for infanticide? He is also one of the very few on record against a ban on partial-birth abortion. Does anyone remember reading in elementary school about the Spartans and how they left the sickly infants to die on the mountaintops? We were all aghast, but our teachers assured us that those things don't happen in modern times. Well guess what? Not only do they happen, but a very vocal supporter of the practice has a 50/50 shot to be our President! A very sad state of affairs.

For Kmiec to even be writing about abortion at this juncture is pure hypocrisy and the fact that the Cardinal has granted him a forum is yet another failure of his leadership.

Dear Joe of St. Therese,

Thanks for pointing out that we as a society need to strive for perfection -- you're so right.

Dear Paul,

I agree with you totally about Kmiec and B.H. Obama.

And it is inexplicable that an archdiocesan newspaper would run a column from any supporter of a politician without identifying him as such -- all the more so when the politician is a 100% pro-abortion extremist and his backer is taking his side.

At least, a later issue of The Tidings did run a letter to the editor that revealed Kmiec's link to B. H. Obama.
