So far, Cardinal Mahony not among 89 bishops who say Catholics may not morally vote for pro-aborts
In fact, ole Q did not see one California bishop on the list -- or should we say, "honor roll" -- of the baby-defending bishops at InsideCatholic.com the other day (Oct. 27).
As far as ole Q knows, Cardinal Mahony has been silent about voting for pro-aborts. If anyone knows anything he or any of our L.A. bishops has said about that, I will publicize it happily.
The Cardinal, or any bishop, could at least quote the following statement of the U.S. bishops:
"Any politics of human dignity must seriously address issues of racism, poverty, hunger, employment, education, housing, and health care... But being 'right' in such matters can never excuse a wrong choice regarding direct attacks on innocent human life. Indeed, the failure to protect and defend life in its most vulnerable stages renders suspect any claims to the 'rightness' of positions in other matters affecting the poorest and least powerful of the human community." (sec. 23) -- Living the Gospel of Life: A Challenge to American Catholics (A Statement by the Catholic Bishops of the United States, 1998)
If Catholic voters were to hear that statement and actually take it to heart, they might vote next Tuesday against Barack Hussein Obama and other pro-abortion candidates similar to the liberals whom the Cardinal has palled around with for decades.
Cardinal Mahony, there is still time before Election Day for you to finally tell America: "You CAN'T be Catholic and pro-abortion." Please do!
