Cardinal Mahony: "I spend all my time on" lobbying for illegals, none on looking into abortion funding in Obamacare

Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles had made his priorities clear in the past, but in an interview (click on this post's title) with CNSNews on Sept. 22 he really left no doubt about them.

And in doing so, the Cardinal refused to back up an old friend of his, Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia -- and in fact gave more credence to Barack H. Obama than to Cardinal Rigali!

Asked if he agrees with Cardinal Rigali that the House health care (read, "socialized medicine") bill uses tax dollars to pay for aborting babies and therefore needs to be amended to keep that from happening, Cardinal Mahony replied this way:

"This is 'way beyond my field. My field is immigration. I really haven’t kept up on that, and I spend all my time on this other. You have to get somebody who spends time on that."

Obviously, Cardinal Mahony could have replied instead, "If that's what my old friend Cardinal Rigali says, he must be right." Why didn't he do that?

Then, asked if he believes the bill should pay for aborting babies, Cardinal Mahony answered, "No, but that’s what the president said, too, so."

Recall that Cardinal Mahony once was the chairman of our U.S. bishops' pro-life committee. Recall also that L.A.'s predatory abortionists kill 108 babies every day in our fair area. Does our Cardinal Archbishop really have no time anymore to spend on saving our babies from being aborted?

At the bottom of the CNSNews article I've cited, you can read damage-control-attempts comments by the Archdiocesan spokesman, Tod Tamberg, and people's rebuttals of him.

Dear Joe of St. Therese,

You are so right in your comment that " intrinsic evil such as Abortion is something he [Cardinal Mahony] should know 'off the cuff' and be able to reply to at a moments notice."

Hasn't Cardinal Mahony noticed by now that the Democrat party is pro-abortion? Does he really think they would suddenly stop pushing abortions now?

And as I say, the cardinal could have given his old friend Cardinal Rigali the benefit of the doubt over the abortion-pusher politician Barack H. Obama.

I always figured the whole of Catholic doctrine was every cardinal archbishop's "field."

Dear Anita Moore,

Good to hear from you! And you are so right to note that "the whole of Catholic doctrine is every cardinal archbishop's field."

Well said!
