If The News Media Did Not Report It, Did It Really Happen, Part 2

The main stream media continues to ignore the fiery Archbishop Burke’s speech at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, as I wrote earlier. Their motto seems to be, “If you can’t beat them, ignore them.”

Time magazine is the third major news outlet since May 8 to pretend that the Vatican is either pleased or unwilling to say anything negative about Obama, his administrative decisions, or his honor from Notre Dame. In fact, Amy Sullivan, author of the most recent article ends by suggesting that those who oppose Obama on abortion are trying to be more Catholic than the Pope.

Perhaps, she should research the full text of the speech that Archbishop Burke, an extremely highly placed Vatican official, gave on May 8, 2009, just ten days ago. He was interrupted with standing ovations several times, like when he said,
"Catholic institutions cannot offer any platform to, let alone honor, those who teach and act publicly against the moral law. . . If we as individuals are not willing to accept the burdens and the suffering of the Catholic witness to the right to life, we are not worthy of the name Catholic.”

The reason that Catholics get so upset by life issues, such as abortion, euthanasia, and embryonic stem cell research, is that it is always and everywhere wrong to kill innocent human beings. Other issues such as war and the death penalty are open to reason and debate, since they can be justified and virtuously employed in the correct circumstances. Knowingly killing innocents, as Americans are doing at the rate of about 4,000 per day, however, can never be honorable.

Those pro abortion politicians, like Nancy Pelosi, who are so upset about water boarding grown men who are actively trying to kill Americans as a way to frighten them into giving information should consider the agonizing "waterboarding" a frail little baby goes through when salt water is pumped into its sanctuary, the womb, as a way to kill it. Or when an inserted vacuum tube tears its arms and legs off without benefit of anesthesia. Then there’s the partial birth abortion where scissors are stuck in the back of the baby’s neck and its skull crushed just as it is about to take it’s first breath. And Obama has four times voted AGAINST giving any medical attention to a baby born alive in spite of an attempted abortion. That’s called infanticide. People who honor those promoting these practices are not worthy of the name Catholic.
