A little reductio ad absurdem....
Having sex before marriage is a mortal sin.... it can land you in hell all on its own. Souls are at stake as we have a country and culture that is going straight to hell, if that is believed. Where are the Bishops calling for laws against premarital sex? Hell, with abortion, the aborted babies get to go straight to heaven.. so really, premarital sex is a greater danger to our standing with God than abortion is, if you honestly follow the premises the church lays out for us. And there are a lot more people having premarital sex (and gasp, using birth control!) than there are having abortions. Using the pill is equivalent to abortion in the church's eyes. Why are they not telling us that any candidate who is pro-pill should be voted against?
The church has gone beyond its role of providing spiritual guidance and has stepped full force into the political arena by telling voters who and what to vote for and by dictating to its members exactly what type of government philosophy they should hold.
Being pro-choice doesnt mean one condones abortion... it may just mean that they don't feel the government should ban it. Do you condone premarital sex, or birth control, because you don't (hopefully, you don't) support laws against it? When it comes to abortion, the church and its members have truely and unabashedly thrown reason to the wolves... such is the danger of religiously motivated morality..Don't be confused Willie they are full blown hypocrits and deserved to be called to task from the rooftops, if need be, by each and every Catholic Bishop in America .:D
Divorce can also get you thrown from the church... they just don't do it because they wouldn't have any members left these days. The same thing could happen with abortion... eventually.
