Cardinal not opposed to pro-choice politicians lecturing on campus. God people go batshit crazy!

Apparently this link between white supremacists and pro-choice activists is not just limited to a few freaky sites on the internet [see post on Klan Parenthood from a week ago]

A United States of Conference of Catholic Bishops statement agreed upon last June stated that pro-choice politicians should not be honored by Catholic communities and institutions. "They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions."

I guess that Washington Cardinal Theodore McCarrick has stated that he has no opposition to pro-choice politicians speaking on a Catholic campus, provided that they do not receive an honorary degree or other kind of award -- because, my god! That would be crossing the line.

[Cue the crazies here, with the signs with aborted fetuses on them, and statements that have no logic.]

“It’s totally inappropriate for a Catholic institution to give a platform to someone who supports what the church teaches is murder of the innocent.”

My favorite:

“I doubt the Cardinal would even consider having a white supremacist come and speak at a Catholic college since such a person would rightly be viewed as a supporter of discrimination based on race, which the church condemns. However, according to the Catholic Church, abortion is at least as evil as racism. And besides, abortion, like racism, is all about discrimination. It’s discrimination based on age, size and dependency.”

Oh, I love this:

"And besides, abortion, like racism, is all about discrimination. It’s discrimination based on age, size and dependency."

Because the anti-choice position isn't about discrimination at all! Certainly not discrimination on the basis of sex (only women get pregnant), age (parental notification laws), socioeconomic status (no Medicaid funding for you!) or region (Mississippi, for example, has only *one* abortion provider).

No, it's all about loving the cute little babies! It's times like these that I'm so glad I'm not Catholic anymore.
