Pro Ecclesia * Pro Familia * Pro Civitate: And the Philadelphia Enquirer [sic] Joins In (With an Anti-Catholic Cartoon)
Naturally, that tolerant liberal, Rosie O'Donnell, ex-Catholic raised in the town next door to me, weighs in.
"At the end of her abortion tirade, she addresses her co-host Barbara Walters:
O'Donnell: You know what concerns me? How many Supreme Court judges are Catholic, Barbara?
O'Donnell: Five. How about separation of church and state?"
But Bruce Hausknecht, legal analyst for Focus on the Family puts her in her place.
"Remember liberal Sen. Chuck Schumer expressing misgivings over 11th Circuit Judge Bill Pryor's (another Catholic, by the way) "strongly held beliefs" at Pryor's confirmation hearing. Now Rosie and the Inquirer have escalated the bombast by alleging outright impropriety by the Supreme Court in the partial-birth abortion case.
Is there no shame? Apparently, not.
Here's a small reminder of the role of the Supreme Court: 64 senators and 282 representatives passed the 2003 ban on an overwhelmingly bipartisan basis. It was also "bi-gender," if there is such a word. They all thought it was constitutional or they wouldn't have voted for it.
Agreeing with those elected officials is all the five members of the court who decided the case are guilty of. Except being people of faith -- which is more than Rosie, the Inquirer and whoever else can tolerate. "
What can I add to that?
Another sign of ecumenism in the trenches. Thanks and God bless you, Dr. Dobson!
