Doug Kmiec rebuffed by Fr Neuhaus

Doug Kmiec is miffed at the Catholic blogosphere for being pro-life, and noticing that he no longer is, by his assocation with and approval of the most pro-abortion man ever to run for office.

But, why waste words explaining why he is wrong, when Fr Neuhaus did so with his customary aplomb, here in the National Catholic Register.

"I do not know what has prompted Mr. Kmiec’s current advocacy, and I take him at his word that he has convinced himself that his position is consonant with being a faithful Catholic.

The fact is, however, that, after all the tortured reasoning and misrepresentation of the positions of others, Doug Kmiec has put himself into the position of supporting for president a candidate whose track record and publicly stated views represent the extreme position of pro-abortion advocacy against the Church’s repeatedly stated teaching, at the highest level of magisterial authority, respecting the moral and political imperative to protect innocent human lives.
