Given the above, I have two questions:
- Why was this openly pro-abortion person invited to give a talk to students of Don Bosco Christo Rey High School in Takoma Park?
- Why did the Catholic Standard, the official publication for the Archdiocese of Washington, enthuse and slobber all over this episode as those this was just the most "wunnerfullest" thing to happen at that school?
Ladies and gentlemen, I'm sure that the topic of abortion was not broached once during that appearance at the school. However, the fact that he was invited to that school lends his pro-abortion beliefs a credibility that they simply don't deserve. That point is NOT lost on anyone. The students were the ones who suffered the greatest disservice as they were provided scandalous example. The Standard article simply exacerbated the problem by painting this episode as something positive. Small wonder, therefore, that the bishops aren't taken seriously by the progressives in Washington as they lobby against abortion and the HHS mandate.
