Pro-Life Compromises

In today's Vortex, Michael Voris deals with some crucial ways that Catholic pro-lifers tolerate compromise on key tenets of the faith.  I don't agree with every detail of this video, but he echoes many of my concerns about the unfortunate tendency of many Catholics to "look the other way" in dealing with the evil of contraception.  American Life League, Human Life International and some others have been strident in their proclamation, but too many ignore that "elephant in the living room".

One spectacular example of such capitulation was the Manhattan Declaration.  It did a splendid job of treating all the other moral evils (abortion, divorce, homosexuality) - but no where in that exhaustive document was the word "contraception" even mentioned.  To this day I remain aghast at the number of pro-life leaders (some Catholic) who signed it.  I and several others opted not to join in that tacit and erroneous declaration that contraception was a minor matter.
