Recently two Catholic hospitals in Cologne, Germany declined to give the "morning after" pill to a rape victim. Of course what they declined to do was to facilitate in a possible chemical abortion. Of course the progressives had a snit-fit.
Cardinal Joachim Meisner brought shame and disgrace upon the Church - and betrayed scores of innocent babies to boot - by approving (under "limited circumstances" of course!) the distribution of the deadly pill in Catholic hospitals in his diocese. His spokesperson had the gall to say that "everything which is abortive in nature is not allowed". Guess what? The term "emergency contraception" is misleading on its face for part of its mechanism is the causation of chemical abortion.
Even if that was not the case, the Church has always condemned contraception owing to the anti-life mentality underlying its usage. How soon these bishops forgot Humanae Vitae. Perhaps they wish the rest of us would, too. That's not happening.
During these last few days of his pontificate, I pray that Benedict XVI will discipline Cardinal Meisner and the rest of that feckless cabal.
The building of the House of the Abramitic Family seems to be a Babelic enterprise, concocted by the enemies of God, of the Catholic Church and of the only true religion capable of saving man and the whole creation from destruction, both now and in eternity, and definitively. The foundations of this “House,” destined to give way and collapse, arise where, by the hands of the builders themselves, the One Cornerstone is about to be incredibly removed: Jesus Christ, Savior and Lord, on whom is built the House of God. “Therefore,” warns the Apostle Paul, “let everyone is careful how he builds. Indeed, no one can lay a foundation other than the one already found there, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Cor 3:10).
