Progressive Nuns In Maryland And Their Fake Election Guide

From Breitbart News we read of the so-called "2014 Midterm Election Guide" put out by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, headquartered in Silver Spring, MD.  The second hyperlink is to a pdf of the thing.  First, let me give a little background on the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas.

They are headquartered in an office building on Colesville Road.  Right there that should tell you something.  They are in a secular building and not on any kind of Church property of any sort.  I've no doubt they've been refused permission by the Archdiocese of Washington to use Church property.

About seven or eight years ago, some of us had occasion to picket their location.  They were hosting a Call to Action event to discuss how to promote some sort of dissidence in the Church.  Owing to the passage of time, I do not recall what the specific topic was.  Five of us stood alongside of Colesville Road.  I thought our numbers were rather paltry.  However, I looked in that parking lot - and only saw three cars there.  The five of us outnumbered them!

Peruse through their "election misguide".  They yammer on and on about amnesty for illegals, climate change, minimum wage, gun control, etc, devoting whole sections to each topic.  Now how much of this mis-guide touches on abortion?  Towards the bottom, readers are encouraged to ask candidates about "abortion alternatives".  That's it!  The word "abortion" is mentioned once!  Even at that, there is no mention that abortion is an intrinsic evil that must be eradicated.  If they can pontificate about eliminating "risks to the environment", why not commensurate attention to the risks to the unborn child?  The answer is obvious.  Either they pander to their pro-abortion donors and/or they themselves are pro-abortion.
