Writing in America magazine, Catholic congressman David Obey announces, "I agree with my church that abortion in most cases is wrong." But the Church teaches that abortion is wrong in all cases, exceptionlessly. Therefore David Obey in fact disagrees with the Church. He seems to think it unsporting of Archbishop Burke to point this out.

    I'm sure Robert LaFollette (whoever he may be) will stand shoulder to shoulder with Mr. Obey before the judgment seat of God and defend his decision to follow the dictates of his precious poorly informed conscience rather than those inerrant and unchanging teachings of the Catholic Church, which God has founded.

    If the current America editorship were around during the Passion of the Christ, they'd be publishing a long self justifying piece by Pontius Pilate saying that he agrees that crucifixion is wrong in most cases.
