The Faith That Does Justice

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 01, 2003

Pro-abortionists are alarmed by Alabama AG William Pryor's nomination to a federal appellate court judgeship. Even ideological purists on the Senate Judiciary Committee are concerned about appearing anti-Catholic is they oppose him. To their huge relief, Jesuit Father Robert Drinan comes to the rescue:

"The Republicans are making this a big test case," [Drinan] said. "If you vote against them on this, they'll say you're anti-Catholic . . . They'll have to answer, 'How could you not vote for that nice attorney general who's so wonderful, and he's a Catholic? Don't you like Catholics?' It can be twisted and turned."

Drinan, a member of the board of directors of the liberal People for the American Way, said it's not a matter of Catholicism, but of conservativism. He said Pryor, who breaks with the Pope and vigorously supports the death penalty and has called Roe v. Wade the "worst abomination of constitutional law in our history," is simply too conservative for the bench.

Father, we knew you wouldn't let us down.

    Drinan should have been burned at the stake for heresy many, many, years ago. What will it take to rid us of this evil monster ?
