hey, lighten up!
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Oct 17, 2008
The American bishops have generally agreed that political candidates who favor unrestricted legal abortion should not be given opportunities to speak at Church-sponsored events.
- unless the events raise $5 million for Catholic Charities
- unless the events are hosted by the cardinal-archbishop of the nation's most prominent city
- unless the events are covered by every imaginable major media outlet
- unless the events are light-hearted, humorous affairs.
Because under those circumstances, you see, the archdiocese isn't endorsing the pro-abortion candidate. It's just showing that someone can support the deliberate slaughter of unborn human beings and still be a heckuva fun guy.
