Imagine

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Aug 06, 2008

Imagine if this year millions of Catholic voters simply say 'no' -- no to every candidate of every political party who supports abortion.

A beautiful thought. And it gets better:

It's time we stop accommodating pro-abortion politicians, and it's time we start demanding that they accommodate us.

This excellent advice comes from Carl Anderson, Supreme Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus, in his annual report at the group's convention. It's such good advice, in fact, that we should hear it again:

It's time we stop accommodating pro-abortion politicians, and it's time we start demanding that they accommodate us.

So the next time a pro-abortion politician applies for membership, will the K of C accommodate him? What about membership renewals? To date the K of C has found room for members who consistently vote for abortion, stem-cell research, euthanasia, and gay marriage. Could that change? Let's get back to Anderson's speech:

And if we truly hope for a culture of life and a civilization of love, then we must first think, and then act, in new ways.

Amen.
