Nancy Pelosi has single-handedly energized the Roman Catholic hierarchy into effective action against her attempt to obscure Roman Catholic teaching on the rights of the unborn. In so doing, she has also made it very clear to Mass-attending Catholics that their votes in November are moral acts which their Church considers to be hugely significant. (HT: PowderTracks.)
I’d like to than the Speaker for raising this issue at this time, and for provoking so many of the bishops to act with such speed and clarity.
And kudos to Archbishop Chaput for leading the way on Monday. For a complete explanation of the Church’s teaching on the political responsibilites of the faithful, get the archbishop’s new book, Render Unto Caesar.
