Bishops letter upsets a few Catholics

Bishop Kevin Farrell of the Diocese of Dallas and Bishop Kevin Vann of the Diocese of Forth Worth both authored a letter which was read from the pulpit from many North Texas Catholic Churches.

Some Catholic walked out of church services during the reading of this letter. The letter basically advised parishioners when voting, if voting for a pro-abortion candidate is morally wrong. Why would this upset any Catholic? The Catholic Church has been historically pro-life and should come as no surprise to any Roman Catholic. Those Catholics, who were offended by this reaffirmation of the Churchs doctrine, need to examine their dedication to Catholicism. If they want to be cafeteria type Catholic they should not expect the Church to reduce their beliefs and teachings also.

The group Americans United for Separation of Church and State criticized the letter. Which was further proof this group and pro-abortionist are trying to distort the debate. First because there is not mention in the United States Constitution of separation of church and state. Also, there was no politics in this letter as it did not endorse any candidate or political party, it just re-affirmed the Church position on pro-life. Was this group upset when Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton all went into churches to talk politics when they were seeking to be elected president? They were silent, because according to them it is only wrong to talk politics in a church if the talk is conservative. Which is also the historical behavior of The New York Times, The Washington Post, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and The Associated Press.

Wake up America, your values are being assaulted by the political extreme left who control the news media, Hollywood, and academia.
