The nuns are supposed to drop their good deeds, and instead speak out against gay marriage and abortion! By the way, the U.S. government does not pay or fund or have any taxes pay for abortions. This is the law passed by Congress years ago. NO TAX DOLLARS HAVE EVER BEEN ALLOWED TO FUND ABORTION. You are being manipulated to believe the opposite. If you are pro-life, which EVERY SANE PERSON IS, then stop asking the government to fund your Wars which kill and murder against all God's laws.
"... American nuns have been accused by the Vatican of promoting "radical feminism."
The inspectors' assessment, issued April 18, said that while the LCWR had done good work in areas of social justice, it had been “silent” on those issues that command the utmost attention of the church leadership: abortion, euthanasia, homosexuality and the ordination of women.
Now listen: when I speak of "fetal tissue" I am talking about our obsession with flesh instead of spirit. Christ clearly stated that his Kingdom was of Spirit, not of the world. He said the Kingdom of Heaven is inside your heart and soul. None of the fleshly laws of kings or of the court concerned Christ. For religious people, this is one reason we have separation of Church and State.
In a diverse society such as ours, based on FREEDOM OF RELIGION, the only law that really works is the Golden Rule.
Freedom of religion is what America is based on (read your history: we formed this new country to get away from the dictates of the English Church. Protestants wanted to worship freely; they did not want to be forced to follow the horrifying, antique, primitive, ugly laws of the medieval Catholic Church, which burned Joan of Arc at the stake and which tortured people, and which put Galilleo in prison for nine years for stating the truth, that the "earth revolves around the sun." So we fled England and came here to this land to be a free country -- free to worship as we please. That said, in a diverse country of many religions including Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Anglican, Atheist, Episcopalian and yes, Catholic -- not every sect can have the civil laws made to fit his own religion. So we go by CIVIL LAW: what is fair for all? THE GOLDEN RULE pretty much covers it.
So it is not your business what I do with my womb before 8 weeks of the gestation of fetus. This is my private womb. I am a mother and personally could never have an abortion, but it is not my right to tell another woman what to do with her own life and health before 8 weeks. And the reason this is not your business is this:
1. There is a reason the womb is encased in the separate, private body of each individual woman: there are no public womb farms. My womb is not public property. We don't have public womb farms with armed guards standing over rows of external wombs making sure each "womb man" woman doens't perform a dangerous "do-it-yourself" abortion.
2. The government DOES NOT FUND ABORTION AND NEVER HAS. No tax dollars have EVER been allowed to fund abortion. NEVER. If you believe this, you are being manipulated by a very corrupt political agenda.
3. NO ONE IS PRO-ABORTION! No Democrat or Liberal or Sane person is pro-abortion. We just can't put a guard over every 12-year old rape victim or pregnant woman to prevent her from an illegal, dangerous abortion! We can't LEGISLATE THIS.
Christ said we are not FLESH but SPIRIT.
So called "pro-life" killers are destructive to human life by their TOTAL DISOBEDIENCE to Christ's laws. By their lack of kindness toward their fellow man.
To the woman who wrote in violent all-caps, I am sorry for your pain and trauma. As a mother, I had the same experience. But you have no right to makes laws about other people's 'wombs. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT.
Don't you understand? The womb is encased in the separate body of OTHER MOTHERS, other HUMAN BEINGS, not just YOU. What gives you the right to tell another woman what she can and cannot do with her body, her fetal tissue at 2-8 weeks? This is not your business, because God created us with free will which determines a person's soul and their journey to "salvation"
I'm a mother too, I would never be able to have an abortion, but when a mother's life is at stake you can't legislate morality. You can't take away the rights of other human beings that are born because of your trauma. I went through this trauma too.
Love is God. God is LOVE. That is all God and The Great Peacemaker came to teach us. "Love your enemy and your neighbor as yourself. Help the poor. Leave judgment and vengeance to God." (That means unless you are God, stop ruining other people's lives.
|Does this man resemble the humility of Christ in his gold, castle and jewelry? And didn't Christ command: 'Call no other man Father (other than God) upon the Earth"??|
