Well the secular press is trying to paint all pro-life voters, anti-abortion as they call us, as right wing, name-calling, fanatics hurling racial slurs against African-American law makers and issuing death threats to democrats who voted for the Health bill and caved on abortion funding.
How are Catholics to respond? We are to use the political means available to us to advance Christ's message and the agenda Christ has given to the Church. We are to do so in a loving, non-hateful way. Death threats to living persons is not a part of the Church's pro-life agenda or consistent ethic of life.
The same goes for this blog and comments submitted. These comments must be Christ-like while still challenging those who are divisive in our Church. True division comes about when we are disobedient to the Faith, Morals and Canon Laws of the Church as well as Natural Law. Everything that the Church teaches and all of her discipline are codified and out in the open. We have only one Pope, one bishop in this diocese and one Magisterium in the universal Church. There is a hierarchy of beliefs and authority and no one trumps the pope and the bishops in union with him, even on the national level, let alone diocesan level.
Remember the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!"
