Pro-Abortion Supporter on White Mass Committee

It seems that the Archdiocese has once again blown it big time!

Our colleague over at Restore DC Catholicism, shows that we have a Pro-Abortion supporter as part of the White Mass Committee. The White Mass is to remember and honor those with disabilities.

Now, we have a supporter of abortion - Mark Shriver -- on the committee. Considering how abortion is used by many to get rid of disabled children, what does the Cardinal and the Archdiocese have to say about this?

Here is part of his interview with Bob Levey in 202:

Takoma Park, Md.: Hello, thank you for taking our questions today.

Connie Morella is, of course, a Republican, despite her forays into more progressive issues/legislation. I will say that I have been very impressed with her work on women's issues, both domestic and international. I have supported her (though I am a democrat) because she has been such a leader on these issues.

So my question is, will women's issues-- family planning, basic education for girls, maternal and child health, trafficking-- be a strong part of your agenda if you are elected?

Mark Shriver: Women's issues are critically important and I will continue to fight for a women's right to choose; family planning funds; maternal and child heath funding and education for girls both here and abroad.

I used to look toward Washington as a beacon of orthodoxy. No more.

QUOTE: " A Catholic would be guilty of formal cooperation in evil, and so unworthy to present himself for Holy Communion, if he were to deliberately vote for a candidate precisely because of the candidate’s permissive stand on abortion and/or euthanasia. When a Catholic does not share a candidate’s stand in favour of abortion and/or euthanasia, but votes for that candidate for other reasons, it is considered remote material cooperation, which can be permitted in the presence of proportionate reasons. " UNQUOTE Cardinal Ratziner (Pope Benedict).
There is nothing in the USA today that is proportionate to the murder of approx 1 MILLION innocent babies each year.
On the internet see: "WORTHINESS to RECEIVE HOLY COMMUNION, General Principles" by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger to see statement in entirety.

Encourage all Catholics over age 15 to read the "CATECHISM of the CATHOLIC CHURCH, Second Edition" (dark green cover, first printed in USA in March 2000).
Be sure to include reading about the MORTAL sins of SCANDAL, and SACRILEGE.
