"Pope Benedict doesn’t fit our stereotypes! Whatever shall we do?"

I love how the media types keep talking about “another side of Benedict” or a “change.”

That a person who authentically believes the full truth of Christianity should also practice it is dumfounding to them.

That Benedict should show compassion to the handicapped, or victims of sexual abuse, should surprise no one. That Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton would show genuine compassion to anyone would be the real surprise.

The incident in 2003 with the reporter questioning him about Fr. Maciel (who, of course, Benedict silenced as Pope) had more to do with the reporter’s attitude than it did with the accusations against Maciel.

They think that taking a “hard line” on birth control somehow means he’s not compassionate??? Birth control, which is about the most self-centered and materialistic act a person can do????

"I cannot tell you one thing that happens in an abortion clinic that is not a lie."

Carol Everett ran an abortion clinic for six years in the early 1980s, and says that she, personally, made approximately $13000 a month from the abortions. She says her “telephone counselors” were really just salespeople, trained to convince the girls that abortion was their only option.

Then she had a conversion experience.

Now, she runs a chain of crisis pregnancy centers, the Heidi Group, named for her own child she aborted.

Here’s her story on the Priests for Life site.

Funeral in Detroit for 18 Aborted Babies

Bishop John Quinn, one of the auxiliary bishops of Detroit, is offering a funeral for 18 aborted babies, whose bodies were found inside a dumpster.

This has been done before, but it’s the first I’ve heard of a bishop doing it. Cool!
