an interesting election.
some good news for a change
liberal catholics what do you think?
archbishop naumann disallowed some politicians from receiving Holy Communion in his archdiocese because of their pro-abortion actions
he also severed ties with the girl scouts over their relationship with pph
What the “Seamless Garment” theological position did was put abortion on the same pedestal as other causes like welfare, race relations, social justice, and pacificism. The move enabled liberal Catholics to avoid weighing the gravity of certain objectionable sins, like abortion, against to others that require more discernment before prudential action.
In short, liberal Catholics justified voting for pro-abortion politicians on the basis of issues like universal health care, affirmative action, and government-sponsored poverty programs under the false impression that failing to endorse such causes is just as grave as murdering an unborn child.
A true “Seamless Garment” theology, one untainted by leftism, simply means that pro-lifers cannot neglect other issues or believe that abortion is an excuse to avoid taking responsibility for those in need.
Cupich’s version of the “Seamless Garment” was defeated this week and the unborn will surely benefit because of it.
