Why are Supreme Court nominations so contentious these days? It didn’t used to be this way, you know. Abortion poisoned the process. Abortion has poisoned America. Abortion poisons everything. A Catholic priest, Fr. Edward Meeks, delivered a riveting homily (above) last weekend in his parish in Towson, MD. The theme pulled no punches:
“Abortion is the primary cause and the primary symptom of a society in a death spiral.”
He called out Catholic politicians, Joe Biden specifically, who oppose Church teachings in the public square:
“It’s time for faithful Catholics to stand up and say ‘enough is enough’ to all office holders who claim to be devout Catholics while publicly and obstinately contradicting the church and subverting Her teachings.”
You can listen to his entire homily above
You really should. Fr. Meeks points out that the stakes are high:
“We as a nation are staring into the abyss, stemming from our culture’s wholesale rejection of God and His law, a rejection manifested most tangibly in five decades of legalized abortion.”
He quotes the Venerable Fulton Sheen:
“A nation always gets the kind of politicians it deserves. If a time ever comes when the religious Jews, Protestants and Catholics ever have to suffer under a totalitarian state, which would deny to them the right to worship God according to the light of their conscience, it will be because for years they thought it made no difference what kind of people represented them in Congress, and because they abandoned the spiritual in the realm of the temporal.”
Pro-abortion politicians threaten our religious liberty, because they know that the Church is their most formidable adversary. Why do you think they shut down churches during a pandemic while allowing rioters to pillage our communities?
These politicians make the case that human abortion is really all about ‘healthcare’ and ‘women’s liberation.’ They put the temporal first at the expense of the spiritual.
Fr. Edward Meeks pushes back and implores his parish to “think with the Church.” Think … and vote … pro-life.
If we allow abortion, we can allow anything. You’ve seen what’s happened since Roe: 61 million unique human beings have deprived of their life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
Yes, we are staring into the abyss. You are called to vote with the Church by voting pro-life. It’s that simple.
