Pro-Life Presidents, Scalia

40 Days for Life continues, sign up

Trump wins SC, and the Evangelical vote, while Jeb Bush drops out. I still have Cruz as 1st choice, Rubio as 2nd, Carson 3rd choice and Kasich 4th choice. Cruz is the true, principled conservative, (who has "a stellar record of defending Judeo-Christian principles; he’s a born-again believer; he has plenty of money; he’s thrown the liberal policy kitchen sink at Trump and he’s as smart as they come.") while Rubio, Jeb, Ben Carson and Kasich are all good men. I’m just not sure I trust Donald not to make deals that are not good for the country and the people. I worry that both Hollywood and Evangelicals are breaking for Trump.

Dr. James Dobson endorses Cruz:
“The sanctity of human life and traditional marriage are non-negotiable. Ted has been relentless in defending the institution of the family… “I know Ted. He’s a Christian family man of the utmost integrity.”

Justice Scalia on Pope Francis
When in 2013 Justice Scalia was asked what he thinks of Pope Francis, Scalia replied: “He’s the Vicar of Christ. He’s the chief. I don’t run down the pope.”

Jennifer Senior of New York Magazine, who was conducting the interview, pushed Scalia on the matter, emphasizing that Pope Francis said that the Church should focus less on divisive issues like abortion and homosexuality and give more attention to caring for the poor.

Scalia replied: “I think he’s absolutely right. I think the church ought to be more evangelistic. . . .
But he [Pope Francis] hasn’t backed off the view of the church on those issues. He’s just saying, ‘Don’t spend all our time talking about that stuff. Talk about Jesus Christ and evangelize.’ I think there’s no indication whatever that he’s changing doctrinally.”

Scalia continued: “I spent my junior year in Switzerland. On the way back home, I spent some time in England, and I remember going to Hyde Park Corner. And there was a Roman Catholic priest in his collar, standing on a soapbox, preaching the Catholic faith and being heckled by a group. And I thought, My goodness. I thought that was admirable. I have often bemoaned the fact that the Catholic Church has sort of lost that evangelistic spirit. And if this pope brings it back, all the better.”

Apr 4 Mon 10am - Join Bishop McManus and students from our Catholic schools for the annual Mass for Life on the Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, Monday, April 4, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at the Cathedral of St. Paul, 38 High St. Worcester. All are welcome!
