Catholic Cannibalism

I never knew.

Bishop Finn of Kansas City is, according to one Catholic commentator, pro-abortion.

Bishop Finn’s newspaper editor is outraged.

More from the ascendancy of the Right: conform or be labeled not of the Tribe.

  1. David D. says:

    One need not be a desperate politician seeking reelection, like our president, to consider the political consequences of mass amnesty for illegal aliens.

  2. Mike says:

    “Desperate politician”? What on earth are you smoking?

  3. Jack Smith says:

    David – There is not a single immigration proposal that would result in citizens from the illegal population in advance of the 2012 elections. The president is not fishing for votes from them here. He is hoping Republicans will react by pissing off already registered Hispanic voters – and they are obliging.

  4. David D. says:

    I am under no illusion that Obama is trying to ramrod millions of illegal aliens onto the voter rolls in advance of 2012. However, as your claim that the president hopes for a backlash against the GOP by Hispanic voters, suggests, political considerations obviously shape his views on immigration. Despite his 2008 platform, his support for the failed DREAM Act, and the DOJ’s suit in USA v. Arizona, the president has really been dragging his feet on immigration reform and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus is getting antsy.

    Notwithstanding Mike’s thoughtful comment on the matter, Obama is in fact a desperate politician as is any incumbent president who finds himself in the unusual position of facing a serious challenge to reelection. The president’s assassination/execution of OBL will only take him so far.

  5. Mike says:

    David, I’m sorry, but “desperate” is a silly word that you chose for its shock value. Your “thoughts” aren’t.

  6. Liam says:

    Who exactly is Obama’s serious challenger? For a serious challenge in an election, the serious challenger needs to be identified. Hmm.

    Almost all incumbent presidents in the past 30 years at this stage of their first term would have been considered vulnerable. Even Ronnie Reagan had a worse disapproval rating in 15 months before his reelection than Obama does now 18 months before he is up for reelection.

    • David D. says:

      A fair point but if you’ll recall, Bush I’s approval rating after Desert Storm scared off many potential high profile Democratic challengers which allowed the lower profile Clinton to emerge from a diminished field. The current crop of possible GOP nominees is hardly daunting yet a serious challenge seems likely if Obama does not get a fortuitous bump in the economy.
