Your comments that appear in the American news service, Catholic News Agency, were sorrowful. Unlike Europe’s gradual decline over the last several decades, America still believes in Christ and the Faith. The culture war is upon us but the war for America’s soul is far from lost. Your comments that confuse the Faithful is not helpful. And the Faithful tire of this confusion from the Church. As the editor in Chief of a grand newspaper, you could have said something less than “Obama is not a pro-abortion president.” You pointed out rightly that Mr. Obama approached the issue with some class, but Mr. Obama’s manner and demeanor does not diminish or eliminate his pro-abortion record as a prior state senator or U.S. senator. Further his record since ascending the U.S. presidency is clearly pro-abortion. He may want to dialog with respect, but the reality is that his positions are pro-abortion and his position leads to the death of the innocent.
Your expression otherwise is a deep insult to any person who can simply observe the actions of others. I am sorry to say, but in my opinion your absolute statement that Mr. Obama is not a pro-abortion president is good old-fashioned scandal and in some ways, treacherous. The clerics and laity who have stepped up and tried to forge an articulate and respectable pro-life vanguard in America have been betrayed. Your position on Mr. Obama is profoundly grieving to many Christians.
