The erroneous and nasty idea that someone in public life can be both Catholic and pro-abortion is once again front and center in the news.
Just recently a public figure said, "I have a traditional Catholic personal position, but I am very strongly supportive that women should make these decisions and government shouldn't intrude."
Scandalous gobbledygook has been the case for some years now. The hierarchy, for the most part, will avoid commenting on this or doing anything about it. Frankly this is not really all that shocking to me. Over the years, a pattern has developed – one that is troubling in many ways.
