Hooray for Catholics who stand up for their principles.

Hooray for Catholics who stand up for their principles.

California Gov. Gray Davis, a nominal Catholic, was banned from continuing a tradition of delivering gifts to a Catholic home for troubled children because he’s pro-abortion.

For the last 20 years, the St. Patrick Home for Children in Sacramento has had California governors deliver Christmas gifts to the kids, but Msgr. Edward Cavanaugh won’t let the governor step on school grounds unless he signs a letter disavowing his pro-abortion views and asks the Church for forgiveness.

    “We don’t let any pro-abortion people in our grounds here,” Cavanaugh said. “He should get his life together and he should change his whole philosophy on the unborn. He should stand up for the sanctity of human life.”

    Davis refused to sign the letter, and instead invited children from the home to the state Capitol to fetch their gifts.

I hereby nominate Msgr. Cavanaugh as the next Archbishop of Boston.

You may ask, what about the other years of Gov. Davis’ term? Until this year, Davis had aides bring the gifts because he usually spends the holidays in Los Angeles. When asked about former Gov. Jerry Brown’s visits—he is pro-abortion, too—Cavanaugh said:

    “This was before this thing became an issue.” He also claimed that Davis used his visit “for political purposes.”
