The Globe’s theologians

The Globe’s theologians

The Boston Globe has the gall to presume to speak on Catholic teaching (and gets it wrong) as it blasts Republicans for saying there is a religious litmus test for federal judicial nominees.

The case is that of Alabama Attorney General William Pryor, who is strongly pro-life and believes, as the Church definitively teaches, that all abortion is the taking of an innocent human life, even in rape and incest. He also believes that Roe v. Wade was a bad judicial precedent. But what the Globe doesn’t say is that Pryor has pledged, and his record bears this out, that he will follow all applicable laws.

And then the newspaper then tries to muddy the water by saying that Republicans are hypocrites because Pryor is at odds with the Pope on the death penalty. But, of course, the Globe‘s editors are no theologians. They put the Pope’s personal observations on the death penalty on a par with a definitive apostolic teaching.

The fact is that anyone who believes, as a true Catholic should, that abortion is immoral and evil cannot be admitted to the judicial bench by Democrats. It’s as simple as that.
