A typical, hackneyed response, by a “pro-choice” Roman Catholic, such as Vice President Joe Biden is “I accept my church’s teaching that life begins at conception, but I’m not going to force it upon those who disagree.” Can you run that by me again? You believe that life begins at conception, which necessarily means that at conception a human being exists, but you will not interfere with the killing of a human being? It is a contradiction in logic, philosophy, science and everything else. Click here and listen to VP Biden and Congressman Ryan describe their view on abortion during the Vice President debate of 2012. What the Vice President is saying is that some human beings can be killed at will if one chooses to. Secondly, he says that we cannot force those who disagree – what? What universe are you from? Every society in this universe has laws against killing human beings. In the U.S. we even have laws against killing animals gratuitously. What the Vice President is saying is pure nonsense, yet this view is widely held in the liberal Catholic community, as well as with most liberal Christians.
The Vice President, in the debate refered to earlier, states that he’s “a practicing Catholic my whole life.” As Lieutenant Columbo would say, “can I ask you one last question?” What makes you a Catholic, if you say that you believe in the Church teaching but anyone who disagrees can do whatever they want and you’re ok with it? How do you separate your private life from your public life?
Here is an example. During slavery in the early 1800s, the vice president would have said, I believe that slavery is wrong, as my church says, but I’m not going to force it upon those who have different views. This exactly what the Vice President is saying about abortion. This is the insanity of the liberal mind.
