We Irish come with more buttons, I think.

I dunno; I've read popes from hundreds of years ago gauging the state of the world just as dreadfully--and most of 'em hadn't even visited America! But you've hit on something about social justice that's true; we shouldn't be paying anyone to do what ought to be done for free.

Deacon Dan, I guess I am simple minded enough to believe that abortion, no matter by whom it is procured, or the circumstances, is murder, plain and simple. It matters not what nebulous terms in which this heinous crime is couched -- murder is murder. I weep for the souls who have been tricked into this complacent, relativistic coma. I bear them no ill will, but I do pray for their eternal souls. We've been lead to believe that somehow Hell does not exist, but it truly does. It is just tragic how this evil has been foisted upon us.

Lynne, thank you for your comment. I wouldn't call you simple minded at all--You are correct: abortion is murder. I'm not going to budge on that one iota. Nor will I support positions--verbal, political, blogs, etc.--that are "soft" on abortion. It is a tradgedy that we live in times where many great evils are foisted upon us. Abortion is just one them. Nevertheless, I still have faith that God will answer our prayers and deliver us from evil. One thing to keep in mind though--while the world around us is busy (working quite hard actually) in a partnership with evil, we must work even harder in the partnership with goodness.
