Really, does this surprise anyone?
Catholic colleges and law schools can proudly claim 65 alumni in the U.S. House of Representatives—which amounts to 15 percent of the House, about double the Catholic share of four-year colleges in the United States. But The Cardinal Newman Society has found that more than half of these Catholic college alumni—38 in total—have records on abortion that should mortify their alma maters.
Most of them are rated 100 percent by pro-abortion organizations such as the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) and Planned Parenthood. The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) has rated many of them at zero percent on important life issues.
The numbers are bleak, but political science professors from faithful Catholic colleges told the Newman Society that they are hopeful for a new generation of faithfully-educated politicians who are nurtured by proper instruction.
Go here to read the rest. I was struck by the description of the Congress critters and abortion. Catholic pro-aborts in Congress a generation ago would describe themselves as personally opposed to abortion and take the Mario Cuomo route that they could not impose upon others the position that they themselves embraced. This of course was always balderdash in that they had no problem in imposing endless other things on people, usually supporting ever more regulation by the State of most aspects of the lives of Americans. However, current pro-abort “Catholic” politicians no longer embrace this fig leaf and are forthright in their advocacy of the slaying of the unborn. And why not? The Church in this country has proven herself completely toothless when it comes to pro-abort “Catholic” politicians. Indeed they are honored again and again at “Catholic” colleges and universities and sometimes find employment at such institutions after their political careers are done. If the Church were really serious about the fight for the unborn, hordes of “Catholic” politicians who routinely vote for abortion would find themselves excommunicated next week. That they are not, speaks volumes about the priorities of many of the bureaucrats in cassocks who mislead Mother Church in this country.
