Archbishop Joseph Naumann: Liar for Jesus


Photo by chaosinjune


What kind of a depraved liar do you have to be, to be Archbishop Joseph Naumann?

In related news, Archbishop Joseph Naumann, head of the Archdiocese of Kansas City, recently said that Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D) should not receive Holy Communion because of her support for abortion rights....

...

According to Naumann, Sebelius' veto last month of an abortion-related bill showed a lack of respect to Kansas lawmakers and residents, who are embarrassed that Kansas "has become infamous for being the late-term abortion center for the Midwest"....


Kansas law prohibits elective, and most medical, late second trimester abortions. The only late-term abortions performed in Kansas are those done to preserve the woman's life or avoid a "substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function" of the woman.

So according to this deranged person, Archbishop Joseph Naumann, Kansas lawmakers and residents are all psychopaths who are embarrassed that some pregnant women in their state have life-threatening medical problems.

What's next, a proposal from Archbishop Joseph Naumann to force all women with problem pregnancies into exile to neighboring states in order to achieve that most desirable statistic of all, zero late-term abortions in Kansas?

I guess objecting to science and facts is no longer enough for religionists. They're now objecting to the very existence of sick pregnant women. Because what better way to eradicate late-term abortions than to do away with the pregnant women who need them.

Or perhaps they are merely embarrassed that these women are putting their lives and health over the lives of their babies. As a mother, I am horrified that instead of medical science working on other options for the rare cases where a pregnancy is life threatening, the common recommendation is to kill the baby!

Obviously in true cases where pregnancy threatens the life of the mother, ethics may become very complicated (how do you best assist both mother and baby?), but there have been cases recently where pregnancies that were supposed to be fatal were survived just fine.

But don't expect that to do much in our selfish culture of "women's rights."
