'Maybe you just can't be a good Catholic and president; maybe it's just a contradiction in terms. But it's SAD.'
"In my view there is an easy, universal barometer we can use to evaluate all cultures: how do they treat their most vulnerable members...those whom Jesus so aptly referred to as 'the least of these'? I would go so far as to say that a society that does not...defend the defenseless, [protect] all human life, is really not a civilized society after all. As for all my pro-choice friends out there, we can agree to disagree...and keep on arguing (until I win)." -Bobby Jindal, from Leadership and Crisis
"We will play the [CMP] videos on a screen outside the LA Gov. Mansion so those protesting my decision to defund
Planned Parenthood know why." -Bobby Jindal 'Meanwhile...57,762,169 abortions and 43 years later...suits her just fine...'
"America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has shown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts ~ a child ~ as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience.
"It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners. Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign." -Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, "Notable and Quotable," Wall Street Journal, 2/25/94
"We are only channels of grace to others in the measure that we are possessed of Gods grace ourselves. Let me repeat in the clearest words in my disposal. I would restate our thesis in two propositions.
"Proposition #1 There is no stopping abortion without an ocean of grace from Jesus Christ. No way will human means stop abortion
"#2 The principal source
of this grace is the Holy Eucharist
." -Fr. John A. Hardon
"A Nigerian bishop says that he has seen Christ in a vision and now knows that the rosary is
the key to ridding the country of the Islamist terrorist organization Boko Haram."
