Sorry Mike that is not what I was taught by the FSC at Manhattan or by any Church Doctrine issued by the Church.

In our courses at Manhattan we used “Moral Guidance” by Healey and abortion and same sex marriage was not kosher. We studied the Principle of double effect and that didn’t apply either.

We were also taught to hate the sin and love the sinner. We were taught that to commit a mortal sin three things were required: 1) Serious Matter 2) Sufficient Reflection and 3) Full consent of the will.

I at least believe we agree that abortion is a serious matter. I also believe that there are many oppressed, badly treated women, who simply didn’t have the energy for sufficient reflection and/or full consent of the will. In any event it is not for me to judge such situations. That is God’s job.

It does not help that you tell others what you think without evidence that you have the qualifications in Moral Guidance etc. to give an opinion worth addressing.

It is as bad as going out on the web and finding tidbits of data and then giving cardiologic opinion about a heart condition.

So the bottom lime Mike,” me boyo” is my advice for you is to take two humility pills a day for a week and all will be OK.

If I haven’t stated the Theologically accepted rules of the church convict me and I’ll go back to the books and study some more.

If you don’t mind I will however grieve for the 60,000,000 aborted babies that our nation has seen since the Roe wade decision and almost of many very hurt mothers and fathers. I sure hope that God does not feel mocked by our actions and get sick of us.
