You cannot be both "Catholic" and "Pro-Choice".
Democrats, particularly in northeastern Pennsylvania LOVE to claim fidelity to both. I see more "Obama 08" bumper stickers in the parking lots of Catholic churches than anywhere else.
These folks are for all intents and purposes heretics.
Oh NO! Not the "H" word! We don't use that word in our modern touchy-feely Catholic church anymore.
Maybe it's time it made a comeback.
Webster defines heretic as
a dissenter from established religious dogma; especially : a baptized member of the Roman Catholic Church who disavows a revealed truth.So we see that someone who advances teachings that are contrary to the Catholic faith is a dissenter, and can also rightly be called a heretic. If you publicly disagree with the Church, go to pro abortion rallies, put a pro abortion bumper sticker on your car, work for or vote for a pro abortion candidate, you place yourself outside Holy Mother Church and are a heretic. When you commit a grave sin such as promoting murder, you commit a mortal sin (remember those?) and you separate yourself from the Church.
So stop and think when you are attending your next Mass of the travesties taking place in that very same church. All the profanations of Our Lord as his precious body is handed out to heretics who go to Mass and receive Him with grave sin on their souls. Make an extra act of reparation to Our Lord for this.
And pray for the self professed "pro-choice Catholics" that they beg God for forgiveness and repent of their sins.
Then they may be called "Catholic".
