"life begins at conception and ends at birth." -- Rep. Barney Frank

[For the Pope it seems], "life begins at conception and ends at birth." -- Rep. Barney Frank

More on the disgusting move of blessing and welcoming back into the fold a bishop who denies the murder of 6 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals and other outcasts while, in the same breath, denouncing Obama and his efforts to bring some decency to family planning efforts worldwide.

The Audacity of Pope

Sat Jan 31, 2009 at 10:26:06 AM PST

The Vatican may have chosen the wrong week to protest President Obama's reversal of the Mexico City policy banning federal funds from international family planning groups. Even as a Vatican spokesman blasted Obama's decision as "the arrogance of a person who, having the power, thinks they can decide on life and death," Pope Benedict XVI restored a Holocaust-denying Bishop to his station within the church. Meanwhile in California, federal authorities revealed an investigation into allegations the Diocese of Los Angeles covered up the sexual abuse of minors by priests.

I love the line: "the arrogance of a person who, having the power, thinks they can decide on life and death." Isn't that a pretty exact description of the hierarchy's position?
