Another “Catholic” theology professor from Boston College also signed the letter, the feminist writer Lisa Sowle Cahill, past president of the Catholic Theological Society of America. This woman, in an October 16, 2008, article for the National Catholic Reporter, excoriated Archbishop Burke, Bishop Martino, and other prelates for using their influence in educating Catholics about the moral consequences of voting for pro-abortion candidates. She took offense that Martino dared to call abortion “homocide.” Then she writes:
Abortion is a moral tragedy for Catholics and many Americans. But when the Catholic church is perceived to be cheerleaders for one political party a rich faith tradition is badly damaged and loses its prophetic voice. Bishops should correct Catholic politicians who misrepresent Catholic teaching on life and justice issues in public interviews.
A moral tragedy! Why, Ms Cahill? And why is abortion a “moral” tragedy, if it is not exactly what Bishop Martino said it was. And, in your mind, are the aborted babies not to be counted among the “many Americans” victimized by this “tragedy”? Why are the pro-aborts afraid to talk about the baby? Past head of the Catholic Theological Society of America and she does not think abortion is homicide. At least her fellow feminist, atheist writer Camille Paglia, admits what everybody that can think knows in their heart: abortion is murder. “I have always frankly admitted that abortion is murder,” she once wrote in a piece published on Salon.com website, “the extermination of the powerless by the powerful.” Nevertheless Professor Paglia boasts that she is still a “firm supporter” of abortion “rights.”
