Cdl Dolan Slams Wacko Jebby Reese

No wishy-washy weasel-words here.  Cdl. Dolan came out swinging against the milquetoast twit Jesuit Fr. Reese.

...In his May 27 article in Religion News Service (RNS), Father Reese contended that defunding Planned Parenthood would be “irresponsible” while suggesting that a vote for pro-choice Democrats would somehow save more babies than electing pro-life Republicans....

...Father Reese’s strategy, Dolan wrote Friday, constitutes “a capitulation to the abortion culture, and a grave weakening of the powerful pro-life witness.”...

...“Catholic tradition and basic human rights teach us that every human being has an inalienable right to life that must be recognized and protected in law,” he wrote. “While the law is not the only means of protecting life, it plays a key and decisive role in affecting both human behavior and thinking. We cannot give up!”..

 At one time, Reese was the editor of America magazine, which is the voice of the US Jesuit order.  His editorial positions there were also controversial, so he was fired from that position under the reign of Benedict XVI.  Obviously, Reese cannot take a hint.

The Cardinal had more to say.

...The cardinal said that one of Reese’s “most troubling assertions” is that contraception should be employed to reduce abortions.

“In addition to rejecting the church’s teaching that contraception is itself morally flawed, and the fact that it can be medically harmful to women, his reasoning is questionable,” he wrote.

The fact is that more than half of women seeking abortions were already using contraception during the month they became pregnant, he added, while studies have shown that broad availability of contraception does not lessen abortion rates.

The cardinal also notes that many contraceptives are themselves abortifacients, meaning that they act by killing a newly conceived infant by preventing her from implanting in the womb....

That last graf is significant; Dolan was the Archbishop of Milwaukee and head of the Wisconsin Bishops' Conference when Gov. Doyle and the Abortion Party pushed through funding of abortifacient "birth control" pills and criminalized pharmacists who refused to provide birth control.

The Cardinal's piece is VERY good to see.  The cult of abortion has metastasized and now includes the growing numbers of suicides, which was entirely predictable.  In fact, both of them are predicated on the birth-control cult which teaches that life is merely a matter of convenience.  Pp. Paul VI told us that artificial birth control would have these consequences, and both John Paul II and Benedict XVI warned us of the growing culture of Death resulting from 'the pill.'

It seems that Fr. Reese has chosen un-wisely.  He is in great need of prayers, and the Jesuits should assign him to a bit of 'hermit time' to help him come back to the Faith.
