“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Human Rights after the Birth Canal

Today, Amnesty International issued a report today blasting the U.S. for their treatment of terrorist detainees at Guantanamo Bay:

"The U.S. must close Guantánamo detention camp and secret detention centres, prosecute the detainees under fair trial standards or release them, and unequivocally reject the use of torture and ill-treatment,"

One year ago, Amnesty International issued a statement moving from an abortion-neutral stance, to committing themselves completely to the Pro-Abortion cause:

"Amnesty International committed itself to strengthening the organization's work on the prevention of unwanted pregnancies and other factors contributing to women's recourse to abortion and affirmed the organization's policy … emphasizing that women and men must exercise their sexual and reproductive rights..."

Now let's get this complete farce straight: Amnesty is FOR giving complete rights to terrorists who would unleash chemical and biological warfare on innocent people if they could, but AGAINST giving the most innocent of human life any rights whatsoever.

As a side note: Upon last year's statement and to his credit, Catholic Bishop Michael Evans, of Cambridgeshire, England, decided to resign the organization after being a member of Amnesty for 31 years. Kudos Bishop.
