“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)

Conservative Catholics Need Not Apply...

From LifeNews.com:

"The Democratic Party is refusing to invite the highest ranking Catholic official to its national convention that begins next week. Denver Archbishop Charles J. Chaput is the leader of the largest religious denomination in Colorado but he won't take part in the convention.

...Chaput isn't getting an invitation -- and it likely stems from his comments saying faithful Catholics should obey the Church's pro-life teachings and not support candidates, like Obama, who support abortion."

From Belief Net:

"Advance applause goes to the Democratic National Convention Committee for its decision to include Sister Helen Prejean author of Dead Man Walking in the historic interfaith service opening the 2008 Democratic Convention in Denver on August 24th."

A socially liberal, high-profile Catholic gets invited to hold a prayer service and be photographed; a dogmatically conservative, high-profile Catholic can't get in the door.

It is very forward looking to not invite Archbishop Chaput considering he is on the fast-track to becoming a Cardinal, a prince of the Church, and his influence will only grow. I guess them Dem's didn't consult Obama's Catholic Advisory Council. Oh wait, he dissolved that farce.

Sr. Helen Prejean should respectfully turn down her invitation for the disrespecting of the Archbishop, and for many other reasons.

Since Obama and abortion have become intertwined, I hope you don't mind if I post an address to another blog that has courageously revealed some (more) dirty truths regarding Margaret Sanger and her evil invention of Planned Parenthood.

With the election not far off, I think this post is timely and may help those teetering between the abortion issue to see just what they're actually advocating:
