WaPo Gives Platform to Catholics United’s Abortion Disinformation

The Washington Post has now clearly joined the Soros-funded Catholics United disinformation campaign on abortion funding in ObamaCare as Chris Korzen, president of Catholics United has been given a guest spot in their religion column On Faith. Catholics United is known among the Catholic faithful for its consistent role in “muddying” the abortion issue in elections in order to help gain Catholic votes for Democrats. At the WaPo, Korzen pulls out his old bag of tricks to muddy up the waters for the mid-terms in races where ostensibly “pro-life” Democrats who voted for ObamaCare are being challenged.
Trick #1: Challenge the credentials and sincerity of single-issue pro-life groups and accuse them of being Republican operatives.
Self-proclaimed pro-life groups with close ties to the Republican Party…
This is an interesting accusation considering that Catholics United, while it claims to be pro-life, does not work to end abortion at all and itself has close ties to George Soros and the Democratic Party, a party pro-life activists have come to know as the “Party of Death“. It stands to reason that single-issue pro-life groups generally support Republican candidates over Democrats at election time, depending on individual candidates’ positions on the issue. This does not make them operatives of the Republican Party.
Trick #2: Tout the “Consistent Life Ethic”
People of faith who believe in a consistent ethic of life should be outraged and stand up for their values.
The “consistent life ethic”, also know as the “seamless garment”, is a theology developed by the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin of Chicago which contradicts clear Catholic teaching by placing abortion on an equal plane with war, the death penalty, “economic injustice”, or whatever else Bernardin himself deemed to be a “life issue”. Michael Voris, of Real Catholic TV, and others among the Catholic Faithful, are working very hard to expose the Bernardin crowd and their machinations at the USCCB. Though opposed to Catholicism’s clear teaching that abortion trumps other issues, the “consistent life ethic” is held up by progressive dissenting organizations as “optional” Catholic teaching in order to take abortion off the table and help obtain Catholic votes for Democrats. Catholic Culture contributor Diogenes explains the mission of those who tout the “consistent life ethic” also known as “seamless garment” theology.
