I had said the English hierarchy were silent on the British abortion vote. Well, the Archbishop came out with a rather bland statement, and I posted a link.

Here is Bishop O’Donohue’s statement on the recent barbaric vote in the British Parliament. Pretty good stuff. Much stronger, intelligent, articulate and straight.

One of the things which amuses and outrages me, is when the English feel they have to soften their language in order not to offend. So they will address an issue that is monstrously offensive with parlor room politeness. “I would like to say in some way that perhaps the question of abortion is something that saddens one. Are we not in danger of de-valuing human life in some way when we terminate a pregnancy?”
No. Use polite language for polite people and polite issues. When your dealing with barbarians, baby killers and tyrants. Use strong language.
