When did the Catholic church decide it should oppose abortion? Was any rationale offered? I know the church insists human life begins at conception, thus a fetus is deemed a human being.

One surefire way to improve the lives of billions of poor people would be to use the money that was slated for misguided "green energy" efforts and use it to provide clean water to those who do not have it.
That is honestly one of the more ignorant statements I've heard in a while. Green technology is just the thing to conserve and clean water. Our waste water treatment facility -- which once used traditional septic and wasted / polluted 50,000 gallons of water each day -- today, through green technology (biomimicry, photo voltaic, geothermal and basing water reclamation on natural process of breakdown by bacteria) cleans the water using no chemicals at all and returns all the water to the underground aquifer. We produce more energy than we use: clean energy: infinite source of clean energy.

You are as bright as a bedpost, and as compassionate and as understanding as one.

Yu see, this Secularism needs a bit of revision. It is on those in the first reflection, in grouping of G Marcel, that they treat human life as an object to be scrutinized and there is great need to know and think if what yu are thinking of, particulary abortion, was done unto you. Just take some tym to reflect upon it.

Since these threads emerge from a letter to the editor about Catholicism, it does well to point out the Church's condemnation of birth control devices.

Mr Reel, honestly now, this coming from a person who believes in Rachel Carson??? I am compassionate, and I do not want to see millions more die as they did with the idiotic banning of DDT through wasting resources on "green" efforts. Those who advocate "green" solutions usually are narcissistic and do not care about how many people die as a result of their misguided efforts, but they "feel" good.

You probably believe in carbon credits?

Good point. What do you make of the fact that the world's population is growing exponentially? How does that play into our planet of limited resources?

BTW, my bedpost went to Yale and works down at the homeless shelter.

I wouldn't quite say "green" people are dumber than a bedpost, but they are close. You have no argument whatsoever Mr Reel, so once again you revert to posting juvenile comments.

So you are saying our waste water treatment doesn't work! You live with a degree of cynicism, and ignorance, that renders you useless. Sorry, but I have no more time for you.

yikes, Mr. McCarthy - if you are the McCarthy family of Lee that I have seen all my life at Mass at St. Mary's Church in Lee, I want to ask you - what went wrong? You need to start watching EWTN ASAP and pray for the Holy Spirit to help you right now. It is obvious to me that you are having great doubts about the Catholic faith and I don't want to see you fall away any more. Pray the Holy Spirit help you follow Truth and for the wisdom to recognize lies we are being fed every day.

Christ was born poor. He came to serve the poor. You go to a poor country and you tell that mother and father that they should not have children because they are...poor? children/families make us RICH. it's not all about "quality of life" as you - in this richest nation on earth - see it. we are so selfish! people I know will have one child - maybe two - why? because they want to live in a mcmansion and have expensive cars and go out on expensive trips...don't want to have more kids - "too expensive" - but they want the expensive STUFF.
well, in those poor countries, maybe the babies and families is all they have, and it is good enough for them. God Bless them!
the STUFF is not going to help us achieve eternal life.

AJB, I do hope that those who have large families can at least feed them. Anyway, I think children are God's greatest gift. Due to "ladies' problems" I could only have one, but I'm thankful I could be blessed with a child! My "child" is now going on 33 :)

Not quite getting your need to say this to the very bright Yoga Man. Is this some alias Jeffrey in some alternative universe?
