Catholics won't back initiative saying life begins at conception

There are 33 comments on the Great Falls Tribune story from Mar 4, 2008, titled Catholics won't back initiative saying life begins at conception. In it, Great Falls Tribune reports that:

“Since it affects such a wide range of laws with very little definition, I just don't think it would ever stand up (in court).”

HELENA - Supporters of an anti-abortion ballot initiative that would establish conception as the beginning of life won't receive campaign help from the Catholic Church in Montana. via Great Falls Tribune

Michelle and Kate, remember that Judas was one of the Twelve. Today we can expect that we will have Judases amongst our clergy, and we can also expect to have cowards amongst our clergy too. The Church is divine as she was instituted by Jesus Christ, but her membership is human, and wherever you have humans, you have corruption to varying degrees. Pray for the Church. When Jesus told Peter that the gates of Hell would not prevail against His Church, He made a promise. And Jesus always keeps His promises.

I'll just keep hoping that this monument to cruelty, oppression, bigotry and homophobia will eventually be forced to close its doors due to bankruptcy. That is exactly what it deserves.

Don't forget to pray for the children raped by your church's priests, who were protected by your church's pimps.

They aren't backing the bill because it is meaningless. It establishes nothing, won't stop a single abortion, and if they try to apply it to abortion it will be overturned so fast the legislators won't know what hit them.

People are already makign noise about ending tax-exempt status of churches that violate the tax codes concerning political activity; I doubt the RCC wants this used as an example of their influence.

The church is trying to defend life, period. Drawing a line somewhere will diminish that argument. That will open the door for the morning after pill and other items used to prevent conception.

And before we start blasting the faults of the Catholic church, we should take a look at our own faults as well.

Anyone without sin in here?(No, Ocean56. You are not either. So don't try it...)
