Blog: Pro-Choice Nun Continues to Scandalize and Confuse

Donna Quinn is a professed religious with the Dominicans.  She used to escort women who are getting abortions until her order rebuked her.  But that did not change her mind and heart about abortion.  At the defeat of the amendment that will disallow the use of tax monies to pay for abortion in the health care bill, Donna stated that it was providential to happen during the feast of the Immaculate Conception.

“I was reminded of being with men and women from the Unitarian faith tradition last year as they celebrated Mary who by her assent, they believed, was one of the first women in the New Testament to express Choice,” Quinn said.

She also referenced the Vatican’s crackdown on dissenting voices, citing an article in the magazine "Conscience" published by the organization Catholics for Choice.
Quoting writer Jeannine Gramick, Quinn wrote: “Faithful and respectful dissent is vital to the life of the church. It enables the church community to think, to deliberate, to debate and to grow in relationship to one another and in relationship to God. We cannot afford to let our dissenters be silenced. They are a gift to our church."

The idea of a "faithful and respectful dissent" is how many well meaning Catholics have been duped to supporting the choice to abort one's child.  A few theologians have caused this confusion by presenting ideas  in isolation and out of context.  So certain people, specially politicians, picked and chose those ideas that served their cause whether those principles applied or not.
Faithful "dissent" applies to proposed teachings that are not yet officially defined e.g. limbo or ensoulment.  But the morality of abortion does not fall in this category because there has been a teaching on its immorality back in the first century as documented in the Didache "You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish [ie, murder]."

Video: US Education Czar's organization promoted child porn & sexual practices in the classroom

In contrast to the purity and holiness that St. John Bosco promoted, watch how the US Education Czar's and his organization promoted child porn and deviant sexual practices to children in the classrooms.  I originally planned to transfer my kids to  Catholic schools when they start high school;  I may need to do it sooner.  It's going to be an added expense but the spiritual life of my kids are worth it.
