    My personal problem with her on the subject was her publicly lying that the Catholic Church didn't have a definite stand against abortion. If she wants to ignore it, that is her look out. Lying about it existing is just pitiful though.

    Isn't the Catholic Church against the death penalty, too?

    Until the Church fails to serve communion to every man and woman in America that practices birth control there's a duality to the hypocrisy.

    It is in general, but leaves a narrow window in which it is still morally justifiable. I am sure this question matters a greats deal to something.

    I don't know to many people who have a pc to talk about their personal use of birth control. Maybe that's just me.

    Yes & no. I actually asked my priest at one point because I was on birth control pills for hormonal issues due to medical issues. It was a temporary thing, but I wanted clarification.

    He said that the general rule is if it's for MEDICAL purposes then the Church sees it as any other type of medication/hormone therapy. If it's for actual BIRTH CONTROL then that's where it's a problem. It's the intent behind it along with what it's being used for.

    Between comparing a doctrine with an explicitly stated exception to one without? Hell, apples and oranges are both spheroid, too.

    I can see why it would seem material to someone totally oblivious to Catholic social teaching, how doctrines are set, what weight they are given, etc. Capital punishment and abortion are not parallel concepts, though, for a small army of reasons.

    See the Catechism. Even His Holiness is not going to get down in the weeds in a public address. Not that I think you actually care particularly much about the doctrinal reality of the thing.

    Yep. As I said, an explicit but narrow exception.

    "I have been saying this all along and feel that she should not be served communion while attending mass due to her pro-abortion stance. Pro - abortion is in complete contrast to the Catholic faith in which she claims to be devoted to."

    agree with you 100%. There must be more children in the world who priests can molest.
