Pope Francis’s official statement says, “Paying tribute to the steadfast commitment shown by Nelson Mandela in promoting the human dignity of all the nation’s citizens and in forging a new South Africa built on the firm foundations of non-violence, reconciliation and truth, I pray that the late President’s example will inspire generations of South Africans to put justice and the common good at the forefront of their political aspirations.” (Source)
When the paradigm is shifted to include unborn children in the quest for human dignity, how can the highlighted text above be anything but cruelly false?
Mandela was actively pro-abortion, and not just an incidental player in the Great Genocide. There will be no praises from Socon or Bust for his legacy. The much good that he did do (or not) was wiped out by his pro-abort beliefs and political activism which sought the eradication of unborn children.
May God have mercy on his soul.
Pope Francis has disappointed us again, sadly. He has spoken in defense of the unborn on many occasions, but this time he dropped the ball.
The dignity and witness to unborn life requires refraining from praising political and social activists who seek to destroy human life, or at the very least giving some semblance of balance to the picture that is being painted of their tragic legacies.
Why is it guys like Mandela get a glowing tribute but the traditional Catholic recipients of +++Francis’s arrows in the Church get no quarter? Can someone explain to me how that calculus works, please?
No one in their right mind would be praising a pro-pedophile politician (at least not yet), even if he was the greatest “human rights defender” the world has ever seen. But when it comes to abortion, everyone and their dog gets a pass. There is no accountability or even pause by those who need to share their opinion of pro-abort activists before the tongue bathing and hand wringing begins on these activists’ accomplishments. (Mandela also had three wives and was a Communist, but these are mere trifles in the bigger debate, of course.)
This double-mindedness and mental illness concerning passing over the advocacy of abortion as having any real impact on a person’s legacy or the cult of personality that we worship over and above the truth really does have to end.
There are bleeding heart liberals all over the place, but it’s nothing like what we see from Church leadership today. The sad fact is that there are bleeding hearts… those ones belonging to the unborn, and they continue to bleed because of, or at the very least are not saved by, this kind of witness.
Have we forgotten the Commandment: THY SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS?
