|Slogans, eh! What did they ever do for human rights?|
~ Archbishop Diarmuid Martin
Protect the Pope is right to be critical of these remarks made during a homily at a Mass at St Dominick's Church, Dublin this past weekend. The pro-abortion camp are not shy and never have been of using slogans to propagandise for their cause of death. If it is not met by slogans that defend the unborn child and mother then the battle over truth is only going to go the way of those who employ lies to justify the massacre of the innocent unborn. That Archbishop Martin said this despite a turn out of 60,000 at the Rally for Life, it hardly sends to them a message of the Church's passionate and steadfast support. The Catholic Church's Shepherds should surely be leading the Laity in defending the unborn, rather than the Laity leading the Church to do so.
