Molochite Catholics

California Catholic Daily reports on “Molochite Catholics”

This story is reminiscent of the Catholic MP vote in Canada on same sex marriage.

Eighty percent of California Catholics in the U.S. House defied the Church by voting in favor of the sacrifice of children for embryonic stem cell research

News from the Trenches

In ancient times, pagans and idolatrous Israelites offered human sacrifices by throwing babies and young children into fires as holocaust offerings to the false god Moloch. In A.D. 2007, neo-pagan and idolatrous “Molochite Catholics” are determined to offer young children -- individual human beings in the embryonic stage of their lives -- as sacrifices to the possibility that cannibalizing their stem cells will provide cures for other human beings.

On June 7, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 247-176 to pass Senate Bill 5, sponsored by Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, allowing human embryonic stem cell research. California’s congressional delegation, the nation’s largest, voted 41-11 to pass the bill. Sixteen of the 41 identify themselves as “Catholic” -- 15 Democrats and one Republican.

Not one California Democrat, regardless of religious affiliation, voted against this modern-day version of child sacrifice. Of the seven Republicans who voted in favor of Reid’s bill, one identifies himself as Catholic.

Altogether, 16 of California’s 20 Catholics in the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of embryonic stem cell research. Just four Catholics, all Republicans, opposed the bill.

Thus, 80 percent of California Catholics in the U.S. House voted against the clear, unequivocal teachings of the Catholic Church, in which they claim membership. If the 16 “Molochite Catholics” who voted for child sacrifice had voted instead to follow the teachings of their Church, the vote of the California congressional delegation would have been 27-25 against the bill.

Sorry, I laughed when I read this.

I just called the state "Moloch" in that post you commented on.

Must be thinking along the same lines (yes, I know it's not original).

Okay have posted links to all three of your posts on Pell.

Thanks for giving the posts on Cardinal Pell a wider audience. As I stated in the posts, the issues are just too weighty for Catholics to be fooling themselves.

Yours was perhaps the only blog I've seen that even raised a doubt about the Cardinal's performance.

And yeah, I caught the "Moloch" reference in your posting.
