Pro-Life News Bytes September 25, 2007

Stand to Reason reports on Scott Klusendorf’s posting describing what a pro-life pastor looks like.

Suzanne reports on more news about Archbishop Raymond Burke, Bishop of the Archdiocese of St. Louis Missouri. He’s my personal choice for the next Pope.
“No matter how often a bishop or priest repeats the teaching of the church regarding procured abortion, if he stands by and does nothing to discipline a Catholic who publicly supports legislation permitting the gravest of injustices, and, at same time, presents himself to receive Holy Communion, then his teachings ring hollow,” Burke writes.
