View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Bishop Tobin - No to abortion vote

"I don't know about you, dear reader, but I could never vote for a candidate - of any party for any office - who supports laws that promote or allow the death of thousands of children in the hideous crime of abortion. I just don't want that on my conscience."

-- Bishop Thomas T. Tobin, Oct 31, Rhode Island Catholic

In the rest of the column he takes on the notion of "equality" of social issues. Abortion, he contends, takes precedence.
