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.

NY's "Catholic" Senator votes for abortion funding

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Hillary Clinton's newly sworn-in replacement in the Senate, continued her NARAL-pleasing ways January 28.

She was one of 18 Catholic Senators to vote against an amendment that would reinstated the Mexico City Policy and ensured that no U.S. tax dollars fund abortions in other countries.

The former Congresswoman had previously earned a score of 100 from the extremist abortion group NARAL - meaning she voted their way every time, even when the measures clearly went against the teachings of the Church.

Looks like she will keep that score intact.
