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.

Anti-Life Editorial

The local specimen of the slowly dying print media has an editorial today about embryonic stem cell research.

The editorial in today's Democrat and Chronicle is headlined "For less suffering," with the subhead, "Lifting of stem cell restrictions provides promise." You already know where this one is going.

It begins with, "No longer hamstrung by a restrictive federal policy ..." and then proceeds all gung ho on the "promise" of finding cures (at the expense of killing those pre-born children).




Oh, it makes mention of the adult stem cell research and says that should continue - failing to mention that research on both lines has shown that the adult stem cell one is the one that is actually producing results.

No wonder they have steadfastly refused to cover pro-life events - unless some pro-choicers show up to protest.

Maybe they are hoping that embryonic stem cell research will somehow help to increase their own dwindling subscription levels, or, more importantly, revenues. Perhaps as they kowtow to the pro-choice dark side they will get more ads from Planned Parenthood, the billion-dollar abortion business.

Oh, and the "adult" entertainment industry.
