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.

30 pieces of silver

Douglas Kmiec is finally getting his reward for supporting President Obama despite the President's radical position on abortion: He's been nominated to serve as the U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Malta.

Kmiec, a Catholic law professor who describes himself as "pro-life", backed Obama during the 2008 election - drawing fire from fellow Catholics and pro-lifers. He claimed that Obama's policies would reduce abortions, even though Obama's record had been to support unrestricted abortion, and even the killing of aborted children born alive.

Despite Kmiec's optimism (or self-delusion?), the Obama administration has been pushing a pro-abortion agenda. The latest move was Tuesday's proposal that tax-payer monies be used to pay for abortions in the District of Columbia.
