Pastor's Letter

40 Days for Life

10-06-2019Fr. John C. Granato

My Dear Friends,

October is a month dedicated to pro-life. Many people say that being pro-life is a political issue and that abortion has become a political issue. When they say this, what they really mean is that there is a separation of Church and State; hence the great number of Catholic politicians who support keeping abortion legal. The Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade has made sure that abortion would stay in the political realm thereby giving leverage to the faulty separation of Church and State argument.

Ironically, the same Catholic politicians who find abortion to be in line with their Catholic belief system, while at the same time decrying the bishops who are trying to make abortion illegal, are the same politicians who have no problem using Sacred Scripture to defend their more progressive causes. It does seem to many people that the separation of Church and State is only invoked by politicians and media when it comes to abortion whereas these same people use religion to further "social justice" projects.
