This from the Pope won’t get as much lefty attention as that stuff about economics now, will it?

Pope Francis has criticized abortion as evidence of a “throwaway culture” that wastes people as well as food.

No, it won’t, will it?

  1. It’s a good thing we are now rich enough to throw away food. My grandfather once boxed my ears when I was a boy because I casually binned a half-eaten sandwich. His generation spent their formative years in grinding poverty and in constant danger of malnutrition. I look forward to the day when people across Africa and Asia enjoy enough abundance that they can cheerfully discard an unfinished takeaway without worrying about it.

    Throwing away human lives and all their potential is a grave evil. Abortion was legalised in this country on the noble pretext of saving a few desperate girls from back alley abortionists. Would Parliament and the public back in the late 60s have approved if they’d known it would end up with hundreds of thousands of healthy unborn children terminated every year?

  2. The media only like the Pope because they think he isn’t a Catholic. They think he is, or can be spun as part of, their on-going anti-Catholic campaign.

    He is the John McCain, the Chris Christie, of the religious world – fine as long as he is attacking his own kind. Not so fine when trying to make a point about their friends.

    They might be right. But they are probably wrong. And one day they will realise it.
