You can’t be Pro-Choice and Catholic

This week, Illinois passed the most extreme pro-abortion state legislation in America — with some Catholic lawmakers taking the lead in pushing forward this anti-life bill.

In response, Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois, has issued a public decree communicating to his priests that all Illinois Catholic lawmakers who voted for the state’s new Reproductive Health Act, or for an earlier 2017 bill that legalized taxpayer funding of abortions, should not present themselves to receive Holy Communion in the Diocese of Springfield “without first being reconciled to Christ and the Church.” The decree, and an accompanying letter, were mailed earlier in the week to all of the Catholic lawmakers who voted in favor of the bills.

BIDEN: Too middle ground – Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made one thing clear this past weekend at the California Democratic Party state convention: So-called middle ground candidates like Joe Biden aren’t progressive enough and are too willing to play nice with Republicans.

Noah Rothman (Commentary Magazine) offers a much more important reason to keep Joe Biden out of the White House:

“There may be no greater incongruity in American politics than that between the unilateral powers vested in the president on matters related to foreign affairs and how little the electorate cares about foreign affairs. Absent an acute crisis, events on the world stage just aren’t foremost on American minds. Joe Biden’s ascension to the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination would alter that equation, in part because he spent over a decade as the ranking member and then chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. But Biden’s efforts to favorably contrast himself with the Trump administration on foreign policy will be complicated by his record of astoundingly bad judgment.”

NRA tweet

GILLIBRAND: The NRA responded to Gillibrand’s attack by posting a letter she wrote to them in 2008. In 2009, she bragged about her 100% A rating from the NRA and said she kept two guns under her bed. In 2018, she said she is now embarrassed by her previous views on gun rights.

MOULTON: Don’t ask me. I never heard of him either. – He’s no different than the rest. And he’s polling at less than 1%. [:59]

SWALWELL: He’s a pathetic loser – But hey, he can change a diaper!  So clearly, he should be POTUS! Right?! Right?!

BUTTIGIEG: He’s real sorry about being a white male, which is more than can be said for Bernie “If you write a best seller, you can be a millionaire too” Sanders.
