Nun Channels Obama, Says Abortion "Beyond My Pay Grade."

*subhead*Nooo.*subhead*
You'll remember Barack Obama at Saddleback, telling Pastor Rick Warren that deciding when life begins is "above my pay grade."

It was a shockingly shallow answer for a man who'd already voted to legalize the killing of babies outside the womb.

It's an even worse answer for a Catholic nun. Much worse.

Sister Simone Campbell of Nuns on the Bus fame is at the Democratic convention and she had a brief conversation with John McCormack of The Weekly Standard:
...how does Campbell, a Catholic who says she believes abortion is the taking of an innocent life, weigh her budget concerns against her opposition to abortion? It turns out there’s not a dilemma because, as Campbell told me this afternoon at the Charlotte Convention Center, she doesn’t know if she supports laws protecting the lives of unborn children.

TWS: On the legal question, do you think there should be penalties against abortion doctors? I mean, should it be illegal to perform abortions?

CAMPBELL: That’s beyond my pay grade. I don’t know.
Hmmmm. Wonder why the Vatican felt the need to oversee the LCWR?

  1. I'm 64, and if I were a delegate at the klaven (when you-know-where freezes over) I'd be one of the young'uns. Where did they find all the old, bobble-heading hippies?

  2. To deny life, to despise the fruit of the loins to death, and claim ignorance is not leadership, not from Campbell and not from Obama.

  3. Mary De Voe: your famous line which gives such a true and lasting impression when it comes to abortion: "Scraping the Will of God out of the mother's womb." Amen.

  6. Weird... when I first read your headline, I thought it said:

    Beyond My Gay Pride.

    Freudian slip I guess.

  7. These useful idiots have not learned the lesson of the pen given to Sister Carol Keehan by the devil himself. And here they are being useful idiots this time for a bus ride. Stupid cows come to mind, I don't know why.

  9. "Sister" Simone is the new darling of the liberals. She is one sad example of a nun.

  10. The Christ the Bridegroom nuns don't seem to think it's above their pay grade!
