Ivanhoe: "The Church is the most staunch and consistent advocate of the Sanctity of Life notion."
Indeed that's what I said. It is interesting to note however in which context I placed this statement. It was placed in the context of the present opponents of the Roman-Catholic Church and Faith, among whom the advocates of a new Culture of Death, trying to discredit the Church in any way possible by accusing Her of all sorts of things in order to gain points in the present ideological and political battles. The Church needs to be discredited at any price, not because her opponents care about the victims of the Spanish Inquisition, not because they care about the pain and agony of sex-offenders's victims, not because they care about the fate of Shoa victims or about AIDS patients in Africa. No, they simply hop from one accusation to the other. The only red thread and motivation that can be detected is the zeal to discredit Her in any way possible.
My statement about the Roman-Catholic Church being the most staunch and consistent advocate of the Sanctity of Life notion in the debate about abortion, infanticide, voluntary and involuntary euthanasia, suicide, assisted suicide and eventually a new form of eugenics, is a statement belonging in the present debate between the so called Culture of Life and this new Culture of Death. This debate doesn't merely consist of words on the part of the advocates of the Culture of Death. No, they practise what they preach. The killing is allready taking place. You just need to look around you and acknowledge the facts.
This thread also can be placed in the context of trying to discredit the Church ...... if not, what is it all about then, David C ?
