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?
