Pope Francis tweeted out a message yesterday.
I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers. May God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable
MSNBC reported it this way:
The annual march marks the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, and also coincides with the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting in D.C.
Despite the labels of “progressive” and “liberal” the pope have been given by some, his tweet reflects his past position on abortion, and is in line with the teachings of the Catholic church. Last year, the pope criticized those who saw abortion as “progressive” and, earlier this month, Francis compared abortion to the discarding of “dispensible objects.”
OK. Firstly, what in goodness’ name does the RNC’s winter meeting have to do with the March for Life?
And you’ve got to love how they say this tweet reflects the pope “past position on abortion.” Ha. You’ve got to understand, MSNBC was heartbroken today to learn the pope was Catholic.
