Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

American Bishops Getting Forceful About Abortion

"Any one of us here would consider it a privilege to die tomorrow--die tomorrow!--to bring about the end of abortion,"
Auxiliary Bishop Robert Hermann of St. Louis.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is meeting this week. It appears that abortion is taking a front seat in the discussions. Thank God. Before the election, over 50 bishops made it clear that voting for a pro-abortion candidate was cooperating with evil. Lord willing, if this continues and gets down to the parish level across the country, things could change. I know that among conservative Catholics, there is a lot of anger towards the USCCB because of their lack of leadership in the past regarding abortion, but I see this as a hopeful sign that things may be starting to turn around.

Personally, I am praying for a change of heart in President-elect Obama and hoping that someone influential in the pro-life community, such as the niece of MLK, can get his ear and explain how abortion is an insidious genocide of the African-American population.
How ironic that he promised Planned Parenthood to pass the Freedom of Choice Act as his first priority. The first African- American to be president promises an organization founded by a white supremacist (Martha Sanger) that he would do everything in his power to remove any restrictions on abortion to the end that even more African- Americans will be denied their rights, most importantly the right to life.

Obama is a politician before he is a black man. That is why he can support the genocide of his own race.
