Robert Vasa, Bishop of Baker, Oregon has published a vehement essay charging that those who profess to love God, but back abortion, are “liars” who lack love for the unborn child.
His essay, published on Tuesday in the bishop’s diocesan newspaper the Catholic Sentinel, discussed Christians’ duties to the unborn while warning about the proposed Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA).
Bishop Vasa began by quoting a passage from 1 John 4:
“Beloved, we love God because He first loved us. If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ but hates his brother, he is a liar; for whoever does not love a brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. This is the commandment we have from Him: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.”
