I am delighted by the tone and rigor of this charitable yet firm statement on the immorality of the actions of the Obama Administration.


What should science trump?

By Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted | March 10, 2009 | The Catholic Sun

On Monday, March 9, President Obama signed an executive order that provides federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. This means that American taxpayers will now be paying for the killing of human beings at a very early stage in their lives (as embryos), so that scientific research can make use of them for experiments that may or may not yield positive results.

Bishop Olmsted’s article in full is at: http://www.catholicsun.org/bishop/031909bishop.html

This good shepherd tells us a specific 5 step action plan for what each of us should do in the face of this gravely immoral action.  Each of us should do what he notes here:

Second, we Catholics must join with others of good will and make our voices heard across our land, at the White House, on Capitol Hill, in our state Legislatures and in the media.

I am especially encouraged by words in Bishop Olmstead’s closing:

Fifth, we must not lose hope. …  Such counterfeit reasoning and slick cover-up of the truth will not have the last word.
