Things Jesus Never Said May 18
I’m personally opposed to abortion, but I don’t let my religion interfere with my politics.

My disciples, you’ll notice I haven’t said anything about Abortion. That's because I don't have a problem with it. I also didn’t say anything about rape, incest, war, monopoly, pollution, and hitting yourself on the head with a tack hammer — which are all totally fine as well.

What is Abortion? Do you think it’s the taking of innocent human life or don’t you? If you do, then translate it: How can we talk about a rational foreign policy or the horrors of nuclear war if we hold the position that you can take innocent human life? —Arch. John O'Connor

I simply don’t see the rationale in saying that a politician is for better housing, a lower rate of unemployment, a more rational foreign policy—and the only thing wrong is that he supports abortion, so it’s okay to vote for him. —Arch. John O'Connor

I think that if they gave me leave Within the world to stand, I would be good through all the day I spent in fairyland. They should not hear a word from me Of selfishness or scorn, If only I could find the door, If only I were born.

Let storm clouds come: better an hour, And leave to weep and fight, Than all the ages I have ruled The empires of the night.

If a fixed fire hung in the air To warm me one day through, If deep green hair grew on great hills, I know what I should do. In dark I lie; dreaming that there Are great eyes cold or kind, And twisted streets and silent doors, And living men behind.

We are facing an enormous and dramatic clash between good and evil, death and life, the "culture of death" and the "culture of life"....We are all involved and we all share in it, with the inescapable responsibility of choosing to be unconditionally pro-life. —John Paul II, 1995

Abortion is the Antichrist's demonic parody of the Eucharist. That's why it uses the same holy words, "This is my body," with the blasphemously opposite meaning. —Peter Kreeft

What is wrong with our civilization can be said with one word — unreality. We are in no danger either from the vices or the virtues of vikings; we are in danger of forgetting all facts, good and bad, in a haze of high-minded phraseology.

Men are never more awake to the good in the world than when they are furiously awake to the evil in the world.

The Abortion controversy is the most vital and relevant of all. For we can survive energy crises, inflation, wars, revolutions and insurrections..but if we transgress against the very basis of our mortal existence...then we shall surely and deservedly perish from the earth.
