Usually I'm quite proud of the stance the Catholic Church takes on a lot of issues. But I've said before (and reiterate here) that I am a Culture of Death Catholic. The idea being that you have celebrate women who choose to have babies instead of demonizing women who choose not to if you truly want to encourage a true culture of life in this nation.
Well, at least the Diocese of Brooklyn came down about its beliefs, and in my opinion they are on the wrongest of wrong sides. Instead of celebrating the choice of one of their teachers to have a baby, and celebrating that choice as one an adult is making despite not being married (something that is quite laudable in America these days), they fired her from teaching at their school.
If you care about encouraging women to have babies instead of not having babies, you can't demonize them when they choose to have babies. Priorities, fellas. Priorities. I pray every day for more women to make such decisions, I celebrate every time a woman I know chooses to have a kid. And now y'all go and do this.
Earth to the Church: now ain't the time to start being ideologically inconsistent.
