  • I thought I heard she was Novus Ordo Charismatic.  I know... probably not much of a difference.
    Anyone know anything about the Kavanagh possibility?  Is he at least a conservative Novus Ordo Catholic (aka anti Roe v Wade)?
    "In May 2006, Kavanaugh stated he "would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully" and that the issue of the legality of abortion has already "been decided by the Supreme Court."[22] During the hearing, he stated that a right to an abortion has been found "many times", citing Planned Parenthood v. Casey.[22]
    -from Wikipedia
    If the potential to overturn Roe v. Wade is there and we don't take advantage of it, then valuable time has been wasted. 
    There is a God, but there probably is no Pope Francis.

    So Trump really has no desire to overturn Roe v Wade. 
    If any one saith, that the ceremonies, vestments, and outward signs, which the Catholic Church makes use of in the celebration of masses, are incentives to impiety, rather than offices of piety; let him be anathema. - Council of Trent

  • Brett Kavanaugh served in the neoconservative administration of George W. Bush and has stated in the past that he "would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully". On the face of things, he does not seem like a great supreme court nominee. I can only hope and pray that he has a change of heart.

    Well, in my opinion, this was the poorest choice... but now, the "Catholic mother of 7" may now consider her FIRST duties before God to be a wife and mother as God has called her to be. How could any Catholic in their right mind root for a "Catholic" mother to be sentenced to a life term playing in a role reserved for men in regards to interpreting and defining laws for the governance of a society.

    Trump is waiting for the next retirement, which is (probably) happening eventually. Ginsburg is hesitant to retire under a Republican president.

  • The correct legal action would be to not overturn Roe v Wade, but to have the Supreme Court decide it's a state's rights issue.  The Feds have no business deciding moral, social issues.  I think the Supreme Court could make this decision and think it's taking the 'middle road' between the "extreme" (as the liberals would call it) complete ban of abortion.  From a purely practical standpoint, you can't just outright ban abortion from one day to the next - there would be chaos, rioting and destruction.  Better for the Supreme Court to "punt" the issue to the states, where it belongs, and let citizens decide at the state level.  If that happened, then you'd have over 50% of the states would ban it immediately.  25% would ban it soon thereafter and the last 25% would be in for a close fight.

    Then maybe Congress would see that 'right to life' is the 'will of the people' and they would pass a "life begins at conception" law, which then, the Supreme Court would uphold.  Game, set, match.

    You just reminded me of something I heard on the Rush Limbaugh show on July 5th, here's an exerpt from the transcript from the show...


    Quote
    Even if Roe v. Wade is overturned, abortion does not automatically become illegal. States immediately are gonna pass laws to make it — All of this, that’s the straw dog. And so is this silly polling data, two-thirds the American people don’t want it overturned? I don’t buy that at all. Not for a minute.
    BREAK TRANSCRIPT
    RUSH: Of course, there is one thing that could totally turn abortion law upside down. You know what it is? If the baby in the womb is ever decided to have civil rights. If some judge or if some court comes along and agrees with the premise that a fetus in the womb at certain stage has civil rights, and don’t think that there aren’t people thinking about taking it in that direction should things eventuate.
    You’ve got some really committed people on this on the life side. And, by the way, the left knows all of that. The reason they are so panicked over this is they know Roe v. Wade is bad law. They know that it’s not really constitutional. Without some misguided leftist majority, it won’t survive a challenge. It’s not good law.
    I mean, we should get into this at some point. The way it happened — it could be about any subject, abortion, anything else — it’s bad law. And it became bad law because of political preferences. The left knows all that. They know how precariously balanced this is. So that’s why the full-fledged abject panic.

    I am a Catholic and have been active in pro-life since 1971. Sadly, the world we wish we live in is not the world we actually do live in. She was the most pro-life candidate on the short list.
