Matt C. Abbot - Pro-War Catholic 

Isn't it strange how many people consider themselves pro-life, while also being pro-war?

Here's a quote from Matt C. Abbott, a 'columnist' for something called Renew America, which appears to be a group using the Founding Fathers to justify their pro-Alan Keyes positions.

In what is made to look like a news story, Mr. Abbott editorializes about two peace loving nuns:

On the surface, it looks fine. But these nuns are notoriously left-wing, believing, among other things, that legalized abortion is "crucial," though they are supposedly "troubled" by abortion itself.

Apparently, the nuns are somehow evil people for believing, as most Americans and The Law of The Land do, that abortions should be legal, but rare.

That might make a person believe Matt C. Abbot is a peaceful person, who holds like in high regard. Well, that just doesn't jive with his mocking of the nun's respect for life beyond the womb:

"Oh, yes, lest I forget, I should mention the good sisters are very much against war. Imagine that!"

Interestingly, the number of abortions in the United States has increased during George W. Bush's presidency, which is something Mr. Abbot and the nuns he mocks and scolds would both likely agree is a failure by this administration. This is largely due to the higher levels of unemployment and lower levels of health insured, both of which correlate with the number of abortions done.

If Mr. Abbot spent less time acting like a war monger, and more time lobbying for more peaceful solutions to our country's diplomatic issues, more of our country's resources could insure and employ women he wants to control.
