In a comment to a previous post titled CONVOCAR'S MASS FOR HEROD, Anonymous writes:

You ‘Catholics’ would rather women die than receive necessary medical care when a pregnancy threatens their lives or isn’t viable. I hope you all get what you deserve. That being the opportunity to witness someone you know suffer this fate. Mind you, I’m not wishing women ill; I just want you to see it with your own eyes when the inevitable happens. 

It's an important point so I thought I'd give Anonymous his/her own post with my reply. 

I would first say "Who you callin' Catholic?" 

1. The post on which Anonymous comments addresses the fact that our now twice-elected Catholic governor, the most public proponent of abortion in Guam's history, continues to receive Holy Communion without consequence, and even - as per the subject post - from the hands of Guam's current Apostolic Administrator, who is functionally our bishop. 

2. I would also remind Anonymous that the most viciously pro-abortion president in U.S. History, a regular Mass-going Catholic, is currently in the White House. 

3. Likewise, I would also remind Anonymous that the most ardent defenders of abortion in Congress have been Catholics: Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, and many more. 

4. In fact, 2024 presidential candidate, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., a member of America's most prominent Catholic family, just declared his support for abortion. 

5. Moving on to U.S. Catholics at large, according to a 2022 Pew Research poll, only 10% of all U.S. Catholics believe abortion should be illegal in all cases. That's about even with the rest of the U.S. which is at 8%. So, functionally, 90% of Catholics believe abortion should be legal to one degree or another.

6. More specifically to Anonymous' comment, only 13% of U.S. Catholics believe abortion should be illegal when the mother's life and health are threatened. This is also on par with the rest of the nation which is 11%. 

So "Who you callin' Catholic?"

On a personal note, and to Anonymous saying "I just want you to see it with your own eyes when the inevitable happens." I have seen it with my own eyes. Four times.  

And a P.S. 

Pope Francis just ordered a "visitation" (a modern form of the word "inquisition") of Bishop Strickland of Tyler, Texas. Strickland's "sin" appears to be his defense of traditional Catholic morality and teaching and especially his calling out of Catholic pro-abort politicians. He's been vocal for awhile, but what appears to have triggered Francis was Strickland showing up to march with Catholics in Los Angeles at the recent Dodger "Pride Night" which honored a Catholic hate group. So rest assured Anonymous, there's nothing to worry about from "Catholics," not even the pope.
