  •  No, This Proves the Church Is Hypocritical (1+ / 0-)

    There was an argument that the defense of a lawyer for the insurance corp retained by a local church is not the policy of the Church and the pope. It was a bad argument, because a consistent church would drop that insurer if it was such a sinner as to insist fetuses aren't people. And now that the church is showing it has power over that lawyer's defense, at least in dropping the insurer if the church decides the defense disagrees with its policy on murdering babies, it's proven that the church does indeed have that power.

    But it had that power all along. All that changed was the amount of attention. Hypocrites aren't cured by changing their tune only when caught.

    So now the church proves it's hypocritical, and probably has to pay for harming that woman. Her fetuses weren't people, but the church owes her bigtime.

    That's a tiny step closer to the church making it up to the many millions of women it's irreparably harmed by insisting fetuses are people. If only so many of them weren't dead now - where the church has absolutely no power to affect them.
