Abby Johnson, who had two abortions herself and who assisted in the abortions of 22,000 other women, has the incredible temerity to use her rock stardom with the MAGA “prolife” cult to demand punishment for murder be meted out to post-abortive women:
Note that she is shouting down, not somebody calling for “abortion on demand without apology” but (as is absolutely typical for the MAGA Cult of Death) advocates of a Consistent Ethic of Life who seek to care for mothers as well as the unborn. She serves an antichrist gospel of hypocritical pitilessness, not Christ, with junk like this.
A suggested reading for Ms. Johnson:
“Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants. When he began the reckoning, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents; and as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and payment to be made. So the servant fell on his knees, imploring him, ‘Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.’ And out of pity for him the lord of that servant released him and forgave him the debt. But that same servant, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat he said, ‘Pay what you owe.’ So his fellow servant fell down and pleaded with him, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you.’ He refused and went and put him in prison till he should pay the debt. When his fellow servants saw what had taken place, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place. Then his lord summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me; and should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?’ And in anger his lord delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all his debt. So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.” (Mt 18:23–35)
The more celebrity converts are instantly hoisted aloft as gurus by Catholics, the more I think it would be great if the Church imposed a ten year moratorium on waving the scalps of famous converts as trophies. Even Paul had to shut up and go spend a decade learning what he was talking about before he began his apostolic work, and he only did that because the Church at Antioch sent him, not because he opened a Twitter account and started blabbing about the need to stone more people to death.
I’ve had enough of celebrity Catholics. After Corapi and Pavone and Coffin and Arroyo and especially McCorvey, I just assume that I’ll eventually find out that anyone in the Church who gets lifted up onto a pedestal is going to turn out to be a rapist or a fascist or at least some kind of charlatan. Even people I think are reasonable and decent, like Jimmy Akin and Steven Greydanus, I keep at arms length because, even if they don’t turn out to be the next Catholic Bill Cosby or whatever, that kind of hero worship is just not healthy.
As a wise man once didn’t quite say: I mean that each of you is saying, “I belong to Pavone,” or “I belong to Coffin,” or “I belong to Akin,” or “I belong to Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Pavone crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Coffin?
From unreasonable to temerity to this defamation: “She serves an antichrist gospel of hypocritical pitilessness, not Christ, with junk like this.“. Your lack of good measure in you words are nonsense.
Congratulations. In addition to calling for the draconian punishment of post-abortive women, your evil cult succeeded in raising abortion rates by 8% during 2017-2020, reversing a 30 year trend in your stupid, evil, lying, traitorous support for a grifting con man. You have been so wrong about so much so many times for so long that only an absolute fool would trust your judgment (or respect your condemnations) about anything in the whole wide world. It goes without saying that the murderous hypocrite John was part of the Insurrectionist mob on 1/6/21.
I could not care less what people like you think. Your whole evil cult is a catastrophe.
