Pat Quinn Stirs Up Abortion Controversy in Illinois

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has stirred up the abortion controversy by saying "it's the proper, Christian thing to do" to present a pro-abortion rights groups award at an event in Chicago on November 17, sponsored by "Personal PAC" the same group that contributed around a half-million dollars in cash and services to Quinn's campaign.

Cardinal Francis George and Catholic bishops have been critical of Quinn's support of "the legal right to kill children in their mother's wombs"

There goes Quinn using OBAMA speak. Saying black is white and white is black. What a convoluted statement that it is the Christian thing to do. Where the hell did he get his moral outlook from.....maybe the devil. He should be publicly villified by all Christian churches and pastors for ignorant statements like these. This is how Stalin, Hitler, and the present president of IRAN speak. Quinn is a WHORE of the highest order selling himself for a pittance.

Until tax and other governmental deferences are ended, the Church needs to butt the heck out of public policy, period. Elected officials are NOT representatives of the Church, they are not elected to represent church policy, they are elected to represent people of all faiths and of no faiths. Cardinal George is a fine one to talk about morality.

Your are right in one respect that elected officials are not representatives of the church. Therefore Quinn making such a statement about what is or is not Christian, is totally wrong and ridiculous.

What's hilarious is that George has backed off his statements, when he found out that Quinn was presenting an award for courage to a woman who was the victim of a heinous rape. George blasted at Quinn w/o checking the facts, and when he found out what they were, he's now backed off.
