The leader of the pro-abortion “Catholic” group “Catholics for Choice” claimed the Catholic faith is “not Bible-based” while trying to promote abortion. 

According to Life News:

Speaking with Religion News Service, Jamie L. Manson, president of Catholics for Choice, discussed the issue of whether pro-abortion Catholic politicians should be denied Communion. Her pro-abortion group uses the Catholic label, but it is not affiliated with the Catholic Church.

“Even for conservative Catholics, the sacrament is powerful and should not be reduced as some sort of weapon of political intimidation or coercion,” she said.

“Catholics are not evangelicals,” Manson continued. “We don’t take things on faith. We’re not a Bible-based religion. We are a faith that takes in multiple sources when we discern big ethical decisions.”

Manson also told the news outlet that the abortion issue is morally complex – a belief that contradicts a centuries-old teaching of the Catholic Church. Christianity teaches that every human being is valuable from conception to natural death, and abortion is a grave moral evil that destroys the life of an innocent child.

On The pro-abortion group’s Twitter page, it shared a graphic with a quote from Manson, saying, “I struggle every day to honor what is most life-giving in the Catholic tradition and to dismantle the teachings that do harm.”

The members of this group can’t really be Catholics because they don’t subscribe to a basic teaching of the Catholic faith. Just saying a person’s a Catholic doesn’t make one a Catholic.

Catholicism is under attack and it appears the route cause of the discontent lies with the wavering rhetoric from the pope. Anyone that gives into the Bidens and Pelosi’s of the world is not a devout catholic. Time for a new pope?

There is a Papal prophecy that says the 135th Pope will be the last Pope and will watch Rome burn. Can’t remember where I read it bit it scared the Devil out of me and I am not a Catholic.

So the Sacrament of Holy Communion should not be reduced “as some sort of weapon of political intimidation or coercion” yet you and all the pro choice gang do exactly that with abortion and so called “womens rights”. You and your willing accomplices in the democrat party have weaponized the murder of the innocent and we cant with right to life?
Sorry, does not square with me.
I pray you have a change of heart.

It appears obvious from her photo that she is a Lesbian. So, no surprises here….
It is time for the leaders of the real Catholic Church to stand up for the long held Catholic Doctrine. There are far too many Bishops that have defaulted on that issue.

Not Bible based? She’s an idiot. I seriously doubt she (or Pelosi) even understands what the purpose of that sacrament is.

You can just look at her and tell that she is gay. Gays and pro abortion Catholics want to change our religion to accommodate their warped point of view

Much of the Roman Catholic Church appears indeed to be based not on Scripture, but on hundreds of years of canon law digesting Scripture, sometimes wrongly so. That much is true. However, it is difficult to believe that any church approves of sacrificing human life to the bloodthirsty Moloch of abortion.

Manson your name says it all, your not a Catholic other wise you wouldn’t be saying stupid, murder is a moral sin, only God decides your destiny! Have you ever heard the words birth control, it’s free to all women, if a young person gets pregnant it was for a reason! Why should I pay for some idiots abortion and why did that idiot get pregnant in the first place?? This is the 21st century not the dark ages or 60 years ago, you can go to any drug store walk up to the pharmacist and pay for the morning after pill it’s that simple! I follow the science and it’s been proven without a doubt LIFE begins at conception. Like I said earlier your name says a lot about a person, Murder Inc tell a lot of lies for a reason, do they really help with an unplanned pregnancy the answer to that is NO it’s all about the money they steal from the tax payer! Your org need to stop calling yourselves Catholics for choice, a human life is valuable even at conception! And just so you know it’s not just Catholics or Christians who believe this, murder is murder no matter how small or where that life is inside the womb you are seeing a living human being!
