    Kentucky bad

    Maybe there's more to this story than is listed here. It's hard to imagine Kentucky's attitude if they really take the evil of killing babies seriously.

    The last time I drove though Louisville they still had rent-by-the-hour motels on the outskirts of town. Perhaps it's just a matter of a poor state with poor Catholic leadership.

    Perhaps it's just some kind of mistake.

    Perhaps the Bishop's out of the country on vacation, and the lay committees are running things.


    The Archdiocese of Louisville, Kentucky has no objection to the appearance of pro-abortion Rep. John Yarmuth as commencement speaker at a local Catholic university. Yarmuth will give the address and receive an honorary doctorate from Spalding University, a nominally Catholic school, despite his position as a board member of Planned Parenthood.

    Archdiocesan spokesman Cecelia Price was quoted by the Courier Journal saying that the archdiocese had no difficulty with Yarmuth’s appearance and that it was the “right” of the university to invite him. “We understand that it is not unusual for universities to invite sitting members of Congress to participate in graduation ceremonies,” she said. “And we accept Spalding’s right to do so.”

    A spokesman for Kentucky Right to Life Association told that as a Congressman, Yarmuth, who is not Catholic, has participated in three votes on life issues and voted each time against the pro-life position.

    He told local TV station in May 2006, “I am a member of the board of Planned Parenthood, an organization which makes sure that children who are wanted are born, and those that aren’t, aren’t.”

    Cecelia, you're breaking my heart; you're shaking my confidence daily. I'm begging you please to come home.
