Full Question

Aren’t pro-life Catholics who support a particular war being hypocritical?

Answer

Because there are cases in which war can be morally justified, Catholics are permitted to disagree over whether any particular war is justifiable. There is never any case in which abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem-cell research, or human cloning is morally justifiable because they all involve the illegitimate killing of innocent human beings. No Catholic can ever support them. Thus, a pro-life Catholic who properly rejects the immoral killing of an innocent human being can at the same time believe that a particular war is justifiable based on the requirements of Catholic just war doctrine.

    “There is never any case in which abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem-cell research, or human cloning is morally justifiable because they all involve the illegitimate killing of innocent human beings.” Yes, the bible covered this in great detail in chapter… hmm. Where was it? Let’s see… Abortion was covered in Numbers 5 where Yahweh has His own recipe for it. Saul asked an Amalekite to assist in his suicide, but of course Yahweh had no clue what embryonic stem-cell research or human cloning would be about. Jesus didn’t even know what germs were and told his followers they need not wash their hands before eating. How many millions died horribly for another 1800 years, who could have lived if Jesus had just spoken a few words about germs and sanitation? He’s not to blame. He didn’t know, probably because he wasn’t a real person, but rather a mythical, celestial god brought into being as a result of the apocalyptic times, and the failed prophecies of Jeremiah that Daniel tried to fix by pointing to that particular point in time. If you have the ability to prevent the killing of innocents and fail to do so, how can you be good? In fact, if you kill innocents specifically to punish someone else, as when Yahweh killed 70,000 innocents because King Dave took a census, why should we take any moral teaching from such an unfair, unjust monster?
    .
    The problem of course isn’t the illegitimate killing of a human being, it’s that those humans go to eternal torment in Hell according to the RCC, regardless of their state of complete innocence. Who is more evil – the human who took the life before it started, or ended it when it became intolerable, or the god who would send anyone under any circumstances to eternal torment? There can be no greater evil than that. How are we to respect anyone who would worship such a being? I can understand fearing such a monstrous supreme being, but worshipping evil? No. Either the RCC has its god wrong, or their god is a monster.
