If Bishop Thomas Tobin planned on spending his day at a hospital, soup kitchen or homeless shelter, pro-abortion “Catholics” have other plans for him.
At ten o’clock Wednesday morning, a group of Catholics will converge on the office of Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin to demand an apology for comments he made about the late Nelson Mandela.
Nelson Mandela had been dead only two days when Bishop Thomas Tobin made a statement that has drawn criticism. He said that while Mandela did much to improve the lives of South Africans his legalization of abortion was, quote, “shameful.”
An online group called “Faithful America” will present Tobin with 19-thousand signatures demanding that he apologize for the remarks. The petition says, quote, “Bishop Tobin, your shameful and mean-spirited attack on Nelson Mandela is an embarrassment to the church.”
Don’t you just love that? Bishop Tobin is “shameful and mean-spirited” to refer to the promotion of abortion as “shameful?” Have any of these people seen an abortion??? (Here’s The Blood.)
Get a load of this next part.
It calls on Tobin to apologize and reflect on Pope Francis’s recent warning about the church becoming too obsessed with abortion and gay marriage.
Isn’t the activity of these pro-abortion zealots a bit obsessive?
This Advent, as in every other, the Catholic faithful await the Birth of our Blessed Lord in the most humble of circumstances. Conceived of the Holy Spirit, He was sought by Herod so that He might be put to death, Herod being fearful that this Child might usurp him from his throne.
I think it is shameful that there are 19-000 “Catholics” willing to sign a document demanding that Bishop Tobin apologize for saying that the murder of innocents is “shameful.” What sort of throne are they trying to protect from being usurped by a child?
Pray for Bishop Tobin and for these wayward sheep.
