Why Catholics Can't Aid Birth Control Or Family Planning [View all]

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Violet_Crumble (a host of the General Discussion forum).

The stance of the Catholic Church is a Catholic cannot provide or cooperate in the dissemination or use of any birth control or family planning because they are "materially cooperating" in another's sin. According a a Cardinal Burke this material cooperation is also a sin for a Catholic if they provide the service. Even if the person requesting such services is a non believer a Catholic still has to refuse the service as a matter faith.

In cases where there is abortion even a Catholic can be thrown out of their church. Based on that logic even if you are a public servant you have to refuse to provide a public service the Church forbids. The evangelical fuindamentalists also support this position.

The above reasoning is why the Catholic Church will most likely tell its congregations that they cannot vote for any politician who is pro choice and supports family planning. Voting for a Democrat is a sin and when they confess they have to promise not to vote for a Democrat again.

Sooooooooo I guess we all will have to convert to Catholicism. The local bishops are now in charge of the US.

I guess the government will have to set its policy based on the authority from Rome.

How ironic they will raise Holy H over this matter, but there is not a peep when businesses steal peoples wages and screw them out of their retirements. And they claim immunity when it comes to child abuse.
