…one arrest at a time:
Layton is a pro-abortion extremist. As a Toronto City Councillor he used to stand outside abortion facilities and encourage the police to arrest peaceful pro-life protesters. (Source)
Back in 1996, a group of faithful Catholics were peacefully protesting a lecture by noted dissenter and defrocked theologian Gregory Baum at Toronto University’s Catholic Newman Centre. Much to the astonishment and annoyance of Father Rosica, Newman’s director at the time, “a group of two dozen protesters appeared, handing out flyers which documented how Professor Baum, an excommunicated priest, had done the Church much harm in the past. Their point: he should never have been invited to speak at a Catholic institution. “That’s pure madness in those flyers,” Toronto’s Catholic Register (May 27) reported Fr. Rosica as saying. The director [Fr. Rosica] called the police, ostensibly to “restrain” the picketers, but when the former showed up in strength in response to the alarm call they found the protesters perfectly peaceful and left them to their business“ (Source). Gregory Baum, the subject of the protest, was one of the leading dissenters of Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI’s encyclical condemning contraceptive acts. Baum was a catalyst in the adoption of the disastrous Winnipeg Statement.
But wait! There’s more! Jack displayed such love and compassion for everyone, even those he disagreed with:
“I always found him to be a kind gentleman in his dealings with others,” Rosica said. “He listened attentively to others, especially those who had differing opinions, and showed much respect for people.” (Source)
Yes! That’s right, Father, like encouraging the arrest of peaceful protesters who “had differing opinions” and voting down Bill C-484, the unborn victims of crime bill.
We can all just feel Jack’s “love”, can’t we? His particular “love” came on the end of an abortionist’s knife.
Fr. Rosica is always looking for the good in King Herod. He’ll give a glowing tribute to just about anyone who matters, no matter what heinous thing they advocated. “Must. preserve. the. club’s. image. at. all. costs…Jim.”
For Fr. Rosica, it’s cudos all around for people who “count” – except for genuine leaders of the pro-life movement. For them, they’re just full of “division, destruction, hatred, vitriol, judgment and violence…destroying and killing others“.
