An excellent summary of what is going on in London…
“…It is scandalous that the Canadian bishops, in particular the bishop of London, Ronald Fabbro, have done nothing to stop this. Bishop Fabbro launched an investigation in March, eight months ago, but nothing has happened. The fact that he launched this investigation after pro-lifers started raising a stink tells me two things: 1) there is likely something wrong about these practices; 2) pro-lifers can make a difference when they take action against injustice.
Actually, Steve, I think that the Vatican has already responded. I just think the ecclesiastical authorties haven’t released the answer because it will overturn the applecart, and lots of humble pie will have to be eaten.
We know what the answer is going to be. Catholic Morality 101 already tells us. And it’s not going to change.
My suspicion is that we will never get an official answer from the Diocese of London. They’re just hoping the whole thing blows over. But it’s not going to blow over. The blogosphere is not going to let this go until St. Joseph’s either conforms to Catholic morality or stops pretending to be a Catholic hospital.
It’s time to get on with it or get off the pot.
