This is more than an issue...

"This is more than an issue, it is the sacredness of life that is at the heart of the gospel...To suggest that the truths of our faith should be determined with an eye on the collection plate is absurdly sad and borders on the blasphemous. To save just one child from such a fate as abortion is worth even parish bankruptcy. No one can serve God and money."
~ Fr. George H. Parker explaining his refusal of pro-abortion U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd's $5000 donation to St. Joseph Catholic School in 1995 (This Rock, January 1997, p. 10) ~
