Here is what is vexing about Pope Francis: his emphasis.
In his address to Congress, he made passing reference to human abortion and then quickly segued into the death penalty, on which he dwelled.
And yet 410 people were executed in the U.S. in the past decade compared to 10 million American deaths via human abortion.
410 vs. 10,000,000.
Like Pope Francis, I happen to oppose the death penalty. But in the scheme of things, it seems like a small issue compared to a huge issue such as human abortion.
Could you imagine the outcry from liberals if we executed murderers and cut up their body parts and sold them to the highest bidder?
As a Catholic who loves his Church, I obediently follow my Pope even when vexed.
