Archbishop blasts abortion as unspeakable crime! Clinton's due to arrive at Catholic University!

The Clinton campaign limps into Texas looking for a much needed win, instead it has run into a snag with a scheduled rally to be held at St. Mary's, a Catholic University. San Antonio Archbishop Jose H. Gomez responded to concerned Catholics who have expressed there concern over Hillary's pro choice stance.

"Our Catholic institutions must promote the clear understanding of our deep moral convictions on an issue like abortion, an act that the Church calls 'an unspeakable crime' and a non negotiable issue."

I have given some thought to issues like this! On one hand the Church is not endorsing a candidate, it is a institution of higher learning and is exposing it's students to both sides of a argument and to different views. On the other hand we are not talking about border control or social security reform we are talking about abortion. Visits like this can lead to public scandal ,even if they are not endorsed by the Church. I tend to think that Catholic Institutions need to get back to being Catholic.
