Pro-Abortion Catholic Politicians

His name was Pierre Trudeau. In some ways he was a bit like the Ted Kennedy of Canada.

Very sad. And very sad to read the autobiography of his bipolar wife, Margaret. He sought to change traditional Western Ethic. Brings to mind this Lord Acton quote, "Political atheism: end justifies the means. This is still the most widespread of all the opinions inimical to liberty."

In his march to power he largely fought on the issue of public morality and used anti-Catholic slogans such as: sin is not a crime; the government has no place in the bedrooms of the nation; private morality is not public morality; this is a pluralistic society; etc.

"These are the days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed except his own." -Chesterton

  1. "End justifies the means"? Isn't that Machiavelli's advice? I knew it! ALL liberal politicians memorized The Prince by heart.
