The Blatant Hypocrisy of the Catholic Church





From Slate magazine comes another example of religious hypocrisy. This time it's the Roman Catholic Church. (Who would have thought!) In this case, a Roman Catholic Church hospital chain is arguing that a seven month-old fetus is not a human life as part of its defense in a wrongful death lawsuit. This argument stands in stark contrast to the Catholic Church's staunch (and official) position that fetuses, embryos, zygotes, and even fertilized eggs are people. As with so many things, people will say one thing, but practice something completely different when it's in their self interest to do so.
