Manchester, New Hampshire - Was it a sign from above?Those remarks by Bishop Tobin can be read here.
Lightning zapped remarks by Republican presidential contender and former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani during a debate Tuesday night, just as he began defending his pro-choice stand on abortion rights against criticism by a Roman Catholic bishop.
'I guess I'm here by myself,' Giuliani quipped after a loud buzz momentarily interrupted the sound system. He turned around, then looked skyward as the audience broke out laughing.It should be frightening - at least, for one who professes to be Catholic...
'For someone who went to parochial schools all his life, this is a very frightening thing that's happening right now,' he said.
As Bishop Tobin says:
Rudy’s public proclamations on abortion are pathetic and confusing. Even worse, they’re hypocritical.As a matter of fact, Rudy's position is indefensible - for him to claim otherwise, demonstrates just how shallow his integrity really is. In essense, he lacks the qualities necessary to be a leader of a free and just society.
