“Molochite Catholics”

From California Catholic Daily:
Eighty percent of California Catholics in the U.S. House defied the Church by voting in favor of the sacrifice of children for embryonic stem cell research

To be fair, it's possible that some of these professed Catholics are ignorant when it comes to Church teaching. This ignorance might be due to failed catechesis, timid bishops and priests, or Catholics of the constituency who may not admonish their politicians.

In ancient times, pagans and idolatrous Israelites offered human sacrifices by throwing babies and young children into fires as holocaust offerings to the false god Moloch. In A.D. 2007, neo-pagan and idolatrous “Molochite Catholics” are determined to offer young children -- individual human beings in the embryonic stage of their lives -- as sacrifices to the possibility that cannibalizing their stem cells will provide cures for other human beings.

On June 7, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 247-176 to pass Senate Bill 5, sponsored by Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, allowing human embryonic stem cell research. California’s congressional delegation, the nation’s largest, voted 41-11 to pass the bill. Sixteen of the 41 identify themselves as “Catholic” -- 15 Democrats and one Republican.
