Mark Shea of the Day

Or, why it's a bad bad bad idea for laws to be different for bad Catholics than bad everyone else.

From my point of view, the first issue is the 14th Amendment. I really don't see why a part of the Constitution that provides for "equal protection" mandates abortion but doesn't mean that a statue of limitations law can be applied differently to those of different faiths or in different jobs. I suppose the Columbia education makes me focus too much on what the text says and not enough on the "spirit" of the law. I have the same problem with Vatican II sometimes, especially when I try to quote the Council's documents to someone.
