This editorial cartoon appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer in the wake of the Supreme Court decision upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.
I agree with Chuck Colson who, in today's Townhall.com column, appropriately blasted the Inquirer's cartoonist Tony Auth for his recent editorial:
The cartoon’s message was clear: The Catholics had voted, not to uphold the law, but to impose their personal religious views. It’s a graphic example of anti-Catholic bigotry.In a letter to the editor, Donna Farrell of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia wrote:
This is a human issue, not a Catholic one. To label it Catholic in such a prejudicial fashion unfairly dismisses all those of other religions who stand together against abortion. I cannot imagine the media would make an issue of the justices' religion were it anything other than Catholic.She's right on target.
