Cardinal Sandoval: promoters of abortion are “children of darkness”

.- The archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, said he would continue to call those who promote the crime of abortion “children of darkness,” and that if members of the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) felt he was referring to them, it was their problem, since he said he was speaking as he was supposed to as a bishop.

“I called those who promote abortion children of darkness and I will continue to do so because abortion is murder, it is a crime and it is homicide.  The Gospel of St. John says it is the devil, who is the prince of darkness, and those who promote homicide are children of darkness,” the cardinal said.

Likewise, he said he has not been contacted by the government to respond the lawsuit filed against him by members of the PRD in Jalisco over his comments on abortion.  He called the lawsuit a tactic to divert attention away from the issue.  “I don’t respond to gossip,” the cardinal said.  “A bishop can’t say anything different than what I said,” he added.
