Catholic Action Group responds to pro-abortion lobby group

.- The orthodox, independent Catholic Action Group (CAG) has denounced a recent report by the pro-abortion Catholics for Free Choice that inaccurately represents CAG’s three spokespersons. The report also labeled the CAG as conservative and right wing. “If our message appears extreme, it is because modernist Catholics have become de-sensitized from the truths our Church has always taught,” the CAG said in a written statement.

“Whilst CAG is pro-life, apart from this, it is not politically or party motivated,” said CAG secretary Robert Williams. “A conservative or right wing label, only valid for politics is therefore inappropriate. We totally reject such labeling...we are simply orthodox.”

Williams questioned why the group has not been disciplined by the bishops if they are truly so out of line with the Catholic mainstream.

Recently, the CAG has campaigned against Joint Religious Education schools, issued a UK Voters Guide for Catholics and has promoted Catholic boycotts of CAFOD for its controversial HIV/AIDS-ABC policy and Comic Relief for its funding of pro-abortion organizations.
