Catholic Church criticizes pro-abortion campaign for using Bible quotes

.- The spokesman for the Archdiocese of Mexico City, Father Hugo Valdemar, criticized a campaign recently launched by “Catholics for Choice” for using quotes from the Bible out of context to justify the use of condoms.

The ad campaign launched by CFC in Mexico uses passages from the Song of Songs that have sexual connotations with the phrase, “Love neighbor as yourself. Use a condom.” below each Bible quote.

“It’s clear to us that the members of this group are not Catholic, as they are going against the teachings of the Pope and the Church,” Father Valdemar told the EFE news agency.

He called the use of the Bible passages “offensive” and noted, “In the Bible there is nothing about condoms.”  “They are anxious for the Church to attack them in response, but precisely because of this, there will be no response on the part of the Archdiocese,” he said.

Father Valdemar recalled that the U.S. Bishops have clearly indicated that CFC is not a Catholic organization.  “These are organizations that by their own choice are automatically excluded from the Church,” he said.

He also pointed out that CFC is financed by pro-abortion organizations and that it’s sole intention is to “attack the Church.”
