Irony, The Catholic Way.

They can call, but I call BS:

What can we do? Perhaps someday the Supreme Court will allow broader restrictions on gun ownership and use, but for now the court is stymied by the anachronistic worldview of the Second Amendment.

Hilarious idea, specially when it comes from an organization that is supposed to follow the teachings and mandates of that anachronistic book called The Bible. But America (magazine) is one of those “orders” from the Liberation Theology who had no problem with Che Guevara or Child Perverts or any of the many Liberal causes that have nothing to do with being a good catholic.

And By The Way: These are from the Catechism of the Catholic Church regarding Self-Defense:

The legitimate defense of persons and societies is not an exception to the prohibition against the murder of the innocent that constitutes intentional killing. “The act of self-defense can have a double effect: the preservation of one’s own life; and the killing of the aggressor. . . . The one is intended, the other is not.

Love toward oneself remains a fundamental principle of morality. Therefore it is legitimate to insist on respect for one’s own right to life. Someone who defends his life is not guilty of murder even if he is forced to deal his aggressor a lethal blow:

If a man in self-defense uses more than necessary violence, it will be unlawful: whereas if he repels force with moderation, his defense will be lawful. . . . Nor is it necessary for salvation that a man omit the act of moderate self-defense to avoid killing the other man, since one is bound to take more care of one’s own life than of another’s.

Legitimate defense can be not only a right but a grave duty for one who is responsible for the lives of others. The defense of the common good requires that an unjust aggressor be rendered unable to cause harm. For this reason, those who legitimately hold authority also have the right to use arms to repel aggressors against the civil community entrusted to their responsibility.

Now that we have that out-of-the-way, can these people get back to call the bingo game?

UPDATE: David of Musings Over A Pint had already covered this subject from an earlier fumble from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

  1. I bet ya those Christians getting murdered by obama`s “Religion of Peace” buddies would have liked to have been able to defend themselves with some bad old guns…… 🙁

  2. Too many Christians these days view the Bible through the filter of their politics, rather than their beliefs through the filter of their Bible.

  3. Too Too many folks ignore the Bibles comments – Christ said ( on the night he died ) sell you cloak and buy a sword!( The pistol of the day = gladius – easily concealed under a long robe!) The Disciples said the had here two ( 2 ) – Christ said “It is enought”.
    Also old testament – strike down an intruder in the dark and no = no crime.

  4. Here in VA our local gun control summit had the leader claim the they are doing God’s work in trying to leave the lambs defenseless. Although I have always been of the opinion that it is a psychological reaction to her daughter being wounded at VT and not being there to protect the snowflake from harm. So instead of helping to protect others from harm the reaction is to leave all open to the violence of the insane. How they come to think that God wants them to die at the hand of evil does not fit the catholic religion, it has to be a rationalized idea.
