Catholic Bishop Condemns Abortion: It is A Pagan Sacrifice Of Innocent Children

Micaiah Bilger

The pagan sacrifice of innocent children to false gods is still happening in society, though it goes by another name, Catholic Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone told pro-lifers Jan. 22 during a special pro-life Mass.

Cordileone, the archbishop of San Francisco, warned about the spread of paganism in society and its belief that killing unborn babies in abortions is a blessed sacrament, according to his homily published Monday in The National Catholic Register.

He gave the message ahead of the Walk for Life in San Francisco, an annual event held to mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Since the ruling in 1973, more than 63.5 million unborn babies have been killed in abortions.

This is all around us nowadays, and this kind of secularism has all the marks of a religion: infallible dogmas, rituals, saints, creedal statements and condemnation of heretical teachings along with punishment of the heretics who hold them and dare to speak them in public, index of forbidden books, even sacraments, Cordileone said.
