In the runup to the Catholic Church’s October meeting on marriage and family, the head of the Italian bishops’ conference has found himself sufficiently filled with the Paschal spirit to resurrect an old dichotomy

“I don’t identify with the expressionless person who stands outside the abortion clinic reciting their rosary, but with young people, who are still against this practice, but are instead fighting for quality of life, their health, their right to work,” said Bishop Nunzio Galantino, age sixty-five.

So being pro-life is counter to being young and joyful?

I guess that means the bishop didn’t attend the March for Life in Washington D.C.:

Does the good bishop know any young people? If he did, he might not think that health is at odds with life, the right to work with the right to be born. Oh, and by the way: There are lots of people who are older and  less fashionable who protest abortion.


Exactly what is wrong with that?
