But aren't all of us 'forced' to pay for state executions? I don't see any voluntary collections taken up to pay the hangman--but there is usually a Catholic witness outside the prisons where they are carried out in their name, as well as in the name of us all.
This is silly. Catholic teaching opposes the death penalty as well. But our taxes support executions. It's also opposed our last several wars as unjust. If you don't want an abortion don't have one. Likewise with contraceptives. Meanwhile, let's keep abortion legal, safe and rare. My father, one of the most faithful of the faithful, will have no problem attending mass this week or any other. And our Founders removed religious tests for public office in our Constitution for very good reasons.
