Albright And Georgetown University

Madeleine Albright
Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State and now a Georgetown University professor (!!), speaks today at Georgetown University’s Master of Science in Foreign Service award ceremony. Albright publicly attacked President George W. Bush for refusing to use taxpayer dollars to fund pro-abortion counseling overseas during NARAL Pro-Choice America’s “Power of Choice” fundraising luncheon in 2001 and again in 2005. She was a featured speaker at the 2004 “March for Women’s Rights” in Washington, D.C., which rallied support for legalized abortion. And in her 2007 book The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God and World Affairs—just in case we didn’t know it already—she confirms, “I am a supporter of Roe v. Wade because I think women should have the right to choose….”

Fatal to the Faith and to Eternal Life
by Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.

"The people of the pagan Roman Empire into which they were born universally practiced:




Cohabitation of one man with either several legal wives, or with a plurality of concubines.

In contrast with this moral promiscuity, Christians practiced monogamy, one man with one woman; they did not use drugs to prevent conception; they did not kill the newborn children whom they did not want to live; they did not practice sodomy or prostitution; and for the Christian, adultery and fornication were grave sins that might require several years of penitential expiation...

What have been the consequences of this return to prechristian paganism which is now "the law of the land" in once Christian nations like the United States? The consequences are inevitable.

The once solitary defender of the sanctity of marital relations is now on trial for the profession of its Catholic faith. In 1968, when Pope Paul VI published Humanae Vitae, the episcopal conferences of one country after another met in solemn session to pass judgment on the teachings of the Vicar of Christ.

Bishops in what we call the "Third World Countries" stood firmly behind the Pope's teaching. But the bishops of so-called developed countries, like the United States, or Canada, or France, or Germany, or Austria, or Scandinavia issued long documents that, to put it mildly, compromised the teachings of the Vicar of Christ.

What followed was as inevitable as night follows day. Once firmly believing Catholics became confused, or bewildered, or simply uncertain about the grave moral evil of contraception.

The spectacle of broken families, broken homes, divorce and annulments, abortion and the mania of homosexuality – all of this has its roots in the acceptance of contraception on a wide scale in what only two generations ago was a professed Catholic population".

allowing madelene albright to speak in a Jesuit institution puts the Society in the bad light. I hope the superiors of this community will be more sensetive to being "catholic" especially in choosing their speakers.
