There are two words that do not belong in the same sentence: lesbian and priest. Just like the terms “abortionist” and “modern-day saints” do not belong together either. Unfortunately, both phrase conjunctions have landed together to create one big disaster.
Episcopal priest Katherine Ragsdale, who is also a lesbian, was deemed the new president and CEO of the National Abortion Federation (NAF).
“Today, the National Abortion Federation Board of Directors announced that The Very Reverend Katherine Hancock Ragsdale has been named President and CEO,” the organization announced on Wednesday.
Ragsdale, who went gaga over the announcement, said that abortionist are literally “modern-day saints” and “heroes.” So in other words, she thinks that murdering unborn babies is somehow heroic and commendable.
“It has been a great privilege to lead this organization for the last year and work alongside the incredible and dedicated NAF Board, staff, and membership,” she said, “Abortion providers are some of my personal heroes and modern-day saints. It is an honor to be able to serve and support NAF members as they provide compassionate health care amid increasing attacks and challenges.”
That’s something I don’t understand, because you cannot be both Christian and support the murder of babies. It does’t work that way. I also don’t get how someone can be a lesbian and also a priest. What kind of backwards shenanigans is going on here?
“In her short time at NAF, Katherine has demonstrated her unwavering commitment to serving our members and her great vision for the future of NAF, the NAF Hotline Fund, and NAF Canada,” said NAF Board Chair Sue Carlisle. “After working with her for the last year, it was clear to the Board that the best person for the job was already leading the organization.”
The press release described Ragsdale as “an Episcopal priest who has been outspoken about abortion rights, LGBTQ equality, and public policy issues affecting women and families throughout her career.”
Despite what Ragsdale (and and others from the left) may think, abortion is in no way a “right” or a “blessing.” It is murder, point-blank.
Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life and president of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, blasted Ragsdale as a “false prophet” following the NAF announcement.
“For decades, Katherine Ragsdale, a false prophet, has been trying to put religious vestments on child-killing,” Pavone said, “She led the ‘Religious Coalition for Abortion Rights’ (now the ‘Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice’), which actually provides rites of blessing for parents about to kill their children, and for the facilities in which the blood is shed.”
“Scripture studies that attempt to say exactly the opposite of what Scripture says about what God thinks of the shedding of innocent blood,” he added, “It actually reveals one of the greatest weaknesses of the abortion industry: Science is not on their side, logic is not on their side, and history is not on their side,” Pavone said of NAF’s decision on Ragsdale. “They ran out of arguments a long time ago to try to justify abortion. So now, all they have left is to disguise it in ‘spirituality.”
“They try in vain to take the stigma out of abortion — but that effort continues, and that is what this new development represents,” Pavone concluded.
