The homily, which was given by Archbishop Javier Martinez of Granada on December 20, 2009, has only recently attracted the attention of pro-abortion blogs, despite having been posted on YouTube as early as October 2010.
The words of the bishop, which ringingly denounce the legalization of abortion and the resulting abuse of women, have been inverted by bloggers who claim that the bishop is endorsing, rather than lamenting, such abuse.
“To kill a defenseless child, and that his own mother does it!” said the bishop, adding, “This gives men the absolute license, without limit, to abuse the body of the woman, because she endures the tragedy, and she endures it as if it were a right: the right to live all of her life weighed down by a crime that always leaves traces in the conscience and for which doctors, not psychiatrists nor all of the specialists, know a remedy.”
Archbishop Javier Martinez of Granada. Remember that name. This blog campaign may backfire and lead to bigger and better things for him.
