Former Denver archbishop: ‘Catholics weep over Barack Obama,’ abortion

Roman Catholic Cardinal James Francis Stafford, who was Denver's archbishop until being tapped for a Vatican position in 1996, warned a university audience President-elect Barack Obama's "anti-life agenda" on abortion is "aggressive, disruptive and apocalyptic," in an address reported Thursday by the Catholic News Agency. Stafford told students at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., that the next few years will be "among the most divisive in our nation's history" because Americans were distracted by the prospect of electing an African-American president from Obama's "deadly vision of human life."
