What’s the deal with Catholic leaders from Colorado? The Colorado Independent’s Ernest Luning pointed out on Friday that Cardinal James Francis Stafford, formerly archbishop in Denver, accused President-elect Barack Obama for having an apocalyptic “anti-life agenda.” A month ago Denver’s current archbishop, Charles Chaput,called Obama the “most committed” abortion-rights candidate since Roe v. Wade. And let’s not forget Bishop Michael Sheridan of Colorado Springs, who in the past extended the no-Communion threat to voters who pulled the lever for any candidate who supports abortion rights, stem-cell research, euthanasia or gay marriage.
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."
