UnNews:Roman Catholic Church changes name to "We Hate Abortion"
3 May 2009
LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION CITY -- Pope Benedict XVI Sunday announced that the Roman Catholic Church would henceforth and forever be known as "We Hate Abortion" in what he described as a "more accurate depiction of our priorities."
"Brothers and sisters in the Lord, the time has come to live the message of our savior Jesus Christ to the fullest," Benedict told a cheering throng in the former Vatican City. "And the only message Jesus had was to stop abortion."
The pope indicated the name change would be permanent, regardless of changes in abortion laws.
The move reflects the increasing importance of abortion to the We Hate Abortion hierarchy. Earlier this year, Benedict ordered all Catholic schools to replace mathematics classes with angry tirades against pro-choice politicians. In March, Benedict removed St. Francis of Assisi from the communion of saints, saying Francis' canonization was invalid due to the popular friar's refusal to blockade gynecologist's offices of the 1220s.
"Jesus is commonly quoted as saying love thy neighbor, but the Greek is mistranslated," Benedict told the crowd. "The Greek term for 'neighbor' is the same as 'womb,' while the word for 'love,' 'agape,' means 'no surgeons allowed.' That God revealed modern medical practices to the ancient world shows he shares my concerns about the abortion issue."
"Kirk knows far more about God's will than Anselm ever did," said Life Preserver James Smithson, a theology professor at the University of Notre Dame. "Questions of existence and the nature of God could open the door to anti-life teaching in the church."
