First off Fr. Philip Neri Powell, OP links to what he calls “Cringe-worthy comments from Domlife.org”. And indeed they are quite cringe-worthy, though there are still some who realize what Obama’s election means to the innocent in the womb. The difference between two Dominican nuns commenters part of the Adrian Dominicans was quite stark.
Tom of Disputations also looks at these comments and notices ” complete lack of any residue of Dominican formation in many of the comments. How many could have been written by just about any politically liberal American and posted to just about any politically liberal American comment board? Does contemplation of the truth really add so little to political observation?”
The comments are rather amazing considering that they are all from vowed Dominicans or Lay Dominicans. Somehow I can’t see St. Thomas Aquinas writing a defense for voting for President-elect Obama. More likely a Sed Contra in response for such a defense.
With Dominicans like these it is no surprise that St. Thomas Aquinas seems to be stepping in and helping out the pro-life movement himself. Here is a wonderful story of how St. Thomas Aquinas figures in the conversion of a former abortionist in Serbia personally responsible for performing 48 thousand abortions.
