A reader sent me a link to the following interview between Larry King and Michael Moore.
King: What about how he’s handled the Rev. [Jeremiah] Wright thing?
Moore: Jeez, you know, I mean I go to Mass still. I’m a practicing Catholic. I’ve been that way all my life. But if I had — if I had gotten up every time I heard a priest from the pulpit in my travels around the country say things like I’ve heard them say, that birth control is a sin, that women should not be priests, that women should have a different role in church …
King: You’d be walking out all the time?
Moore: I would have been walking out so much — that would have been so much aerobic activity for me … I wouldn’t look like this.
I thinks I will call BS on this. Either that or I would like a list of churches he has attended that actually mention birth control and women’s ordination. But even if true it can’t me much of a shock or surprise to hear a homily that actually teaches what the Church teaches.
Though what is really ridiculous is his comparison of Wright’s rants with the constant teaching of the Catholic Church. As if the Church teaching against contraception is the same thing as saying that the government invented AIDS to kill black people. This is just relativism used to divert a question. Just like when Obama was asked about Ayers he said he was also friends with Sen. Coburn as if being friends with a pro-life senator is the same thing as opening your senate campaign in the home of a unrepentant domestic terrorist. In Moore’s case just mentioning the Catholic Church is sure to get no follow up from Larry King since the Catholic Church is the epitome of evil for liberals.
