Comparing the incomparable

“What happened at some schools cannot be compared with the millions of lives that have been destroyed by abortion.”

These are the words of a senior Vatican official, Cardinal Antonio Canizares, who was talking about the suffering of thousands of Irish children at the hands of abusive priests and nuns.

It beggars belief. I just can’t get my head around how anyone could make such a comparison, when living, breathing, knowing, sentient beings are beaten and shagged by those who have a duty of care, and this is ranked below the surgical destruction of embryos and foetuses that are aware of nothing.

Well this headcase has now been criticised for this downplaying of the Ireland scandal. Spain’s Health Minister, Trinidad Jimenez, has said it was “very serious” and “irresponsible” by the cardinal to make an “inadequate” comparison between “two completely different things.”
