Church condemns nine-year-old's abortion...

BRAZIL's influential Catholic Church today raged against an abortion carried out on a nine-year-old girl who had been pregnant with twins after allegedly being raped by her stepfather.

  1. The catholic church has deceived itself into thinking that it is on solid moral grounds with its position on abortion. Yet that position is about to become quite untenable by a wholly new interpretation of the moral teaching of Christ which may very well bring down the christian church.

    It redefines Faith and the central element of the Resurrection and focuses specifically on marriage, Love and human sexuality, overturning all natural law ethics and theory.

    At stake is the credibility of several thousand years of religious history and moral teaching.
