The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Is Alito Serious?

Senator Kent Conrad, a democrat from North Dakota, said he and Alito recently discussed Alito's Roman Catholicism, but that they did not talk specifically about abortion. "He has never felt there was a conflict between his own moral precepts and the precepts of his church and his role as a judge," Conrad said.

DANGER, WILL ROBINSON!!! DANGER!!!

Hello?!?! Never felt any conflicts???

The Catholic church is against birth control of any kind; the US legal system allows birth control. This is a conflict.

The Catholic church is nominally against the death penalty; the US legal system allows the death penalty. This is a conflict.

The Catholic church is vehemently against abortion; the US legal system allows the right to chose. This is a conflict.

The Catholic church is against gays and lesbians and has decreed that "practicing" homosexuality is not to be permitted; the US legal system now allows consenting adults to do pretty much whatever they want in the privacy of their own home. This is a conflict.

In fact, most Catholics will admit that they disagree on moral grounds with at least some of church doctrine. But somehow, Alito doesn't see any conflicts...

How can Alito claim that he has never felt a conflict between the church, his Precepts, and his role as a judge?!? Oh wait - is it because he's a fundamentalist or is it possibly because he's being untruthful?
