"God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them:
'Be fertile and multiply and fill the earth
...from one man in regard to his fellow man I will demand an accounting for human life.
If anyone sheds the blood of man,
by man shall his blood be shed;
For in the image of God
has man been made.
Be fertile, then, and multiply;
abound on earth and subdue it.' "
Contraception is a sin committed against God's "future creatures" who, like all of humanity, are called to find their glory and salvation as they are given life and therefore may also "praise the LORD":
"Let this be written for the generation to come,
and let his future creatures praise the LORD:
'The LORD looked down from his holy height,
from heaven he beheld the earth,
To hear the groaning of the prisoners,
to release those doomed to die.' "
May God free all of those "doomed to die", "prisoners" of the cult of Death, who hate the lives of those to be born, the infant in the womb and the child-yet-to-be-conceived. May God's rebuke of the agents of the evil of the cult of Death bring their correction, that they may learn to think as God does:
The Vatican statement on Nancy Pelosi's meeting yesterday with Benedict XVI:
"His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church's consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoins all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in cooperation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development," the Vatican wrote, having released the statement moments before the two met.
