Catholics for Biden and Parasitoid Wasps

Father James Altman has made a compelling case that it is no longer possible to be both a Catholic and a Democrat. Yet we read this:

Prominent Jesuit Father Thomas Reese has taken to Twitter to promote the national kick-off of Catholics for Biden, a “grassroots” group promoting the Democrat ticket in November.

Fanatical Democrat support for abortion makes this blasphemous. However,

Last Thursday, Father Reese published an essay insisting that it is acceptable for Catholics to vote for Catholic candidates who openly support abortion on demand.

Brace yourself for his reasoning:

“[A] Catholic Democrat can vote for Biden, even if his policies promote abortions and gay marriage, as long as the voter’s intent is not to support those positions.”

By the same logic, a good Catholic could vote for the Nazi Party, so long as the intent is not to make Jews into lampshades.

Reese says that Biden’s positions on other issues compensate for snuffing out lives and making a mockery of matrimony. The first he mentions is “racism.” Yet the Christian position is that we are all equal before God, whereas the Democrat position is that preferred races deserve special treatment at the expense of others through policies like Affirmative Action.

In the context of Catholicism, the abortion issue dwarfs all others.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: “From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person — among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.”

Abortion “is gravely contrary to the moral law,” the Catechism declares, and, therefore, a person who procures an abortion incurs excommunication from the Church “by the very commission of the offense.”

Biden is such an avid advocate of abortion that he wants to repeal the Hyde and Helms Amendments, forcing Christians to finance it. It follows that he should be excommunicated. But instead, some in the church actively support him.

In a related story,

Few parasitoids are more bizarre or disturbing than the wasps of the genus Glyptapanteles, whose females inject their eggs into living caterpillars. There, the larvae mature, feeding on the caterpillar’s fluids before gnawing through its skin en masse and emerging into the light of day. Despite the trauma, not only does the caterpillar survive—initially at least—but the larvae mind-control it, turning their host into a bodyguard that protects them as they spin their cocoons and finish maturing. The caterpillar eventually starves to death, but only after the tiny wasps emerge from their cocoons and fly away.

What a perfect metaphor for the relationship between progressives and the churches they infiltrate and subvert. You might say that Father Reese is a parasitoid priest.

“Complicated” is putting it mildly.
