CALLING ALL NEO-CATHOLICS: Pope suggests contraception can be condoned in Zika crisis
This just in from the AP's Nicole Winfield: ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE (AP) — Pope Francis has suggested that women threatened with the Zika virus could use artificial contraception, saying there's a clear moral difference between aborting a fetus and preventing a pregnancy.

Francis was asked Wednesday en route home from Mexico if abortion or birth control could be considered a "lesser evil," when confronting the Zika crisis in Brazil, where some babies have been born with abnormally small heads to Zika-infected mothers. READ REPORT HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: So the intrinsically evil is now the lesser of two evils? Is the pope actually suggesting that having a baby with birth defects is evil?

Hey, who are we to judge?

Now does it concern the neo-Catholics?!  Jimmy? Voris? Karl? You guys good with this?  Nothing to see here?
