The church is not a political entity.
… are they not supposed to have churches and/or charities in the U.S.?
First, The Holy See is a political entity, as it is a country in of itself. They play world politics.
Second, does the Church operate in an environment that allows for abortions? Yes, they operate here, in this country, which has laws allowing abortion.
My point is that they are hypocritical - as they support charities in a nation committing abortions, yet do not support another entity that also does charities, that supports abortion. [/quote]
They are not supporting abortions here. They’re mere existance does not mean they support abortion. By your logical any church, mosque, temple, syagouge, house, business, charity, or organization existing with in the borders of the U.S. are supporting of abortion, the death penalty, and a drinking age of 21 by simply residing here.
If I recall correctly, most religions oppose abortion, yet they are here.
I challenge you to find one shred of documentation where the Catholic Church is spending a single cent on anything even remotely supporting abortion. This I’d have to see. Churches are even largely tax exempt as well.
You generalizations are bleading into areas that are unrelated. Amnesty is a charity. The U.S. is a country. We are not talking ball parks here, this isn’t even the same game.
