Is the Archbishop of Denver the new Bob Casey? Recall Pennsylvania Governor Robert Casey was not invited to speak at the 1992 Democratic Convention in New York because of his pro-life views. It has been revealed by the Washington Times that Archbishop Charles Chaput, the Archbishop of Denver, has not been invited even to say a blessing at the Democratic National Convention taking place in his city. His apparent transgression: being pro-life.
Blackballing Casey in 1992 has been an ongoing embarrassment for the Democrats, because it underscores not only the extreme views of the Democratic Party on abortion but their refusal to brook any dissent at all on the topic.
This year the Democrats believe that they can attract pro-lifers by righting the wrong done to Casey. The Democrats have invited Governor Casey's son Bob to speak. Unlike his father, though, in his first year in the U.S. Senate, Casey the Younger has garnered a 65 percent positive rating by NARAL Pro-Choice America, which included his approval of U.S. funding for the U.N. Population Fund, one of the main international culprits in coerced abortions in China.
