Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 5-30-2012 – On Wednesday, May 30, the Rockford Register Star ran a front page story with a large color picture featuring a group of anti-Catholic protesters who are supporting a group of pro-abortion, Sisters. The Vatican is investigating these sisters for “serious doctrinal problems.” What is so troubling about this article is the Register Star is again promoting those who support abortion and hate the Catholic Church, while at the same time the Register Star continues to promote abortion in a favorable way while ignoring critical facts about the abortion industry and it’s supporters.
A few examples:
In April 2012 a rally was held in Rockford in support of the Catholic Bishops in their fight for religious freedom. This rally was ignored by the Register Star even though it was attended by 1000 people. Yet an anti-Catholic rally attended by only 20 people from Crystal Lake earned front page treatment.
In May 2012 over 45 Catholic Dioceses and charitable institutions filed a massive lawsuit against the federal government in defense of religious freedom. This may be the most important battle in our lifetime as government attacks religion and religious freedom, but because the lawsuit was issued by faithful Catholics it was ignored by the Register Star.
On May 29, 2012, the very day the Register ran a huge story supporting anti-Catholic protesters, it was announced in the national media that Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion chain, was caught coaching women on how to commit sex-selection abortions. So far the Register Star has kept this horrific news about the planned and tax-funded intentional gendercide of female babies hidden – yet the Register Star finds room to promote a few elderly anti-Catholic and pro-abortion-supporting protesters.
The Register Star does have the right to cover the stories it wants to. But the Register Star’s continued contempt for faithful Christians makes any clear-thinking person sit up and take notice. It certainly exposes to the public that the Register Star is not looking out for the public good. The Register Star is continuing to practice the anti-Christian bigotry and cover up for the abortion industry that allowed the Rockford abortion mill to destroy lives for years in an unsanitary, illegal, and dangerous abortion mill.
The Register Star’s bigotry and biased reporting hurts everyone in Rockford.
