Just because it is "legal" under civil law does not mean it is "legal" under God's moral law. In fact, your supporter in-house here echoed that same sentiment:Quote:
Last time I checked, Abortions are legal and NOT murder.
As such, the church is bound to uphold God's moral law over civil law in every case if the two clash. What is happening here is that the church (the Roman church that is) is abandoning God and siding with civil authority over a moral issue...one that God is more than clear about!Quote:
