The image of Christ's seamless garment, the one made for him by his blessed Mother, has become an icon to modernists seeking to Protestantize the Catholic Church.

For nearly 2,000 years, the Church taught that different moral actions had a different "weight," but now, bishops and priests who support sodomy and breaking U.S. law on immigration are claiming it's all the same thing — that they're all "life issues."

The idea was developed in 1971 by Catholic pacifist Eileen Egan, who described it as a "consistent ethic of life." In 1983, suspected satanist and homosexual Cdl. Joseph Bernardin of Chicago gave it the popular "seamless garment" moniker. 


This new theology was mainstreamed by Pope Francis in his 2018 apostolic exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate. He writes:

Our defense of the innocent unborn, for example, needs to be clear, firm and passionate, for at stake is the dignity of a human life, which is always sacred and demands love for each person, regardless of his or her stage of development. Equally sacred, however, are the lives of the poor, those already born, the destitute, the abandoned and the underprivileged, the vulnerable infirm and elderly exposed to covert euthanasia, the victims of human trafficking, new forms of slavery and every form of rejection.

In the last meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, more faithful bishops re-emphasized that abortion is the preeminent issue facing us today. The logic is that if we, as a society, don't acknowledge the value of a completely helpless unborn child in the womb, we can't truly value life outside of the womb.

More faithful bishops re-emphasized that abortion is the preeminent issue facing us today.

Of course, other bishops disagreed. Homopredator Theodore McCarrick-appointee Cdl. Blase Cupich and sodomy advocate Bp. Robert McElroy constructed a straw man, trying to claim Catholics who support innocent human life in the womb are somehow opposed to the dignity of others who are already born. They then accused the pro-life bishops of being divisive and opposing the Church by contradicting the "Magisterium of Pope Francis."
