Another Catholic Politician Needs CCD Classes

Following in the steps in those "ardent, practicing" Catholics Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm recently supported Proposoal 2, a proposition which would expand human embryo stem cell research in Michigan, saying:
As a Catholic, I can say to be pro-cure is to be pro-life.
Thankfully, the local bishop Earl Boyea directed the following response at Governor Granholm:
Of course Catholics and all other responsible citizens will continue to seek cures for disease and injury, but to imply that proposal two is a valid expression of Catholic principles is shocking. Nothing could be further from the truth. Saint Paul reminds us that we must preach the truth in season and out of season. The truth will never go unspoken. To be in favor of proposal two is not to be pro life. A well formed Catholic conscience would never lead a person to support proposal two as a Catholic.
