Father Tad Pacholczyk and Cloning



Tomorrow will be a pro life assembly at the school I teach at. For those wondering, it is a private Catholic school, thus explaining why we are having this assembly. Last year, Father Tad showed up to talk about stem cell research and why embryonic stem cell research is a bad idea. The general review by the students was simply the following: ZZZZZZZZZ ZZZZZZZZZ ZZZZZZZZZZ. I wish I was kidding on this, but if you need confirmation, ask James Martin at Virginia Progressive on this one and he will confirm it.

I will talk about what he has to say on cloning tomorrow. Personally, I am interested in what he has to say namely because cloning is something (being the sci fi junkie that I am) that interests me. There are a number of practical applications and concerns that need to be addressed on this issue. So stay tuned tomorrow for my report on this assembly.

James, show some respect for the name of Jesus which is sacred for Christians. using is as a swear word or in a flippant manner is wrong.

Fr. Tad's academic credentials and experience on these issues speak for themselves. He is one of the most intelligent and morally upright persons when it comes to moral and scientific topics. He is only "boring" to people who refuse to learn material that is different from their worldview of things. The heart of Fr. Tad's positions on key moral issues is that certain things are so opposed to the Natural Law that to approve them is self-destructive to persons and to civilizations as history has shown.

I and several friends attended a seminar at Palm Beach Atlantic University on stem cells and cloning. There were four faculty members in support of stem cells and cloning. Alone on the side of against was Father Tad. His arguments and support overwhelmed the other speakers. He changed the hearts and minds of several that day. I encourage anyone to read Fr. Tad's writings on the issue. I refer others to his writings. Great stuff!
