"Catholic Schools Pray Instead of Protest for National School Walkout": When "Pro-Life" Means "We Don't Protest — Well, Not for Gun Control. Abortion Is Another Matter."

If you think about it, this is a story about when "praying" isn't praying at all — any more than "pro-life" is actually pro-life in what the "pro-life" movement has made of itself. It's a story about the capacity of people  to lie to themselves spectacularly and to lie to others, as they claim the highest of ideals and the moral high road. While the road they walk along (and lead others along) is anything but the high road (see: Trump presidency, for which 6 in 10 white "pro-life" Catholics voted) . . . .
