Sean Hannity Promotes Contraception, Abortion & War

June 2007

Neocon Catholic Sean Hannity, according to Fr. Thomas J. Euteneuer (President of Human Life International, in his e-Newsletter "Spirit & Life," www.hli.org, March 9), is "shameless -- even scandalous -- [in his] promotion of birth control. Yes, I have heard him personally say, 'I have no problem with birth control. It's a good thing.'" Fr. Euteneuer was invited to defend his position on the Hannity & Colmes show that same day (March 9) on neocon Fox TV. Hannity hurled tirades at Fr. Euteneuer, and Hannity cut him off many times. Then Hannity changed the subject to the clerical sex scandals.

Fr. Euteneuer said in his subsequent e-Newsletter (March 12): "Hannity is also clearly pro-choice on abortion in cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother, and he is really cozy with the likes of Rudy Giuliani whose love for abortion and everything gay is hardly a secret. It has even been revealed that Hannity's website, Hannity.com has a gay dating service that Sean knows about and apparently 'has no problem with;' no different from his attitude in regard to birth control." In Fr. Euteneuer's e-Newsletter of March 16, he said: "We know that all chemical contraception actually causes abortions at the embryonic stage...."

It was unfortunate that Fr. Euteneuer didn't mention Hannity's hardcore warmongering on Iraq.

But at least Sean Hannity is consistent: contraception, abortion, and war.

Indeed, how can a supposed conservative or traditionalist hold such. Yet I can not forsee Catholics or any other Christians for that matter rallying to a traditionalist Taft conservative. What does that leave? Posted by: martillo

It is sad that a person, so in the national spotlight and an aclaimed Catholic, should betray his religion. However, if you are going to criticize Hannity, how about the infamous Catholic democratic senators (Kennedy, Leahy, Durbin, Kerry)and Pelosi in House? These people are the leaders of a party that opposes pro-life judges to the higher courts, encourages/protects gay rights, supports abortion. These people can and do really hurt this country and Catholic citizens. They support the unions that are forcing the homosexual agenda down the throats of our young school children. Pray for them and for our country because we are in a period of conflict with a strong secular progressive movement that bodes ill for America as we knew it. Posted by: wunsch

I no longer listen to Sean Hannity due to his heretic beliefs. He fawns all over Rudy. Sean must be intellectually brain-dead. How can any supposed "Catholic" support contraception in direct opposition to clear Church teaching? The Muslims are out-breeding us. In 200 years the world will be mostly Muslim due to their high birth rate. They could stop warring with us tomorrow, keep having large families, and in 200 years dominate the Earth.

Are we to conclude that Father Morris' status as a Fox News contributor is more important to him than his status as a priest? How could any serious Catholic defend Sean Hannity? Posted by: fr_richard

clandr56 (July 15) . worries that “in 200 years the world will be mostly Muslim”

The Neo-cons hope that long before the 200 years rupture comes, if they will be successful to force God’s hand by the stupid and murderous war in Iraq.

They concentrate everything on the short run, and dn’t worry about the future.

Of course, God has his own time-table, and also has a place for the Hannity’s and other “great Americans” in a place tha begins with H, and ends with ell.
