Predictably enough, the Vatican has downplayed the conferral of the title “Dame in the Pontifical Order of St Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician who is notorious for her international promotion of abortion, including the raising of several hundred million dollars for “She Decides,” the organization she founded to help insure the worldwide availability of abortion following President Trump’s restoration of the Mexico City Policy banning any federal funding of abortion in other countries.

While Ploumen has — also predictably enough — touted the award as an endorsement of her “work,” the Vatican, as the Catholic Herald reports, now announces that “the award was a matter of diplomatic routine around the visit of a head of state. A spokeswoman said the award was ‘in keeping with the diplomatic practice of exchanging honours between delegations during official visits by heads of state or government to the Vatican. Therefore, it is not at all an endorsement of the political views in favour of abortion or birth control that Ms Ploumen promotes.’”

 Mr. Pope I have a question for you, what does the Bible say about yoking yourself with unbelievers?

Mr. Pope I have a question for you, what does the Bible say about yoking yourself with unbelievers?
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14 KJV)
