Attack on Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor

It's been a while since I've read such nonsensical and inflamatory blather as what I just saw from The Guardian regarding the good Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor. The opening salvo...
"Who carries the greatest responsibility for the deaths of unborn children in this country [UK]? I accuse the leader of the Catholic church in England and Wales, His Eminence Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor."
If you care to read the rest of what passes for jounalism in the UK, you can find the article here. If you just want the Cliffs notes, George Monbiot (author) claims that the Catholic church actually causes more abortions because we don't approve of contraception, ergo more unborn children obviously MUST DIE. Apparently, the thought of women actually giving birth never occured to him as a viable option. His conclusion is just as stupid and blatantly anti-Catholic...
"When the Pope tells bishops in Kenya - the global centre of this crisis - that they should defend traditional family values "at all costs" against agencies offering safe abortions, or when he travels to Brazil to denounce its contraceptive programme, he condemns women to death. When George Bush blocks aid for family planning charities that promote safe abortions, he ensures, paradoxically, that contraceptives are replaced with backstreet foeticide. These people spread misery, disease and death. And they call themselves pro-life."
I don't think I've heard a more vicious pile of sactimonious B.S. in quite some time. Catholic aid workers are at this very moment refusing to leave Kenya, in spite of increasing threats to their safety. What are YOU doing to help these people George Monbiot? The United States of America (i.e. George Bush) committed an additional $2.8 million in aid just last month in response to increasing insecurities within the country. How much money are YOU donating to help the people of Kenya George Monbiot? You're idea of help is to have them contracept and abort themselves right off the face of the earth. You are truly a saint of the modern liberal church. Saint Monbiot, patron Saint of Kenyan genocide.
