Sometimes I just don't get it

So, looking a the quotes below, it sure seems to me that some are lacking moral courage for the sake of being politically correct.


“In the name of the Catholic Bishops of the United States, I would like to offer congratulations to President Barack Obama on his receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. As he has graciously said, much of the work of realizing a more peaceful and just world for all persons and nations remains to be done; but the prize was given because as President of the United States he has already changed the international conversation.”
– USCCB Statement on Obama winning Nobel Peace Prize

"The awarding of the Nobel Prize for Peace to President Obama is greeted with appreciation in the Vatican, in light of the commitment demonstrated by the President for the promotion of peace in the international arena, and in particular also recently in favor of nuclear disarmament. It's hoped that this very important recognition will further encourage that commitment, which is difficult but fundamental for the future of humanity, so that the desired results will be obtained."
– official Vatican press statement on Obama winning Nobel Peace Prize

“I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a direct killing—direct murder by the mother herself…And this is what is the greatest destroyer of peace today. Because if a mother can kill her own child—what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me—there is nothing between.”
– from Mother Teresa’s Noble Peace Prize acceptance speech

“Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”
– from Mother Teresa’s speech at the 1994 National Prayer Breakfast
