About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Obama’s Contempt for Religious Liberty

Posted By Bill Donohue


Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on today’s announcement from the Obama administration that it is going forward with its original “Obamacare” policy that mandates coverage of sterilization and contraceptive services in most healthcare plans:

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said today that aside from houses of worship, all other religious agencies and organizations will be required to provide sterilization and contraceptive services, including abortifacients, in their employee healthcare plans; none will be allowed to charge co-pays or deductibles. The policy goes into effect in August 2013 for these entities; all others will be required to provide these services in August 2012.

Sebelius explained how her directive applies to non-church religious entities such as Catholic hospitals and universities: “Employers wishing to take advantage of the additional year must certify that they qualify for the delayed implementation. This additional year will allow these organizations more time and flexibility to adapt to this new rule.” She also said, “I believe this proposal strikes the appropriate balance between religious freedom and increasing access to important preventive services.”

The language is Orwellian. With stunning magnanimity, Sebelius tells Catholic non-profits that they can take advantage of their one-year reprieve as long as they seek the blessings of the federal government. If they pass muster with the bureaucrats, then they have time to figure out how they can prostitute their religiously ground convictions, or prepare for bankruptcy. To top things off, after shoving the radical secular agenda down the throat of Catholics—and other people of faith who share their concerns—Sebelius congratulates the Obama administration for striking a “balance” between religious liberty and Obamacare. But, of course, no balance was struck: the edict grants nothing to those who believe in religious liberty, and she knows it.

That this dictatorial edict is being announced in an election year indicates both contempt for the First Amendment and plain stupidity.

(End of story, my comments follow.)

No damnit, it does NOT indicate plain stupidity. It shows how confident the present Administration is of winning this year's election.

Look at how the most reliably conservative (and prolife) candidates have been picked off, one by one. I spoke briefly about it recently:
http://agangershome.blogspot.com/2012/01/republican-whack-mole.html

Soon we'll have the choice of Obama or ObamaLite (Romney). I've no doubt there will be an unexpected revelation about "Mittens" waiting to be used in the campaign should he seem likely to win. Look to the past and how Obama won his selection as the Democratic Senatorial candidate and final election to the Illinois seat in the Senate.

Once he's solidly in place for another four years we can expect the American Dictatorship to go full throttle. I foresee the complete demise of our representative government. Then all dissenters will be dealt with in harsh and uncompromising terms.

Stand by folks, it's going to get damned rough with no guarantee of relief.

What scares me is the dioceses and churches who will shrug and comply because "it's the law". :-( My former parish will probably be one of those.

I wonder if Catholics will take to the streets, maybe with arms, to prevent Catholic hospitals from becoming providers for sterilization and contraceptive services? I think it could be possible.

Since the Religious Affiliation Most likely to support legalized abortion are people claiming to be Catholic, and since Catholics practice contraception etc at a rate of 98%, the USCCB will speak out on this--they already have--and bishops will speak out on this--Cdl Mahony has, and so has Abp Vigneron--and the laity will think it's just freakin' fine. We are a remnant in our own Church.

Subvet said...

Ranter, exactly. We've a few parishes like that in the Dallas Diocese also.

Scotju, I don't think so. I think what we'll see is a winnowing of the chaff from the grain, the seperation of those who are authentically Catholic and those for whom it's a cultural thing.

IR, well Jesus said the gate to Heaven was extremely narrow. We may all get the chance to find out what He really meant.
