‘We will not comply’

Catholic leaders distribute letter slamming Obama admin contraceptive mandate

“In effect, the president is saying we have a year to figure out how to violate our consciences.”

We’ve covered the Catholic Church’s ongoing battle with the Obama administration over contraception health care mandates for quite some time. Over the weekend, though, the stand-off took an unusual turn, as Catholic churches across America read a letter to congregants that perfectly encapsulated the church’s stance against the impending federal requirements.

The Church’s vocal arguments against the Obama administration are centered upon a Health and Human Services Department requirement that employers must include contraception and abortion-inducing drugs in health-care coverage. While this requirement doesn’t apply to houses of worship, it will force Catholic colleges, hospitals and other Christian groups to provide these drugs despite their faith-based opposition to them…

…Beck’s call for engagement went beyond simply calling Catholics to take a stand. He also encouraged people of all faiths to recognize the issue’s importance, urging them to come together to “assist the Catholics in everything they are doing right now.”

“Nobody’s asking anybody to change their theology or to have doctrinal debates,” Beck continued. “This is about our liberty and our religious liberty to be specific.”…

…Two bioethicists — one from Duke University, the other from the National Institute of Health — bring up the question “What makes killing wrong?” in the latest issue of the Journal of Medical Ethics. Using their definition of killing, the authors conclude if the person is “universally and irreversibly disabled” and has “no abilities to lose” then killing them to take organs for donation in order to save the lives of others should not be considered morally wrong…

Update 2: Catholic Church Rejects Surrender Terms from Obama

My Catholic priest, Father Larry Swink, delivered a homily on Sunday that I told him would make headlines. In the toughest sermon I have ever heard from a pulpit, he attacked the Obama Administration as evil, even demonic, and warned of religious persecution ahead. What was also newsworthy about the sermon was that he cited The Washington Post in agreement—not on the subject of the Obama Administration being evil, but on the matter of its abridgment of the constitutional right to freedom of religion.

What is happening is extraordinary and unprecedented. The Catholic Church is in open revolt against the Obama Administration, with Fr. Swink noting from the pulpit that priests across the archdiocese were joining the call on Sunday to rally Catholics to resistance against the U.S. Government. He said we are entering a time of religious persecution and that Catholics and others will have to make a final decision about which side they are on…

Update 3: Signs of the End of the Republic

Some idiotic Catholics, like Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D., Conn.), feels the White House handled the Church appropriately when Obama called Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York and told him all Catholic Institutions will provide what they call “Women’s Reproductive Rights” in accordance with Obamacare. Some absentee Catholic women are stupidly mistaken thinking this is about “Birth Control”. You silly ignorant women. Please turn in your Catholic card and pick up your Facism card. I have no time trying to explain that under the umbrella of “Women’s Reproductive Rights” also we have Abortion, we have Abortifacients, we have teens getting abortions & birth control without parents consent, we have what I call all sorts of assaults on the Moral integrity of this once Free Nation.

You may be wondering why would the Obama Administration do this now, especially in an Election year. I believe they feel so arrogant in their positions they care not of the blowback, and have estimated with the GOP Primaries on going this would take the back seat in the news. So far so good. The MSM has nothing to say about this, which again proves their allegiance to the White House…
