FIAF – Catholic Edition

From Gateway Pundit:

The rule would force Christian organizations to provide free contraceptives, sterilizations and abortion drugs to workers even though this violates Catholic Church teaching. The new rules are so strict that most Catholic institutions will not qualify for an exemption.

Nancy Pelosi stands with her fellow Catholics” in standing by Obama’s decision.

Which fellow Catholics are these?

The White House engages in some doublespeak:

“Forcing religious institutions to provide insurance coverage for services that are directly in opposition to their moral beliefs is very clearly wrong,” said Kristen Day, its executive director.

The White House defended the decision. Spokesman Carney said the president has no intention of trespassing on religious liberty.

“There was extensive and careful consideration as this policy was developed and a decision was made. And the issue here is we want to be sure women, all women, have access to good health care,” he said.

Asked if there’s a debate within the administration about reconsidering, Carney responded:

“No, there’s not a debate … the decision has been made, and it was made after careful consideration.”

The decision will stand, said Carney. If you find anything incongruous in this stand, it’s probably because you’re racist.

An AP-GfK poll from December found that Catholics supported Obama by 49 percent to 45 percent in a matchup with Republican front runner Mitch Romney. But among Catholics who attend Mass weekly, Romney had the edge by 45 percent to 52 percent.

And that, my friends, is why I don’t go to church.

  1. And that, my friends, is why I don’t go to church.

    Because the best way to change something is to not participate. 😉

    Going to mass would be a lot more enjoyable if they moved the homily to after the Eucharist.

    I get your point, biw, but it’s just so hard to sit and listen to some of the stuff they say. To know that your donations are supporting things you don’t agree with.

  4. Car in, do you have the option of attending a more conservative parish?

  5. Car in Says:

    Sure, but it’s kinda far.

  6. Car in Says:

    and a bit snootie.
