THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
What would reduce one's culpability before God and Church would be not knowing that natural law reveals divine law. Breaking divine law in that context would only be venial sin but always immoral or evil.
So what President Obama is doing is helping us as Catholics to revisit Humanae Vitae in the most authoritative teaching document that pope's have, an encyclical and rediscovering the Church's infallible teaching on natural law revealing divine law which is normative for all Catholics and for all people. Again let me say thank you President Obama, thank you, thank you, thank you! We couldn't do this without you!
Pope Paul VI was besieged by liberals in the Church not to reiterate the Church's teaching that natural law reveals divine law and in fact wanted him to repudiate that infallible teaching by allowing for artificial birth control as a pastoral solution to those struggling to plan their families and support them. There was hell to pay when he issued his prophetic and courageous teaching in Humanae Vitae. He held steadfast in promoting this teaching even when liberal dissenting Catholics castigated him and marched away from the Church or ignored him and the Church altogether by remaining in the Church and receiving Holy Communion even though in a state of mortal sin to flaunt their unbelief in divine law.
The Holy Father did not cave in to these liberal's ungodly demands, unlike the Susan Komen race for the Cure did when they rescinded a sound, moral decision not to fund Plan Parenthood anymore. They were pressured to cave in by the sinister forces of our left wing political elites in the media and in politics.
So, thank you President Obama for helping the Catholic Church to rediscover Humanae Vitae as reiterating the Church's infallible teaching concerning natural law.
But also thank you for allowing us to brush up on our Civics 101 class to understand how you are now trying to undo the Constitution of the United States of America concerning religious liberty and the freedom of conscience.
Thanks for waking up our bishops and the almost 70 million Catholics of this country. We're a sleeping giant coming out of our moral and political slumber!
