JUST WHAT IS THE NATURE OF THE WAR PRESIDENT OBAMA AND LEFT WING DEMOCRATS ARE WAGING UPON THE BISHOPS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?
But the fact that the Catholic bishops each election year dare to call Catholics to look at all the pro-life issues of candidates and then vote according to their conscience, a Catholic conscience that is well informed, this alarms those in the left wing of our country who do not want any public role for religion that might in any way derail or postpone their godless secular agenda for the nation.
What is this agenda? Birth control provided by the government as well as abortion on demand, even late term abortion. It is also about redefining marriage and making same sex marriage the law of the land. It is also about women's rights. In this secular agenda, in the minds of godless secularists and some religious people, the Catholic bishops are like Islamic extremists trying to keep the world from moving forward with all these human rights. Just look at who the Catholic bishops will ordain and won't. The bishops must be stopped and by law if necessary!
For the most part in the world of religion, it has only been those pesky Catholic bishops who have publicly challenged President Obama on his HHS health care mandate that every women, no matter who is providing their insurance policy, must have what is called euphemistically, "preventive health care" meaning artificial contraception, sterilization and abortifacients. By the way, the "pill" today causes a fertilized egg to be expelled and thus is an abortifacient.
For the administration this is not just about their understanding a women's rights, but the fact that preventing pregnancy is cheaper than providing pre-natal care and care for the infant and mother at the time of birth and any birth problems of either the mother or child that could be very costly. Insurance companies aren't going to complain about providing "free birth control" for in the long run it will be cheaper than providing actual health care to mothers and infants. How cynical the democrats have become!
So liberal democrats and the far left will by law make the Catholic Church do what the Catholic Church teaches her members they cannot do for it violates divine law revealed in natural law. But these godless secularists and some religious people will say to the bishops of the Catholic Church that they can still teach what is divinely revealed just keep it in the Church and away from the public square and leave it up to Catholics to decide if they will follow what is divinely revealed, so provide them the means to have birth control and help to fund it and we'll make you do so by making it the law of the land.
Nothing like government intrusion into the affairs of the Church. I wonder if there is a constitutional mandate against that?
