Ok, so we all know I’m viewed as the Great Ninny by Christians for voting Obama, because it was felt I simply ignored the abortion issue. However, I heartily applaud America’s Catholic Bishops threatening to close their hospitals if the Freedom of Choice Act is signed. This is one of the most hard-core, grand-scale, bare-knuckle political moves I’ve seen in a long time and I can’t help but love it.
Bare-Knuckled Pro-life Bishops
Ben Bartlett lives in Louisville, Ky., with his wife and two terrific kids. His degree is in Political Theory and Constitutional Democracy from Michigan State University, and he has a bunch of education from a bunch of other places with nothing official to show for it. He has taught high school speech and debate, worked for a congressman in Washington DC, and worked in the health and energy industries. He is interested in how pop culture, history, politics, and theology interact with the inner and community lives of individuals... which is weird because he now works as a business analyst. Few things make him happier than reading, discussing, and recommending books.
