Obama’s ham-fisted act of assault against the Catholic Church has done more for practical ecumenism than anything in years. Now we have the amazing and beautiful spectacle of a Southern Baptist who declares himself ready to go to jail to resist the God King’s tyrannical act.
Meanwhile, other headlines in the Furor That Wasn’t Supposed to Happen include
Obama Needs To Stop ‘Intruding Into Internal Life Of Church’…
struggles to stifle uproar…
That last headline is the most telling. He is arrogant enough that he managed to convince himself there would be no backlash. Instead, he’s got everybody from Keehan, to nervous Democrats in Catholic swing states, to Protestants who recognize they are next on the gallows, to political opportunists, to absolutely sincere Catholic lefties who finally recognize what a malicious and vindictive man he is, to the whole episcopacy, to conservatives who clearly recognize the menace he is and always have. Heck, even Chris Mathews is astounded at the stupid gratuitous malice of this tyrannical act. And the uproar continues to grow, because in his hubris our God King badly miscalculated. Sin made him stupid.
When this act is defeated, let us sow salt in its smoking ashes and make sure this is never attempted again.
