Dolan: Obama is Strangling the Church

Yep.  Exactly right.  That’s what this is about.  Making war on the Church.  The good thing is that the bishops have found their voices here, along with a whole bunch of other Catholics, even in places where you would hardly have expected it, such as Michael Sean Winters over the Reporter.  Even more amazing is that the MSM is actually covering it.

Oh, and that lying wheeze about about how the Church is somehow trying to ban birth control that the White House is telling?  Please.  When you stick a gun in my ribs and force me to cough up money for your birth control, my decision to knock the gun from your hand and kick you in the groin is not “banning birth control”.  It’s self-defense.

Birth control is cheap and easy to get if you want it.  Knock yourself out.  In fact, it’s so cheap and easy to get that it’s screwing up the water supply. But, of course, in the hierarchy of Trendy Values, sexual license for Blue State lefties particularly when layered with a tasty condiment of fashionable anti-Catholicism, trumps fake concern about the environment every time.

    I’m waiting for the day when the radical environmentalist take up against hormonal contraceptives over tainted water. But I’m not holding my breath.

      If you think that’s going to happen, I’d agree you don’t hold your breath.

      They’ll simply suggest we kill off more inconvenient people to balance out the hormones in the water.

        I’m actually kind of hopeful that this may happen. I know of two instances where this kinda sorta happened already. Someone told me once that they had heard an environmentalist out in CO calling for everyone to use condoms instead of the pill because of how it was effecting fish in the rivers. And I personally know a very New Age Yoga teacher (her parents were hippies) who uses NFP because it is natural and doesn’t require using things like the pill or spermicides.

        I know at least three or four people for whom environmentalism is their main motivation not to use hormonal B.C., so it isn’t unheard of.

    I think that’s a bit premature. He isn’t strangling the Church.. yet.. He’s definitely trying to get his grubby little hands around her throat, though.

    MSW is in a very lonely spot – can’t abide the mandate, can’t abide the actions the bishops are taking.

    Rather than disarming an attacker, I suspect our ‘banning birth control” will look more like us getting shot.

    Hormones in Chesapeake Bay are destroying the crab populations. There are now 4 female crabs per male (used to be 1:1) and populations are dropping.

    • Joseph

      This is a terrible retort:

      Perhaps we should have some OB/GYNs from China or India come over here and manage the crab populations. Considering how well they do making sure human females never see the light of day, they may work wonders controlling that situation.

    Archbishop John Joseph Hughes, pray for him.

    Cardinal O’Connor, pray for him.
