And a good thing too, since the Administration’s assault on the Catholic Church (which is what this is really about) threatens to drive such dangerous criminals as the Little Sisters of the Poor out of the US.
Sez my beloved #2 son about the Mandate’s persecution of the nuns:
As relatively reasonable, carefully-spoken, open-to-discussion Catholic who does not in any way identify as a Republican or a conservative and does *not* think that Obama is the devil: This enrages me to the point of tears. If you are so set on getting cheap contraception that NUNS CAN NO LONGER CARE FOR THE IMPOVERISHED ELDERLY, I promise you that you are doing it wrong.
My dear boy, it was never *about* access to contraceptives. It was *always* about smashing and hurting the Church’s works of mercy. Shove the Church out of the social network and you give Caesar more scope to seize more power and the funding to do the job less efficiently, but more bossily.
Nice to see the Courts throwing a spanner in the works.
