Elizabeth Scalia highlights the iniquitous hypocrisy of the Obama Administration who will not exempt the Little Sisters of the Poor from paying for health care that includes abortion, contraceptives and sterilization. What kind of a creepy government have we elected who trumpet their concern for the poor and needy while imposing a crippling health care tax which makes the very sisters who are serving the poor pay millions of dollars in fines for living by their conscience?
The additional crime is that the sisters’ resistance to this outrage will be one of the few. Most “Catholic” hospitals, universities, colleges and schools will quietly go along with the government’s plans saying, “What can we do it’s the law of the land…” Therefore the few who hold out will be persecuted into submission. So it has always been–the vast majority capitulate so the few who do not are easily picked off.
Why do I think that most Catholic institutions will capitulate? Because they already have. Half the Catholics voted for Obama and what noises do we hear in opposition to the unfair law? They will capitulate then because they have already bought into the Spirit of the Age.
I am seeing storm clouds on the horizon. Fasten your seat belts.
