A united effort to destroy Obama’s plans … May 21, 2012

… I think Marc Barnes stated it aptly when he said

When any creature that normally takes half a century to form a complete statement starts a united effort to destroy your plans, think twice about your own brilliance.

And that is exactly what happened today, a united effort.

The Archdiocese of New York, headed by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., headed by Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the University of Notre Dame, and 40 other Catholic dioceses and organizations around the country announced on Monday that they are suing the Obama administration for violating their freedom of religion, which is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution.

The dioceses and organizations, in different combinations, are filing 12 different lawsuits filed in federal courts around the country. The Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. has established a special website–preservereligiousfreedom.org–to explain its lawsuit and present news and developments concerning it.

  • It is a shame that every diocese, religious community, and Catholic organization isn’t a party to this suit. But I’ll take what I can get.

    • Mitchell Palmquist

       Perhaps they should look into getting this made into a Class Action suit so any catholic group can join in on the lawsuit on the cheap.

    ent-bishops. wow, that makes Obama Saruman, which is pretty accurate. Let’s run these down:

    Saruman used the power of his voice to hide his evil deeds.Check.

    He lied and deceived innocent, weak minded fools (Wormtongue Jenkins?)Check!

    and he had a BIG LONG WHITE BEARD!!!!CHECK!!!Um, ok, 2 out of 3 ain’t bad. 

    • Right on all counts…only I would go for a Womtongue Pelosi instead. FOR GONDOR AND ALL THAT IS GOOD AND CATHOLIC!!!! WE RIDE!

      Oh! and my favourite..’The ent(-bishops) will awake and find that they are strong’

    Hopefully, the Supreme Court will strike the Health Care law in June and these lawsuits will become unnecessary.
    Like it says in Psalm 68:
    Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered,And let those who hate Him flee before Him.
     As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    As wax melts before the fire

    Where were these political hacks for the last 10 years, as Dolan led New York’s catholics under an identical state law?
