was an op-ed article in the Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday by the current
bishop there stating how the HHS mandate for full women’s healthcare is somehow
“insulting and dangerous” to Charles Chaput’s sacred tradition of faith to denigrate
women and their body functions.
“Many Catholics are confused and angry. They
church is confused because the bishops do not listen to women. When women talk,
the bishops hear nothing. This “hold the pickles, hold the lettuce” dietary
rule for females only, regarding healthcare, is a bit not true deli and does not ring true to the rest of us
in the American Equality pursuit of happiness thingy.
somewhere along the timeline, George W. Bush started doling out government
bailouts to the churches, who by the way no longer listen to their members, who
by the way no longer sustain their membership numbers now that these churches have their
crony business fronts for the poor in the form of “social service” programs – whatever
are no longer in the business of faith.
Churches are simply in business.
And getting crony government bailouts in the process.
in these hard economic times, many of the bloated contracts being handed out as
Pork to these “faith-based” crony capitalism organizations could be done more
cheaply and efficiently in the private secular sector of the economy.
way, the meager healthcare services offered to the crony relatives of these
crony handout “faith-based” programs to these churches will no longer have to be
challenged by any HHS mandates.
No exceptions or religious
privileges will have to be demanded by this new generation of screaming neo-con welfare queens – the bishops
– once they go out of business and go back to “Faith”.
other words, get your lips off the government teat and stop whining about being
abused as you more than likely mismanage the government crony dole you are now getting on the tax payers' dime.
