Well it’s obvious that the major media outlets are attempting to change reality to one that better suits their ideology; according to the media, it’s all about birth control and not freedom of religion. Here’s just a couple of examples:
Of course, in the articles they point to THE ISSUE: “House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday accused Obama from the floor of the House of attacking religious freedom by not exempting religious-affiliated organizations.”
As Cardinal designate Archbishop Timothy Dolan wrote in the Wall Street Journal a few days ago titled, “ObamaCare and Religious Freedom.” The point here is Religious Freedom. Our culture simply seems to struggle to understand that the Church teaches the truth through it’s bishops. One is free to practice what the Church teaches, or not. Not a difficult concept. Yet the truth is, well, the truth. It cannot change.
Fact is, the Obama administration, through its faux catholyc HHS Secretary Sebelius, is attempting to dictate norms to the Catholic Church in America. That’s just today – imagine what will happen tomorrow or in the future if this is allowed to stand. The US Government could dictate to any entity how it should think, believe, and conduct it’s business no matter its own principles. The US Government could decide what principles are important and what are not. Today it’s Catholics, tomorrow it’s parents, or . . .
A well-known author noted just a few days ago how the Nazi Party in Germany instituted similar dictates to its citizenry that was simply accepted without much of a fuss:
“In the beginning, it always starts really, really small. We need to understand as Americans — if we do not see this as a bright line in the sand — if you’re not a Catholic, if you use contraception — doesn’t matter. Because eventually, this kind of government overreach will affect you.”
The remarkable irony here is that the POTUS wouldn’t consider doing something similar to Muslims here in America, . . . at least not yet. But if given its way, it surely will.
