Nothing matters above what the Democrats want.
So, if the Dems put some language in the bill that excludes abortion, the bishops have no problem with selling almost 300 million people into communist slavery just to give free health care to the “47” million that don’t have it (or CHOOSE not to have it) now?
What are you? Another one of those “Hate Catholics” FR clowns or just another “former” Catholic who just can't find a Confessional.
At least the Catholic Bishops are making a stand...
what are the religious down at your church doing...
that is “if” you have a “church.”
Don't think so much...you might pull a muscle.
Catholic Bishops don’t mind socialism as long as it doesn’t pay for abortions -—never mind that socialism is immoral in itself
“One day after the White House contradicted an assertion by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops that all current versions of the health-care bill permit funding of abortion, the Catholic bishops declared they would vigorously oppose the bill if it was not changed to include language to prohibit abortion funding.”
Somehwat unidimensional opposition. The bill amounts to elderly “genocide” ALSO. It also involves communism by taking away health benefits from people who paid for them all their lives. It also involves thievery and treason as it allows illegal invaders who never paid into the system to steal from it.
My, my, grandma...what a broad brush you paint the Catholic Church with.
Well, it's reassuring to know that even after months of not posting a religious thread on FR, the "Anti-Catholic Bigot Club" is alive & well.
And where do you attend religious services on Sunday...or do you?
BTW, what are the religious at your church doing... do you know or do you even have a “church”...
It's easier to stand on the sidelines and criticize those of us who are “in the fight” than to actually “get in the fight” now isn't it!
I was just pointing out that there’s a lot more evil in this bill than just abortions. Communism kills more people than abortion and the bishops should be opposed to all of it. Even if they “win” and get abortion funding removed, it will just get slipped back in under some “health of the woman” provision. To believe anything else is naive.
I don’t hate Catholics. My own church leadership isn’t doing squat to stop this bill, but they also aren’t sending out press releases. The story was about your bishops, so that was what I commented on. When an announcement from the UMC hits FR saying that it opposes only part of the bill but is cheering for the communist slavery parts, then I will comment on their hypocrisy.
You know, you don’t have to insult people that have an opinion you don’t like. I just wish your Bishops AND my Bishops would take a stand against this monstrosity.
AS usual you just accuse people of Catholic Bashing but don’t refute the FACTS
Bishops could care less about socialism as long as no $$$ for abortion
The same bishops that were on Reagan’s case calling for a Nuclear Freeze etc
I quit going to Catholic Church years ago
I couldn’t stand the PC sermons and left wing BS
The leaders are a disgrace
FYI, genius, THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PROTESTANTS & JEWS WHO HAVE NEVER MADE A STAND AGAINST ABORTIONS. AND IN “FACT” HAVE VOTED FOR AND FUNDED ABORTIONS FOR 35 YEARS. “FACT”
“I quit going to Catholic Church years ago”
Figures...well, it's your soul, not mine!
Do yourself a favor, and go to Confession today.
Hell can be mighty hot for eternity...
I know, I was there for two years.
Well, then I suggest you “clean up your own house” before you criticize those of us who are actually fighting abortions!!!
If there’s already a law that prevents federal funding, then it wouldn’t hurt at all to put it in the health care bill, too, would it?
I would think he wouldn't want to get in trouble with GOD before church.
Here's a list of 44 Catholic bishops against Obamacare.
And here's another comment:
Yea, well as we all know, stammerin’, stutterin’, uh-uh-uh Gibbs is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
A person could do stand-up at the Improv 365 days a year using Hussein & his propeller-heads and the rest of the dumb-ass ‘Rats for material and NEVER repeat a joke. BIG SMILE
See post #17.
His speech teacher was obama.
