Skip to comments.Obama appointee Muzzled Army Camplains and forbade them from reading Catholic Archdiocese Letter
Posted on 02/07/2012 6:48:01 AM PST by mgist
The office of the Chief of Chaplains of the U.S. Army forbade Catholic chaplains from reading, in Sunday masses, a letter about a controversial Obamacare mandate from the Catholic Churchs military archbishop. The move, which amounts to the head of Roman Catholic military chaplains calling the Obama administration un-American, will set the stage for a philosophical conflict between Catholic soldiers and their commander-in-chief.
In the forbidden letter, Archbishop Timothy Broglio encouraged Catholics in military congregations to disobey a federal government mandate part of President Obamas health care overhaul requiring Catholic employers to provide health coverage that includes sterilization , abortion-inducing drugs, and contraception.

We all need to pray hard that Obama is not re-elected or such jack boot policies will turn our nation into a virtual police state.
Wow, it looks like the Catholic Church might finally be growing a set. In the last few days they have promised civil disobedience, street protests and now they flat out tell Catholic Chaplains to disobey order. Keep this up and I might convert from Southern Baptist!
After all there are 66 million catholics in the country and it is an election year.
The police State is only a part of the dictator state Obama is going for.
Obama has opened the Pandora’s box with this attack against Religious Freedom.
His other unConstitutional acts have been largely ignored, acts like his recess appointmants and EPA rulings, but this one may be his bridge too far.
If not then we may as well hang it up.
See what happens.
We are in the beginnings phase of a tangible civil war between American Catholic institutions and the Federal government and the media barely bats their collective eyelashes. Prayers friends....
“Just Wow “
So, if hussein mandates that soldiers bow down and worship himself as the “one” , are the soldiers and chaplains then obligated to do that too?
Type in The office of the Chief of Chaplains of the U.S. Army and go there and give this froup a piece of your mind.
I MIGHT CONSIDER converting when Nancy Pelosi it excommunicated. Until then, it’s all window dressing. This “order” will go away.
These chaplains need to render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s. Since everything is God’s that doesn’t leave much for a government that opposes Him.
“first they came for the Catholics, and I did nothing...then they came for the Protestants, and I did nothing...then they came for the Jews and I did nothing...and so on, and so on!”
We must all stand together on this...pray for wisdom, discernment, and strength! Most of all, pray for His mercy and grace throughout these troubling times...
(I’m a former Catholic, married to a former Southern Baptist and we now are United Methodists! We know that God will work out the details of our many denominations, as long as we believe in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and are biblically-based in our beliefs. Denominations are like football teams from the same state: you root for your team when it plays another one in the state, but you root for any of your state’s teams when they play against anybody else! In this battle/game, it’s the Catholics vs Obamacare, so I have to root for the Catholics!)
And I wouldn’t be surprised if 46 million of them still supports obama.
You're now claiming that 70% of Catholics supported Obama.
Keeping the Beast of Government in the chains so carefully forged by the Founders just became “Page One” with this issue.
As for the weasel wording regarding potential seditious misunderstanding of the Archbishop’s letter, consider this: Officers take an oath to the Constitution, not to just the person dwelling in the White House,.
Obeying the CIC when the CIC issues an order contrary to the Constitution was never part of the oath sworn by the officers.
Here I wish to pose a question to the FR community:
“What, if anything, is obedience to an unconstitutional order a violation of?”
The mask finally falls off completely. You have to admire just what a true believer Obama is to leftist causes, and how radical his determination to push the country that way, even if it might cost him politically. We must welcome Catholics to the fight. This sort of evil authoritarian impulse has never been on display from our Commander In Chief ever. Those who talk “compromise” with such an implacable ideology have to be shamed into answering questions of how little compromising this administration and its allies have done in the past, and how they ran roughshod over laws and traditions whenever they thought they could get away with it (think how they passed their “healthcare reform” without a single Republican vote, against the wishes of the American people, and “deemed” it passed after the Scott Brown victory).
