Catholic League Poised To Go To War With Obama Over Mandatory Birth Control Payments

Catholic leaders upped the ante Monday, threatening to challenge the Obama administration over a provision of the new health care law that would require all employers, including religious institutions, to pay for birth control.

As CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reports, it could affect the presidential elections.

Catholic leaders are furious and determined to harness the voting power of the nation’s 70 million Catholic voters to stop a provision of President Barack Obama’s new heath car reform bill that will force Catholic schools, hospitals and charities to buy birth control pills, abortion-producing drugs and sterilization coverage for their employees.

“Never before, unprecedented in American history, for the federal government to line up against the Roman Catholic Church,” said Catholic League head Bill Donohue.

Already Archbishop Timothy Dolan has spoken out against the law and priests around the country have mobilized, reading letters like this from the pulpit. Donohue said Catholic officials will stop at nothing to put a stop to it.

“This is going to be fought out with lawsuits, with court decisions, and, dare I say it, maybe even in the streets,” Donohue said.

    “Catholic leaders are furious and determined to harness the voting power of the nation’s 70 million Catholic voters ”

    When 54% of Catholic voters were registered as Democrats in 2008 whereby voting for Obama and his Universal Health Care, it is a little late for the Catholic Church to be sermonizing on the unfairness the Church’s Social Justice policy.

    Further; is the Catholic Church saying that as long as the Catholic Church voters are exempt from the evil reprecussions of Obama’s Health Care bill then the Catholic Church is perfectly fine with that satanic piece of legislation?

    Sadly, yes. Many of us noted this. Pretending to be pro-life while cheering on the bribery fueled power grab was sickening. They are learning what Stupak learned. Fig leafs don’t provide much cover, especially when dealing with a shark like Obama.
