Skip to comments.Obama Sandbags the Archbishop
Posted on 02/06/2012 9:38:27 AM PST by caveat emptor
At the end of Sunday mass at the church this writer attends in Washington, D.C., the pastor asked the congregation to remain for a few minutes.
Then, on the instructions of Cardinal Archbishop Donald Wuerl, the pastor proceeded to read a letter.
In the letter, the Church denounced the Obama administration for ordering all Catholic schools, hospitals and social services to provide, in their health insurance coverage for employes, free contraceptives, free sterilizations and free "morning-after" pills.

Until the local Bishops take affirmative action to publicly rebuke abortion-advocating Catholics through public excommunication, I don’t care to hear their posturing.
Make no mistake: Obama wants a "state run church" of a different sort -- "Hey, you dhimmi Catholics! Let me tell you how your church is going to be run from now on ..."
But we lost the Constitution a long time ago, so I'm not sure this can be stopped through political means.
After reading the letter he added that this is a “huge deal” and will have an impact on Catholics and Christians alike for years to come. He encouraged parishioners to contact their representatives.
About half the parish clapped when he had finished. Others stood around looking confused and embarrassed.
More Liberal Jews are smelling the coffee. Maybe more Liberal Catholics will start to now.
This issue is getting bigger. Obama has clearly lost an important voter block: Catholics. So why are we running Romneycare, (Mr. ‘I won’t get rid of Obamacare’) as the GOP Candidate again? Santorum can get us Pennsylvania, an important swing state, in addition to the Catholic vote, which could be important enough to swing some close states. God will bless this country if we vote for a life affirming candidate.
Why would Patrick J. want the White House to come around so Obama won’t lose the Catholic vote?
Before Christs second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers.
The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the mystery of iniquity in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth.
The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.
So, why has a public announcement not been made that Sebelius has been excommunicated from the Catholic Church? Is such an announcement not long overdue?
There is not one commandant that the left hasn't broken,
coveting our neighbors goods,
stealing the peoples money via taxes,
putting the politic' before God, using his name in vain,
misquoting scripture just as satan did,
killing the innocents, and when I was a young girl, all stores closed on sunday (except movie theatres) and you would be hard put to even find a gas station open. Bye Bye Sabbath,
adultry is fine, porno is good, bearing false withness against republicans and political enemies is SOP. What have I missed?
Very typical. Doesn't the Catholic vote usually go 50/50 or close. Sorry Pat, Liberal ideology trumps religion. Catholics won't make a difference in this election or any other. If all Catholics were true Catholics none would vote for these commies. The churches are full of CINOs.
There ya go. Total weakness from the top down. Again all blow & no show.
My focus was here:
“...unveil the mystery of iniquity in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth...”
You may have “free healthcare”, if you don’t mind killing babies as part of the package.
“solution” “at the price of apostasy”
It’s a mixed bag, even with the clergy. We’ve had a number of young priests cycle through the parish who were willing to stand outside planned parenthood with us, participate in the marches, and give very strong pro-life homilies. But they have been tempered over the past 6 years by a pastor who is very ambitious (wants to be a bishop ambitious) and seems more interested in making everyone feel welcome in the church, keeping the member numbers up, the collections coming in, etc... He didn’t even give a homily the Sunday before the 2008 election.
I understand the church wants to keep the money coming in, and the number of members up, but I’m tired of attending mass in a huge church with a bunch of empty-headed posers.
“What have I missed?”
Uhhh - “Queer Nation” saw their ‘man’ elected to the White Hut? That cellulite Qutie Queer who runs Homeland Security, the pedophile who call the shots on educatoin, .....
God is not at the helm anymore. Where man chases God out...7 new demons take hold.
"Mussolini urged Pius to excommunicate Hitler as he thought it would render him less powerful in Catholic Austria and reduce the danger to Italy and wider Europe. The Vatican refused to comply and thereafter Mussolini began to work with Hitler, adopting his anti-semitic and race theories."
Hmmm... wonder if the Catholic Church ever did excommunicate Hitler? Overdue?
All good Christians....Stand Your Ground! Vote Santorum!
