Skip to comments.Contraception ruling: Democrats accuse clergy of complicity with GOP at hearing
Posted on 02/21/2012 6:16:25 PM PST by prairiebreeze
"I believe today's hearing is a sham," said Rep. Gerald Connolly, D-Va., of the first of two session held by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee during the day. His tone sharp and finger pointed, Connolly went on to declare the witnesses -- who included a Catholic bishop, a Lutheran reverend, an Orthodox rabbi, and two Baptist theologians, all opposed to the administration's recent ruling -- "complicit" in the Republicans' "trampling" of House traditions that would, if observed, have produced a more balanced panel.
"You are being used for a political agenda," Connolly told the holy men, after Republicans brandished images of President Kennedy and others to buttress their points. "This is a panel designed -- with your conscious participation or not -- to try, one more time, to embarrass the president of the United States and his administration, by overstating an issue which is sacred to all Americans: religious freedom. But of course, in order to do it, we have to, in an almost Stalinist-like fashion, have signs of Democratic icons to rub Democratic faces in it, as if those icons would be on the same side of this dispute today."

Just more of Canoli’s CR*P. He represents this district and he’s a Fascist Pig. So’s his old lady.
Does Connolly just hate babies in the womb—like Bath-House Barry?....On the other hand, he seems to LOVE terrorists because he’s ready to raise funds for them, right?
Why Doesn’t Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) Come Clean about the Dar Al-Hijrah Fundraiser?
snipLast week we reported that seven Virginia elected officials were invited to the Saturday April 3 Annual Fundraising dinner at the terrorist-linked Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center.
Like a lot of people who call themselves Catholic, JFK may have chosen personally to disregard Catholic teaching on birth control, but he definitely would not have gone against the Church on this one. Obama misunderstood which way the wind was blowing on this one. Now he's painted himself into a corner.
“You are being used for a political agenda,” Connolly told the holy men’
Like when Obama “uses” pro-abortion, self described Catholic HHS Sebelius to push his pro-abortion platform ?
Or how the evil hypocrite in Chief recruits a pro-abortion Catholic to be the ambassador to the Vatican?
Or how the pig who calls herself the Senate minority leader and claims to be Catholic, thinks that she knows better than her Catholic Bishops on issues of morality and misleads millions through her publicly stated lies.
Now then, just who is exploiting useful idiots to undermine our religious institutions for no other purpose that to divide and conquer his political enemies?
Look into your own party’s mirror, Connally, you effing jackass and mental midget.
o try, one more time, to embarrass the president of the United States and his administration, by overstating an issue which is sacred to all Americans: religious freedom.
No sir. Mr Obama is the embarrassment to all people of faith.
His ass kissing of the muslim enemies of America and his many attacks on Christians and our morals make him that embarrassment
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
We are not losing on this issue when the democrats are making ridiculous statements like this. #winning
I’m not sure he misunderstood, I think it may have been a calculated move at creating more division in the nation, but if Obama was a Christian in the first place, he wouldn’t have.
And if a female clergy had been put on that panel like the dhimmicrats claim to object to, one can only imagine the excoriation, scrutiny and public ridicule she would be up against.
I was going to say the the Democrat Party is the party of Satan. I am dead serious about that.
Please add Connally’s name to that list of CINOs.

Follow up ping.
Correct on every count.
This is not a fight over birth control. This is not simply a Catholic Fight.
Obozo has declared war on Christians, Jews and some other faiths. We are all in this and this is for keeps. Future of our nation and our families lie in the outcome of this election.
Now is the time to remove this cancer that is destroying our culture, morals and freedom.
This is a direct assault to the Religious freedom granted by God and written in the First Amendment of our Constitution.
Obozo is a Traitorous Liar.
It is TIME.
These people are leftwing tyrants
Agree. Connelly is a fascist from Fascist Fairfax. He ran the place like the Gestapo.
At least he has stayed true to form. However, now the American public pays his salary. Wonder if he takes it in Deutch Marks?
Seigy Heil, you fascist bastard. Do America a favor, will ya, Jerry? Drop dead and the sooner, the better for all.
This Idiot would have been our CongressCritter if we hadn’t escaped to Arizona!
...walk into a bar.
Gerald Connolly, D-Va. Thanks prairiebreeze.
Heard a few libs at work talking this way last week. Seems to be the new “truth point”.
There is a danger of the Church getting to involved in politics. The LCMS, while very conservative, has been very careful not to play in the realm of the left hand to much. Main reason is that most politicians will sell you out in a heartbeat.
However this isn’t about politics. If the State can tell the Catholics you MUST be complicit in a mortal sin (which chemical contraception is considered), then what else can you tell them? You must marry gays?
Make no mistake, this isn’t about pills.
Once again proving there is no depth to which Democrats won’t stoop, no trick they won’t use, no moral standing they won’t trample, no individual worthy of respect they won’t torch, in an effort to rule the day.
Continually they remind me of the thirteen year old caught stealing something red handed, who none the less tries to blame their nine year old sister.
They are contemptible on so many levels.
And we can accurately accuse the media of complicity with Democrats in this matter.
Look, Congresscritter, the GOP did not invent this issue. Your own DHHS secretary thrust this upon us with no prompting from the GOP or the Catholics. That there is a joint and similar reaction is not a sign of political collusion, you dumb schmuck. It is a sign that your party has done something stupid. Seriously, are you that much of an idiot?
On a slightly different topic, I see this move by Obama as desperation - he doesn’t even have his base shored up, so he resorts to such foolishness during an election year.
You, sir, are correct as can be.
So therefore, religious freedom is a conspiracy to embarrass the President, who is himself the most complicit in this conspiracy by reason of his deliberate trampling of religious freedom. Aesop’s fable about the donkey and the lion skin comes to mind.
Democratic icons ??? Kennedy ? Didn’t I just read where this icon was nailing a 19 yr old in His wife’s house? Didn’t I also read the icon was giving drugs to this 19 yr old ? and that the icon had this 19 yr old service his buddy at the pool?
This is akin to calling the drunk Ed Schultz a good guy after hearing that He punched out His wife, and shot His dog.
I am in awe of the depravity of human beings insofar as their ability to rationalize away the murder of children, the attacks on God, the disarmament of the nation, and the theft of their freedom, all in exchange for the “christian greater good”, as they see it, of food, jobs, various forms of creature comfort securities.
The play various “goods” against “evils” and believe they counter-balance.
The goal is to keep ALL of the instructions of God. That is the pathway to good. Any deviation of any kind is way to destruction. Any deviation requires repentance and an acceptance that it is evil and contrary to God’s will.
Here ya go:
An illegal alien, a muslim and a communist go into a bar.
The bartender asks:
"What can I get you, Mr. President?"
By making Santorum and Newt defend their faith, the media spin machine can attack them at will without having to report on anything else. Make no mistake, this has (for now) given Obama the female vote.
Have you read Ameritopia yet, Pastor? You would appreciate it very much.
I haven’t Albion, but I’ve seen it at the bookstore. I’ll probably pick it up next time. Thanks.
John, I *swear* I had to read this three times to make sure this didn’t have your byline on it. The line between news and satire grows thinner every day.
