Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments as follows:
June 21 marks the beginning of the Fortnight for Freedom events, the campaign for religious liberty being conducted by the nations bishops. Fair-minded persons may disagree with this effort, but there is something unseemly going on when those who work for a George Soros-funded group are quietly providing talking points to the media.
John Gehring is an official at Faith in Public Life, and it is his organization that lives off the bounty of the left-wing atheist billionaire, Mr. Soros. On June 7, Gehring sent a memo to his buddies in the media (a copy of which was generously leaked to meclick here) instructing them on how to handle the bishops. They should begin by questioning the prelates why the Obama accommodation wasnt good enough. You have to ask why the bishops cant take yes for an answer, he wrote.
Teaching them how to handle the war on the Catholic Church, Gehring advises, Several bishops have used inflammatory and irresponsible rhetoric that conflates a process of working through complex policy issues with a fundamental attack on the Catholic Church. He also frets over the politicization of the religious liberty campaign, an effort made possible, he neglects to say, because of the politicization of religion by President Obama.
Not to be outdone, Gehring presses his lackeys to victimize the victim, beckoning them to ask the bishopsall of whom refuse to prostitute their principlesAre you willing to sacrifice Catholic charities, colleges and hospitals if you dont get your way on the contraceptive mandate?
Finally, Gehring provides a go-to list of Catholic activists who can be counted on to subvert the bishops message. Its what we would expect from a George Soros group.
Thx for posting. Gehring’s email reads like marching orders.
Oh, it is.
Given recent unfortunate findings, arrests and lawsuits, this was probably not the best of all possible title choices for the article.
Make it personal: "your way"?
I smell Alinsky.
Which murder would the attackers say was okay?
WHich baby is it all right to slaughter in the alleged safety of their mother's womb?
And why would they insist for other people to pay for the slaughterers to murder those children?
Although I'd like to see the barbaric practice ended, I'd be damned if I paid for it.
NO MAN, (nor woman), and for that matter, no Government (created and endowed with power for the purpose of protecting among others the Right for me to worship as I choose) has the Right to tell me I will be an accessory to the premeditated murder of such innocents.
Do not try to stand between me and God.
