Anti-Catholic full-page ad in the New York Times today
American Thinker ^ | 07/03/2014 | Ed Lasky

The Hobby Lobby decision has ignited liberals and unleashed their prejudice. And this ad is shameful.

The New York Times has a full-page ad in its print edition today that should elicit protests around the nation (but likely won’t).

Here is a copy from the website of the Freedom From Religious Foundation that wrote and paid for the ad http://ffrf.org/news/news-releases/item/20870-ffrf-s-full-page-ad-in-new-york-times-to-protest-hobby-lobby-ruling:

The photo of the woman at top is that of Margaret Sanger-idol of the pro-choice movement (and the founder of Planned Parenthood) who -- this has been all but erased from the panegyrics to her greatness -- was a proponent of eugenics. She was, in the words of Arina Grossu a “racist, eugenicist extraordinaire” whose role in pushing these Nazi-like laws resulted in more than 60,000 sterilizations of vulnerable people, including people she considered ‘feeble-minded”, “idiots” and “morons.” She also spoke to KKK women’s groups.

But what is worse is this line from the ad: “All-male, All-Roman Catholic Majority on Supreme Court Puts Religious Wrongs over Women’s Rights.”

If the ad read “ All Male, all Jewish....” or “All Male, all Muslim” the Times would have rejected the ad as hate.

Picture of Margaret Sanger. Nice.

Back in the 19th century, the anti-Catholics were called the Know Nothing party. I guess not much has changed.

Ironically for the NYT, the Hobby Lobby consisted of a majority of women, who used the rule of law and the constitution as the measuring stick to get this ruling. So what the NYT is really saying is, they hate the constitution, the voice of Americans and the rule of law. Such a world we live in nowadays

Abortion is the religion of the hardcore left.

Why are they picking on the Catholics?
Isn't Sotomayor a Catholic ?
She sided with the dissenters.

“Keep the Government Out of My Uterus!”

Unless, of course, the Government is stuffing money up there.

They are starting the Senate 2014 campaign and working on the 2016 Presidentials too. First, villify Republicans as the party that HATES WOMEN. Whup them up re Hobby Lobby, put out falsehoods, distort and demonize. Then, you provide the ‘savior’ - someone who stands for women’s freedom to act promiscuously, and voila’ - the sheeple will vote them in.

Just watch.

Well,as most of us know there are Catholics and then there are *Catholics*.Bella Pelosi claims to be a Catholic...as did the senior Senator from Chappaquiddick.And then there was Mother Teresa.

I think they’re saying it’s wrong NOT to kill babies. I’m pretty sure that’s what “religious wrongs” means to them. They’re saying those bigoted old Catholic men put their own religious wrongs (not rights) ahead of women’s rights (to kill their babies).

The problem is that the leaders of the Catholic Church do not throw them out of their church.....so IMHO they are aiding them.

A good response would be a full-page ad with the same picture of Sanger, quoting her.

She said all kinds of interesting things.

It’s amazing to me, that the reaction from the left has been so overwhelming.

These liberals really don’t understand what this case was all about.

The liberals, in their over-reaction about how we are headed for being a theocracy due to this case, just shows their own ignorance about the issues involved.

It shows their deepest fears, which are completely unfounded, that somehow the courts will make America into a theocracy based on a decision like this.

It shows their anti-Catholic bigotry, for them to focus on the religion of justices who didn’t vote the way they wanted them to vote.

This says a lot of unflattering things about the left, based on their reactions to this decision.

For what it's worth, the ad, in B&W and topped by that picture of an old woman in a hat, is not going to attract anyone under 70.

And 90 percent of those will drop off when they get to the word "atheists."

Which means, I guess, that all 70,000 Times subscribers will read on eagerly.

From the ad:

"Allowing employers to decide what birth control an "employee can use is not, as the Supreme Court ruled an exercise of religion". It is an exercise in tyranny.

Of course, the government mandating that an employer must pay for abortifacients is not tyranny. And since when has Hobby Lobby controlled what birth control their employers used? The delusion is staggering.
