I'm glad to see all religious people hanging together on this issue.

However, I would like to point out that if it were a non-Catholic religion in the government's sites, it is not at all certain that Catholics would be standing in solidarity with their "brethren." Catholic dioceses have been petting the ACLU snake for decades with regard to "creation science" with scant regard to the consciences of people who object to evolution on religious grounds. Now the snake has bitten them.

Let us hope the lesson has been learned.

Wow, you can shoehorn your ridiculous assertions into any issue, can’t you?

By the way, why is this a “Catholic” issue? This isn’t Protestants and Jews sticking up for Catholics’ rights. Rather, what’s happened is that the Catholic Church has been most demonstrative in denouncing Obama’s plan, and getting all the headlines, and Protestants and Jews are piping up to say, “It’s not just Catholics; we’re all equally threatened by this.

(And no, I don’t mean to make it sound like Catholics have been “better on this issue.” The fact that they grabbed the headlines is a result of the fact that, sadly, because they are seen more as swing voters.)
