Voris: Obama Able to Neutralize Catholic Resistance Thanks to Bishops’ Past Complicity
Life Site News ^ | 2/15/12 | Steve Jalsevac

Catholic video commentator Michael Voris is known for not wasting any time or words in getting right to the point. This is especially notable in his Feb. 14 video report: Obama’s Gamble, in which, from my own experiences of the past four decades, Voris appears to be right on the mark.

Voris starts by noting that Obama’s current health care contraceptive mandate is part of his “long term gamble that is well calculated.” Using this latest strategy, Voris says, the President, “is going all out in finally, once and for all, neutralizing Catholic resistance to him” and “initially his gamble is paying off.”

It’s paying off because polling shows that the majority of Catholics support Obama on this issue. Says, Voris, “After squandering their authority over the past 40 years by laying in bed with the party of death they (the bishops) are now paying the price.”

Voris also addresses the bishops’ “pathetic” Faithful Citizenship document which was re-released a few months ago. In it, he says, “the garble of language and competing ambiguous principles essentially says nothing and claims nothing as being an absolute disqualifier for holding public office.”

I have to agree wholeheartedly with Voris on this one. As a Catholic myself it has been a personal shame, a terrible embarrassment, to see bishops’ conferences, both in the US and Canada, during every election, publishing essentially useless, confusing guidelines for Catholic voters.

They strut these and other bureaucratic, spineless, election-related creations about as though they are really important, while anyone with an ounce of honesty and common sense sees they are a clear case of “the Emperor has no clothes”. They are empty of practical value and therefore most North American Catholics naturally don’t vote as they should.

Unlike us, rat supporting groups never form circular firing squads.

They never give up their leftward push. They build on their successes by any means available; when they suffer a setback they shake it off and press onward. They never say, “we were wrong then, so it would hypocritical to be correct today.”

I don’t care if the bishops were wrong in the past. To fight encroaching slavery under the guise of Leftist social justice is the right thing to do NOW!

Let wait and see what happens when a newly ordained Cardinal with quite a gift for communication comes back from Rome next week...I would venture to guess that some of his prayers and reflection in preparation for his Ordination has revolved around asking God for strength in this upcoming battle.

This ain’t over yet... :)

I agree. a new leadership of the conference is emerging, and they are having to drag the liberal laggards along with them, those who were and still are blind to the way they have been used.
