Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Wednesday that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was waging war on the Catholic Churchan apparent reference to the Obamacare regulation she finalized earlier this year that requires nearly all health-care plans to offer sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortion-inducing drugs free of charge.
This secretary of HHS is a radical. She is waging war on the Catholic Church. Shes adopted radical positions on a range of issues, Gingrich said during a conference call on Wednesday.
In its lawsuit against the HHS and Sebelius, the Archdiocese of New York cited similar comments made by Sebelius herself at a NARAL fundraising event. According to the lawsuit, Sebelius told NARAL "we are in a war with institutions that, like the Catholic Church, believe both abortion and contraception are wrong.

A war that she will lose badly.
GO NEWT GO! Newt tells it like it is.
The questions is... do most Catholics even care?
I can safely say the problem with Catholics is Catholics... and Protestants is Protestants far too many long ago fired Jehovah God and hired Karl Marx. To put our faith in denominations is folly. We put our faith in Christ Jesus and the uncompromised Word if the Holy Bible or we waste our time (and lives).
View this awesome ad by the Catholic Church.
Like her dad, she is an arrogant jerk.
Call it what it is, the “Obama Kulturkampf.”
She’s had a big chip on her shoulder ever since she was denied communion in Kansas and could no longer get away with “life-long-Catholic.” She ran errands for the Kansas Trial Lawyers Assoc. until the Tiller industry started funding her political career.
Almost every one of her Kansas Republican go-fers was finally run out of office last night.
And why has her bishop not publicly excommunicated her? These mealy-mouthed excuses for bishops resort to “automatic excommunication” so that they don’t have to take any action.
A public excommunication, with attendant punishment (sackcloth and ashes, hairshirts, etc.)might, just might, shut up Biden, Pelosi and the rest of the heretics.
Did you see that post. She HAS been excommunicated by her Kansas Bishop.
I posted the following (edited) on another thread:
Sebelius, while governor of Kansas, was barred from Holy Communion by her bishop (Archbishop Joseph Naumann) in 2008. She was not excommunicated. Bishops in the Washington DC area declared their intention to honor Bp. Naumanns directive.
But now that she no longer resides in Kansas, she does not answer to Naumann. I dont know if she now is able to receive Communion or if the local bishops still honor Naumanns directive.
p.s. Your link is to this thread.
The point is not denying her Communion because she’ll just go elsewhere and some priest will give her Communion. The point is a public excommunication is exactly that, public.
Her bishop reads the excommunication from the pulpit and denounces her heresy and her as a heretic, by name. There is also a statement that anyone who harbors or assists her in her heresy is also a heretic, meriting the same punishment.
To post 9 specifically.
But then you'd be hard pressed to find any Catholic bishop who could actually pull something like this off these days.
An ecclesiastical censure by which one is more or less excluded from communion with the faithful. It is also called anathema, especially if it is inflicted with formal solemnities on persons notoriously obstinate to reconciliation. Some excommunicated persons are vitandi (to be avoided), others tolerati (tolerate). No one is vitandus unless that person has been publicly excommunicated by name by the Holy See, and it is expressly stated that the person is "to be avoided," Anyone who lays violent hands on the Pope is automatically vitandus.
In general, the effects of excommunication affect the person's right to receive the sacraments, or Christian burial, until the individual repents and is reconciled with the Church. In order for an excommunication to take effect, the person must have been objectively guilty of the crime charged. (Etym. Latin ex-, from + communicare, to communicate: excommunicatio, exclusion from a community.)
This ad, as awesome as it is, is not by the Catholic Church.
It’s by a private group:
Catholics Called to Witness.
“Inspiring Catholics to live their Faith.”
Great ad, I have sent this to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.
Perhaps it’s time to send to parishes and bishops.
Thank for the correction. It was sent in my email as being from the Catholic Church.
I have sent this out to my email friends, and posted here so other may spread the word. Very powerful ad.
