“My local bishop said he told a group, `Well, you know, I told a group I’m ready to go to jail,’ and I told him, `Bishop, don’t take this personally - you need to go to jail,” Cuccinelli said, trying to balance levity with seriousness.”
Here’s what I want to know: Seems to me there are plenty of countries with socialized health care. What did the Church do in those countries like Canada and Europe? Is their system different or what? What’s the difference between the state mandating you have to pay for something that is against one’s faith and the state paying for the same thing with one’s taxes? I mean we have been funding planned parenthood for a while now.
The difference is Europe has a very long history of murdering priests. When it comes to Canada, their history is roasting and eating them.
I don't believe employers are typically involved there. One of our priests is from Ireland; he seemed to indicate that the gov't healthcare in Ireland is fairly minimal & most people buy a supplemental policy from a private insurer on their own.

It's the difference between "proximate" and "remote" material cooperation with evil. Remote cooperation is when one party does something good (paying taxes) and another party (the government) perverts that good thing to the service of evil (supporting abortion) without the approval or cooperation of the first party. Remote material cooperation can be permitted for a good reason (i.e., the government does good things with tax money as well).
Cooperating with the Obama death mandate is proximate material cooperation with evil and not permissible.
