In a letter read at all Masses on the Second Sunday of Lent, Bishop Gerald Barnes of San Bernardino urged the faithful of his diocese to sign up for health insurance.

I want the same Health Insurance the Bishop has at the same price he pays.
Sorry Bishop, but you know not what you speak of. The ACA is an abomination.
yes the good Catholics should get on the obamacare train
since abortion and birth control are now mandatory coverage!
What place does this have in the role of a Catholic Bishop?
“Bishop Gerald Barnes of San Bernardino urged the faithful of his diocese to sign up for health insurance.”
Give me the book, chapter, and verse for that, Bishop.
If it comes from Mao’s Little Red Book, I’m not interested.
The gov’t needs to GET OUT of the church and THIS bisop needs to STFU!!
Reason is that I won’t have anything to do with the catholic Church except education.
Ask the gov to stay out of religion YET publicly shoots his mouth off about this “O’Care” travesty!!
The US Catholic bishops have been at the forefront of the push for amnesty and socialized medicine. I guess that’s what comes of never having earned an honest dollar in your entire life.
Parishioner: But that means I won't have enough money to tithe.
Bishop: Well, maybe the Lord doesn't want you to have health insurance that badly after all . . . . . .
Commies ‘n Queers now endorsed by Bishops.
We are not amused.
I can’t respect a “bishop” who pimps for Obama. Pimping communism is not his job.
I've only been to San Bernardino a couple times so maybe something has changed, but if not, I wonder how often this same Bishop tells the faithful to turn themselves in to the INS because they're obligated to follow the civil law.
Sounds like a Cafeteria Bishop to me.
“Give me the book, chapter, and verse for that, Bishop.”
Really; Jesus could have used the Good Samaritan parable to push universal health insurance, and He didn’t. As an omniscient God, He knew that 2000 years later would be discussed on the ohter side of the Atlantic Ocean, and He still didn’t endorse universal health insurance...
During the Spanish Civil War, a dozen bishops, nearly eight thousand priests, and many religious Sisters were executed by the communists between 1936 and 1939. Most were offered their lives if they would give up their faith, and there is no recorded instance of any accepting the offer. I believe the Catholic Church is the true Faith; it has some very imperfect representatives. We’ve fallen very far from the time when eleven of Christ’s apostles (our first priests) accepted martyrdom for their faith.
Cardinal O’Malley refers to those who disagree with his stance on amnesty as xenophobic. I highly suspect that he and Bishop Barnes are on the same sheet of music - dancing with the democrats.
Judas was also in their midst.
Hey Bishop....you are advertising for ABORTIONS and CONTRACEPTIVES!!! Plus “Do NOT take the Lord’s Name in Vain” comes to mind.
