Catholic Crisis

I am angry.

The rightful defense of our First Amendment rights has been spun into a battle over birth control. It is not. I refuse to let the spin doctors redefine the issue.

The Roman Catholic Church is guaranteed freedom of religion. The government has no business ordering them or any church to give birth control or abortions. I don’t care if there are Catholics who ignore the church’s teachings. I don’t care if Pelosi appoints herself Pope. This is not only wrong, it is evil.

If a Catholic woman, employed by the church, wishes to receive birth control or even an abortion, there are plenty of avenues by which that can happen. Even if there were no avenues, it is a direct violation of our rights for the government to dictate that the Catholic Church throw out their beliefs to comply with a liberal agenda. Funny how they say Christians are out to cram their beliefs down everyone’s throats. They are the ones doing that.

They would never order a Muslim organization to serve bacon, even government supplied bacon, to whomever might want it. A huge number of Americans like bacon. Bacon is easy to get. Shouldn’t Muslims be allowed access to bacon? So because Muslims have the right to not serve bacon does it follow that somehow their resistance to bacon will result in bacon being outlawed?

Absolute stupidity!

Enter into this, courtesy of the DNC who clearly went to the Michael Moore school of propaganda, “The GOP is out to take away birth control!”.

Rick Santorum said he opposes birth control as a matter of faith, but has voted in support of birth control. The man can separate his personal convictions from his role as Senator or President, but because of his beliefs somehow birth control is supposed to be outlawed. Absolute rubbish! Is Jeremiah White making policy in the White House? Did we become a papal state under Kennedy? Will Romney surrender our nation to the LDS prophet?

As we have surrendered the Bible in favor of “The Prince”, it is no surprise we find ourselves in this Machiavellian nightmare. As Judeo-Christian ethics are pushed aside in favor of the new ethos we will move deeper and deeper into this crisis of tyranny. We traded steak for cardboard burgers, and ridicule the steak eaters. We have lost far more than we have gained.

Here we stand, with the First Amendment directly under attack. If the argument is redefined we lose. The Constitution is the protector of the people against tyranny. It is only as strong as our willingness to defend it. Given the ease with which the issues are redefined by sleight of hand I suspect that our willingness is lost. The blue pill is easier, but that doesn’t make it right.

Demand more! Expect more!

And as someone once said, “Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of the day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers too plainly proves a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery.” (Thomas Jefferson)
