    Great homily by a great priest today in our parish.

    Topic was Liberal Catholics and Conservative Catholics. And why there is neither.

    Got a reminder – none of the saints were either Liberal or Conservative. And CNN, MSNBC, John Kerry and Nancy Pelosi are no experts in defining a Catholic.

    Only the church is.

    All these pro-choice, contraceptive, same-sex Liberal "cafeteria" Catholics – you’re gonna burn in hell, unless you get to confession, stat.

    King Obama – you will be remembered in the confessional, and in the election booth by Catholics and Christians nationwide coming up soon.

    Maybe the Atheists and Muslims will give you a little boost.

    We're not.

    Remember, the RCC is anti-war and anti-death penalty. Do you get on those "cafeteria" lines, too?

    Hence, the Catholic Church runs hospitals.

    But, we still won't be paying birth control, sterilizations or abortions. Got that? Good.

    As long as people can get insurance, nobody's going to force them to provide those services.

    Insurance is a non-factor. They can't be forced regardless.

    Obama could have forced them to but he didn't want to get suckered into a fight so he just bipassed them and has the insurance company providing it directly. But whenever law and religion butt heads, law wins every time.

    Did Mohammad Ali get in trouble for not going to Viet Nam?

    Can Mormons have two wives?

    Can a scientologist employer refuse to pay for medications that they don't approve of? Of course not. But if they were a large enough voting block, I'm sure the GOP would try to make this an issue to win over GOP votes.

    Are there that many conservative Catholics left anymore? Haven't most of them died of old age by now? I'm assuming a lot of young Catholics that have sex before marriage, which is all of them, are not siding with the Catholic Church. They use birth control.

    And are there even that many Catholics in America anymore? Besides the Hispanic ones becaues the GOP have lost their votes for sure. I mean white Catholics. Because I thought a lot of people left the church after it was discovered that Bishops were raping little boys and the Pope covered it up?

    I think there's an equal protection question here. I don't think their employees should be forced to accept a lesser position than people employed elsewhere. No one would be providing anyone anything but an option. That hardline a position can't stand, IMO.
