    The Catholic Health Association is very pleased with the White House
    announcement that a resolution has been reached that protects the
    religious liberty and conscience rights of Catholic institutions. The
    framework developed has responded to the issues we identified that
    needed to be fixed.

    We are pleased and grateful that the religious liberty and conscience
    protection needs of so many ministries that serve our country were
    appreciated enough that an early resolution of this issue was
    accomplished. The unity of Catholic organizations in addressing this
    concern was a sign of its importance.

    This difference has at times been uncomfortable but it has helped our
    country sort through an issue that has been important throughout the
    history of our great democracy.

    The Catholic Health Association remains committed to working with the
    Administration and others to fully implement the Affordable Care Act
    to extend comprehensive and quality health care to many who suffer
    today from the lack of it.

    I predicted Obama would make some kind of compromise and then it would
    be 2 - 3 weeks until you didn't hear anything more about this - except
    of course from FOX and RWers.


    Other than this the momentum of
    religion's war on Obama seems to be waning:

    Wait, there's more!

    "The Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU)
    acknowledges and appreciates the compromise that President Obama has
    made to accommodate religious institutions in regard to the birth
    control mandate under the Affordable Care Act. We commend the Obama
    Administration for its willingness to work with us on moving toward a
    solution, and we look forward to working out the details of these new
    regulations with the White House. [Association of Jesuit Colleges and
    Universities, 2/10/12] "


    So who will continue making a fuss a month from now? Those who oppose
    him anyway. As stated before: It was a political mistake. He spun it. It's a wash.

    The women of America will remember who was on their side come election day.

    Be nice to have a link that works. That's dated Feb 10. I'd like to see whether they've said anything since.

    Nevermind, I found it myself. I'll wait to see what they say once they realized it's bullshit.

    I had to cut all the extraneous bullshit out to highlight that one sentence. The Jesuits admit that NOTHING is done, and the 'details' need to be worked out.

    It's ALL a bunch of Kabuki, and it's not going to end prettily for Christians.

    Of course, that's been the plan all along...

    Exactly. They released a standard statement within a couple of hours of Obama's 'accommodation' and nothing since.

    Any rational human being would be looking at the devil in the detail. The statement is nothing more than an acknowledgement.

    The OP lacks both independence and logic. In fact, he shows himself to be happy to libel the Catholic Church with an unfounded and baseless allegation about the Bishops.

    Poll: 59% of Catholics Disapprove of Obama’s Performance
    by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 2/14/12 12:28 PM

    ShareThe criticism of President Barack Obama in the Catholic community has been swift thanks to the pro-abortion mandate the president put in place forcing religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions.

    In what is the first major public measurement of the Catholic backlash Obama faces, a new Rasmussen poll finds 59 percent of Catholics don’t approve of his job performance. That poor standing with one of the major electoral constituencies that Obama needs this November may make it more difficult for him to win a second term.

    “Catholics strongly disapprove of the job President Obama is doing as the debate continues over his administration’s new policy forcing Catholic institutions to pay for contraception they morally oppose,” notes pollster Scott Rasmussen in the new survey. “While the president’s overall job approval ratings have improved over the past couple of months, they have remained steady among Catholics.”

    the rest here..
