    AHA!

    Contrary to what the r-wing talking-heads and media will have you believe... Catholics overall, and especially Catholic women side with President Obama on this issue. I knew it! :clap2:








    Catholics want birth control coverage: New surveys

    Pundits and bishops warn President Obama he could lose the white Catholic vote over requiring a contraception option for insurance plans. But Catholic women side with Obama on this, a new survey says.

    The pivot point is how you see this. Is it a battle over birth control -- used by 98% of U.S. women at some time in their lives -- or over government intrusion into the right of religious organizations to live by their teachings?

    The Catholic bishops, backed by conservative evangelicals, say the federal government should not include contraception coverage as part of free preventive care options in employers' health insurance plans.

    Hence the showdown: As our editorial Monday says, religious liberties fight or, as Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says, a free choice issue.

    And here's where the Catholic women come in. According to the Public Religion Research Institute poll released today,

    A majority (55%) of Americans agree that "employers should be required to provide their employees with health care plans that cover contraception and birth control at no cost." Four-in-ten (40%) disagree with this requirement.

    I don't have a problem with birth control, as long as the definition of "birth control" does NOT include INFANTICIDE.

    The Catholics have always been HYPOCRITES anyway. Gambling and womanizing and all other vices are OK with the catholics, as long as you attend your local parrish regularly, and go to the confessional to get your "hail marys" and absolution.

    So what exactly is your point, "kidrocks"? You seem so "tickled" with this survey. You must be a Catholic.

    How convenient. The left hate the First Amendment. Obama hates the Constitution.

    Of course you will because you hate freedom of choice, blacks, and America by association.

    So being against murdering black babies for convenience is an indication of hatred toward blacks, liberty, and America?

    Congratulations! That's the dumbest post today. Of course, the day is young.
