    Remember when Evangelicals called the Catholic Church, "The Great Whore" and the Pope was the "Anti Christ"?

    Suddenly there is all this support for the Catholic Church.

    On Morning Joe, the women at the table agreed with Obama, the men with the Catholic Church. No surprise since the church is run completely by men.

    During the last Presidential election, the right explained how Viagra should be "free" because a lack of boner is a "medical condition" and birth control is a "lifestyle choice".

    This is a controversy that just won't go away. Obama will have to change his strategy. Probably something like, "If you work at a Catholic institution, then you are eligible for a medical voucher". When a poor woman is standing in the servers line at the Catholic hospital making minimum wage slopping slop, then it's unfair to insist she pay $600.00 to $1,200.00 a year for birth control

    For the right to say, "Well, if she is having sex then she's a slut and should stop" screw you. Who are you to tell people what is moral? You applaud executions. I watched a "full house" at the Republican Presidential Debate applaud "en mass".

    I think that there's always been that Jack Chic fringe that thinks that about the Catholic Church.

    But most evangelicals I've met don't think that about Catholics.

    I remember when many Protestants did, actually.

    Most of them have grown up since then, but there's always going to be holdouts.

    Hell folks I remember when in order to get into the NAZI movement or the KLAN you had to be a WASP, too.

    But now those movements have become more liberal, now that they realize that they're going to need more WHITE RACISTS than the WASPS can [provide for them,

    Boy, does THAT crack me up.

    There is no more or less support for the Catholic church than there ever was. The govenment just violated the rights of Catholics and Evangelicals alike.

    The government should not be backing "Faith based initiatives" in the first place.

    That is pure BS. It was the left and unions that were pushing for coverage of viagra claiming it was a matter of good health. They used this to push for coverage of contrceptive. Conservative believe people shoud pay for their own viagra and such.

    The woman could always make her partner wear a condom.

    What is worse. Applauding the execution of a scumbag murderer or applauding the senseless slaughter of millions of unborn children?

    Why not?

    Frankly, you want to work within the community. The churches know who is really deserving, and who is scamming the system. If the purpose is to give people a hand up, not a hand out, if the purpose is for a safety net and not a hammock, then you want community pressure on people.

    I think the Democratic goal is to make as many people dependent on government as possible. And the GOP unwittingly plays into their hands.

    If you take money from the government then you play by the governments rules.
