FOCA's Little Sister

The O-and-Savior is moving quickly toward very dangerous waters.

"On Friday afternoon, February 27, the Obama Administration placed on a federal website the news that it intends to remove a conscience protection rule for the Department of Health and Human Services. That rule is one part of the range of legal protections for health care workers—for doctors, nurses and others—who have objections in conscience to being involved in abortion and other killing procedures that are against how they live their faith in God.

"As Catholic bishops and American citizens, we are deeply concerned that such an action on the government’s part would be the first step in moving our country from democracy to despotism."

Cardinal George is facile with English--and the term is chosen carefully.

Well, I have to agree with him. Obama has lost any good will from me, and I have nothing but contempt for his congressional lapdogs. We are well and truly screwed.
