USCCB Declares War on ObamaCare

Well, well. From the USCCB in Washington, this went out today to EVERY Diocese/Archdiocese in the US.

...Attached, please find an Urgent Memorandum highlighting USCCB plans and requests for diocesan and parish based activation on health care reform.The President of the Conference and the Chairmen of the three major USCCB committees engaged in health care reform have written all the bishops and asked that the attached USCCB Nationwide Bulletin Insert on health care reform be printed or hand-stuffed in every parish bulletin and/or distributed in pews or at church entrances as soon as possible.

Congressional votes may take place as soon as early November.
If your Arch/bishop is not in agreement with disseminating the bulletin insert, you will be hearing from his office immediately.

So what does the flyer say?

Here's the operative language:

The U.S. bishops’ conference has concluded that all committee approved bills are seriously deficient on the issues of abortion and conscience, and do not provide adequate access to health care for immigrants and the poor. The bills will have to change or the bishops have pledged to oppose them...

I'll be watching for it in our parish bulletin this Sunday. But I doubt it will come up in the Homily - especially if the assisting priest (retired former pastor) is the celebrant.

Most Sundays his homilies consist of 'Democrat talking-points' delivered in politically-correct, gender-free constructions...
