Santorum Calls Out the Bishops

Rick Santorum is a two-fisted kinda guy--which is why GWB's machine preferred Specter.

(That worked out real well, eh?)

Oh, well. Santorum reminds us all why QueenNancy and her Bloody Court Jesters think they can ram through the Abortion-Enablement act:

...Santorum added that it shouldn’t be a surprise that so many Catholic politicians ignore what the Church is saying. He said that for too long dissent from the teaching of the Church was ignored by bishops. “You have examples from the Kennedy’s on down. The Kennedys and the Cuomos. It was made clear that you can dissent from the Church and still be a Catholic in good standing” he said. “For a long time many bishops in country didn’t say too much about it.”

Like the silence over Dave Obey, which was FINALLY broken by the Bishop of LaCrosse only about 5-6 years ago? Or the silence of Abp. Dolan regarding the "Plan B" abortifacient law passed in Wisconsin only 2 years ago? Or Rembert Weakland's kissy-wussy approach to any LeftOWacko pol?

Be still, my heart.

Santorum's not done yet.

...“I am appalled at the Catholic bishops,” said Santorum. “I commend them for drawing a line in the sand on abortion. But what they’ve suggested would do more damage than the abortion coverage.”

The USCCB has made strong statements against the healthcare bills because of the inclusion of abortion funding but have stated often that they would be in favor of the bill if that were excluded.

Santorum said socialized medicine would lead to "defacto euthanasia."

“This would be a foundational change in America's history that puts the government in control of people’s lives,” he warned.

The USCCB is as internally dysfunctional as is the (D) party. There are Lefties and there are HARD Lefties in that byzantine bureaucracy. So, while a couple of Actually Catholic Bishops mention "subsidiarity"--which automatically removes the Feds from healthcare--and also mention that taking the US into bankruptcy will not assure long-term health of anyone--and that the ruination of Medicare/Medicaid AND private insurance companies is the planned and certain result of ObamaCare--

........others in USCCB twiddle their thumbs, fret, do their Enneagrams, walk their labrynths, and are as useful as church mice.

Good for droppings, not much else.

Santorum is saying what many of us are thinking.

Sanitorium is a nut case. He ought to join the priesthood and clear his conscience.

Weren't the Mafia "good" Christians???

Mafia members always got Catholic funerals as the priests depended on their stolen money. It's the age old story for the Church, from indulgences to annulment. If you have the coin, the priest has time for you.

Praise the good Lord for the Reformation!

So, Anonymous...how do you explain televangelists, then?


Keep your bigotry to yourself, COWARD.

Sorry, Dave, but I don't caucus with the "put your hand on the television set and feel the HEALING power" either. I caucus with Martin Luther's religious descendants.

that's about par for a member/patient of the ECLA

A proud member of ELCA. Again, God Bless Martin Luther, who saved me!

Dave said...

The ELCA: which, along with the Episcopalians, has clergy who endorse lowering the age of sexual consent! And then, since most ELCA congregations don't have a school, you send what children you might have to public schools, where they're more likely to be molested. But it's only bad if a tiny percentage of Catholic priests do that...

Pitiful how people pit religions against one another. God loves us all!

You're cool with Dad's anonymous bigotty though, right?

Looks to me as though the LeftOHate crowd crawled out from under their Moms' skirts again......

Charles Booth said...

You realize that nobody on your site spews more hatred than you, right? I know you know this. And it is all because you deny and suppress your desires to have a huge cock in your mouth. Closet case.

Charles Booth:

1) I invite you to contemplate Dad29's handle (BTW, a good number of us know who he is). He's "Dad to nine". Hardly a closet case.

2) The normal standard of behavior in a combox forum is to behave like you're in the host's living room. Be glad this is a virtual forum, because if this was real life, you'd be in an ambulance about now...
