A Letter to the Suddenly Awakened Catholic Bishops

There were perhaps seven or eight Catholic Bishops who spoke out against ObozoCare before it was enacted.  (See references here.)

The rest of them?  Pretty quiet about it. 

So now they figured out that they were pretty stupid in their quietness.

One Atlanta Catholic has a few things to say....

....In 2009 and 2010, nominally faithful Catholics who value all of the policy choices you do — labor unions, forced charity, high rates of taxation, urban ghettoes, and of course, universal “health care” — and who claimed to be ardent defenders of the unborn sold out to a one, sacrificed millions of babies and betrayed the infallible teaching of their faith so they could get one gigantic step closer to the social justice you so crave.

And for that, for that moment when they put aside their baptismal and confirmation vows, repeated every Easter, and their recitation of whatever version of the Nicene Creed you’ve settled on this week, your response was … applause. Silence. Satisfaction. A professed willingness to work with the Administration.

Umnnnhhhh....yes, indeed.

I would like to see if the 20% that have not spoken out
on the mandate this time are the same ones who said nothing when Obama was elected. This is the Bishops TARP moment. Their defining moment.
We need to watch this very carefully.

It wouldn't be the catholic church if they weren't denying women their God given rights.

USCCB doesn't represent the common man or common sense.
