  • Obama Administration is Anti-women
    Post by Gerri Laird, 3/18/2012

    “The ObamaCare provision for mandatory insurance coverage of contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs for women is blatant evidence that President Obama and his administration are anti-women: they consider women to be no better than animals in heat whose fertility must be regulated by the government, or as things that can be used, abused, and discarded. Every time the government interferes with our ability to function as human persons, we are closer to becoming non-persons ? things. Furthermore, the mandate pits women against men and against their own flesh and blood because it does not respect the unique power held by both men and women to pro-create a new life. In addition to protecting religious freedom for all Americans, the Catholic Church wants to protect women from becoming mere commodities whose reproductive systems are regulated by the government. (Also see ( ... ”

  • Military Tries to Silence Catholic Military Archbishop
    More Religious Liberties Oppressed by Obama Administration - Post by Bob Laird, 2/7/2012

    “In a blatant disregard for the First Amendment of the Constitution, the U.S. Army Chief of Chaplains, Chaplain (Major General) Donald L. Rutherford, a Catholic priest, issued an order forbidding any Army chaplain from reading a letter to Catholics issued by Archbishop Timothy Broglio of the Archdiocese of the Military Services. Broglio issued the letter in response to the Obama Administration's order (via the Department of Health and Human Services [HHS]) requiring all but a few religious organizations to provide sterilizations, abortifacient birth control, and contraception in all health plans. Rutherford's directive caused Broglio to contact the Secretary of the Army, John McHugh, who admitted that Rutherford was in error. Thus, the letter could be read at all Masses with the exception of one line (read on). For Broglio and his military chaplains, rendering to God was the just response in this case and not rendering to Caesar. ... ”

    Post by Patricia Pitkus Bainbridge, 1/30/2012

    “Being one of those people who typically has the TV on as "background," it was not unusual that while answering e-mail last evening, there was "noise" coming from the small set in my office. I glanced and became aware that an episode of CSI: Miami was on. I basically ignored it until I heard something (the words,┬ôsperm donor┬ö) that piqued my interest. ... ”
