When Sandra Fluke went to Capitol Hill to whine that she couldn’t get free contraception, the mainstream media was gaga! Why, then, is there nothing on the nightly news about the Catholic Church suing the Obama administration about the birth-control mandate?
Let’s put this into perspective. Fluke can afford to go to Georgetown (I couldn’t) but she can’t afford to ride the Metro to a family planning clinic? That’s big news? And, of course, when that crazy right-wing nut job, Limbaugh tried to point out the absurdity of the scenario, mainstream media (ABC, CBS, NBC) gave it seemingly hours of coverage.
Now, the Catholic church has sued the Obama administration, not because contraception is the core issue, but because the Obama administration is trying to violate the First Amendment by proclaiming what is and what is not proper exercise of religious freedom. ABC and NBC didn’t say a single word on the nightly news and CBS gave it only 19 seconds! This fact was presented on Fox News by Juliette Huddy the morning of 5/28/2012, in a debate featuring Kirsten Powers.
The “Church” itself is exempt from the mandate in Obamacare that they must provide contraceptive and abortion services because they only minister to their own believers. But, Catholic charities, hospitals, schools, archdiocese, etc. must provide those services because they serve people who are other than Catholics. Oops! Wait a minute! Here’s a compromise…we won’t make YOU provide this coverage, but your insurance company must provide it. What’s that? You’re self-insured! Sorry. Then you have to do it. Your insurance company is going to raise your premiums to cover the cost? So sorry, again.
Every single vote will count this year. Don’t vote on an issue if you don’t understand it. It’s your duty to be informed voters and keep our country strong and safe. Don’t trust ABC, CBS or NBC.

I am a 72 year old cradle Catholic with 16 years of Catholic education, and I have a question. Why do so many Catholics vote Democrat or liberal?
President Obama’s administration is trying to pass a new round of federal handouts for abortion providers. The Senate, under the guidance of Harry Reid, is preparing a spending bill that would force us to subsidize an increasing number of abortions at home and abroad. It also repeals the ban on elective abortions in the Federal Employees Health Benefits. Meanwhile Planned Parenthood celebrates with the opening of the third largest abortion mega-mart in Minnesota.
There is now an anti-life mandate that forces private insurance plans to cover drugs and devices with life ending actions. Most religiously affiliated organizations-hospitals, schools and charitable organizations would not be protected under the inadequate conscience clause.
Early in December, 2011, the Obama administration concocted the “Global Equality Fund” that will pay for human rights groups to advance the interest of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons. The fund is starting with $3million seed money from American taxpayers. We now offer preferential asylum to LGBT people forced to flee their home countries, whether they request it or not.
Christian (Catholic) chaplains have been court martialed, forced out of the U.S. military, stripped of their pensions, and even had health benefits cancelled for the crime of praying with their troops “in Jesus‘ name.”.
The Defense of Marriage Act has been attacked by Holder’s Department of Justice as an act of bias and bigotry.
A vote is a treasure. Please, vote this November for our faith and freedom.

I am also pleased to announce that we are launching a new Global Equality Fund that will support the work of civil society organizations working on these issues around the world. This fund will help them record facts so they can target their advocacy, learn how to use the law as a tool, manage their budgets, train their staffs, and forge partnerships with women’s organizations and other human rights groups. We have committed more than $3 million to start this fund, and we have hope that others will join us in supporting it.
Obama administration labels Catholic Charities as “bigoted”, banned from providing help with adoptions and fighting human trafficking.
