NMA: Obama vs. the Catholic Church
Posted by admin on Wednesday, February 8, 2012
President Barack Obama has upset Catholics. He wants Catholic groups to pay for contraceptives and abortions as part of employee healthcare.
Catholic and other religious leaders see this as an attack on First Amendment freedoms.
Obama in 2009 had promised Catholics a “conscience clause.”
What is Obama thinking? Obama won the Catholic vote in 2008, and Catholics are a huge force in swing states in 2012.
Does Obama thinks his pro-choice allies will overpower the Catholic Church, or has he made a massive political miscalculation?
Rightardia thinks the Catholic Church is upset, but suspects most Catholic women are pleased by the ruling. Most cathodic women practice birth control regardless of the Roman Catholic church's position on that subject.
