Carol Marin Doesn’t Understand Much About Catholicism or Religious Liberty

Carol Marin 25 November 2009 One Comment

Barack Obama, the unapologetic pro-choice presidential candidate, needs to find his strong voice again on the issue now that he is president.

And he needs to stand up to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, a tax-exempt religious organization, declaring that reproductive rights of women will not be sacrificed in the fight over a universal health-care bill.

Time is running out.

The acrimonious debate that surrounded this legislation on the floor of the House, coupled with shortsighted acceptance of the Stupak-Pitts amendment, set the stage for the further erosion of a woman’s access to abortion for whatever the reason — rape, incest, poverty, illness — even beyond the limits of the current Hyde Amendment.

Catholic bishops have every right to speak their mind and preach the church’s teaching. But they are engaging in outright political lobbying. Helping to write legislation that turns Catholic doctrine into law. Violating the separation of church and state.

    Carol “Murine” is peddling eye wash again! What hypocrisy!

    Hey, Carol, how about asking for the Nation of Islam, the Trinity United Church of Christ, or Father Michael Pfleger’s St. Sabina’s Church to forfeit their tax exemptions? It is not going to happen because the liberals support the leftist political rants emanating from those pulpits, but it is okay to bash traditional Catholic churches for defending their values.
