Sexagesima HHS Sermons

Unfortunately E.J. Dionne has praised Obama's "accommodation." I don't think Cardinal Dolan is going to give up on this.  He learned a lot from the gay marriage debacle in New York, and it seems as he was the architect of this whole response (which just goes to show you what one good bishop can do).  Unfortunately, Obama's accommodation will probobly pick up most liberal Catholics, and probobly some liberal bishops.  It was great to have three weeks where Catholics, from trads to progressives, were united against this, but those days are over.  However, it looks like Dolan and most of the bishops is going to keep fighting and all 4 of the GOP candidates have embraced the Church's position. I do think this will have legs.  Obamacare is very unpopular and this action just proves to people their worst fears about it (even if they are fine with birth control). One benefit about this whole fiasco is that we're beginning to have a national discussion...on birth control!

And every parish in my dioceses had a letter read from the bishop condemning the HHS mandate.  HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was excommunicated 4 years ago by Archbishop Joseph Naumann.
