Obama defends HHS mandate: ‘not fair’ that Catholics won’t fund birth control
#1
WASHINGTON, DC, July 10, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a short interview Monday with Karen Swensen of New Orleans’ CBS affiliate WWLTV, President Barack Obama reiterated his support for the HHS birth control mandate, this time adding it’s “not fair” that a woman working for a Catholic institution should “bear the burden and the cost” of paying for her own contraception.

Swensen posed a question from WWLTV viewer Michael Varino, “What can you say about a healthcare bill that’ll mandate insurance companies to provide birth control, sterilization, etc. to employees of Catholic universities, hospitals and churches since this goes against the Catholic religion?”

Swensen prefaced the question by stating that Varino “describes himself as a Catholic voter,” and followed it by adding, “We know there is compromising language in place. Some say it doesn’t go far enough and that the real, the much bigger issue is religious liberty, not contraception.”

Obama responded, “Yeah. Well it’s absolutely true that religious liberty is critical. I mean that’s what our country was founded on.

“That’s the reason why we exempted churches, we exempted religious institutions,” the president said.

“But we did say that big Catholic hospitals or universities who employ a lot of non-Catholics and who receive a lot of federal money, that for them to be in a position to say to a woman who works there you can’t get that from your insurance company even though the institution isn’t paying for it, that that crosses the line where that woman, she suddenly is gonna have to bear the burden and the cost of that. And that’s not fair,” Obama stated.

What adult usees the term "It's not fair".

Seriously, the concept of "fair" is that of a 4 yo. Adults speak of what is just.

Why did the interviewer not follow-up with "Why is contraception an absolute right?"

It would seem that this is ideal, but is it actually possible to operate without it?

This is a biggie. By whoring themselves to the Feds, they now have to do what they are told. Same thing with Catholic Schools. What did they think would happen? The majority of Catholic hierarchy are  made of demonic, social engineering puppeteers, and idealistic, hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil, idiots.

I'm beginning to think this is God's test. 54% of fellow Catholics voted for thre Obama, and frankly I don't think that number will change by much. Years ago I heard folks that should know better in Catholic Charities that abortion should only be in case of rape, and incest, and in case of a woman with serious health problems. If they think this about abortion what do they think about this ? I see a silent split in the Church here in the US, and the Obama is taking advantage of it to split the Church. He is wicked evil, and appealing to many.
