Chief of Chaplains of the U.S. Army censors Catholic Chaplains
 

David Martosko is reporting The office of the Chief of Chaplains of the U.S. Army forbade Catholic chaplains from reading, in Sunday masses, a letter about a controversial ObamaCare mandate from the Catholic Church’s military archbishop. The move, which amounts to the head of Roman Catholic military chaplains calling the Obama administration un-American, will set the stage for a philosophical conflict between Catholic soldiers and their commander-in-chief.
 
In the forbidden letter, Archbishop Timothy Broglio encouraged Catholics in military congregations to disobey a federal government mandate -- part of Barack Obama’s health care overhaul -- requiring Catholic employers to provide health coverage that includes "sterilization , abortion-inducing drugs, and contraception."
 
"[T]he administration has cast aside the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States," Archbishop Broglio had written, "denying Catholics our Nation’s first and most fundamental freedom, that of religious liberty."
 
"And, as a result, unless the rule is overturned, we Catholics will be compelled to choose between violating our consciences or dropping health care coverage for our employees (and suffering the penalties for doing so)," he added.
 
"We cannot -- and will not -- comply with this unjust law."

Catholic League poised to go to war with Obama
 

CBSNewYork is reporting that Catholic leaders upped the ante Monday, threatening to challenge the Obama administration over a provision of the new health care law that would require all employers, including religious institutions, to pay for birth control.
  
As CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reports, it could affect the presidential elections.
  
Catholic leaders are furious and determined to harness the voting power of the nation’s 70 million Catholic voters to stop a provision of President Barack Obama’s new heath car reform bill that will force Catholic schools, hospitals and charities to buy birth control pills, abortion-producing drugs and sterilization coverage for their employees.

“Never before, unprecedented in American history, for the federal government to line up against the Roman Catholic Church,” said Catholic League head Bill Donohue.

Already Archbishop Timothy Dolan has spoken out against the law and priests around the country have mobilized, reading letters from the pulpit. Donohue said Catholic officials will stop at nothing to put a stop to it.

“This is going to be fought out with lawsuits, with court decisions, and, dare I say it, maybe even in the streets,” Donohue said.

But pro-choice groups said they will fight the church and fight for the right of employees of Catholic institutions to have birth control and other services paid for -- even if they don't want them -- even if it's against their conscience.

“The Catholic hierarchy seems to be playing a cynical game of chicken and they don’t seem to care that the health and well being of millions of American woman are what’s at stake here,” National Abortion Rights Action League President Andrea Miller said.
  

Catholic leaders hope they will have more sway with the White House than usual because it is a presidential election year, hoping that if even a small percentage of Catholics back Obama’s opponent it could cost him the election.

When asked if this issue would affect who he would vote for in November, Wilton, Conn., resident Peter Taylor said, “Potentially, yes. I think it is a very serious issue, very meaningful.”

But not everyone views the situation as dire.

“I would certainly vote for Obama anyway. The church has to get up to date,” Manhattan resident Sue Thomas said.

Sources told Kramer that American bishops are contemplating a massive march on Washington, using people and school kids bused in from all over to protest the law.

You have to admire CBS' fair and balanced reporting -- sarcasm off.

The Audacity of Obama's Secularism

George Neumayr says the secularists of the French Revolution regarded the Roman Catholic Church as the last obstacle to atheism's final triumph. Blurting this out, the French dilettante Denis Diderot proposed to his fellow revolutionaries that they strangle the last priest with the "guts of the last king."
 
Under this spirit, the forces of secularism picked up speed in the 18th and 19th century, went into overdrive in the 20th, and now floor it in the 21st. Barack Obama is the one these revolutionaries have been "waiting for." He is the stealth radical, soft in temperament but hard in thought, who seeks to use religiosity without religion to purge all traces of God from public life.
 
Not wanting to repeat John Kerry's electoral debacle -- which even Nancy Pelosi attributed to the leaden senator's undisguised secularism -- Obama worked hard to con the religious into voting for him in 2008. He "valued" religion, particularly the votes of the religious. On his campaign web page, "people of faith" enjoyed their own special slot, a mere two tabs down from the "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community."
 
Obama cast himself as a "post-partisan" politician on matters of the spirit. He found fawning dupes in the religious community to provide him with pulpits and platforms for faux-pensive addresses on his newly conceived "connection between politics and religion." This pretentious throat clearing amounted to nothing more than Alinskyite advice to his fellow Democrats that they exploit religion for secularist and socialist purposes.
 
Vulgar and violent French Revolutionaries paid the Catholic Church the small courtesy of candor. Obama prefers deception and sweet sophistries. But the announcement of his attempt to strangle Catholic schools and hospitals through an HHS contraceptive/abortifacient mandate will make his con job a little more tricky in 2012. Not that he can't pull it off. Democratic strategists have informed the press that they are confident his anti-Catholic bigotry won't threaten his reelection.
 
Obama's Fifth Column within the Church also stands ready to help. The National Catholic Reporter, to take one example, has run a sympathetic editorial about his HHS mandate. And even ostensible opponents of it on the Catholic left and center already reveal the white flag near at hand. In the last few days, they have been blubbering weakly that the issue is not "contraception" -- a subject on which they agree with the president -- but the etiquette of partisan coordination and team play. In other words, the heretical priests and nuns who shilled for Obamacare feel that the president has made them look like old fools by exposing its secularist underbelly for all to see.
 
Obama prides himself on his Aloha-style "tolerance," but it is more like the tolerance of Paris circa 1789. The ideological offspring of Diderot and Alinsky -- the latter called Lucifer the first radical -- Obama seeks to banish orthodox Catholicism from his refashioned America. While he can't throw faithful priests and nuns into prison yet -- not that fellow secularists haven't tried; Richard Dawkins and his pals routinely call for the jailing of Pope Benedict XVI -- Obama seeks to accomplish the same end by different means. By turning her schools and hospitals into conduits for contraceptives and abortifacients, he can neutralize and corrupt the Catholic faith, choking off her last breaths.
 
He once said to coal industry workers: sure, you can keep going but we will "bankrupt" you under a system of global warming regulations. His message to Catholics isn't much different. Sure, practice your faith in public, he tells them in effect through his HHS mandate. But if you do, we will fine and prosecute you.
 
Obama's secularism is like an acid that burns through everything it touches. His poisonous ideology authorizes him not just to "separate church and state" but to dominate church and state. The goal of this control is to secularize everything, including religion itself.
 
Contained within his secularism is a totalitarian seed, which will grow and grow until nothing is a "private" matter. As the hapless executives at the Komen Foundation recently learned--after committing the thought crime of withholding private donations from abortionists--no one is free to leave Obama's Animal Farm.
 
Some pigs on it are more equal than others, and, remember, the secularist Napoleons can never be wrong. Listen carefully enough to Kathleen Sebelius's defense of Obama's raping of religious freedom and one can hear the thuggish voice of totalitarianism. Did you see what she cited as proof of Obamacare's respect for conscience? That the government will refrain from injecting Catholic women with birth control! Wow, what a thoughtful regime. Even one of Stalin's party hacks might have grinned at the crude logic of that one.

The Conservative Byte is reporting that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday that American women "deserve" to have their employers buy them health insurance plans that cover sterlizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including those that cause abortions, with no fees or co-pay, even if the employer is a Catholic or Catholic organization that adheres to the church teaching that sterilization, artificial contraception and abortifacients are morally wrong and that Catholics cannot be involved in them.

"I understand that there have been objections and that some people disagree with us and we are going to work with institutions that have concerns here, but I think it’s important to note here that we believe these services are important and that American women deserve to have access to that kind of insurance coverage regardless of where they work."
