The US Bishops as kingmakers?

- detail from Jeanne d'Arc showing the crowning of Charles 7

The church is suing the government. What's so awful that the bishops must litigate against the Obama administration over it ... war, torture, the death penalty, environmental destruction, tax inequalities, the erosion of civil rights? No, apparently those issues don't warrant a Fortnight for Freedom, much less a law suit.

The bishops say it's not really about contraception either. They say it's about the endangerment of religious liberty, but their idea of unlimited religious liberty has never existed in the US. I don't think this is about contraception or about religious liberty, but instead it's about power. This litigation is just the latest skirmish in a turf war, and the trophy the bishops hope to win is not the feeding of the hungry or the turning of weapons into plowshares. I think what the bishops want is to put Romney in the White House.

You can read more about this at dotCommonweal (with some informative comments to the post) - Notre Dame & others sue Obama administration over contraception mandate - and at America magazine's blog here - Bishop Blaire Seeks 'Wider Consultation' on Religious Liberty.

Hell OH! Crystal,

Victor's sleeping right, NOW? Anyway between you and me, he's been dead for about 21 years butt refuses to lay down and play the part if you know what "I" mean? His dog cells of about 46 year ago are getting win, or his that wind of "IT" and between you and me Victor and his so called cells should be running a pig farm and we his god cells would give every one of his cells who choose to follow U>S (usual sinners)a which we've nick named in the spriritual reality world, Suc cub us but don't tell Victor..............

Tell me what sinner vic?

Nothing at all Victor and you wouldn't understand U>S and what ever you do, please don't go jumping to con clu sion and tell your so called 3% "Jesus" cells that we're picking on you again cause with all do respect victor, you know that you're nothing and your "Jesus" cells will agree that you're no more important than any fetus and we your feminine cells say this.

Feminine cells sinner vic?

Hey Victor! Don't shoot the messanger and if you don't believe me just go talk to some of Willy's majority pig cells and some of will talk to you for eternity if you get my drift?

(((And that’s the end.))) (((Hardcore nihilism!)))

Would you not agree that Obama had so many people fooled with his “Yes We Can” attitude. That whole “extending health-care-coverage” effort certainly had some of my cells thrown off our dog scent — it turns out that the administration is not motivated by a set of principles that occasionally brings it into conflict with religious believers at all. It’s worse than that: the Obama administration has no principles at all. Makes it very easy to pick a side when you look at it that way. Of course it also makes it awfully hard to convince anyone who doesn’t already agree with you butt I guess you can’t have everything can you Victor? Long story short we need an old scape goat like in the days of old so do you know where we can find "ONE" of these old goats Victor?

Do you think that your imaginary "Jesus" might help U>S out of this hole Victor?

If you're talking to me sinner vic, please stop card stacking and the only imaginary "Jesus" that "I" know is "Jesus <Murphy" and between you and me, me, myself and i don't really know him cause he's not for real but you already know that! Don't ya? Personally speaking, the best friend a person can have in reality is these "three"

Please keep praying for me.
