So, we have to be realistic and prepare for tough times. Some, like America magazine, want us to cave-in and stop fighting, saying this is simply a policy issue; some want us to close everything down rather than comply (In an excellent article, Cardinal Francis George wrote that the administration apparently wants us to “give up for Lent” our schools, hospitals, and charitable ministries); some want us to engage in civil disobedience and be fined; some worry that we’ll have to face a decision between two ethically repugnant choices: subsidizing immoral services or no longer offering insurance coverage, a road none of us wants to travel.
Audacity. The word that describes the WH. It has the presumptuousness to tell the Church what to do. It has the nerve and mindlessness that it knows better than the Church.
Elocution skills does not a bishop make, neither does a degree in law. So, Obama can stop thinking that he is as good as any bishop and perhaps go to a silent corner to pray. Asking people to turn a deaf ear to their consciences is telling people to ignore God. Perhaps Obama thinks everyone is like the Liberal around him who would sell out God for money or sex or power, many people have not been corrupted by the world and would rather pay fines and go to jail rather than betray their God.
And if Obama's idea of religion is Islam, then that is part of the problem. So, audacious he is. Presumptuous too. Might I add - clueless, mindless, careless, imprudent and asinine.
