Why do people insist on choosing Catholic schools and other institutions and then insist that the Catholic entity cease being Catholic? Why not go someplace that isn’t Catholic to begin with if one does not want to be bothered with Catholicism in the first place? Why work so hard to eradicate the Catholicism of a place that one chose knowing full well what kind of place it was? Unless the goal is precisely to eradicate that Catholicism. I’m thinking that Sandra Fluke knew exactly what she was doing when she chose Georgetown.

Not that it’s right, but it’s the risk/reward thing. Like people who joined the military with the intention of letting the government pay for their education, but would conscientiously object to going to war.
But now we know what Ms. Fluke was…a trial balloon. Politicians had better get used to the fact that vetting is mandatory. You’d better not put someone out to the public unless they’re really what you want them to project.
But lastly, I don’t want to pay for anyone’s contraception. I’ll not consciously lead myself down that road.
Howdy, David :)
I thought Nancy Pelosi was the one who got Ms. Fluke’s testimony heard. It’s certainly possible. I think she was vetted by those that wanted her to say exactly what she did say. That was orchestrated, pure and simple.
And, no, I don’t want to pay for something that I consider to be immoral. Our tax dollars pay for enough now that I have a problem with, but a lot of it is indirect. Now the government is trying to tell us that we have to pay for it, that everyone, even religious organizations have to pay for it, and that if we don’t, we’re going to pay huge fines.
Hmmm…Where have I heard of something like this before? Let me see… Oh, I know! It’s the Dhimmi under Islam! Minorities under the thumb of Islamic rule pay fines and live as second class citizens (well, actually, worse) if they won’t leave their non-Islamic faith and convert. Or they can be beheaded, they get to choose. Guess there is a jihad against religious freedom in the good old U.S. of A. How sad that this once great nation has come to this. We taught the world about freedom, we rescued so much of the world from tyranny and have stood as a beacon of liberty throughout the world. And now our own government is perpetrating the same kind of tyranny against us that earlier generations fought to defeat.
Makes me sick. And makes me more determined than ever to say NO. I’m turning the other cheek, which isn’t some wimpy pacifist stance but a planting of my feet and saying, Now hit the other one cuz I’m standin’ right here and I ain’t backin’ down.
Thanks for reading and commenting, David. Peace be with you. :)
