Catholic Bishop Promises Civil Disobedience if ObamaCare Abortion Mandates Enforced « News for Catholics

It appears that the Catholic Church is gearing up for a showdown against the Obama Administration, especially when it comes to the ObamaCare mandates concerning abortion. Gateway Pundit has more…

Catholic.org reported:

Martin Luther King’s “Letter from the Birmingham Jail” (April 16, 1963) is one of our nation’s elegant testimonies to the political implications of our Declaration of Independence:

“One may want to ask: ‘How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?’ The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘an unjust law is no law at all.’”

Indeed, there may be more theological letters written from the confines of jail cells in the near future, as the Catholic bishops quickly approach the end of a one-year deadline given to them by the Obama administration to obey the HHS mandate or face the consequences. Not a single bishop has signaled any other intention than to embrace the consequences with the joy of serving Christ.

Was Archbishop Chaput predicting the future in the interview when he concluded,“This has been the story of the martyrs through the centuries”? We know it has crossed his mind: At Chester Springs, he said, but only half-jokingly, “I don’t want to go to jail.”

If the election affirms the Obama administration’s HHS mandate, there is a 100 percent chance that there will be civil disobedience in the Catholic Church, led by its bishops. Whether jail will follow is anyone’s guess.

I wonder how the media will cover this? Will the Catholics be portrayed as “dangerous radicals?” Will they be accused of all the things that OWS actually did, and was given cover for? I think we all know the answer to that. Though, there is a possibility that Obama will relent, if to only take some of the pressure off.

We’ll see what happens.

How sad it is that two of the chief architects of the Health and Human Services mandate are Nancy Pelosi and Kathleen Sebelius, both Catholics.

The Catholic vote will be pivotal, as it always is. The recent effort to get the Obama administration to rescind the HHS mandate has again brought to the fore the sad fact that Catholics are poorly educated about the Church’s teaching on contraception.

Of course this was written long before the negligence of this administration to protect our ambassador and his staff from their brutal murders in Benghazi, Libya and the subsequent coverup of the attacks on our Consulate. It seems no one is concerned in the least for those who died or their families as long as they can keep the media in their pocket until the elections are over. With our media appearing to be another branch of the administration, that won’t be difficult. Where is the retribution or the condemnations for this barbarity? Don’t hold your breath because politics trumps national honor in this regime.

Is this really the party of choice for practicing Catholics? One might just as well  cast a vote for satan himself as he could not wreak more violence against our Catholic moral teachings than this administration.
