Pelosi Dismisses Catholic Bishops as Lobbyists

Ohh, Nancy, Nancy, Nancy!

I pray that your eyes are opened, your heart turned back to the Truth, and that you publicly repent of the things you have said as a 'devout Catholic' that are so scandalous!

Lord, have MERCY!

Pelosi Dismisses Catholic Bishops as 'Lobbyists'—For Opposing Obamacare Reg Forcing Catholics to Act Against Faith

( -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) on Thursday described America's Roman Catholic bishops as "lobbyists in Washington, D.C." in their efforts to persuade the Department of Health and Human Service to rescind a proposed regulation under the new health-care law that would force Catholics to act against the teachings of their church by compelling them to purchase health-care plans that cover sterilizations and all-FDA approved contraceptives, including abortifacients.

The proposed regulation, scheduled to take effect on Aug. 1, 2012, would require every health-insurance plan in the United States to cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives (which include abortifacients) without charging any co-pay. The Catholic Church teaches that sterilization, artificial contraception and abortion are morally wrong and that Catholics cannot be involved in them. asked Pelosi at her press briefing on Thursday: "In August, HHS issued a proposed regulation under the new health care law that would require that all health care plans cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives. The U.S. Catholic bishops have called the regulation an unprecedented attack on religious freedom and have asked HHS to drop it. Do you agree with the bishops?" 

Noting that she is "a devout Catholic," Pelosi said she sometimes disagrees with the Catholic bishops when they act as "lobbyists."

"I don't know if I agree with your characterization of what the HHS put forth," Pelosi said, "but as a mother of five children in six years, as a devout Catholic, I have great respect for our bishops when they are my pastor. As lobbyists in Washington D.C., we have some areas of disagreement.

"Again," she continued, "I don't understand the proposal as you described it. So, I won't be able to answer it. But I do think that it's important for women to have the opportunity to have full reproductive health options available to them and their insurance wherever they receive it. I support the waiver that is there for the churches now. I don't know the exception as expanded by what you're saying there."

Wisconsin School Punishes Christian Kid for Being a… Christian Kid

From the article:

Superintendent Todd Carlson of Shawano High School in Shawano, Wisconsin, is sorry a student observed his First Amendment rights and had his article published in the school newspaper that denounces homosexuals adopting children. And so Superintendent Carlson is making amends by punishing this Christian kid for being so darn Christian. Superintendent Carlson has also decided in his infinite wisdom to censure this article by having it sent down the memory hole so that no one else will be confronted with this evil Christian's views

That'll show that darn Christian kid, won't it?

What goes on today in many (most? all?) public schools is not education, but indoctrination. I see it in some of the classes that my grandkids are taking. LOTS of 'green' is being incorporated into the curriculum. Oh, I am not against wise use of resources, for we are supposed to take care of the earth. But not worship any part of it. 

This incident has been brewing for a long time, everywhere. Certain segments of our citizens are being allowed to have free reign in what is 'taught', while others are silenced. Prayer in school? No, unless, of course, you wish to teach about Islam. Then you can not only have a class on it, but you can have the students actually choose new names, etc. This has grown to having foot baths for Muslim students and special areas for prayer, yet you cannot mention Jesus, say prayers to begin the day,  wear shirts with Christian messages, draw Nativity scenes, sing Christian Christmas carols for.. CHRISTMAS!!

Sex education is being required in the youngest grades, and some courses are now beginning which parents cannot even opt out their own children! These are including classes on same sex attraction, transgender, bisexuality, etc. Condom use has been promoted already for years. Some schools have also usurped parental rights by helping young girls obtain artificial contraception, or worse, assisting teens to have abortions without parental knowledge. Some have had to cross state lines in order to avoid parental notification laws. As a result, specific laws outlawing this have been introduced and/or passed (see Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v Hartford at the last hyperlink. 

And now this. Read the rest of the article here.

Lord, save us from ourselves.
