Uh, no


The White House is “all talk, no action” on moving toward compromise, said Anthony Picarello, general counsel for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “There has been a lot of talk in the last couple days about compromise, but it sounds to us like a way to turn down the heat, to placate people without doing anything in particular,” Picarello said. “We’re not going to do anything until this is fixed.”

That means removing the provision from the health care law altogether, he said, not simply changing it for Catholic employers and their insurers. He cited the problem that would create for “good Catholic business people who can’t in good conscience cooperate with this.”

  1. According to almost everybody, 98% to 99% of women use contraception-the lower percentage is for Roman Catholic women.

    Suppose the Catholic Church wins its fight against paying its holy money for health insurance that covers contraception, forcing its female workers to pay for it themselves…won’t they be paying for it out of their paychecks?

    Issued to them by the Catholic Church? The only way to prevent Church money going for contraception is for the Church to stop hiring any female who hasn’t yet reached menopause.

    Good luck trying to operate a hospital with no female employees younger than 50!
