Roman Catholic Church Defends Comparison of Obama to Hitler and Stalin
The Catholic church as an institution has now decided to jump into politics pure and simple. Remember that all of this faux outrage comes from opposition to birth control when the world population is quickly on path to 9 billion and Family planning is the only thing with any hope of stemming the tide of starvation, poverty, and misery that overpopulation brings. Remember that this is about birth control and the Catholic church’s opposition to condom use across Africa in the face of an AIDS epidemic there. Remember this is about their opposition to 3rd party insurers paying for birth control in the plans they provide to non Catholic employees of the church in non religious institutions like hospitals.
But Diocese Chancellor Patricia Gibson rejected the outrage, explaining that Jenky ‘offered historical context and comparisons as a means to prevent a repetition of historical attacks upon the Catholic Church and other religions.’
She added: ‘We have currently not reached the same level of persecution.
‘But Bishop Jenky would say that history teaches us to be cautious. … (He) is concerned that our government is truly treading on one of our most dear freedoms, which is religious freedom.’
Jenky’s comments came a few days after the nation’s Roman Catholic Bishops called for a national campaign in defense of religious liberty and urged resistance to laws church officials considered unjust. The bishops said Catholics must work to change recent state and federal laws church leaders believe violate religious freedom.
The highest-profile clash has been over the mandate in the Obama administration’s health care overhaul that most employers cover birth control costs for workers.
