I’ve been overwhelmingly busy, too busy to blog. But I’ve been reading about the health care reform regarding birth control. Initially Obama’s plan required religiously-affiliated organizations to pay for birth control. Obviously the Catholic Church is opposed, voicing freedom to practice their religious beliefs. Letter of the law Catholics do not believe in birth control. Pandering to religious conservatives, Obama had no choice but to modify his plan which now excludes religious organizations from adhering to the law.
I am horrifically mortified with the Catholic Church’s stance on the issue. EXPLETIVE, EXPLETIVE CATHOLIC CHURCH!
I feel ill knowing that I am a member of an organization that preaches family values and acceptance, yet turns its back on its own members who don’t conform to antiquated rules that are determined by old white men—men who have no clue, but are very content shaking their finger and telling Catholics what they can and cannot do. Wake up! This is not the middle ages. People have sex, people need birth control.
I was infuriated to attend church on Sunday and find our weekly bulletin included flyers on this issue, asking people to write their congress men. “This very important issue that has major repercussions for the Catholic Church.” Oh puhleeze. Instead of wasting your time bullying Obama or telling people whether or not they can buy condoms or birth control pills or have abortions, take a look at your own flaws and try to fix them.
Like all the children who have been abused by Catholic priests. SICK! Maybe you ought to paper your church with flyers on that!
