They're also going through a lot of contortions to make us look like ignorant back-woods supersitious hillbillies. The article reads:
“We are actually more comfortable having the insurance industry offer and market this to women than religious institutions,” the White House said on the conference call LifeNews listened to because they “understand how contraception works” and it “makes sense financially.”
Um.. WHAT??? I KNOW how contraception works. In fact, I KNOW how it works better than the bean counters in the white house because I understand the moral ramifications of aborting cells, as well as the moral problems with secondary participation in mortal sin. We're not objecting to contraception because we're ignorant and don't know how it works... we object precisely BECAUSE we know how it works...
This is a very good post. You are exactly correct.
Apart from the issue of the Church being forced to contribute to the eternal damnation of its own members, the administration thinks they know better, and know how to better educate Church members.
Thomas Sowell wrote about this very thing in his book, "Vision of the Annointed".
They think we are simply confused, and they are going to educate us. They do the same thing with gay marriage, euthanasia, and a whole host of other issues.
