    the organization that runs the hospitals is fine with having insurance companies provide the coverage.  It's only the bishops and the uber-Catholics who still object.  

    The Church has made a distinct right turn in the last 30 years, wiping out most of the good done by Vatican II, beginning with banning birth control against the opinion of most of the Church at the time.  The abomination of a liturgy just introduced is a clear example as is this hissy fit by the same men who looked the other way when children were being raped.

      is not responsible for the mission of the church.

      They run hospitals.

      It is the Bishops whose job is to maintain the consistency and correctness of teaching.

        Bullshit!  To continue to argue with you would be a waste of my time.  I know who you are - I've known since the 1st time I went to Cathecism classes, and was told not to bother to pray for my deeply loved ex-Catholic grandfather, because he was damned.  I know it's not true, I knew it then, but that was the word from the official voice in my 6 year old world.  You like to play games with people's lives - argue tiny points of theology and think you are the smartest guy in the room.  

        Guess what, asshole?  Vanity is one of the deadly sins.

        Deal with it. The hospitals are enterprises. They get billions in government funds. I would be quite happy to cut off all of the hospitals and colleges that do not want to follow the rules.

        The GOP is the party of mammon. They mock what Jesus taught.

          exemptions from the requirements, give up your tax exempt  status.

          The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy;the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness
