  •  Catholicism is working on tenets (0+ / 0-)

    and beliefs that are 100's and 1,000's of years old.  Guess that's too old too.

    Why obsessing on Hindu's?  What about the other religions mentioned?  You don't want to go there, I guess.

    Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

    •  Really? I emphasize the Hindus (0+ / 0-)

      in an effort to point up the absurdity of YOUR listing them among the religious groups we should also be censuring for their supposed active interference in our current political process.  

      But since you  pretend to be unable to grasp the inference, I will have to spell it out more baldly:  exhorting us to equally censure tiny denominations who haven't done anything, when it is Catholic bishops who are shooting their mouths off, isn't just a little short-sighted as I suggested earlier:  it's DUMB.  It's a transparent distraction technique which is illogical and ridiculous.  

      If you , really, really believe  that it's horrible for a Catholic to have to allow his or her employees the opportunity that other Americans have to purchase contraception through their health insurance without a co-pay,  then argue for what you believe.  But don't go around whining about how you're being singled out for it is so dang unfair.

      •  Alright, you win (0+ / 0-)

        No other religion believes and is actively working against women's rights.  I'm not going to do your work for you and demonstrate to you that is not just Catholics.  Just go along and go after the most convenient target and ignore all the rest because it's the easiest thing to do.

        Go after all of them...still stands.

          You throw so much straw around that the fire marshall will soon be fining us. Are you hoping to get Donohue's job?

          If you want more discussion about other religions working against women's health, then write a diary about it.

          Your goal is clear: you're not wanting to talk about other religions, you're trying to silence people from talking about the Catholic church.

        •  I'll go after the loudest first, (0+ / 0-)

          and then see about the others.   That's not discrimination, EdMass, it's common sense.
