Bishops Decry HHS Mandate, Rebuke Obama And Sebelius

Here is a smattering of statements of various bishops in the wake of the tyranical display against people of faith and conscience put forth by His Nibs, the Messiah Most Miserable and Kathleen Sebelius, one of his Minions Most Mindless.

Archbishop Timothy Dolan: "You bet we got a disagreement. 'The government doesn’t have the right to butt into the internal governance and teachings of the church. It’s not about contraception. It’s about the right of conscience. This is not a Catholic issue, it’s an American issue.."

Bishop David Zubik (Pittsburgh): "Kathleen Sebelius (Health and Human Services Secretary) and through her, the Obama administration, have said ‘To Hell with You’ to the Catholic faithful of the United States.."

Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz (Lincoln, NE):  "The present secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, a bitter fallen-away Catholic, now requires that all insurance, even when issued privately, must carry coverage for evil and grave sin."    

Bishop Thomas Olmsted (Phoenix, AZ): "We cannot - we will not - comply with this unjust law."

Bishop Daniel Jenky (Peora, IL) has asked Catholic institutions in his diocese to insert the Prayer to St Michael the Archangel in their Mass intercessions.

We trust there will be more statements, and commensurate actions to follow.
