Last week I wrote why it's a moral imperative to defund Obamacare in its entirety. The US Bishops are so keen to act on lesser matters such ad immigration, but delight in dragging their feet when it comes to that menace to humanity called Obamacare.
Not to worry! Cardinal Dolan assures us that "efforts are proceeding apace". What he doesn't tell us is that "apace" means "the pace of a snail". And guess what? "Further discussion will take place" at the USCCB meeting in Baltimore this November. Oh, yippee! With all that yap and yammer, all will be sweetness and sunshine once again!
Boys and girls, can we all say, "too little too late"? When the Baltimore meeting convenes, the decision to fund (or hopefully defund) Obamacare will already have occurred. Those November discussions will be akin to the Titanic crew debating on the deck flower arrangements while the ship is sinking. Does it not occur to you that if they're putting this on their November agenda, that they fully expect Obamacare to be in place?
I would say that they're inept and stupid, but that would be too charitable. I'm serious. If Obamacare is funded, the US bishops and their puppet-string pullers will bear moral culpability for every baby that's aborted thanks to Obamacare and every ill person victimized by the death panels. Far too many of them actually yearn for socialized medicine but know that flies in the face of Magisterial teaching. To appease faithful Catholics, they put up this "dumb but lovable little bumpkins" act so that they can pretend that they tried to stop it. We are not falling for it any more, and we will call them out on their duplicity and deceit.
