Obama, the born-again Catholic | The Daily Caller.
The Obama campaign is touting Obama’s leftist Catholic connections during his community organizer days in Chicago. He is blaming his activism on lessons he learned while working with the likes of Father Pfleger who has since been censured by the church for placing political advocacy above Catholic teaching.
Obama’s campaign move is in response to his marked drop in approval among Catholics, due to his Abortion Healthcare Mandate. His recent advocacy of gay marriage is likely to affect his standing among Hispanic Catholics significantly.
*The media continues to ignore the tsunami of lawsuits filed by religious organizations against the Healthcare Mandate, which forces participation in abortion, artificial birth control and sterilization, all of which are antithetical to Catholic beliefs, and those of many other denominations.
U.S. Army Silences Catholic Chaplains From Speaking out Against Obama Admin Ruling | TheBlaze.com.
Some of the Chaplains read Catholic Archbishop Timothy Broglio’s letter objecting to Obama’s insistence that religious institutions pay for birth control ( hormones, abortifacients and sterilizations, etc. ) for their employees, despite a GAG ORDER from the Army Office of the Chief of Chaplains.
These chaplains were invited to contact the military archdiocesan attorney to obtain free assistance from public interest law firms which would defend their religious freedom and first amendment rights.
Prayers for the success of the military chaplains who took the initiative to defy the Army’s unconstitutional gag order.
*Pharmer will see if the letter will be read at her parish this Sunday.
