Obama is going to fund a "Green" Cross building Company. The nails used will be of recycled material as will the crowns of thorns that come with the package. All crosses can be recycled and used again and again. It's wonderful to be "Green." He will make the company tax free for a period of 10 years until they can get their "Green" company on it's own two feet.
They will also offer recycled vinegar and salt as well as spears made from recycled materials.
All towels used for wiping the Catholic's faces will be of recycled cotton. Only the best for our country's Catholics.
It so good to be "GREEN".

Sounds like the 'Patriot Act' -- named the exact opposite of its evil reality.

“In only the past few years, we’ve experienced rampant disregard for religious beliefs in this country,” wrote New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, in an e-book released for the “Fortnight” effort. Among the examples he cites are approval for embryonic stem cell research, legal justification for torturing prisoners and support for same-sex marriage.....
What about the ongoing approval and the hiding of pedophile priests. I see the church approves of cornholing alter boys. Hypocrites. I'm sorry to say I used to be a catholic.

I like Catholics.
John F Kennedy and his wife were Catholics.
Sargent Shriver was a devout Catholic.
If you don't like Catholic, you must really hate the democrats, including JFK.

This has nothing to do with 'freedom' of any kind. It is just another attempt by a cult headed by a Hitler Youth member to impose its ridiculous medieval beliefs on normal educated people. They should be dealing with pedophile priests instead of playing partisan politics. This is a cult that supported the rise of fascism in Europe and helped war criminals escape justice after the war.

There are just as many churches espousing liberal policies as there are conservative ones.

From the United Methodists calling for boycotts of Caterpillar for selling to Israel, to Obama's own Rev. Wright to Lutherans putting women behind the pulpit, religion is and always has been political.

I am conservative but I think it is time we changed the tax laws. No reason clergy from any church should be able to deduct every penny of living expenses for life, like my very liberal father-in-law who hasn't paid income taxes in 30 years, or for them to have mansions. Any of them.

Partisan? Well of course it's partisan, it isn't a Republican president who is trying to change how Catholics practice their religion. It's Obama, who is basically telling a religion, I don't care what your tenets are, you will follow the "religion" of the country and bypass all your silly old fashioned ideals about birth control and abortion and you damn well better give to to everyone and you will do it for free. Yep, too bad he doesn't have a Catholic VP on board to set him straight.

A landslide against Obama and his followers is imminent. You can feel it in the air as well as the polls.

Right, stick to ONE ISSUE and you will be fine. Idiot, as if one thing equates to the other. You probably never were a Catholic and if so, not a good one. So, I hope you didn't let the door hit you on the behind as you left. The Catholic Church is a church of many different levels, one bad one for sure, but does that make all the adoptions, child care, health care, education, free meals and lodging and other good works done almost solely by the Church for free or for a very low cost.meaningless? Does one bad thing make the Church ineligible to practice their religion in the way they see fit? For the Church to follow it's proscribed practices? A resounding NO! If you are not a believer in the tenets of the Catholic Church, you are not forced to be Catholic or follow them, but in converse, you may not abridge anyone's right to BE Catholic and to follow those same tenets. This is what Obama is trying to do, change the way Catholics practice their religion and that, boyo, is against the constitution.

I see. ONE BAD THING? Name one worse, you idiot. To believe in the "tenets" of the catholic church, you have to agree to participate in pedophilia and have another priest cover it up.

To participate in gun running, killing several people and forgeting the name of the border guard killed is worse, and of course committing perjury twice.

I love the Godless. They have no idea what the Catholics believe, but that doesn't keep them from pontificating about it. Last election President Obama received millions of Catholic votes. This time not so many. He lost the military vote, the youth vote, and the only latinos he has are the illegal ones. He lost the Unemployed he promised jobs, and he didn't give his poor, and pitiful nearly enough If he didn't have bad luck he wouldn't have any luck at all. So funny.
