A couple of interesting facts that you may not know regarding the Catholic and Evangelical freakout regarding the recent contraception ruling by the Obama Administration (if you don’t know the background go here). First, the Catholic Church has been unofficially complying with this requirement for the last 10 years…so their outrage is manufactured. Now that it’s official, they’re raising a stink about it. Second, they are falsely acting as if they were caught off guard. In other words, they’re lying about being surprised by the ruling. They’ve known for 7 months that this ruling was coming down and they’ve been planning the entire time to release a media sh*t storm as soon as it was announced. Why would they do that, and particularly at this time? Probably to give some support to conservative, religious candidates….that’s my guess.
If you would like to see why those protesting are completely full of crapola because their interpretation of the 1st Amendment is backwards and their logic incredibly faulty, read this incredibly cogent and spot on blog post. WARNING: It contains cussing and if you’re particularly religious, it will probably offend you. Just sayin…..
