Decades of overplayed limitations

by Jeremy Hooper

In light of the Catholic church's new "ultimatum" to the D.C. city council, we thought we would look back at some other Catholic ultimatums throughout history. Like this one, for instance:

The Associated Press, February 2, 1952:

So it wasn't that these doctors even wanted to bring their non-Catholic belief in birth control into the hospital. They weren't even allowed to be part of a group on their own time if they wanted employment with his particular hospital. Skills be damned.

But hey, at least in that case it was a Catholic institution they were controlling, something which we actually support. In D.C. the church wants their personal faith beliefs to stop a CIVIL INSTITUTION for all gay people, just as they successfully did in Maine. This simply cannot happen.

Your thoughts

Jeremy - that's what these catholics are doing with not only birth control but gay rights - how can the government or REASONABLE people counteract an edict of His Holiness Nazi in Rome that says you will go to hell if you commit the mortal sin of voting for gay rights - (or these other religions who do not give their memberships freedom to vote) talk about separation of church and state - the only way you can counteract these blackmailing religions is to not allow voting to those who participate in these religions who want to rule the world - strong, but they are really strong-arming the rest of us. OF COURSE they should pay their fair share of taxes too. They try to and DO deny rights to those of us who do pay our taxes just because of who we are.
