This kerfuffle over contraception/abortofacients/sterilization & the Catholic Church has exposed – AGAIN – the olympic hubris of the Left.
To hear them tell it, they are not only bureaucrats, but profit/loss insurance industry experts AND Ph.D.’s in theology. The arguments they proffer in what to non-propagandized people is a SCREAMINGLY clear issue of 1st amendment religious liberty are TOTALLY tangential to the issue and UTTERLY pedantic.
First: This meme that the insurance companies won’t be crushed by the cost of offering FREE contraception to EVERY AMERICAN who wants it and it will actually inure to their benefit because of the presumed, resulting diminution in expensive births begs the question: If these rapacious, greedy insurance companies really are as they’ve been sold, DON’T YOU THINK THEY WOULD BE DOING THIS ALREADY??????
So… what? Now you’re an insurance expert AND a hack bureaucrat? Like your argument about the greedy insurance companies’ costs coming out in the wash YOU CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS. Please…
And second, but related: Now you’re a bureaucrat and a THEOLOGIAN?
WHO THE HELL ARE YOU to tell the Catholic Church – based on your vapid, stupid, COMPLETELY OFF-POINT laundry lists of stats about how many Catholics already break the church’s rules about these matters – THAT THEY ARE WRONG?
THE PLAINTIFF CLERGY ARE THE FOREMOST EXPERTS ON THEIR OWN – INFORMED – OPINONS OF WHAT THIS MEANS FOR THEIR FAITH – NOT YOU, YOU POMPOUS ASSES!
It doesn’t MATTER what YOU think. It doesn’t MATTER if YOU think it doesn’t violate Catholic doctrine – or shouldn’t.
This is NOT YOUR DECISION to make. It’s THEIRS, you busy-body gimme-girl MORONS.
