White House Misrepresents Its Own Contraceptive Mandate

From the USCCB, something extraordinarily incisive.

[Hat tip to E.E.]

Medicare and Medicaid -- contraception is part of both. Catholics pay taxes to support these plans, and have for decades.

Likewise private health care plans -- where payroll deductions of Catholics support contraception.

I support artificial contraception with every pay check I receive, and likely so do you. When have you ever read an episcopal letter from your bishop, or heard a bishop speak publicly about it?

Never a peep from the USCCB.

Humanae Vitae, arguably the only thing that Pope Roncalli got right, was dropped down the same bottomless black well that took Humani Generis.

It is only now, when the scandal has come to the door of their own pet institutions, that the USCCB asserts its indignance.

Where were they when the individual souls of their flocks were first compromised by the same politicians they used to play footsy with so eagerly, in the dawn of the aggiornamento? Where was their righteous anger, where their leadership?

Down that same well.

Montini, not Roncalli. Mea culpa
