I am disgusted with the cowardice of my sometime colleagues in the reporting business for refusing to put the meaningful question to the bishops, Republican candidates and conservatives who are claiming Obama's would-be regulation on contraceptive medicine is an assault on religious liberty.
If no one else will state the obvious, RtO will: Not one of those people believes in religious liberty.
The RC church (though not all Catholics) has been opposed to freedom of conscience throughout its life. Every last conservative at the CPAC convention wants government to coerce you to offer public prayers to their gods.
Doubt me? Ask 'em.
On the instant issue with the bishops, my concept of freedom does not provide that your boss gets to regulate your sex behavior.
Obama's climbdown was also cowardly, and, if he had counted noses, politically foolish. As the only honest man ever to make bishop said: "It is w0rse than a crime. It is a mistake."
