My mind would boggle if I had any boggles left.
Cardinal Dolan, head of the USCCB and the ostensible leader of the fight against the unholy Obamacare mandates, admits that his own Diocese directly pays for employee health plans that cover contraception and abortion. Yes, the Cardinal Dolan and the Archdiocese of NY pay for the killing of children. Their excuse? They do it under protest.
Well, I am sure that will make the dead babies feel better to know that they were killed ‘under protest.’
But even as Cardinal Dolan insists that requiring some religiously affiliated employers to pay for contraception services would be an unprecedented, and intolerable, government intrusion on religious liberty, the archdiocese he heads has quietly been paying for such coverage, albeit reluctantly and indirectly, for thousands of its unionized employees for over a decade.
The Archdiocese of New York has previously acknowledged that some local Catholic institutions offer health insurance plans that include contraceptive drugs to comply with state law; now, it is also acknowledging that the archdiocese’s own money is used to pay for a union health plan that covers contraception and even abortion for workers at its affiliated nursing homes and clinics.
“We provide the services under protest,” said Joseph Zwilling, a spokesman for the Archdiocese of New York.
I am sure the usual suspects will try to explain this away, these are Union rules, he inherited it, he has no choice.
THERE IS ALWAYS A CHOICE.
When it comes to the sanctioned and funded murder of innocents, the choice couldn’t be clearer.
Cardinal Dolan and the Archdiocese of NY are complicit in a grave and intrinsic moral evil.
There needs to be complete and total moral outrage over this issue by Catholics. We need to force Cardnal Dolan to do the right thing, for the babies’ sake and for his sake.
