Some out takes:
And later:I am astonished at the desperation of the elite media to avoid rising gas prices, to avoid the president’s apology to religious fanatics in Afghanistan, to avoid a trillion dollar deficit, to avoid the longest period of unemployment since the Great Depression, and to suddenly decide that Rush Limbaugh is the great national crisis of this week.There's no debate about access to contraception. There is a debate, which Cardinal George of Chicago has pointed out, is a war against the Catholic Church.You do have this weird situation where President Obama apologizes to Islamic extremists while waging war against the Catholic Church--that's the language, by the way, of the Catholic bishops.You have an issue here of whether the government can coerce the Catholic Church not just into contraception but into sterilization and abortion, something I don't find any reporter wants to talk about.You have a president who voted for infanticide as a state senator, who represents the most extreme pro-abortion position in America.Let's set the record straight: Barack Obama, as a state senator, voted to allow doctors to kill babies if they survived the abortion. Barack Obama, as president, in the most radical anti-religious move made by any president is trying to coerce the Catholic Church at a time when he's been told by the bishops that they would have to give up every single hospital, they would have to give up every single university and college associated with the Church because he is asking them to violate their religious beliefs.Now if you want a debate over whether the president of the United States should be able to impose his views on a religious institution and whether America is now a secular country, let's have that debate.
Should a Protestant fundamentalist institution be dictated to by Washington politicians over whether or not it can have its own religious beliefs or have we become a country where it's okay to go to church on Sunday morning for one hour--but let's not actually express those beliefs the rest of the week. I think this is the most fundamental assault on religious liberty in American history, despite every effort by the elite media to distort what it's about.
