President Obama has decided that he wants to have a little fun with Catholics in the 2012 presidential election. He's playing them (us) liek a cat plays with a mouse.
Obama and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius (who is to infants as Hitler was to Jews- read her history) have decided to force the Catholic Church and other denominations to pay for abortions and contraceptives through their health insurance policies. Of course, this against the Catholic beliefs on abortion and contraceptives.
So, in 2012 elections, Obama and Sebelius have decided that the voters and the Catholic Church will have 3 options.
Option 1: Obama and Sebelius hope that the Catholics will forget about this issue or decide that this issue really isn't an issue, so they will vote for Obama because many Catholics are liberal and vote for Democrats.
Option 2: Catholic voters will have to decide they would rather vote for Obama than a Mormon. The Catholic Church and the Mormon religion really never has gotten along and the Mormon Church has converted many Catholics to Mormonism, and I know many of them. Mormons are actively recruiting Catholics. Further, many Catholics think the Church of Latter day saints is more of a cult than a religion, so Obama and his ilk are gambling that the Catholics will suck it up and vote for Obama than a Mormon.
And Finally, option 3 and the most likely, in my opinion: That many Catholic institutions will give up their health insurance for it's employees and force them to join a government health care insurance plan. This will greatly increase the number of people on government insurance and put more pressure into getting a single payer health insurance policy in the U.S.
I think what Obama is doing will be found constitutional in the end but it is a totally despicable piece of BS that Obama is doing. He is picking a fight with the Catholic Church to make a point- if I (Obama) can do this to Catholics and other denominations, we can do it to you, so you better fall in line. Pure intimidation.
In 1984, there was a movie starring George Burns named "Oh God, You Devil". They should rename this move to "Oh Obama, You Devil" or "Oh Obama, You POS".
