Obama Has a Bull's Eye on the Catholic Church

The whole contraception and Constitutional issue gets crazier and crazier. Obama wants all women to have the insurance that gives them the "right" to not have a child!? Where has this guy been for the last 20 years?

But deeper than contraception, we are talking about the First Amendment to our Constitution. We separated the state from church, but now the state is telling the church what to do. The First Amendment says:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

So now Obama says that all church sponsored entities must provide health insurance with contraception. Is he "prohibiting the free exercise" of the Catholic Church that is against contraception? Pope Paul VI's  landmark encyclical letter Humanae Vitae (Latin, "Human Life"), reemphasized the Church’s constant teaching on this as follows:

Contraception is "any action which, either in anticipation of the conjugal act [sexual intercourse], or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible" (Humanae Vitae 14). This includes sterilization, condoms and other barrier methods, spermicides, coitus interruptus (withdrawal method), the Pill, and all other such methods.

So now it all melds together...the state ordering all Church groups to offer a means that some Churches oppose. It appears that according to Obama the ends justifies the means and the Hades with our Constitution!

On life and the U.S. Constitution, Barack Obama is starting to get very transparent! We are starting to see his real colors. I am reminded of the old Soviet Union. The words "Socialist", "Progressive", and ultra-Liberal come to mind. But...that's just the way I see it!
