It’s Open Season On Catholics
Federalist, by David Marcus

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/4/2014 5:28:42 PM

If you think Catholics are less likely to serve the public interest than any other group of people, you are an intolerant bigot. When my phone flickered with the news that the Supreme Court had found in favor of Hobby Lobby on Monday, I knew exactly what the result would be. It was perfectly clear that the religion of the five Justices who found in favor of Hobby Lobby would be brought into question. It has happened before, both in the distant and recent past. In March, as the Supreme Court heard arguments on the case, Mother Jones had this

Nice article. It´s also worth pointing out that when Catholics stand up for their beliefs (support of traditional marriage), the Left immediately brands them "haters" but Muslims who blow up and behead others based upon their interpretation of the Koran are beyond criticism.

#1 - Marcus makes that point:

The attack on Catholicism from the Left on this story is a cheap and easy shot. It’s a placeholder for actual discussion. We all know that none of these outlets would talk about Judaism or Islam in similar terms.

Hobby Lobby founder David Green is an Assembly of God Pentecostal. Five Catholics on SCOTUS found in his favor. How is that religious bias?

If you look over the justices only those appointed by Republican presidents show any flexibility and put their mind to applying the law. The ones appointed by RAT presidents including the Catholic wise Latina appointed by Obama, never deviate from the statist progressive line of thought. Since the constitution demands that the government be kept small and these justices never miss a chance to enlarge the central government perhaps all the nominations for the supreme court should come from the GOP nominee for president whether he gets elected or not. It is the progressive religion that is the threat to the nation so that is the one we need to be on guard against.

I may be wrong but it seems that the Roman Catholic Church is the one major denomination that hasn´t fallen to the PC doctrine, the worst, of course, being the Episcopal Church.

I always go back to the Communist Goals that were entered into the Congressional Record in 1963 and see which one things like this is advancing. One of those goals is to remove religion.

Yeah, non-believers privilege their religion by denying it is one. Supposedly they are better suited to the public square due to a lack of religious opinions. Meantime they are dissing Everybody else. It bothers me too when they try to hide their anti-Christian bigotry as if it these accommodations were being required by Islam in particular. It´s not my experience. My experience is real Muslims like to see God praised. It is also exasperating after the torrents of bloodshed in the twentieth century, so disproportionately at the hands of nonbelievers, that they go on talking about the bloody hands of religion. Nothing to compare with the bloody hands of irreligion.

Yep, the Catholic Church is the most despised Christian denomination, especially by the left. And the left can wage war on it all they like, but the Catholic Church will not bend to the persecution or harassment. This is why the left hates it so much. It´s why I love it so much.

Those who do the most damage to the Catholic Church are those leaders who pretend to be Catholic, but are anything but. Kennedys, Pelosi, Biden, etc.

Summer is hot upon us, another Supreme Court term is ending, and now it is time to evaluate America’s most tutored — and tortured — constitutional law student. It is unusual for a pupil of the Constitution to have such exhaustive continuing education courses, with such arduous nine-on-one tutoring from the foremost experts in the entire world. It is especially unusual since the pupil in question has actually had a constitutional law degree conferred upon him by an esteemed Ivy League institution and lectured on constitutional law at an equally esteemed institution of higher learning. Indeed, this is no ordinary

Politico: Even Liberals Want Obamacare
Employer Mandate Repealed

The unpopular, job-killing Obamacare provision that forces businesses with 50 or more employees to pick up the tab for workers´ health insurance or face a hefty tax has now lost support from even liberals, Politico Magazine reported Sunday. Liberals ranging from President Barack Obama´s own former press secretary Robert Gibbs to the liberal Urban Institute and Commonwealth Fund say ditching the employer mandate makes sense and would reduce "distortions" in the labor market. Moreover, as they note, most large businesses already provide health insurance; the provision is only expected to increase coverage by 200,000 nationwide. Furthermore, Obamacare´s employer mandate compliance

HOUSTON, Texas--Early in July it was revealed that doctors and nurses were allegedly threatened with arrest if they disclosed any information about the diseases discovered in federal housing facilities for illegal immigrants. Many on the left have claimed that by speaking out about their work at the facilities, medical personnel would be violating the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which "protects the privacy of individually identifiable health information." But Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet--an experienced physician and nationally recognized speaker--told Breitbart Texas that under the law nurses and doctors are free to speak out.

The report that President Obama has promised Senator Elizabeth Warren “complete support” if she runs for president has the ring of truth. We read it in the New York Post under the byline of Edward Klein, author of the number one New York Times bestseller “Blood Feud,” about the relations between the Clintons and the Obamas. He calls the promise the President has made to Senator Warren “a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton.” Our interest in a Warren campaign has to do with the opening it would present to address what we see as the most important issue

The Obama years: ´The trailers

As a poll of American voters ranks Barack Obama as the worst president of all time, Matt Lewis says his presidency has been a disastrous flop - talented and much-hyped but ultimately unsatisfying. The trailers were great, but the movie was horrible. Six years in, that´s the general consensus on the Obama presidency. Having ridden a wave of "hope and change" to the White House, President Barack Obama has failed to deliver on his huge box office, err, ballot box expectations. Just how bad is it? Since it is summer "blockbuster" season, I´ll explain thusly: There´s a difference between being bad

In an interview that aired on Kansas City’s KCMO 710 AM/103.7 FM last week, Sen. Pat Roberts fielded questions about his reelection with host Greg Knapp, which included queries about a debate with the three other candidates vying for the Republican nomination for his Senate seat, his long-tenure in the U.S. Senate, the debate about his residency and what sets him from challenging front-runner Milton Wolf. On the topic of his residency, which has been subject of controversy, Roberts insisted he was a resident of Kansas and downplayed the importance of actually being in Kansas in order to properly represent

When faced with a McCarthy-esque smear campaign, best to pull a communist switcheroo. Since Pope Francis began speaking in public about the Christian view on economic matters, opponents have engaged in what often feels like a McCarthy-era smear campaign, accusing the Pope of things like Marxism, communism, and Leninism. (snip) Rather than making another attempt to roundly decry a set of ideologies no one seriously suspects him of adhering to, Pope Francis turned the criticisms around on the critics: "I can only say that the communists have stolen our flag.

Vox: Pro-Life Movement Winning

The left-wing online publication Vox finds the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case to be part of a “deeper trend” in a nation that has made an “unprecedented” turn to a pro-life stance. Writing at Vox, Sarah Kliff notes that, since 2010, “states have moved aggressively to restrict access to abortion and taken new steps to defund family planning programs. Advocates on both sides of the issue describe the wave of changes as unprecedented.” Also affirming the success of the pro-life movement is Elizabeth Nash of the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute. “Abortion access has changed dramatically,” said Nash,

A "knit-in" was broken up in South Burlington on Wednesday, after five women who are unhappy with a Vermont Gas pipeline plan occupied the utility´s waiting room — and occupied themselves by knitting. One woman was bound off by police, taken away in what says were five squad cars that responded to perhaps the most civil of all disobediences. The knitters insisted on speaking to Vermont Gas officials about their complaints over a pipeline expansion. They were told they needed an appointment; after the utility´s headquarters closed, they were warned that they were trespassing. Jane Palmer, a diminutive woman in a

Mexico City - The Mexican government warned Friday that a vehicle containing radioactive material has been stolen, and issued a dire warning to the thieves against taking the potentially deadly material from its protective container. Federal civil defense officials said the vehicle had been transporting deadly iridium-192, a radioactive substance used in making some industrial products. The substance "can be dangerous for human health if removed from its container," the officials said in a statement, adding that the material can be lethal even if handled for only a brief time.

Our president vacations a lot — we’re talking $44,351,777.12 worth of “a lot,” with most expenses charged to the American taxpayer.

One such facility is located in Murrieta, California, where a large group of protesters recently blocked a bus full of migrants from arriving. The protesters remain there, adamant that illegal immigrants don´t get dumped in their town.

The dummy was clad in overalls, standing by a walker next to the outhouse.

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008.

When the German botanist Philipp von Siebold sent a variety of plant specimens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in August 1850, he had no idea what he was unleashing on the world. Among the various floral and tuberous growths he dispatched was a plant which, 164 years later, is leaving a trail of mayhem all across the planet. It goes by the name of Japanese knotweed, or Fallopia japonica. It presents a pleasing appearance to the eye: heart-shaped leaves, bamboo stems and pretty, little white-flower tassels. What is less obvious is this plant’s relentless killer instinct. Look through the

The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article. A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States.

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the

Polar bears and Emperor penguins aren´t the only species under threat due to climate change. Gingers could become extinct as a result of increasingly sunny skies, experts have warned. Scientists believe the gene that causes red hair is an evolutionary response to cloudy skies and allows inhabitants to get as much Vitamin D as possible. But if predictions of rising temperatures and blazing sunshine across the British Isles turn out to be correct, flaming red heads could cease to exist within centuries.
