Then the bad news: The Catholic bishops have stated this:
The nation's Catholic bishops Tuesday approved a statement declaring that if the Democratic-controlled Congress and the incoming Obama administration enact proposed abortion rights legislation, they would see it as an attack on the church.
I'm not quite sure how abortion rights legislation would be an attack against celibate men, but let that one pass. And yes, I know what they mean by "the church."
And by all means read the comments, which have provided the best laughs of the day.
This one, for example, by AndiF:
Well it's only fair they see it that way because I see their position as an attack on women. So there's my choice ... attack the rich, powerful, women-killing Catholic church hierarchy or help the rich, powerful, women-killing Catholic church hierarchy kill more women. Hmm, how to choose.
Or this one by Blue-eyed Violet:
A religion which feeds on its young would certainly be opposed to birth control, no?
Perhaps the "Democratic-controlled (sic) Congress" might consider the Catholic Bishops' statement as an attack on the separation of church and state?
I'm all for removing the tax-deferred status of churches, and using the money to fund women's health clinics here at home and abroad. Come to think of it, for that kind of money, we could probably fund universal health care.
Make the bishops pay for their own pointy hats.
Or this one by CParis:
Can we go to war now? I'd love to see some feminazi-homosexual-vegans smackdown on those Swiss Guards (you know the guys in the striped uniforms and pantyhose).
Would be better than WWE Raw!
Gotta quit...laughing too hard.
