The Leaders of the Catholic Church are cafeteria catholics

The catholic church is going insane over birth control, but where are they on other issues they claim to care about? Andrew Sullivan nails this one.

"But ask yourself: where were they on a much more fundamental cause for Catholics: universal healthcare? Were they anything like as vocal?

Where were they when the Bush administration was practizing and authorizing the torture and abuse and robbing of human dignity of terror suspects? The Pope never obliquely mentioned these categorical evils when visiting the US and cozying up to the war criminals in the Bush administration?

...

Why so utterly fixated on sex, especially the sex lives of women and gay men? Why so utterly indifferent to the whole range of public policies which Catholic orthodoxy has strong views on?"

Israel Land Grab
Two things. First, Israel is stealing private land from Palestinians. In 2006 Peace Now acquired a report, which it claims was leaked from the Israeli Government's Civil Administration, indicating that up to 40 percent of the land Israel plans to read the rest

Israel Land Grab
Let me see if I follow the logic here. Israel kicks people out of their homes and gives them over to israeli's. If the victims respond with use of force, which is warranted when force was used to kick you out of your home, then Outlander believes that read the rest

I recall the bush administration having a briefing that said "bin laden determined to attack within the US". They did nothing in response to that memo, we were attacked, and you guys defended the Bush admin after that. Stop with the double standards read the rest

conservatives view Israel like they view the police. Whatever Israel does is OK and justified, even if they throw a grenade in a babies crib. Any target of Israel is by definition a bad guy, thug, terrorist. Israel and the police, they can do no read the rest
