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?"

the analogy is wrong. Israel continues to expand illegal settlements. What would we do if Canada was kicking Americans in Minnesota out of their homes so that Canadians could live there. Would it be acceptable for us to use violence in response to read the rest

not on US soil. I think there is a big difference between someone in a war zone and someone in America. Wouldn't you agree? If someone in the military decides to defect and fight for the other side then we can kill them without a trial in the war zone. read the rest
