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?"

Iraq was not a threat to us, and the aftermath is worse than the old status quo. The Iraq war was a giant mistake, because the above is true, and it cost us many many lives and trillions of dollars. No person can claim to care about government read the rest

D6, to answer your early question about this being "real green energy" or not. For me green means two things, it doesn't pollute relatively speaking and its renewable. This isn't the read the rest
