Fr. Jenkins At ND Responds To Obama's Decision

You got to be kidding me.

“I am deeply disappointed in a decision by the administration that will place many religious organizations of all faiths in an untenable position.

“This unnecessary intervention by the government into religion disregards our nation’s commitment to the rights of conscience and the longstanding work of religious groups to help build a more compassionate society and vibrant democracy. I find that profoundly troubling on many levels.

“Moving forward, we call for a national dialogue among religious groups, government and the American people to reaffirm our country’s historic respect for freedom of conscience and defense of religious liberty.”

Really? That's all you have for us? You are "disappointed" and "troubled" by all this. Well, gee, I'm sorry your feelings are hurt. How about addressing your role in this? Or just calling the President out as a liar? Maybe you remember when he said this:

Let's honor the conscience of those who disagree with abortion, and draft a sensible conscience clause, and make sure that all of our health care policies are grounded not only in sound science, but also in clear ethics, as well as respect for the equality of women." Those are things we can do.

Maybe you do. Maybe you recall when you looked for the adoration of man instead of service to God by giving this creep a platform to promote himself. Maybe you do, but you sure as hell don't seem all that remorseful about it.

And then to bend the knee again by asking for DIALOGUE of all things. Dialogue? Are you completely insane? Something about "doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result" comes to mind. First off, the man lied to your face. That alone is worth calling him out. But now he's directly attacking the Church and your best response is to ask for dialogue? Holy smokes!

Let's hope that the rest of the Church's leaders react with something more than an appeal for more failure.
