I am shocked, shocked to learn that Faith in Public Life, a George Soros funded group of left-wing Catholics, Protestants and Jews, is attempting to attack the Fortnight For Freedom, the campaign of our Bishops against the HHS Mandate of the Obama Administration.  Bill Donohue of The Catholic League has the goods:

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments as follows:

June 21 marks the beginning of the “Fortnight for Freedom” events, the campaign for religious liberty being conducted by the nation’s bishops. Fair-minded persons may disagree with this effort, but there is something unseemly going on when those who work for a George Soros-funded group are quietly providing talking points to the media.

John Gehring is an official at Faith in Public Life, and it is his organization that lives off the bounty of the left-wing atheist billionaire, Mr. Soros. On June 7, Gehring sent a memo to his buddies in the media (a copy of which was generously leaked to me—click here) instructing them on how to handle the bishops. They should begin by questioning the prelates why the Obama “accommodation” wasn’t good enough. “You have to ask why the bishops can’t take yes for an answer,” he wrote.

Teaching them how to handle the “war on the Catholic Church,” Gehring advises, “Several bishops have used inflammatory and irresponsible rhetoric that conflates a process of working through complex policy issues with a fundamental attack on the Catholic Church.” He also frets over the politicization of the religious liberty campaign, an effort made possible, he neglects to say, because of the politicization of religion by President Obama.

Not to be outdone, Gehring presses his lackeys to victimize the victim, beckoning them to ask the bishops—all of whom refuse to prostitute their principles—“Are you willing to sacrifice Catholic charities, colleges and hospitals if you don’t get your way on the contraceptive mandate?”

Finally, Gehring provides a go-to list of Catholic activists who can be counted on to subvert the bishops’ message. It’s what we would expect from a George Soros group.

Left-wing Catholics putting politics before the Faith!  Who ever heard of such a shocking thing!

 

  1. Threatened?

    Liberals would be suicidal if they weren’t innumerate (the equivalent of “illiterate” in mathematics).

    The Zero’s approval rating is 43% (46% disapprove) down seven percentage points in two weeks.

    It’s not just Obama’s serial assaults on religious liberty. either.

    There are NO JOBS.

  2. It is true that most new agey liberals drive each other nuts, I see my mom getting more and more lonely and insane and more and more tyrannical at home.

  3. Valentin, there’s a phrase I heard used often in workplaces for functioning amidst what you describe at home. It was, ‘Hang in there.’ Another was, ‘This, too, shall pass.’
    Keep the Fourth Commandment which God gave to Moses for His people in mind, and remember that you aren’t alone if you keep a place for God (who loves you most) in your heart.

  4. Dividing religious groups is the last vestige, perhaps the last page, in Mr. Obama’s notebook on “How To Be A First Class Saul Alinsky Operative.” Too many naive members of secular and religious orders rely on their prayer values alone to overcome political intrusions; it takes equal parts political science and pugilism in balance with prayer.

  5. “It is true that most new agey liberals drive each other nuts”

    When your whole political dogma is based on the Primacy of Self, the competiton gets pretty stiff right away.
