Update: Obama has announced a compromise with the church. This should be interesting.
Original Story: The Catholic Church should have seen the freedom of religion travesty coming because the Obama administration has a history of forcing their beliefs down the throats of others around the globe.
Archbishop Dolan spoke with Obama in the White House and was promised that Catholic institutions would not be forced to offer employees insurance for birth control [I don’t know why we have to pay for other peoples’ sex lives anyway. I do not buy into the “women’s health” garbage. Let the collectivists pay for it themselves and leave the rest of us out of it.]
Obama broke his promise to the Archbishop, or maybe he lied, I can’t know his heart but I can guess.
NY Daily News: Archbishop Timothy Dolan said Thursday he’s “skeptical” of President Obama and accused him of breaking a promise by forcing Catholic institutions to offer employees insurance for birth control.
As he gears up for his trip to Rome to be made a cardinal, Dolan shows no sign of easing up his attacks on the White House over the contraception controversy — which has spawned its first lawsuit.
Appearing on “CBS This Morning,” he said that when he met with Obama in November in the Oval Office, he was assured the administration would not do anything to “impede” the Catholic Church.
Obama used taxpayer money to force abortion on Kenyans who are morally opposed to it.
Life News: A recent investigation by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the investigative arm of Congress, revealed that the Obama administration has broken the law. The GAO’s report establishes that at least one Obama guarantee openly lobbied to expand abortion in Kenya despite the longstanding law, known as the Siljander Amendment, that prohibits U.S. tax dollars from being used to lobby for or against abortion in other countries.
But at least one Obama guarantee did just that and more. The report reveals that the International Development Law Organization (IDLO) received $400,000 from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to, according to the grant’s stated purpose, “contribute to the enactment of a revised constitution of Kenya that resolves the underlying causes of conflict.”
Apparently, we spent $23 million on it. How dare he use taxpayer money to corrupt the values and beliefs of another country!
Fox News: A Republican lawmaker is accusing the White House of “unconscionable” and “illegal” acts for its role in Kenya’s referendum on a new constitution, which would legalize abortion in the country for the first time.
Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey cited a report by the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, that estimated that more than $23 million in U.S. taxpayer funds have been spent on the referendum. Smith and other conservatives have complained that at least some of that money has been spent in support of the proposed constitution, possibly violating U.S. law.
“Under no circumstances should the U.S. government take sides,” Smith said at a news conference Wednesday. “Yet that is precisely what the Obama administration has done.”
