My My My. No one has said stop contraception, it is a myth put out by the white house liars r us team. Obama has been losing the women vote and the youth vote. This is a simple ploy to try to stop the bleeding. Call me if Obama can legally force the Catholic church to do abortions or give out items against their doctrine, BECAUSE if Obama and liberals can do this, then next on their agenda should be that all Muslims must eat bacon and pork chops. Obama should sell that to muslims TODAY. It would be a hit. hahahahahahahah

dead subject though, now that Dolan has received his promotion from Rome, he wont put himself in the lime-light any more than he has to.

I want this fight to go on until November 7th when the Republicans will step up to protect the 1st amendment. Now watch the Kenyan crusader go after the 2nd amendment. This is th most corrupt Administration we ever elected, from the most corrupt city in the nation.

Your brain has been corrupted. Was it the Limbaugh spores, or did the disintegration begin earlier?

The first amendment is not being threatened. Those who believe otherwise will be set back on their heels, as they should be.

Further, you lose any shred of remaining credibility, and reveal yourself as a member of the lunatic fringe, when you refer to Obama as a Kenyan.

The most corrupt administration in my lifetime was the reagan administration. Hell, he even welcomed central American death squad leaders in the white house. The rapid decline of American manufacturing began in his administration. As far as the bishops go-no normal American wants to hear their papist claptrap! Better they should focus on getting rid of perverted priests than tell women they can't use birth control!

Rick Santourum on ABC said that states should be allowed to ban contraception, he added that it's not a federal issue.

Why is it that OLD Wrinkled White Bald Men feel the urge/need to control every woman's uterine function right down to her monthly cycle? Is it womb envy? I wish the Catholic church would get over themselves. They have been covering up their turds in the litter box of life for centuries. The idea that they stand for sanctity of life, but ONLY if that life is in utero. After the baby takes it's first breath, well, then it becomes a different story altogether. The Catholic Bishop Conference needs to stop lobbying in Washington DC as a political action committee, or forego their tax free status. If they don't like Roe v. Wade, or the morning after pill ( which by the way, is not an abortion, it just doesn't allow an environment conducive to conception, should unprotected sex occur), or if they don't like women having a say when/ or if they want to become pregnant and carry a child to term, they should step up and be real men, and adopt all the unwanted children they so very much state are "sacred lives". And they should do so FOR the child's entire lifetime. If the Catholic church wants to dictate to the rest of the USA re: birth control, sexual relationships, family planning, et. al, may I suggest they clean up their own backyard re: their unrelenting sexual abuse of hundreds of thousands of children in this country and world wide first. Seems to me the Catholic Bishops have a sexual dysfunction problem. They believe in it ONLY if it involves them, and only if it is a helpless child. Obviously, celibacy isn't their forte`. There are whole grave yards in monastic orders throughout the world, where nuns buried fetuses/newborns illegitmately brought into the world via their relationships with priests. The catholic church has MANY skeletons in the closet, this being just one. This is a church whose ICON is an UNWED MOTHER, for god's sake! They hold her blessed among women....but the bald, wrinkled old white men use her as another example of their "superiority" over all of the masses. You may now kiss the ring....

Apparently, Catholic Bishops like their women alive in body, but dead in cortex, like Terry Schiavo....this is THEIR idea of sanctity of life!

It's not a federal issue. Rick did not say HE was against it, just constitutionally should be left to the states. Of course Media Matters flushes it to their MSM outlets in the form of an out of contex sound bite.
