Spokane bishop makes the big time!
Pope Francis has found his emissary to take his Baal Socialism (see 80181.2.1 better life)
message to the American flock.
“Leaders can make decisions that signal big changes in the political, religious and ethical landscape. In naming Bishop Blase Cupich as the new archbishop of Chicago, Pope Francis did just that.”
“Because of appointments made by Pope John Paul II and, to a lesser degree, Benedict XVI, the bishops' conference has moved to the right over the last quarter-century.”
“In naming Cupich, the pope sent the strongest possible hint that he wants the American church to move in his direction.”
“As for American politics, Cupich has emphasized dialogue rather than confrontation with the Obama administration over the contraception mandate in the Affordable Care Act. While many bishops declined to help the uninsured sign up for coverage under the ACA, Cupich asked Catholic Charities in eastern Washington to join in the effort on the basis of a long-standing Catholic principle. ‘We consider health care a basic human right, he said.”
Fine. If the Catholic church wants health care to be a basic human right, then provide for it (see BaalTyranny.blogspot.com CANON button Solutions). That’s part of the Catholic church’s charter as a charity. Don’t make it part of the Federal Leviathan (see 80257 What’s the catch?)
