It appears that the very conservative Council of Bishops has rejected the latest contraceptive plan issued by the White House. Are we surprised? I doubt if they will be satisfied. I speculate that if all contraception were forbidden from insurance policies, they might crack a smile.
Meanwhile, our post on this subject has been one of favorite brawl places. In the interest of all sides being aired (and yes, it is killing me to be the least bit egalitarian on this topic), Mika and Joe had an interesting discussion going on Friday. Cardinal Wuerl, the Arch Bishop of Washington is their guest.
The Cardinal seems to have an analogy for everything rather than dealing directly with an issue. The fact that he compares contraception to pornography says it all.
Two concepts, health care as it pertains to women and religion seem to be on a collision course.
