Hillary said this:
“Laws [about reproductive health care and safe childbirth] have to be backed up with resources and political will,” Clinton said. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” (Source)
Wow. I didn’t think the mask would come off so brutally and quickly. As Matt K. Lewis points out:
this honest appraisal is a reminder that politics are downstream from culture, and that uprooting long-standing religious and cultural beliefs are a prerequisite for utopian progressivism… Regardless of how one feels about gay rights or the abortion debate, it is interesting that liberals are finally getting around to openly confessing something all of us sort of know — yet few will say out loud: Achieving a liberal social agenda will necessarily require first extirpating many “deep-seated” Christian values and tenets.

I’m curious to see if the USCCB provides a strong, unanimous condemnation of Hillary’s position, or if some folks have their head so deep in the sand that they can’t hear Hillary.
None of the 2016 hopefuls is polling higher than Darth Vader. You’ll recall that Vader chopped off his son’s arm and blew up an entire planet, but evidently in the eyes of the American public these are minor sins compared to Benghazi, Bridgegate and Gov. Rick Perry’s hipster glasses. These numbers suggest that if “Star Wars” were real and Darth Vader decided to enter the 2016 presidential race, he’d be the immediate front-runner.
Meanwhile President Obama is polling just two favorability points below Emperor Palpatine, Lord of the Sith. Make of that what you will (Source).
Jokes aside, this makes you realize how dysfunctional democracies have become.
From our friends at Catholic Vote:
Dear CV Friend,
Thanks be to God.
That’s what a Catholic business owner who sued the U.S. government wrote me this morning following the Supreme Court decision.
Specifically, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that closely-held corporations do not forfeit their First Amendment right to religious liberty, and therefore cannot be forced to comply with the HHS ‘contraception’ mandate.
This means that thousands of private businesses run by Catholics and other people of faith are free to live their deeply held beliefs, and provide quality health coverage without the threat of crippling fines that could ruin their businesses and their lives.
Debbie Wasserman Schulz is at it again. The chair of the national Democratic Party says a bill to punish men who force their partners to have abortions is “wrong” and “senseless.” The Florida legislature passed and sent to pro-life Governor Rick Scott a bill that punishes criminals who kill an unborn child in the course of an attack on a pregnant woman. The bill ensures the criminal is charged with two crimes, for killing the baby and killing or injuring the pregnant woman. The bill was necessary because John Andrew Welden tricked his pregnant girlfriend, Remee Lee, into taking a drug, misoprostol, to cause an abortion. Lee was six weeks pregnant and refused to have an abortion as Welden had demanded. Authorities say that 28-year-old John Andrew Welden did not want to be a father, so when his girlfriend, Remee Jo Lee, got pregnant, Welden faked a prescription for an abortion pill, switched a label so the medication appeared to be a common antibiotic, and gave her the drug. The drug did its job. The unborn baby died. But punishing people like Welden is “wrong and senseless,” according to the top Democrat in the nation. (Source)
Another stellar example of pro-aborts looking after the best interests of women. We know what’s good for you…and you’ll like it too!
High Noon and the Ranchers win it. So much for the “Common Good”. Smirk.
This is the kind of thing that inspires.
