The lapdog media, once again carrying the Obama administration’s water, are refusing to report on the fact that Catholic institutions are suing the administration over Obamacare mandates. Some background on the lawsuits from Breitbart.com:
Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, has joined with Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington D.C., the University of Notre Dame, and 40 other U.S. Catholic dioceses and organizations in a lawsuit against the Obama administration. Twelve different lawsuits, charging the administration with violation of the Church’s First Amendment right to freedom of religion, are being filed in federal courts around the nation.
The Archdiocese of Washington D.C. has established a website, preservereligiousfreedom.org, to explain the lawsuit and its development. The website states:
This lawsuit is about an unprecedented attack by the federal government on one of America’s most cherished freedoms: the freedom to practice one’s religion without government interference. It is not about whether people have access to certain services; it is about whether the government may force religious institutions and individuals to facilitate and fund services which violate their religious beliefs.
Newsworthy, right? Not according to the lapdog media!
Nineteen seconds. Move along, bitter clingers! Nothing to see here. Plus, how can they fit it into news reports, what with all the hack reporting on Romney’s high school pranks and fomenting bigotry against Mormons?
And it doesn’t fit their narrative, sillies! Endless days of breathless reporting over Sandra Fluke, turning her into a martyr and lying about how she was fighting for “access” to birth control that is readily available to anyone at any drug store. They left out the pesky religious liberty thing, of course. Understandable; the Constitution is confusing, what with being over a hundred years old and all.
Gee, we wonder why the press is quashing this?
Bingo. So much for “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” Huh.
Evidently, Catholics “need not apply.”
