CHA jumps the shark March 4, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, General Catholic.

I figured this would happen – the Catholic Health Association, in the form of their nominal chief executive, Sr. Carol Keehan, has finally said it  – if you’re not pro Obamacare, you’re not pro-life.  Forget the fact that whether government provided health care is even the best way to achieve adequate health care for the broadest range of citizens possible, and whether Obamacare is even a good way of achieving “government run health care”, are open questions and prudential judgements.  ‘Pope’ Carol Keehan has just rewritten the Catechism and told us that prudential issues of how to provide social justice now trump intrinsic evils.  This argument, used by those pushing Obamacare for months now, and more so, by those who attempt to deflect their support for Obama by equating the murder of over a million Americans a year with a few percentage points increase in funding for welfare,  is an indication of how bankrupt their ideas are – and how ideological this pursuit is to the management at CHA.  That Sr. Keehan can say this, and never once admit that 1)CHA stands to gain BILLIONS of dollars in funding if Obamacare is approved, and 2) this current bill DOES fund abortion, and any bill passed by this Congress would HAVE to fund abortion, says alot about Sr. Keehan.

Another thing that says alot about Sr. Keehan?  When she appeared on Raymond Arroyo’s The World Over Live on EWTN, she wore her habit.  Try finding another video or picture of Sr. Carol wearing the habit – you won’t be able to. 

There’s playing to your audience, and then there’s being a disingenuous hack.  Which do you think Sr. Keehan is?

I will check out the video, Mr. Hichborn. I greatly value the work that you do at ALL. I’ve seen you on The World Over Live and I think your organization’s research into the funding activities of CCHD had been something sorely needed. I pray that the bishops and USCCB management will come to realize what a misbegotten enterprise CCHD is.

Thanks for coming by, and God Bless.
