I’m shocked – LCWR supports Obamacare March 17, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, asshatery, General Catholic, scandals.

“Your winnings, sir…..”  Just as Police Captain Louis Renault was shocked, shocked to find gambling going on in Rick’s Cafe Americain in the classic film, Casablanca, I’m just as shocked to learn that “Some 60 leaders of religious orders representing 59,000 Catholic nuns Wednesday sent lawmakers a letter urging them to pass the Senate health care bill.”  Those “60 leaders” are certainly members of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), who have had no problem dissenting from Church doctrine in the past. And so we see another group of ostensible Catholics attempting to give a patina of devout respectability to those politicians who choose political expediency over core views of the faith.  And, again, I am left wondering if these ‘leaders,’ who have made plain their penchant for far left politics in the past, aren’t perhaps trading a core doctrine of the faith (abortion is never licit) for an economic program that they think will help bring a slow motion revolution to the United States.  One can never really know, but my instinct tells me that their political preferences play a huge role in their support for this disastrous legislation.

I am sure there are still some very good, devout, Catholic nuns in the orders represented by LCWR.  They need our prayers.  Prayers to continue to live according to the beliefs of the Faith, and prayers to convert their wayward sisters through their witness.  And, we must pray for those very lost souls who long ago traded rage and feminist dogma for the teachings of the Church.  And pray for the continued explosive growth of those religious under the Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious.

UPDATE: Creative Minority Report has the text of the letter sent by the nuns supporting the health care bill.   I was correct – the signatories include the head of LCWR and most of the major dissenting religious orders in the US.   Again, what a shocking turn of events: it’s about as unpredictable as the sun coming up in the morning.  I can assure you that the timing of this was worked out carefully with the leadership of the demonrat party.  There is an effort afoot, for the umpteenth time, to create an aura of inevitability around this bill.
