What are liberal Catholycs saying about the Catholic Opposition to the HHS, an excerpt

Guest commentary: Catholic Church should stay out of fight over insuring birth control by Victoria Kovari

Left: This smug face belongs to Victoria Kovari who is lead organizer and policy director of the Michigan Organizing Collaborative and author of this poorly conceived(no pun) article.

...I was very discouraged at the level of outrage that this group of bishops has displayed about this ruling. I am a Catholic, go to Mass every week, serve on the Parish Council and am morally opposed to abortion. But when it comes to contraception, I am in a different camp — and I am not alone. Ninety-eight percent of Catholic women of reproductive age have used birth control, including me. So have my sisters, my nieces and almost every other Catholic woman I know...

This is a sophomoric argument. First you are not a Catholic. To be Catholic means that you believe everything the church believes and teaches not just with the things youagree with or which are easy. Just going to Mass does not make on a Catholic any more than going to a movie makes you an actor. It is unfortunate that you claim 98% of Catholic Women use contraception. This is a mortal sin(1) which you should have learned that in the Catholic High School you attended. That means you were not properly Cathecised. You, your sisters, your nieces and all the rest of the Catholic women you know are in peril of your souls. I enjoin you to repent. (Hmm, this 98% is 1 % less than the OWS crowd is using to define themselves. )

Every day we face decisions of conscience. We look for spiritual guidance to inform many important parts of our lives. But as a Catholic woman, I’d much rather see the Church exercise more of its moral leadership on issues that improve the quality of life for the millions of people in our state and around the world...

It is evident that you do not have a well formed conscience. As for quality of life that presumes there is a life doesn't it?

The rest of the article is here and here...


(1) Mortal sin: "Dictum vel factum vel concupitum contra legem æternam", A thought, word, or deed contrary to the eternal law. as defined by St. Augustine (Reply to Faustus XXII.27)
