Holy Democrats

Holy Democrats

George Neumayr at the American Spectator examines the relationship between the US bishops and Democrats. He notes the irony that Democrats are afraid that too many of “their” Catholics may start sliding toward the Republican Party again, especially embarrassing when their presidential candidate this year is “Catholic.” But the Democrats don’t have to worry about the bishops, because except for a few exceptions, they aren’t lifting a finger to denounce Democrat distortions of Catholic belief.

The irony of the bishops’ not lifting a finger to govern Kerry within their own sphere of influence is that as president Kerry would govern them. Democrats are never afraid to cross the line between Church and state themselves in order to enforce liberalism everywhere. It is not hard to imagine President Kerry signing legislation mandating that Catholic hospitals which receive state monies hand out condoms (this is already state law in California) and permit abortion and euthanasia.

There is a difference between rendering unto Caesar and surrendering to Caesar. I’m not sure the bishops know what that is. And if they didn’t like the decision in California that requires the Church to participate in sin by providing contraceptives to Catholic Charities employees, you wouldn’t know it from their lack of outrage. Maybe they want to be governed by these people. Instead of electing Kerry as president, we should be anointing him as Holy American Emperor. Gag.
