Holy Moley!

Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan (that is his new official title and the traditional method of reference) is eloquent and yet minces no words on how he feels about how ObamaCare's mandates conflict with religious principles. Some choice tidbits:

Now we have learned that those loud and strong appeals were ignored. On Friday, the administration reaffirmed the mandate, and offered only a one-year delay in enforcement in some cases—as if we might suddenly be more willing to violate our consciences 12 months from now.
The rule forces insurance companies to provide these services without a co-pay, suggesting they are "free"—but it is naïve to believe that. There is no free lunch, and you can be sure there's no free abortion, sterilization or contraception. There will be a source of funding: you.
By its decision, the Obama administration has failed to show the same respect for the consciences of Catholics and others who object to treating pregnancy as a disease.
When the government tampers with a freedom so fundamental to the life of our nation, one shudders to think what lies ahead.
Ouch. Count Catholics among the various voting blocks that will exhibit diminished enthusiasm for the Lightworker in 2012 relative to 2008, which is likely to include cops, Jews, the armed forces, unemployed recent college grads, the business community, Iranian-Americans, doctors, and, investors of all types. (Also, college professors??)
