Comments on: Rick Santorum: birth control ruling has nothing to do with women’s rights http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/02/10/rick-santorum-birth-control-ruling-has-nothing-to-do-with-womens-rights/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: 1066ad http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/02/10/rick-santorum-birth-control-ruling-has-nothing-to-do-with-womens-rights/comment-page-1/#comment-424428 Sat, 05 May 2012 02:57:06 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/?p=39237#comment-424428 How’s this for an attack on the church? I want to remove their tax-exempt status. If they want to involve themselves in politics rather than focusing on their stated mission to save souls, thar’s just fine with me. Let’s tax them. On any given Sunday, and this holds true for the mega-fundamentalist churches more than any, most of the “sermon” is instruction on the joys of the Republican Party and the tragedy of allowing the Democrates to grant more freedoms to more people who don’t happen to hold with the Conservative Rights oppressive social agenda. Fine but that’s not the reasons given to justify tax-exemption. I am so sick of the churches duplicity and wonder what Christ thinks about their message of exclusion and ill-disguised Hate.

As an individual that was raised Catholic, I remember the many changes that have taken place through the years, in order to stop the decline in membership. The Catholic Church has changed it rules regarding divorce and remarriage. Newt Gingrich’s conversion to Catholicism and marriage in the Catholic church certainly is an example of that. So I do see a change in their contraceptive ban, but not before this election. I believe the bishops want anyone but Obama, but would love to get Santorum elected. There are too many empty seats at Mass these days, and they claim that the money is not being contributed to run and maintain the churches.

In an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, Santorum proclaimed that when a woman becomes pregnant after being raped, she has a duty to keep the child.

The former Pennsylvania Senator said the victim should not get an abortion, but instead welcome their “horrible gift from God.”

Santorum phrases being raped as “women in such a position.” He goes on to justify that having a baby after rape as “making the best out of bad situation.”

Santorum’s thinking on this is skewed; he’s coming off like being raped is the woman’s fault: ‘Well she was in that position, so she’d better make the most of that bad situation.’

This isn’t the first time Santorum’s exclamations have gotten him in trouble this election season. While campaigning in Iowa he told a group of supporters:

“I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money; I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money.”

None of them have any business getting involved with health care.

Contraception is not a contraversial issue; 98% of catholics use it. The church is already trying to amend their rules because millions of their faithful in africa are slowly dying of AIDs while they preach about the evils of condoms. The more the church fights on this issue, the more they reveal themselves to be anachronistic and irrelevant. Declining membership and revenues will ultimately force them to make an awkward concession.

Several provisions of the Affordable Care Act offer new benefits for expecting mothers. Search online for “Penny Medical” if you need affordable insurance for yourself or your wife.

OK…so since this is about what would be good for the Catholic Church it would also be good for Islamic business that want to institue Sharia Law within their business. That would be the exact same as it’s Islam’s money and forcing them to do somehting that they think is a grievous moral wrong is ok with Santorum.
