We're All Catholics Now (or maybe we ought to be)

        Under Obamacare, Catholic Institutions, including charities, schools and hospitals, would be required to provide and pay for contraception, sterilization, and abortion-producing drugs for all employees in their health plans or follow the teachings of The Church and of their consciences and pay huge multi-million dollar fines.
       The justification, of course, is to protect women's health (or is that women's 'votes'?). Looks like Nancy Pelosi was righter than any of us thought when she said to vote for ObamaCare so we could find out what's in it. If only we had known...      
        And it doesn't matter, it's not an excuse, that most women, Catholic or otherwise, accept these practices.   
        Will we next accept that Yeshivahs be forced to offer free milk at every meal, even when they're serving meat, in order to protect children's health (and, of course, to fight the 'obesity epidemic') and would it be okay because most Jews don't keep kosher anyway?       
        I wonder what's in store for the Protestants and the Muslims and the Buddhists and the Sikhs and..... 

        "First they came for the Catholics and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Catholic. Then they came for the....Then they came for....Then they came....Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me."
