Peter has a must-read post about how the Catholic Church seems surprised that the Obama administration is more or less forcing them to violate their doctrine in the name of "health care". Peter quite correctly points out that the Catholic Church was one of the biggest advocates of Obamacare, and so they don't really have call to be surprised that Progressives are doing what Progressives do.
I mean, the Cardinals were so sure that Obamacare would go so far and no further. How can they be on the short end of the stick now. And where the heck did the stick go?
Some are calling this "feed the crocodile so he eats you last". I see it that the Cardinals were Useful Idiots - tools who saw some things that they'd like about the New Progressive World and who simply couldn't wrap their brains around the historical fact that Progressives have been sworn enemies of organized religion in general (and the Catholic Church in particular) for well over a century.
Give Progressives tons of new coercive power to do things that you like, and you're surprised that they do coercive things you don't like? Inconceivable!
There's a message here about the GOP and their big visions, too (*cough* Patriot Act *cough*). TSA pat downs? I just thought you were keeping us safe from terrorists!
