“This puts the Obama administration in the entirely untenable position of having to rescue the Catholic vote by claiming to be more Catholic than the Pope.” Edward Morrissey
Who would have thought President Obama’s war on women would involve Mother Theresa?
But as Cardinal Donald Wuerl pointed out, the HHS mandate would have forced even Mother Theresa to stop serving the non-Catholic sick and poor, or close up shop entirely.
Hot Air has a must-read angle on Obama’s war on Catholics:
"Most know of Mother Teresa’s work in the poorest of neighborhoods in Calcutta, but she and her order founded and ran hospice centers in other parts of the world — including an AIDS hospice in Washington DC. The ridiculous nature of the HHS mandate would indeed have treated Mother Teresa’s hospice as unqualified as a religious exemption, and the beatified nun would have had to supply free contraceptives and sterilization services to the employees of the hospice."Instead of gauging the Catholic vote by taking his cues from "Catholics" such as Vice President Joe Biden, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius, Obama might want to consider what authentic Catholics believe, such as the bishops and Mother Theresa.
