Catholic Cardinal Says Obamacare Regulation “Violates God’s Law”
I believe this is what is called “speaking truth to power.” :
Cardinal Sean O’Malley, the archbishop of Boston and chair of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, said on Tuesday that the regulation issued by the Obama Administration under the Affordable Care Act that requires health insurance plans to cover contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs “violates God’s law.”
“The regulations that impose abortion and sterilizations, this is a violation of God’s law,” Cardinal O’Malley told CNSNews.com.
The cardinal also said that whether Americans should obey this “unjust” mandate and whether Catholic members of Congress could vote for a bill that funded its implementation were “complicated issues.”
CNSNews.com asked Cardinal O’Malley: “Does the HHS regulation violate God’s law?”
Cardinal O’Malley said: “The regulations that impose abortion and sterilizations, this is a violation of God’s law.”
CNSNews.com also asked: “Is it an unjust law?”
Cardinal O’Malley said: “That aspect of the law is unjust, yes.”
The very foundation of the law is unjust, since it is nothing but a forced redistribution of wealth.
Tell me I’m wrong.
