The Obama Administration made a huge political error in its recent decision to compel religious institutions to buy health insurance policies that cover things they believe are inherently sinful–like contraception, sterilization, and drugs that may act as abortifacients.
Over the past two weekends thousands of priests read out a letter to their parishes promising that the Church “cannot-and will not comply with this unjust law.”
This is not a normal event for most Catholics.
And now look at the Drudge Report tonight:
Suddenly this is a Church, 70 million strong, that looks like it is spoiling for a fight.
But, you might ask, don’t most American Catholics disagree with their Church on this?
