After the Supreme Court defeat...

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Jun 28, 2012

Two quick thoughts on today’s astonishing, disastrous, incomprehensible Supreme Court ruling:

  • Now it’s up to us. It would have been nice if the Supreme Court had eliminated the latest and greatest threat to religious freedom in America. But it didn’t happen. Now either we Catholics Americans rally to fight the political battle and defeat the HHS mandate—which, at this point, almost certainly means defeating Obama--or we live with the consequences.
  • The next time someone says that pro-lifers must support Republicans to ensure good Supreme-Court appointments, mention the name Roberts. Then mention the names Warren, Brennan, Blackmun, Powell, Stevens, O’Connor, Kennedy, and Souter. Fool me once, shame on you. But fool me eight times

    "Put not your faith in princes, in whom there is no salvation." -Ps. 146:3 So true...particularly with respect to the six "Catholics" on the Supreme Court.
