Legal analyst sees Democrats pushing contraception as wedge issue

February 28, 2012

When public discussion of contraception heated up during a presidential election year, Hadley Arkes admits that he did not immediately recognize that liberal Democrats were raising the topic quite deliberately:

What I hadn’t considered seriously enough was that the move to inject this issue was a deliberate move to shift attention away from the economy and paint the Republicans – and the Church – as mad zealots on abortion and contraception.

    While the Democrats are playing politics with contraception, the Holy Spirit is energizing the Church with their threat to freedom of religion. My money is on the Holy Spirit!
