    Is that number real or made up?

    Eddie, with all due respect to your opinion, while the Catholic Church has the right to dictate the rules for their members, they do NOT have the right to dictate rules for non-members.

    I find your and your Church just as offensive on this matter as as I would a Jew that would insist I must not eat pork, or a Muslim that insisted my wife must not allow her hair to be seen.

    I must agree with Irish Eddie on this. The “teachings” and the “position” of the Catholic church has been consistent throughout history. Here is just one over 800K hits on the subject.

    Now, that being said, the fact that the “church” has this stand does not mean that the members of the organization agree or comply with the ruling. It is a “law” without consequences while we reside in this world.

    But since the church does have this rule, and since the state can not make laws that prevent any religious organization from practicing their belief then those that want to adhere to that rule have the right to do so and the state should not be allowed to compel them otherwise.

    The issue isn’t whether or not birth control is or is not used by Catholics or whether or not it is practiced by Catholics. The issue is forcing Catholic church and its organizations to provide insurance to their employees that PAYS for such. BIG difference. It would be in the same class as forcing an Islamic run business to provide pork dishes in their cafeterias for those employees that eat pork, or prohibiting Jews from doing circumcisions because it maims someone’s body.

    If 98% of any group used birth control their would be none left in about two or three generations. Lalo Alcaraz was not very smart today.

    This here is Laughable !
    Much-Ado !
    When stealing a Horse out of the Barn,
    one should throw a ROCK at the HEN HOUSE
    It makes for a Good Distraction !
    (as does Birth Control)

    Will MITTNEY put his Head in the (birth control) Noose ?
    Or will the MAN (Santorum)
    With ALL the REAL PROBLEMS in the World
    (the Economy,
    WAR in the Middle East,
    Global Warming,
    This is nothing but, CLUCK ! CLUCK ! CLUCK !
    We really DON’T CARE,
    just as long as I don’t pay for it, and Poor Women CAN"T get it !
    (Santorum doesn’t use Birth Control,
    They just have an abortion)
    Why didn’t the SANTORUM’S, just give them Babies up for Adoption ? Huh ?

    @DrC: And that is a problem…no not the rules made by religion .. but the way you interpret them. The “church” does not "dictate’ but makes guidelines that you may choose to follow. The State dictates and applies penalties for those that do not follow the rule.

    Now don’t get me wrong here my brother, I do not adhere to any particular religious dogma. I do not feel the need for a “interpreter” to understand what God wants of me. Just as i can assess secular rules and adhere to those as the situation demands.

    But Doc, as you know, the constitution is specific on this point. The State has no business dictating religious principle or prohibiting those that wish to follow those religious rules from doing so. What liberals love to fall back on when they want to remove what they see as a religious symbol or quote from a public forum is the separation of church and state. so let’s do that. don’t make laws that prohibit freedom of religious expression and assign penalties for those that do not adhere to it due to their god given right to religious freedom. You can not have it both ways.

    Remember, the country was founded on this and other principles like them BECAUSE of the influence of government in their religions.

    @Runnels: Yeah, tell that to the Santaria group in south florida. Or the Rastafarian bunch …. now polygamy …. well, some mormons may still practice that and tell me which religion has pedophilia as a tenet of their faith. Not to mention some of the native American practices with ’spirit walking" and such.

    No, religions do have legal standing and the catholic church is not without political power.

    What a Bunch of BS !
    For Decades they’ve had NO Problem with it, UNTIL NOW ?
    The “Church Hugger’s”,
    (The one’s who want to CUT ALL SPENDING)
    don’t mind GIVING THEM ( CHURCHES ) MONEY !
    They have to COMPLY WITH THE RULES !
    WE (the Church) wont take YOUR MONEY
    unless it’s under OUR (the Churches) TERMS !
    The Church has been TAKING OUR MONEY for years
    But have waited until now to complain.
    Is the Church Racist ? LOL !

    IEO: Until the Holy Sea puts in place a means to clean-up and remove the prurient clergy (priest, bishops, cardinals, etc.) within your church you are without any legitimate ground upon which to stand.

    As one of your own priests asked me, “How do you get a Nun pregnant? Ans: You dress her up as a choir boy.” Now where do you suppose he learned that?

    So don’t go preaching to the rest of us until you clean up your own sex hole first…starting with your own holier than thou, pedophile aide and abetting Pope Benedict the XVI!

    The scary thing is, and why your Church doesn’t make the 1st page of the News every day, that your fantastical religious horror show is seconded by the demented, totally intolerant, murdering stooges of Islam…Hmmmmm, you know that does make closeted prurient clergy not only not seem quite so bad, just maybe we should tolerate them IEO (you know lesser of two evils). We can turn our back on them (like the Pope taught for all those years) and just let them sing EIO, EIO, EIO all the way to Old McDonalds barn yard…with their little children in tow. What do you think IEO? Save the church millions!

    @Jasper Yahoo

    JY, you probably don’t have more than just a touch at most in your Fammuley Tree as it seems Homo sapiens got in their tree much more than they did ours. Probable contribution as to why Neanderthals are just another extinct human.
