Bishop Vasa says "NO" to Obmacare

Tragically, just as Catholics who support the Church's teaching on life issues had to stand firm in their beliefs against pro-abortion Obama last election, often against their clergy, they are feeling very lonely in the fight against Obamacare.
But we have champions; brave individual bishops like Bishop Vasa who says, "Without these changes (and significant changes in other medical, moral and conscience issues) the health care bill is fatally flawed and as such cannot be supported," said the bishop.
Several Catholic organizations, including the Catholic Health Association and Catholic Charities USA, have joined the push for "health care reform" in the abstract, while remaining silent on the troubling aspects of the current legislation sponsored by the Obama administration. Although the groups have responded with statements vowing not to support abortion-promoting legislation per se, none have backed down from their original July statement calling upon legislators to enact health care reform "

Sr Carol Keehan said repeatedly to Raymond Arroyo on this Friday's "The World Over" that we have to work with the Obama Administration. Not if they hold all the cards and are so vehemently pro-abortion! Ove 50 million Americans have lost their lives to abortion; no liberal can tell me that supporting this terrible health care legisation will save more lives than that.

Off topic, but I wanted to mention the passing of Robert Novak, a well-known conservative political reporter. If you followed his career, you know he converted to Catholicism a little over 10 years ago. Here is what one of his proteges wrote regarding that conversion:

His most important change of heart was his late-life conversion to Catholicism. Brought up a secular Jew, and having lived seven decades as an agnostic, Novak entered the church in his 60s. When I went to work for him, I was considering entering the Catholic Church as well. Novak pointed me to the priests who helped answer my remaining questions and cement my faith.


Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

Thank you for mentioning Robert Novack. In all the fuss about Obamacare this fine man has been overlooked.
He was an inspiration to this cradle Catholic as well.
