FYI: The Catholic Church is NOT a democracy

...and they pretty much don't care what you think.  


Despite recent polls that show Catholics favor Obama's rule requiring provision of birth control for employees of religious organizations, 43 different Catholic organizations have filed suit in federal court suing the Obama Administration.  


From CBSNews:
Amid continued controversy surrounding an Obama administration policy mandating that women working at religiously-affiliated institutions be provided with free access to contraceptive health care, a new CBS News/New York Times poll shows that most Americans - including Catholics - appear to support the rule.








...61 percent said they support the requirement, while 32 percent oppose it.  Majorities of both men and women said they are in favor of the mandate, though support among women is especially pronounced, with 66 percent supporting and 26 percent opposing it. Among men, 55 percent of men are in favor; 38 percent object.

And from the WSJ:
The University of Notre Dame, the Archdiocese of New York and 41 other Roman Catholic institutions sued the Obama administration in federal court Monday, the latest push by religious groups against a requirement that employers cover contraception in workers' health plans.


Your church contributions hard at work...filing frivolous lawsuits against your opinion and judgment.

LOL, how could you ever think "church contributions" make a difference in church decisions? The Pope has contributed to the Church more than anyone and even he is limited on how things can be changed. It is the Vatican's job to work according to God's "opinion and judgment," not yours.
