Why, in election year, Obama and his team risk a major fight over the first Amendment and this fake issue of who pays for contraception and abortion supplies. Right in the face of the Catholic Church, bam! We dare you! For that offense, Obama and his team deserve to have their lunch handed to them. Well, Obama already knows how many Catholic entities have already folded on many socialist issues. He knows how many supported him for election; he knows parishioners voted for him(very slim margin)in 2008.
Babtists and others may be impacted also, but they have not been vigorous about showing fighting spirit. I think Obama and his team predict that all of them cannot mount a strong defense or get into fight attitude even though they utter some loud blustering about it. Tea Party might light up enough to give Catholic voters some spine, but their heirarchy will accomodate.
Not being Catholic myself, I am unable to gauge whether the theology is wedded to the American Constitution. Some spokesmen are mentioning the issues of First Amendment. Time will tell if Obama has the Catholic's number. This is just another of many crucial times but also a crucial opportunity for us.
