No sympathy here for Catholic Bishops as Obama screws them with executive order!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 22, 2014

Baltimore Archbishop William Lori isn’t smiling now!

Sorry for my choice of words in the title, but there didn’t seem to be anything more fitting then “screw,” which is what Obama (government generally) does to those whose hands are deep into the federal treasury.

Judy just now sent me the Bishops whining and moaning press release about King Obama’s latest declaration on gender identity and sexual orientation discrimination in agencies of the federal government (which includes federal contractors!).

And, by the way, since this is an Executive Order there is no opportunity to go to Congress for relief.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops is, of course, a huge federal contractor.

[I thought I was done with the Bishops for today when I finished my previous post a short time ago.]

Do you think they and their Catholic flock will ever get it?  Once your hands are into Caesar’s money, Caesar owns you!  Jesus knew, why don’t they?

From the USCCB (where mixed in with a lot of indignation about “religious freedom” they demonstrate their abject fear of losing their taxpayer funding):

WASHINGTON–The bishop-Chairmen of two USCCB Committees responded with great concern to President Obama’s July 21 executive order to prohibit federal government contractors from what the Administration deems “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” discrimination and to forbid “gender identity” discrimination in the employment of federal employees. The problems the bishops identify in the order relate both to the flaws in its core prohibitions, and to its lack of religious freedom protection.

[….]

Today’s executive order is unprecedented and extreme and should be opposed.

In the name of forbidding discrimination, this order implements discrimination. With the stroke of a pen, it lends the economic power of the federal government to a deeply flawed understanding of human sexuality, to which faithful Catholics and many other people of faith will not assent. As a result, the order will exclude federal contractors precisely on the basis of their religious beliefs.

[….]

As a result, even contractors [big ones like us!—ed] that disregard sexual inclination in employment face the possibility of exclusion from federal contracting if their employment policies or practices reflect religious or moral objections to extramarital sexual conduct.

Read it all, but don’t cry for them, I’m not!  Core beliefs or money? Core beliefs or money?  Which will it be?

    Sodiumpen, the same thing is happening here in Lancaster county PA. What do you think will happen when the taxpayers are going to do, as their children are now going to be exposed to deadly diseases and increased crime in the schools they are paying for. If you want to see what happens to the public school as a result of massive immigration, look no further than Scandinavia and well, really, ALL of Europe. The white children are marginalized and go to school in abject fear. The teachers can no longer teach. I keep praying for a massive parent strike but I’m not hopeful it will ever happen.

    Sorry for the OT – but this article backs-up what I stated several days ago regarding the huge negative impact of illegal “minors” on special education in our schools & children: MA is the state where my relative was a school administrator – this “impact” is happening all over the state both due to illegal immigration and refugee dumping. (ie:Springfield, MA)

    “Even though Boston public schools are facing slashed budgets, the number of students getting additional and costly special educations continues to rise every year, wasting taxpayer’s cash and preventing hundreds of other students who actually need special education courses from getting what they deserve.”
