Catholic Bishops Call For Two Weeks of Action Against Obama

Roman Catholic leaders are planning two weeks of public protests against President Barack Obama’s policies as they intensify their argument that the administration is engaged in a war on religion.

“Civil disobedience is almost inevitable,” Deal Hudson, president of Catholic Advocate, told The Hill. “That kind of protest is on the way.”

Republicans are hoping the protests, planned for June and July will have a major bearing on the election which will follow four months later. They look forward to TV shots of robed priests and nuns being led away in handcuffs.

“These would be devastating images for the Obama administration,” GOP strategist Ron Bonjean told The Hill. “You have a very important religious demographic coming out in protest of Obama’s policies and being arrested for their expression.”

The U.S, Conference of Catholic Bishops called for the protests after the administration insisted that church-based organizations, such as hospitals, schools and universities, must include contraceptive coverage on their health insurance policies.

Sister Mary Ann Walsh, a spokeswoman for the conference, told website the faithful are preparing grass roots action at the parish level.

The protests, which the church is calling “A Fortnight of Freedom,” will run from June 21 to July 4.

The statement "they look forward to TV shots of robed priests and nuns being led away in handcuffs", if it is in fact true, implies that the republicans think the catholic bishops are planning and encouraging the priests and nuns to intentionally organize an illegal protest (without a permit for example) and encourage priests and nuns to break the law. That is a foolhardy, pathetic and arrogant plan.

If the catholic church wants to protest Obama, that's all well and good. But don't plan on an illegal protest, and don't plan on breaking the law to prove how "right" you are.

I think Catholic Bishops should worry more about their Chuch members than the president.  For instance, if they want their members to follow the no birth control rule, they should not be focusing on legislation but on teaching and leading church members.  That is, if they really care about what the church teaches rather than what non-Catholics do.

 Sounds good to me. No church should be tax exempt. It is BS.

When any religion can declare themselves moral in EVERYWAY then and only then can they have actions against any politician.  No religion is free of immoral behavior. The Catholic Church is no exception, so perhaps those bishops should look in the mirror long and hard before they want to take action.
