The Bishops have said for two years, clearly, unanimously, and unequivocally that they support health care for all. Yesterday, the White House press secretary stated that "I would simply note with regard to the bishops that they never supported health care reform to begin with.." which is a bald-face lie and shows how actively the White House is seeking to divide the Catholic Church back into the two halves that it has existed in for most of the last forty years. It is becoming quite clear that they greatly fear (and didn't see coming) the amazing political force that a UNITED Catholic Church presents to them (hence their buying the souls of Sr. Keehan and E.J. Dionne for thirty pieces of silver getting them to both pretend that last Friday's "compromise" changed anything at all in this debate).
Bishop Blaire of Stockton very soundly attacks the White House's ridiculous claim that the Bishops of the U.S. have never supported health care for all. Click here to read Bishop Blare's defense.
