In light of Obama administration’s HHS controversy with American Catholic Bishops, JAC Director Paul Rahe writes, “At every turn in American politics since that time, you will find the [Catholic Church] hierarchy assisting the Democratic Party and promoting the growth of the administrative entitlements state. At no point have its members evidenced any concern for sustaining limited government and protecting the rights of individuals. It did not cross the minds of these prelates that the liberty of conscience which they had grown to cherish is part of a larger package – that the paternalistic state, which recognizes no legitimate limits on its power and scope, that they had embraced would someday turn on the Church and seek to dictate whom it chose to teach its doctrines and how, more generally, it would conduct its affairs. I would submit that the bishops, nuns, and priests now screaming bloody murder have gotten what they asked for.” Read part 1 and part 2 of the article at Ricochet.
