Obama on CS Lewis, the Government, and Politics – and Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

Obama is just now completing his speech at the prayer breakfast and he quoted CS Lewis in support of his notions of a Christian in government.

Clearly, someone at the White House is doing some research.  I for one doubt very much that Obama has ever read Lewis beyond the quote he used.   Here is what Obama quoted:

“Christianity has not, and does not profess to have a detailed political program. It is meant for all men at all times, and the particular program which suited one place or time would not suit another.”

The Health Care Slippery Slope and Saul Alinsky

I haven’t chimed in on the health care debate but I don’t suppose my regular readers believe I haven’t any strong feelings on the matter.  Let me represent a line of thinking that I haven’t heard even among the most strident opponents to the legislation being advocated by the current administration.

Catholic Hospitals SHOULD close if FOCA is passed

I have been saying privately that if FOCA is passed there is a good chance that Catholic hospitals would be closed, without personally being aware of any suggestions of the sort being out there.  That changed today when I saw this article on the Drudge Report.

Speaking in Baltimore in November at the bishops’ fall meeting, Bishop Thomas Paprocki, a Chicago auxiliary bishop, took up the issue of what to do with Catholic hospitals if FOCA became law. “It would not be sufficient to withdraw our sponsorship or to sell them to someone who would perform abortions,” he said. “That … continue reading...
