Now that all of the Catholic thingies, except the arch-pedophile Catholic Bishops, have endorsed passing the health care bill, mean old Bart Stupak is trying to show that, well, HE KNOWS MORE ABOUT CATHOLICISM THAN THEY DO SO SHUT UP. According to Bart Stupak’s Catholicism, any health care bill that a United States Congress can pass is just rife with all sorts of terrible abortions, so you have to ban abortion first, basically. But what about those 59,000 nuns?, a person who knows less about Catholicism than Bart Stupak (anyone) might ask. Well, Bart Stupak hates those broads too.
Congressman Bart Stupak, D-Mich, responded sharply to White House officials touting a letter representing 59,000nuns that was sent to lawmakers urging them to pass the health care bill.
The conservative Democrat dismissed the action by the White House saying, “When I’m drafting right to life language, I don’t call up the nuns.” He says he instead confers with other groups including “leading bishops, Focus on the Family, and The National Right to Life Committee.”
He should call up the nuns! Because unless we’re missing something, Focus on the Family and the National Right to Life Committee are entrenched interests of the Republican Party, and may not be completely unbiased when they’re drafting consistent “right to life language” within a comprehensive health care reform bill. They may be interested in writing language so unnecessarily strong that it prevents Democrats from moving their signature legislation!
