Catholic Politics

Well, the Catholic Bishops are at it again. On the drive home tonight I heard this report on NPR. Remember when they weighed in on health insurance reform? Now they are having a fit about the effort to uniformly apply a decade old standard for equal treatment of men and women in health care (for some background on the putatively "new" standard see this report in Mother Jones). The hypocrisy drips from this - and from the right-wing chorus proclaiming this an attack on religious liberty. Keep the church and its reactionary views out of politics. Religions are free to not run hospitals and clinics if they cannot recognize the equal protection of the laws.
