“We will close down our schools, our hospitals, our nursing homes, our orphanages. We will go out of business… before we will pay to have a child murdered.”

So argues Father Sammie Maleta, Jr. of St. John the Evangelist Parish in St. John, Indiana, in his homily earlier this month responding to the HHS mandate. This is the response I craved from my parish priest but never heard. Give a listen. It’s incredible.

At 08:45, on the inevitable aftermath of the largest provider of medical care, nursing home care, education and social services outside the government closing its doors:

The real issue that’s going on here: the  government can reasonably argue that we cannot as a nation allow that suffering to continue, and the government will step in and provide less effective and more costly services which will mean more government employees and more individuals who become completely dependent on government help. Taxes will be raised to cover this. And the ultimate goal behind this is exposed, for the United States of America will be one step closer to socialism. And in every country that has become socialistic, religion has become peripheral. But, you’ll be able to have reproductive services available at every corner.

So maybe this really was the goal all along, eh?

  1. If all Catholics post that in their blogs, the word will get around. Thanks PJ.

  2. Wow. If only Catholics were hearing this in their churches.

    By their fruits shall ye know them. If not to increase gov’t power and dependency on Big Government by forcing Catholics to either tow the Dem line or shut down their health and social services, why else would 0 be pursuing this course? Oh yeah, there’s a huge amount of PC hatred of Catholicism out there, and scapegoats are always useful for gov’ts to have around.

    I’ll be reposting this at Bread upon the Waters.

  3. The Marxist Muslim would love that, don’t you think? Then it could bring in it’s desired Islamic Caliphate. The Catholic Church has been incredibly powerful since it’s inception, and we need to go for charges of treason on ALL of those involved in this entire violation of the 1st Amendment. All branches, all levels.
