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?
