The Parable of the Kosher Deli
I came across this article while doing some research for the last post, Ignore History and Gamble the Future. The article is so significant that it could not be included in that blog, but needed to be highlighted as a separate entry because it was totally ignored by the mainstream media in the United States.
The article below is a must read to truly understand the core issue regarding Obama’s birth control/abortion mandate. The abstract follows:
“(CNSNews.com) – On Feb. 16, Roman Catholic Bishop William E. Lori of Bridgeport, Conn., testified in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in opposition to the Obama administration’s new regulation that will force all health-care plans in the United States to cover sterilizations and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptive, including those that induce abortions.
The bishop, who chairs the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee on Religious Liberty, submitted written testimony which he called, “The Parable of the Kosher Deli.” Here the bishop used an analogy to explain the Catholic Church’s argument against the contraception mandate. The bishop’s “parable” was not reported in the establishment press. Fox News did quote one line from it, as did ABC–not the ABC here in the United States, but the Australian Broadcasting Company.
Bishop Lori’s parable, according to a Lexis-Nexis search of English-language news sources, was not reported in The New York Times, The Washington Post, or in any other major English-language newspaper.” (emphasis added)
