Cardinal Dolan has a good piece on his blog about the more recent dvelopments concerning the HHS mandate. He points out that the Obama administration has written off the bishops as the voice of the Catholic Church. Instead Obama and company are advising the bishops to listen to voices of accomodation within the Church, that is, the voices that agree with Obama! As Cardinal Dolan says ".. . . . . . we have to be realistic and prepare for tough times." Hmm, something about the "armor of God" might be appropriate about now?
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6, 10-12)
