The Fortnight For Freedom has drawn to a close
As the church has been fighting for freedom—
The Bishops have lobbied to take away rights
From the women, who don’t really need ‘em.
They still have the freedom to follow the church,
To submit to the will of their masters
To leave the decisions to men of the cloth,
To the rabbis and mullahs and pastors…
When the church has the freedom to do as it pleases
And make my decisions for me,
When laws make us all the disciples of Jesus…
Then that’s how we know we are free.
You remember the Fortnight for Freedom, right? Me neither, and I wrote about it. I expect the bishops will announce that it was a thorough success.
Bishops are delusional like that.
edit–I saw another article (and promptly lost the link), with some frankly unbelievable quotes!
A national poll found 57 percent of Catholics supported the mandatory coverage for birth control, but Madden said such polls are irrelevent.
“It makes no difference because it’s [opposition to birth control] what the church professes and believes,” he said.
