Does the Pope Work for the Drug Cartels???

Drug King?

Somehow, there are people who can’t see our President’s forcing the Catholic Church to supply birth control to its workers as an attack on the Church. The same folk likely see forcing Israel back to its 1967 borders as supportive, too. But it’s getting harder to keep a head in the sand when the: U.S. Tags Vatican As Money-Laundering Concern.

Our State Department now says the Vatican Bank is a drug money suuspect. The Prez loves the Church, no doubt of it whatever. Yeah, right. Seems to me, no government loves competition and the churches compete for power and for money. Both government and churches tell people what they can and can’t do and want money; you’ve maybe noticed? Obama wants to trim them down to size as Napolean advised government to do; Obama’s starting with the largest and most influential. Maybe he’s overreaching, he tends that way I think. But if the voters don’t show they care, he’ll proceed. If they care enough (open question for now) the Supremes might even remember the Bill of Rights…

  1. Well, the government’s distaste for the church goes way back to JF Kennedy when he famously quoted “I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute…”
    But considering the state of current world economics, I’m surprised that Obama is thinking of birth control when he should be more worried about unemployment control…..

      One might suspect that the separation isn’t sufficiently absolute to please the current President, who shows a tendency to overreach, in some cases…and doesn’t respond happily to disagreement.

      Not only Obama seems to eschew discussion of economic reality; his opponents aren’t anxious to get into details/practicalities either, from where I sit. Reminds of that Chinese dragon which the villagers, if they ignored it, hoped would maybe go away…
