The Catholic Trifecta

With a day to go, the Catholic leadership here in the states wants to make sure President-elect Obama has his marching orders.

The U.S. bishops urged President-elect Barack Obama not to rescind current policies that protect conscience rights of health care workers, prevent foreign aid to organizations promoting abortion, and ban funding of stem cell research that encourages destruction of human embryos.

The Bishops did not mention AIDS prevention. I wonder if that could be because it’s linked to condom use, and you know they don’t support that.

I hope our new presidents resends all of these measures.
