This is what feminists should be concerned about.
*dead silence from shirtless SlutWalkers*
I’m dead serious. This is one of the world’s most severe problems right now and people who work against are being silenced.

Eric Holder Decides Roman Catholic Priests Do Not “Contribute to the Morale and Well-Being” of Military Members – 50 DOD Contract Priests Find Their Communion Sets Locked-up
After consulting with Eric Holder and DOJ lawyers, Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel, decided, “Civilian Catholic priests, working under contract as chaplains, did not, among other things, ‘contribute to the morale and well-being’ of military personnel, reports CNS News.
As of the time of this report, 50 furloughed Roman Catholic priests are forbidden under penalty of arrest, from preaching, praying for DOD congregants, and using military property or facilities.
The priests are also barred from accessing their offices to retrieve personal property.
For the record, contracted secular “family support and mental health” workers are still on the job.
Father Ray Leonard, Senior Catholic Chaplain for Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, GA, is fighting this persecution in court!
Joined by several other priests, Father Leonard has filed a federal lawsuit against the Obama Administration for violating the First Amendment by impeding Catholics’ free expression of speech and religion.
Yet, Roman Catholic Chaplains only comprise eight percent of the chaplaincy! By persecuting these contract priests, the Obama Administration is ensuring that this underserved community becomes even more underserved during the shutdown!
The Obama Administration has caused 14 days of cancelled weddings, Bible Studies, daily/weekly mass, Communion, Confession, and the administration of various Sacraments.
The Justice Department also says the “Anti-Deficiency Act” forbids the priests from volunteering their services without federal pay and is threatening to arrest them if they minister anyway!
So far, according to Father Leonard, the persecution is limited to Catholics. Protestant services are ongoing at the base chapels and Protestant pastors and priests have not yet been threatened.

Up until this point I was willing to see it as a few isolated incidents and/or a mere bureaucratic mistake. Not anymore. The Obama administration is targeting Catholics — and it’s pretty obvious why, since they have been the largest and by far the most powerful body of religious protesters of certain aspects of the HHS bill, and in fact the only major religious institution that does not receive the necessary religious exemptions.
The Obama admin has been targeting Catholics.
The sign should say:
Liberal tantrum in progress. Please stand by.
I’m thinking more, “we fought for freedom from tyrants…. and now we’re owned and you’re controlled by one”
“According the Archdiocese for Military Services, GS and contract priests (who are paid by the federal government as independent contractors in places where there aren’t enough active-duty priests to meet the needs of Catholics in military service) are being forbidden from celebrating Mass, even on a volunteer basis.
If they violate this restriction, they face possible arrest. FOR CELEBRATING MASS. “
Can I just say I love how it’s become a headcanon of the Catholic internet that the Pope and the Pope Emeritus just bro out like this.
Ted Cruz has now been talking on the Senate floor for over 18 HOURS!
Keep at ‘em, Ted! American stand with you!
He’s been speaking for 18.5 hours! Very inspirational. :)
Isn’t this nice. If you are of the Muslim religion, you don’t have to give all the new Obamacare healthcare reform regulations and penalties another thought. Because the concept of being compelled to participate in such a healthcare program offends Islamic sensibilities, Muslims are specifically exempt.
As a matter of fact if you are Amish, American Indian or a Chistian Scientist you do not need to participate or pay the taxes associated with healthcare reform. That means not having to be forced to buy healthcare insurance, not paying the taxes or the penalties if you don’t get it. Nice!But Jews and Christians and anyone else who objects on moral grounds are just tough out of luck.
