Anti-Catholicism in the blogsphere

George Stepanopolis comments on a Catholic Bishops’ letter concerning funding for abortion as health care.

In a letter just released, the three Catholic bishops leading the Church’s efforts on health care warned Congress that “we will have no choice but to oppose the bill” unless current bills are amended.

A commenter stays some infuriating things.

Abortion is a legal and sometimes very necessary medical procedure in the United States and in almost every civilized country on Earth. The Catholic Church should have no say whatsoever on any healthcare policy. Interesting that those on the right say that the government should stay out of healthcare, unless of course, it’s a women’s issue. The Catholic Church is one of the most sexist institutions that exist. There’s reason so many Catholics have left the church. The above story is one of them.

I replied: 

“The Catholic Church should have no say whatsoever on any healthcare policy.”

I reply, ‘says who?’ Clearly your anti-Catholicism disqualifies you from any standing to comment on the Church’s perfect (yes I say perfect) stand on defending the weak.

If you disagree argue substance.

When you attack the Church you look uninformed and foolish. Telling the Church it cannot address this important social issue is supressing MY 1st AMMENDMENT-PROTECTED voice as a Catholic.

    And one might inform that commenter that:
    * abortion isn’t “healthcare”
    * 15% of U.S. hospitals are Catholic
    * Catholic hospitals provide above-average amounts of pro bono services to indigent patients
