When we launched this website, I was concerned there wouldn’t be enough material about which I could make daily commentary – but liberal progressive socialists make my concerns completely unwarranted.
And so today I awakened to yet another example of the insidious nature of the radical progressive agenda — this time the National Organization of Women (NOW).
As reported by Townhall.com, “The National Organization of Women has compiled a list of what they’re calling the “Dirty 100” — organizations who have filed suit against the HHS Contraception Mandate. One of the “Dirty 100” organizations that NOW claims is simply “using religion” to discriminate against women, is, in fact, a group of Catholic religious sisters called the Little Sisters of the Poor.”
Yep, you read that right: NOW is attacking Catholic nuns whose life is about serving those less fortunate and giving them God’s peace and love. Now, I have a question: former Speaker and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is “supposedly” a Catholic — does she stand with NOW and this horrific designation? Does Pelosi see this attack as a war on women, or does she align with the radical progressive feminist agenda and applaud the National Organization of Women — mind you not all women, just liberal progressive socialist women. And notice the organization is of and not for women — quite revealing.
And what shall be the response from the Catholic Church as this radical feminist organization attacks its devoted and faithful servants, these committed nuns?
The Little Sisters of the Poor take vows to tend to the needs of the elderly poor. They are opposed to providing contraception to their employees as contraception violates the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The Little Sisters of the Poor are not considered to be a “religious employer” and exempt from the mandate as they employ and care for people of all faith backgrounds.
However, these Sisters stood up to Obama and his vision and therefore are seen by NOW as evil. This is all part of the means by which progressives advance themselves — fear, intimidation and coercion — but attacking NUNS? Do these people have any conscience? Are they so “hell bent” on imposing their will upon us that they will demean, denigrate, destroy, discredit, disrespect, and disparage anyone?
NOW’s website also attacks Catholicism for the church’s stance against contraception:
There is still an opportunity for Catholic Church leaders to reverse their mistaken and even cruel position on contraception, joining the modern world and perhaps regaining respect from the laity and the rest of the world.
Does anyone at NOW consider the optics of this horrific attack? I am quite sure some will write comments on this website to defend what NOW did and applaud them for attacking the Little Sisters of the Poor.
My mother was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer back in November 1993. There was a Catholic hospice run by nuns in Atlanta, just down the street from Turner Field, who took her in and made her final days peaceful and comforting. Mom passed January of 1994 in peace because those nuns took care of the woman who brought me into the world. What NOW did is personal for me and I find it despicable and disturbing — but telling as to who they truly are.
The National Organization of Women is the dirty one — certainly not the kind and giving nuns of the Little Sisters of the Poor.
