Joe needs to go to confession. Before he is excommunicated from the Catholic church. It’s one thing to spin lies, Joe has been doing this all his life. When he ran for president he was nailed for plagiarism. But, when you lie about what you are doing to your own church, the Bishops and Priests notice. In the debate, Joe claimed ObamaCare and the Department of Health and Human Services were not mandating that Catholic institutions give free contraceptives and fund abortions. Well, Joe, like most of what you said in the debate, that’s not true. And, church officials did notice.

“With  regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear.  No religious institution-Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social  services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital-none has to either  refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is a  fact.”

The USCCB begs to  differ:

This  is not a fact. The HHS mandate contains a narrow, four-part exemption for  certain “religious employers.” That exemption was made final in February and  does not extend to “Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy  hospital, any hospital,” or any other religious charity that offers its services  to all, regardless of the faith of those served.

HHS  has proposed an additional “accommodation” for religious organizations like  these, which HHS itself describes as “non-exempt.” That proposal does not even  potentially relieve these organizations from the obligation “to pay for  contraception” and “to be a vehicle to get contraception.” They will have to  serve as a vehicle, because they will still be forced to provide their employees  with health coverage, and that coverage will still have to include  sterilization, contraception, and abortifacients. They will have to pay for  these things, because the premiums that  the organizations (and their employees) are required to pay will still be  applied, along with other funds, to cover the cost of these drugs and  surgeries.

USCCB  continues to urge HHS, in the strongest possible terms, actually to eliminate  the various infringements on religious freedom imposed by the  mandate.

The  bishops wouldn’t be suing the government over the mandate if what Biden said was  true. The way the administration has played fast and loose with the truth when  trying to obscure the attack on freedom of religion the mandate represents is  truly despicable and for all the talk about “lying” by Romney-Ryan, this fish  story takes first prize for extreme prevarication in service to a  narrative.
