Cardinal Timothy Dolan and the HHS Mandate
Cardinal Timothy Dolan and the HHS Mandate In pursuit of the truth - www.cinopsbegoneblogspot.com - Wednesday, April 25, 2012 This is serious. You and I are preparing an informational talk on the above topic. We will need some background info on the mindset behind this mandate which compels religious people and institutions to purchase a health insurance contract that provides abortion inducing drugs like the day after pill, contraception and sterilization. You can understand: Why would U.S. Catholic Bishops call for two weeks of action against Obama’s Mandate. “A Fortnight of Freedom,” will run from June 21 to July 4? The mandate is an absolute violation of the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. The mindset doesn’t care and it’s like in your face fellow Americans. Let us seek the origin of this mindset. It does not matter whose President. It would have occurred under Hillary. Let’s find out more about the mandate with two historic examples: 1.) Addressed to the Regents of the University of California, the California Association of Scholars prepared a report called, “A Crisis of Competence: The Corrupting Effect of Political Activism in the University of California. Peter Berkowitz wrote about it in the Wall Street Journal on Mar.31st/Apr. l, 2012. His article is, “How California Colleges Indoctrinate Students.” www.nas.org/documents/A_Crisis_of_Competence.pdg. It seems that graduates of the UC system are ignorant of history and literature; unfamiliar with the principles of American constitutional government and bereft of skills to comprehend serious books and marshal evidence and argument in written work. They don’t study the history and institutions of the U.S.A., or Western civilization. They graduate in English without taking a course in Shakespeare. It’s like committing intellectual suicide. The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) are the enablers, protectors and even apologists for the politicized university and its degraded scholarly and educational standards. The following is unbelievable. The Critical Race Studies program at the UCLA School of law announced that its aim is to “transform racial justice advocacy.” Last year, the leadership of AAUP officially endorsed the Occupy Wall Street movement. All of this is a violation of the law, Article IX, Section 9, of the California state constitution, “The university shall be entirely independent of all political or sectarian influence and kept free of them.” The liberal progressive agenda’s mindset is the mandate. 2.) The year after Ronald Reagan entered the Oval Office (1982) with the goal of restoring America to greatness, Elena Kagan penned a telling and disturbing senior thesis titled “To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933.” In that body of work, Kagan lamented that “a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States”, and that, “no “radical party” had yet “attained the status of a major political force.” Kagan went on to sound a rally cry for “those who, more than half a century after socialism’s decline, still wish to change America.” As Dean of Harvard Law, she removed Constitutional Law classes from the curriculum, and replaced them with studies of international law. Kagan also accepted a $20 million grant from a Saudi Prince Alwaleed, a noted Shariah Law proponent - to implement an “Islamic Studies” program. We have an Obama clone on the Supreme Court. George H. Kubeck - to be continued.
