Archbishop Wenski Takes on Obamacare!

The Archdiocese of Miami and Archbishop Wenski have filed a lawsuit in Miami federal court challenging Obamacare's contraceptive care provisions:
"I am defending religious freedom for the Catholic Church and its many ministries," said Wenski in a news conference at the Pastoral Center in Miami Shores, hub for the Archdiocese of Miami. "The mandate jeopardizes our freedom to serve in a way congruent to our consciences and the moral teachings of our faith."
The case is pending before Judge Graham, and the Church is represented by Roberto Javier Diaz of J. Patrick Fitzgerald and Associates, P.A., in the Gables.

Patty Fitzgerald?

Great name for a case like this!

The complaint is a very interesting read too, including passages you don't normally see too often, such as this one:
Plaintiffs’ work is in every respect guided by and consistent with Roman Catholic beliefs. Among those beliefs is the requirement to serve those in need, regardless of their religion. This is perhaps best captured by words attributed to St. Francis of Assisi: “Preach the Gospel at all times. Use words if necessary.” As Pope Benedict recently put it, “love for widows and orphans, prisoners, and the sick and needy of every kind, is as essential to [the Catholic Church] as the ministry of the sacraments and preaching of the Gospel. The Church cannot neglect the service of charity any more than she can neglect the Sacraments and the Word.” Pope Benedict XVI, Deus Caritas Est ¶ 22 (2006).
Wow, how do you bluebook the Pope?

(I guess if he says it is correct, you can probably stop there.)

Swlip, time to chime in!

This is the same bozo who put himself in the stained glass right next to Jesus and Mary when they did the renovations to St. James Catehederal... Here's a link to the Orlando Sentinel story on the controversy. What a clown.
