    • As the share of Catholic-affiliated hospitals increases through M&A, you're going to see a lot more of these stories.

        Given the makeup of the Court, I only expect it to get worse.

        Of course, we can vote with our feet. These are private businesses, so, never spend a penny in them. Boycott their business partners. Drive them into market non-competitiveness.

          As the article points out, that isn't really an option for some patients. And if you have a doctor you'd prefer to perform the procedure, but they can't under threat of losing their privileges at that hospital, then at what point does a hospital's religious objection to said procedure become an unreasonable burden on the patient to seek another facility and doctor to receive the care their preferred doctor says they need?

          This is why we need nationalized healthcare, just like every other civilized country.

          • Honestly, the entire Catholic doctrine on contraception is infuriatingly misogynist and anti-science, at times downright malicious or at least willfully ignorant of reality, and one of many reasons why I am an ex-Catholic. There is also the whole aspect of hypocrisy around men who are supposed to be celibate setting rules about sex for everyone else that sticks in my craw as well.

              Of course. But in the meantime those of us with flexibility have to do what we can.

              Meanwhile Catholicism follows Protestantism down the drain with the only remaining practitioners (1) authoritarian, (2) imbecile, and (3) vicious.

              I guess if America finally destroys Christianity on our way out we won't have been a complete failure.

                Sorry Kep, I have $20 on Christianity outliving America.

                    There’s always Poland. Look at them, and the crap happening there within the faithfully faithless, and yet they have still have a fairly high number of Catholics.

                      Child sexual abuse is just the cherry on top!

                      honestly the thing I’m most proud of re my family is that nearly no one is a practicing Catholic anymore. Warms my heart

                        There will always be Catholicism and Christianity, obviously. The goal is at some point superstition will no longer factor in electoral politics, just as astrology is not considered.

                        • For traditional AA, it's amusing to me how many people treat the Big Book with even more reverence than the Bible, even though you're advised to take what you want and leave the rest.

                          • Supposedly next week Thursday, there will be a global prayer to end atheism.

                            Good luck with that.

                            • I have no idea how "speaking up for the rights of the destitute" (Proverbs 31:9) turned me into a radical liberal SJW hell bent on destroying America, but I'll take the role.

                                Hope is a fundamentalist CRC college.
