‘Catholic Conspiracy’ on Contraception Exposed

Dr. William Fahey, writing for Crisis Magazine, exposes the folly of certain politicians’ implication that the Church is throwing around its weight in the political arena on contraception. New Hampshire’s own Jeanne “abort-em-all” Shaheen, a nominal Catholic, gets special mention in Fahey’s piece.

If it were really so, by the way, that the Church had massive power to manipulate the political order, maybe our clergy could — by their offices of teaching, governing, and sanctifying — prevent the greater than 90% of self-identified Catholics who contracept from doing so.
