Figures. Democrats’ Faith Witness Says Catholic Church Beliefs Are “Bullsh*t”

Barry Lynn, the left’s favorite anti-Christian Christian leader, told a radical far left group this week that the Catholic Bishops’ beliefs and recent statements on Obama’s HHS mandate are “bullsh*t.”

Lynn was selected as the Democrat witness to the HHS Congressional panel of experts last month.

The National Catholic Register reported:

The “religious-liberty claim” of the likes of Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ president, in the debate over the Obama administration’s contraception/sterilization/abortion mandate is “bull****.”

That was the explicit message Barry Lynn, president of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, delivered at a feminist-majority “Women, Money, Power Forum” in Washington, D.C., March 29.

He joked that the word was one he had just learned from Republican presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who recently used the expletive in a confrontation with a New York Times reporter.

Lynn was the final speaker for a panel titled “Bishops, Politicians and the War on Women’s Health.”

“What have we learned in school today?” he asked the crowd. “We learned that the Protestant religious right and the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church today have no moral authority whatsoever to seize on the rights of women.”

Lynn had been the witness Democratic members of the House Government Oversight Committee originally submitted to appear at the now disingenuously infamous Feb. 16 hearing on religious liberty and the Health and Human Services mandate. He would go on to withdraw his name in protest when Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law activist, was denied a last-minute request to appear.

Of course, the fact that this anti-Christian loon was chosen by democrats as their faith witness at a Congressional hearing surprises no one.

Sandra “Give me free stuff” Fluke was also a speaker at this conference.

    Another professional bigot feels free to publicly express his anti-religious hatred without fear of consequence.

    Because Islam is soooooooooo politically correct, leftists won’t touch it. Despite the indisputable fact that it is the most murderous, cruel “religion” (so-called) the world has ever seen. In truth Islam is a straight-up political system, pure totalitarian brooking no dissent, with a veneer of religion.

    If Lynn and other leftists, secularists think Catholicism is foolishness, they ain’t seen nothing yet when it comes to Islam. But if Islam remains untouchable because of PC, then they’ll never see Islam for what it is.

    Not until that is Islam’s many inroads into Western culture are felt by more and more.

    I’m still trying to figure out when killing your unborn children and pumping your body full of artificial hormones to make yourself sterile became a ‘right’.

    Oh yeah! I was probably those same people who clam collective bargaining is a ‘right’. That claim has become an effective emetic for the population of Wisconsin.

    As a father and grandfather I continually stand amazed at the miracle of creating new life. No matter how hard we try, it still takes sperm and egg to create life.

    While the Supreme Court found a ‘right’ in the penumbra of the Constitution and became sacroscant law, it is still wrong. Amzingly, permitting the death of children still in the womb, supposedly the safest place for the newly created life, the merely human Congress, President and SCOTUS elevate themselves far above our Creator. I can’t wait to see how He rewards them.

    And thus the Democrats and President Obama extend their warmest Easter greeting to the nation.

    I guess he thought using the word Bull$hit would work the same for him as it did to spur interest in Santorum.

    I have news for you B. Lynn (Aka 0bama skidmark)… it only works when real men of Faith have had enough and have to invoke a word like that to get a point across.

    Exactly. Barren has always been considered a curse. To make oneself barren would be unfathomable insanity in any culture ever existed on the planet. These people are nasty lunatics.

    Barry Lynn is a very sad character, going through life as angry as he is. His anger must be due to his confusion, claiming to be a churchman of some sort, but working in opposition to the teachings of just about every faith.

    Women were given the right to kill their unborn under the pretense that the unborn was a miniscule mass of cells at the beginning of the pregnancy, but it wasn’t long before women could kill their unborn later and later into the pregnancy and can now kill a full-term baby before it leaves the birth canal. People who think that a woman has a right to murder her unborn is an accomplice to murder and will be judged accordingly. God sees all.

    First of all, contraceptives have little to do with a woman’s “healthcare” except in a very small percentage of the number of women taking them. If all women where it wasn’t medically necessary were to stop taking them, their physical health wouldn’t suffer. Their economic health might if they got pregnant and had to support a child but not their physical healthcare. The only thing contraceptives are for is to have unrestrained sexual intercourse without suffering the consequences of it.

    Barry Lynn is nothing but a wolf in sheeps clothing spewing false doctrine. If he is at all biblically knowledgeable, he has to realize that it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. If he ever formed a relationship with Jesus, he might change his sinful ways. He better hurry though. He could be running out of time and it will be too late.

    The Ultimate Revolution

    Aldous Huxley author of Brave New World speaking at U.C. Berkeley in 1962. Aldous Huxley uses this speaking opportunity to outline his vision for the ‘ultimate revolution’, a scientific dictatorship where people will be conditioned to enjoy their servitude, and will pose little opposition to the ‘ruling oligarchy’, as he puts it. He also takes a moment to compare his book, “Brave New World,” to George Orwell’s “1984” and considers the technique in the latter too outdated for actual implementation.

    “There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.” — Aldous Huxley, Tavistock Group, California Medical School, 1961.


    “people must be helped to help themselves.” Any plan or program that
    would make them “dependent upon doles and charities” is “paternalistic”
    and would not be “of any permanent value.” She included an essay (what
    she called a “program of public welfare,”) entitled “We Must Breed a Race
    of Thoroughbreds.”

    “after-birth abortion”

    [Rather than being “actual persons”, newborns were “potential
    persons”. They explained: “Both a fetus and a newborn certainly
    are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’
    in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’.

    “We take ‘person’ to mean an individual who is capable of attributing to
    her own existence some (at least) basic value such that being deprived
    of this existence represents a loss to her.”

    As such they argued it was “not possible to damage a newborn by
    preventing her from developing the potentiality to become a person
    in the morally relevant sense”.]

    Congresswoman: We’re Not ‘Promoting Sterilization’
    of College Girls, We’re Just Making It Free, 3/19/12

    [Rep. Schakowsky said:“You know, this attack on women’s health care
    is–I think the compromise that the president has offered and that the
    rulemaking from HHS, I think, is a good one. This is not about, you know,
    college-age girls getting sterilization when they want it–no.”

    “I mean, there may be situations where for medical reasons and
    in consultation with the doctor that sterilization procedures are
    warranted for the health of a young woman,” said Schakowsky.

    “Contraception and related procedures, contraception was declared
    one of the top 10 preventive health services of the 20th century by
    the Centers for Disease Control,”
    said Schakowsky, “and the reason
    for these regulations is to protect the health of women, women of all
    ages, so that they can afford to get the preventive care that they need.”

    Preventative health care. Preventing pregnancy is health care? Actually, pregnancy itself is preventative when it comes to endometriosis and breast cancer. It also prevents being old and helpless and lonely, with no one but Uncle Sam to care for you and about you.
    Having children literally “keeps you young”, requiring lots of exercise, healthy food and quality time with the family. It expands your human relationships (and animal ones too), keeps your mind active, and adds love in copious amounts to benefit your emotional and mental health.
    So, by preventing pregnancy, we aren’t necessarily contributing a thing to “health”.

    Why don’t these people that have money, like Lynn, have their hair professionally dyed? Just asking. #24–I don’t know about that. Look at Sharpton and Jackson! They’re reverends also. P.S.–The small “r” for reverends was intentional.
