Those dang liberals. Those God-forsaken hedonists. That ... Obama ... They are waging war on religion in the United States. War on religion. Wow!!!! How odd. Since the War on Christmas ended (the day after Christmas) the Spawn of Satan have apparently been looking for another target and have finally set their sights on the Ultimate Goal \u2014 let\u2019s get rid of religion altogether! President Obama \u2014 the first Nigerian born, Muslim president of the United States \u2014 is the apparent Field Marshal in this all out war. It is a war that of late is receiving more press than the real wars in which this nation is still embroiled. You know \u2026 Iraq \u2026 Afghanistan \u2026 Remember? Instead of worrying how those wars will come to a close, the Religious Right and their allies in the Catholic Church hierarchy have decided to try and convince the American people that the bad guys (read: Liberals) are out to steal their religious liberties away from them. Timothy Cardinal Dolan is leading the charge very ably supported by an odd mixture of multi-denominational clerics who generally wouldn\u2019t give the time of day to their Catholic \u201cbrothers\u201d let alone join them in any kind of campaign. But bridging the denominational divide is a good thing \u2014 if it increases the power base and can get rid of Obama sooner. Cardinal Dolan is a real character. He dines at the White House. He rubs elbows with all sort of people in all kinds of power \u2014 from political, to business, to social, and more. He lives in a pretty hefty residence \u2014 19th-century neo-Gothic mansion at 452 Madison Avenue \u2014 much bigger and better than the huge majority of his extended parishioners. He enjoys all the good this nation has to offer without either his \u201cbusiness\u201d or himself ever needing to worry about taxes or other civic responsibilities simply because of the breaks the United States gives to churches. Dolan and others \u2014 Catholic, Protestant, and Jew alike \u2014 are kowtowed to and given every deference, honor, and perq, then turn around and whine that they are being persecuted in some mythical \u201cwar on religion.\u201d War on Religion? Every Friday, mosques around this nation are packed with supplicants. Every Saturday, synagogues are filled with Jews enjoying freedoms of worship they never did in Eastern Europe \u2014 or anywhere else for that matter. And every Sunday, millions upon million of Christians of every description gather in churches around the country to worship as they please. Only to be told by guys like Dolan that there is a concentrated \u201cwar on religion\u201d going on in these United States. And, unfortunately, folks believe \u2018em. They are, after all pastors, priests, and rabbis. They wouldn\u2019t lie. Sigh. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I implore you. Churches and churchmen in this country live tax exempt lives. At the same time they often enjoy tax-payer funded benefits. Last year alone, Catholic religious charitable organizations\u00a0 were handed over $650 million from the administration of Barack Obama. What an odd way to fight a war \u2014 on religion or otherwise. Instead of sanctions, the Obama administration\u2019s sneaky plan is to simply hand out millions and hundreds of millions of dollars in largesse until the churches don\u2019t know what to do with it anymore and close because they have too much money. Hmmmmmmm ... There has never, ever been an organized governmental attack on religion \u2014 ANY religion \u2014 in these United States. There is no \u201cwar on religion\u201d now. But the guys at the top \u2014 the Cardinal Dolans, the Rush Limbaughs, the Bill O\u2019Reillys, and the Sean Hannitys of the world \u2014 would love to have you think so. The war on Christmas is over ... until next Christmas. The war on religion is ongoing. Proof? Well, they have all kinds of spurious \u201cproofs.\u201d But despite this supposed all out assault on religious liberty, the clerics continue to actually be doing just fine under the Obama administration (and every other administration to date). The churches in this country have always had it pretty dang good. They are better off than any other business or individual, that\u2019s for sure. Instead of being grateful for all the good and benefits they do enjoy, however, they now are hoping to get the faithful fired up over some fictional \u201cwar on religion.\u201d Well, it\u2019ll be interesting to see how the bishops plan to fight this supposed \u201c war.\u201d They messed up something awful during the Crusades. I suspect they\u2019ll eventually mess up this campaign as well. When people in the pews finally figure out and understand how well off religious organizations are in this country, they may start asking questions. And religious organizations just don\u2019t do too well when folks start asking questions.
