But the strategy has also exposed serious fault lines within theU.S. hierarchy, as some leaders are privately and even openlyquestioning the legal and political ramifications of thebishops" latest battle with the White House. The first public sign of the internal split came on Tuesday (May22), a day after 43 Catholic dioceses, universities and otherchurch institutions filed a dozen lawsuits around the country seeking to overturn a policy from theDepartment of Health and Human Services that requires employers ortheir insurance companies to provide free contraceptive coverage toemployees. In an interview with America magazine , a national weekly published by the Jesuits, Bishop Stephen E.Blaire of Stockton, Calif., warned that "there is a concernamong some bishops that there ought to have been more of a widerconsultation" regarding overall strategy before suchaggressive legal action was taken. Blaire, a leading spokesman on social justice issues as head of thedomestic policy committee of the U.S.
Conference of CatholicBishops, worried that the confrontational approach taken by thebishops was being exploited by political groups "very far tothe right" who are trying to use the conflict with the WhiteHouse as "an anti-Obama campaign." "I think there are different groups that are trying to co-optthis and make it into political issue, and that"s why we needto have a deeper discussion as bishops," said Blaire, whoreiterated that he opposes the contraception mandate and fullysupported efforts to defend the church"s religious liberty. The entire U.S. hierarchy is to meet in Atlanta in June for itsannual spring meeting,http://www.coollouboutinoutletshoes.com, and Blaire and others have suggested thelawsuits could have waited until after that meeting. Blaire cited a number of other concerns about the legal strategy,including that plaintiffs could lose. That already happened in2004, when the California Supreme Court upheld a mandate much likethe one proposed by Obama"s HHS.
If the current plaintiffslose in a federal case before the U.S. Supreme Court, that couldenshrine the principal they oppose as a judicial precedent. Another problem noted by Blaire, and one that several bishops haveprivately lamented, is that different bishops and conservativeactivists are citing different rationales for opposing the mandate:some see the fight as a defense of religious freedom, others say itis about protecting individual consciences, and still others objectto the mandate as promoting birth control and sexual license. Some of those claims are weaker than others, and Blaire said somecould feed into the "war on women" meme. Super Grip Belt
He also saidthey might detract from ongoing efforts to craft an acceptableaccommodation with the White House, but above all they represent afailure by the bishops to act in unison to achieve an agreed upongoal. Even before Blaire made his comments there were indications thatthe legal approach promoted by many bishops and Catholicconservatives was not as widely embraced as its promoters made itseem. Just 13 of the nearly 200 U.S. dioceses signed onto the suit,http://www.lvoutlethandbags2013.com.Moreover, while the staff of the Washington-based USCCB was"facilitating and coordinating" Monday's lawsuits, thebishops" public policy arm did not join the suits. China Polyurethane Tubing
Neitherdid a number of bishops who have been sharply critical of Obama,such as Chicago Cardinal Francis George, who explained that thearchdiocese "is still in the process of working out how itmight best initiate or join any legal action." Perhaps the most important player in the lawsuits filed Monday wasthe University of Notre Dame, which had angered many bishops bygranting Obama an honorary degree in 2009. Yet even Notre Dame'spresident, the Rev. John Jenkins, sounded more rueful thantriumphal when he said the school "filed this lawsuit neitherlightly nor gladly, but with sober determination." Privately, several bishops and Catholic leaders had already beenquestioning the USCCB's headlong charge against the contraceptionmandate. They worried that the campaign – which is built around a "Fortnight of Freedom" promotion that concludes with church services on July 4 – appears toally the hierarchy with the Republican Party, and also detractsfrom a number of other concerns like poverty and immigration. The lawsuits filed this week prompted a fresh round ofbehind-the-scenes complaints that emerged in a more diplomatic formin Blaire"s interview. Polyurethane Parts
For years, conservatives have held the upper hand in the USCCBwhile moderates and more progressive-minded prelates, fearing arebuke from Rome, held their tongues. But some believe that anoverreach on the contraception campaign may be shifting thatdynamic. "It was only a matter of time before some of the less archamong the bishops went public with their concerns the wayconservative bishops did in previous times when they thought theconference was too moderate," church analyst Michael SeanWinters wrote in the National Catholic Reporter on Wednesday,http://www.louboutinshoessalemall.com. "This is the dam that was waiting to be broken, andBlaire"s comments broke it." KRE/LEM END GIBSON.
