COLORADO BILL THREATENS CATHOLIC HOSPITALS

27 Feb

February 26, 2008

A bill has been introduced into the Colorado legislature that would inhibit the right of a Catholic order of nuns to purchase two non-Catholic hospitals in the Denver area. The Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System is seeking to acquire Lutheran and Good Samaritan hospitals, something the proposed legislation wants to thwart.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue supports the efforts of Denver Archbishop Charles J. Chaput and the Colorado Catholic Conference to help the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth succeed in their quest to obtain the two hospitals. Here is what he said:

“The idea that the Catholic Church wants to impose its will on the public is one of the oldest and most invidious canards ever expressed. Ironically, here we go again—except in reverse: It is the Church’s adversaries who want to impose their secular conception of health care on the Sisters. What is bothering some Colorado lawmakers is the right of Catholic hospitals not to perform operations, or make available certain drugs, which violate their ethical standards. [read more]

    DEAR FELLOW CATHOLICS
    COPY AND PASTE THIS LETTER THEN E- MAIL TO TEXAS AND OHIO CHURCHES (TEXAS FIRST)
    IN TIME FOR SUNDAY’S
    SERMONS
    AND VOTING.
    PLEASE HELP US HELP MIKE WIN!

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    DEAR FRIENDS:

    IN LIGHT OF RECENT POLITICAL DEVELOPMENTS, AND KNOWING HOW FAITHFUL YOU ARE TO GOD, FAMILY, AND FREEDOM, I WOULD LIKE YOU TO PLEASE EXAMINE MIKE HUCKABEE’S INCOMPARABLE, IMMACULATE, RECORD ON MY BEHALF,… AND CONSIDER HIM AS YOUR CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT !

    PLEASE READ THIS, EVEN IF YOU HAVE ALREADY VOTED.

    A VOTE (OR FINANCIAL HELP) FOR MIKE HUCKABEE IS A STEP TO PRESERVE AND IMPROVE AMERICA ..IT IS ESSENTIALLY A VOTE FOR ALL WE HOLD DEAR ! YOU KNOW I AM USUALLY NOT POLITICAL, BUT TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT WE AMERICANS CAN ALL LOSE IF WE AREN’T MOTIVATED AND INFORMED, AND CAREFUL:
    HILLARY WANTS TO TAKE AWAY OUR RIGHT TO EVEN SPEAK ABOUT ABORTION(cnn.com, issue :abortion) AND REINSTATE HER HUSBAND’S (BILL’S) VETO BY ALLOWING THE KILLING OF AMERICAN BABIES WHEN THEY ARE HALF IN AND HALF OUT OF A WOMAN’S BIRTH CANAL (PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION). PRESIDENT BUSH STOPPED THIS OVERTLY-HORRIFIC EVIL ACT.

    SHE WILL BRING IT BACK, IN ADDITION WANTS A BILL PREVENTING FREEDOM OF SPEECH. ANY TALK, COUNSEL OR HELP FOR THOSE WHO ARE CONSIDERING ABORTION WOULD BE ILLEGAL !!!!.UNLESS YOU WERE A GOVERNMENT ENTITY (REVERSE GLOBAL-GAG RULE)….. WOULD THIS AFFECT OUR PRIESTS IN CONFESSION ? (CHECK OUT CANDIDATES VIEWS ON ISSUES ON CNN.COM)….ESPECIALLY ABORTION !
    BARRACK HUSSEIN OBAMA : “THE TALK,TALK,TALK-SHOW HOST”, JUNIOR SENATOR , WHO HAS BEEN “APPROVED” OF ,BEING “UNPATRIOTIC”, AND REFUSED TO HONOR OUR SIMPLEST TOKENS OF RESPECT (OUR SACRED AMERICAN TRADITIONS), WANTS THE SAME RIGHT TO KILL AMERICAN OFFSPRING (WITH PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION ). HE ALSO STATES THAT HE WOULD LIKE TO “PARTNER WITH
    IRAQ” (REAL quote FROM SUPER TUESDAY-)…. HE IS “GONNA” CHANGE THINGS. UNLESS, AS HE STATED, VOTERS ELECT SOMEONE ELSE TO RUN “THIS THING”. (HIS REFERENCE TO AMERICA).
    McCain HAS BEEN WISHY WASHY IN GENERAL ON SOME KEY ISSUES. HE SLIPPED TODAY (FEB 29) AND CALLED HIMSELF A LIBERAL..ONE MUST WONDER, THOUGH…… SINCE HE PARTNERS WITH /HAS THE BACKING OF, A MAN WHO HATES CATHOLICS AND CALLS THEIR CHURCH A “WHORE”, AND “ANTI-CHRIST”. …………..

    IN ADDITION,ON THE RIGHT-TO-LIFE. THIS “MODERATE”( MC CAIN) HAS STATED THAT HE BELIEVED IN STEM CELL RESEARCH (USING ABORTED BABIES IN PETRI DISHES FOR RESEARCH). THIS IS HOW THE NAZIS PROCEEDED!

    POSSIBLY ROBBING VOTES FROM MIKE HUCKABEE, TOO… (IN WASHINGTON STATE) BY NOT DEMANDING THAT THEY COUNT ALL THE VOTES ?!? YES, SENATOR JOHN MC CAIN, IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE A HERO FOR HIS SACRIFICES. THIS IS IRREFUTABLE. YET WE MUST KNOW WHERE HE STANDS NOW. NOT JUST ON THE WAR IN IRAQ. CURRENTLY,HE IS REFUSING, (BY IGNORING A PETITION), TO DEBATE MIKE HUCKABEE IN A REPUBLICAN DEBATE.( I SPOKE WITH THE PERSON WHO BOOKED THE NATIONAL TV NETWORK, YESTERDAY). MR. MC CAIN HAS YET TO REPLY (TO THE PETITION).
    THIS, ALL OF IT, IS TOO REMINISCENT OF GEORGE ORWELL’S BOOK , ‘ANIMAL FARM’..
    2008 IS A YEAR FOR “CHANGE” ALRIGHT…BUT WHAT KIND, AND HOW IS IT BEING MARKETED IN ELECTION 2008 ?
    WHEN THE GOVERNMENT DECIDES WHO SHOULD LIVE AND DIE, WHO SHOULD SPEAK OR NOT, AND ABORTED BABIES CAN BE “FARMED” FOR RESEARCH,WE ARE SURELY GOING TO “CHANGE” !

    AS GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE SO WISELY AND ELOQUENTLY STATED: “GOVERNMENT DID NOT GIVE LIFE, AND GOVERNMENT CANNOT TAKE IT AWAY”.
    A PRUDENT MAN, AN HONEST CANDIDATE, IN D.C.! ? ! HELL WOULD FORBID !

    DO YOU KNOW MIKE HUCKABEE HAS READ PROVERBS EVERY DAY SINCE HE WAS IN HIS TEENS? I CONTEND,YOU CANNOT READ THE WORDS OF KING SOLOMON (PROVERBS) EVERY DAY AND NOT BE WISE.
    JESUS SAID: “BY THEIR FRUITS YOU SHALL KNOW THEM.”
    HE IS PRO-GOD, PRO-LIFE, PRO-AMERICA AND PRO-FAMILY…
    HUCKABEE, WANTS TO “TRIM THE FAT”. GO WITH A MAN WHO ISN’T PLAGUED BY SCANDAL OR SQUANDERED MONEY ! (HILLARY CAMPAIGN-131 MIL, CAMPAIGN HUCK-9 MIL )
    ELECTION 2008 …JUST FINE…BUSINESS AS USUAL…YOU’RE RIGHT… IT’S NOT BAD…IT’S HORRIFIC!

    WANT A REAL CHOICE? VOTE HUCKABEE IN 08 !!!!!, IF YOU ALREADY VOTED..DO YOURSELF A MAJOR FAVOR, JUST CHECK HIM OUT AT HIS WEBSITES, BLOGS, AND FACE BOOKS (ON THE COMPUTER) AND ON “YOU TUBE” THE COMPUTER-ACCESSED “VIDEOS”…BUT DON’T DELAY , DO IT TODAY! . HE IS ROCK SOLID !

    HE IS THE TRUE CONSERVATIVE. OH, BY THE WAY, MC CAIN IS TRYING TO IGNORE A HUGE PETITION FOR A REPUBLICAN DEBATE WITH THE REMAINING CANDIDATES…EVEN THOUGH HIS REPUBLICAN CONSTITUENTS WOULD LOVE ONE !
    THIS UPCOMING VOTE IN TEXAS IS CRUCIAL …TEXAS CAN CHANGE THE TIDE AND EVERYTHING IN THIS ELECTION, TOWARDS MIKE HUCKABEE ,AND REALLY SAVE THIS COUNTRY!

    WHEN COMMUNISTIC SYMPATHIZERS (read:OBAMAS COMMUNIST TIES,WIKIPEDIA), AND NAZI-LIKE TACTICS RULE THE DEMOCRATS AND THE REPUBLICANS SUPPORT STEM-CELL (EXPERIMENTS ON HUMAN FETUSES)…WHEN WE
    HAVE NO VIABLE, TRUE CONSERVATIVE VOICE IN “JOHN MC CAIN AND COMPANY” … THEN WE MUST VOTE AND HELP MIKE HUCKABEE , OR WE WILL HAVE HELL TO PAY.
    HUCKABEE—CONSISTENTLY PRO-AMERICA, PRO-FREEDOM AND PRO-LIFE.

    GOD DID GIVE US LIFE..LET US GO FORTH TO HELP HIS TRUE SERVANT, MR MIKE HUCKABEE MAKE IT ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE !!

    PS: YOU KNOW, I HAVE NEVER BEEN POLITICALLY-INCLINED BEFORE THIS ELECTION..BUT I BELIEVE WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL THAT EVERYTHING WE VALUE MAY BE A STAKE IF WE ALL DON’T HELP MIKE HUCKABEE GET THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION !

    HE IS A WISE AND HONORABLE MAN AND THE ONLY REMAINING CANDIDATE WHO HAS EVER EVEN GOVERNED !! (VOTED AS A TOP GOVERNOR -10 YEARS) REMEMBER THE ALAMO ???? —AMERICANS OVERPOWERED 40 TO ONE ! REMEMBER WHO WON?
    GO TEXAS ! GO TEXANS !*
    VOTE HUCKABEE! GET THE WORD TO THE PRIESTS, PAPERS AND PREACHERS, AND PARADERS ! PROCLAIM IT FROM THE PULPIT…PRAY IT IN THE PEWS! AMEN ! STICK IT IN THE HYMNAL BOOKS .
    CIRCULATE THIS LETTER OR ONE OF YOUR OWN …WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO REALLY HELP THIS MAN, HELP US, IF HEAVEN WILL HAVE IT’S WAY.

    PEACE BE WITH YOU,
    BONNIE BUCKLAW-ORTIZ

    GOD’S KINGDOM COME. GOD’S WILL BE DONE. ON EARTH,AS IT IS IN
    HEAVEN———————————
