All weekend I saw news items about the US Catholic Church resisting the Obama Administration over “CONTRACEPTION”. When the story came up on the television, across the screen there would be a graphic saying, inevitably, “Contraception”.
No. This is not principally about “contraception”. Once the media or White House frames the conflict in those terms, the issue becomes confused.
The conflict is over the 1st Amendment and the imposition of the Executive Branch on the exercise of religion.
One comment I heard was a good reminder of how the media will confuse the public and distract from the real point. When Pres. Clinton had his problem over Monica Lewinsky, the media turned it into a problem about sex. But the real problem was far more serious.
