Time Magazine Tells Catholic Bishops to Go To Jail

February 22, 2012

Citing Henry David Thoreau and Martin Luther King as examples, Erika Christakis suggested as follows to Catholic opponents of funding abortions and contraception.

Let’s see what our society would look like if we all had the luxury of imposing our unfettered will. At a minimum, the Catholic bishops and employers resisting contraceptive coverage should be willing to pay for the care of all those unwanted children. Or perhaps they’d be willing to spend some time in jail in protest. At my taxpaying expense, of course.

Christakis may be in for a rude surprise when Christian clergy as well as orthodox Jewish supporters take her up on her challenge. The demonisation of religious faith and the marginalisation of believers has been advancing at an a dizzying pace in America. The liberal mainstream has its own religious canon of homosexual rights, abortion rights and the holy wall of the separation of church and state. Going against this modern day secular canon carries with it a lot of risk.

If the religious right in this country is given the opportunity to go to jail for its beliefs, that will be the day that the tide starts to turn.It will be a battle for the hearts and minds of the American people. And the secular humanists will lose.

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore

THOU hast made me known to friends whom I knew not. Thou hast given me seats in homes not my own. Thou hast brought the distant near and made a brother of the stranger. I am uneasy at heart when I have to leave my accustomed shelter; I forgot that there abides the old in the new, and that there also thou abidest.
Through birth and death, in this world or in others, wherever thou leadest me it is thou, the same, the one companion of my endless life who ever linkest my heart with bonds of joy to the unfamiliar. When one knows thee, then alien there is none, then no door is shut. Oh, grant me my prayer that I may never lose the bliss of the touch of the One in the play of the many.

Rabindranath Tagore (Gitangeli)
