Peoria Bishop Compares Obama to Stalin, Hitler


The Anti-Defamation League wants an apology from Peoria's bishop following a recent homily comparing President Barack Obama's policies to those of despots Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.

During the message at St. Mary's Cathedral in Peoria, Roman Catholic Bishop Daniel Jenky contended social services for Catholics could be eliminated if Obama's directive to include contraceptives in health insurance continues. Jenky went on to compare the actions to past cultural wars against the Catholic Church.

“Remember that in past history other governments have tried to force Christians to huddle and hide only within the confines of their churches like the first disciples locked up in the Upper Room,” Jenky said.

In comparison, he pointed to Otto von Bismarck's "culture war against the Roman Catholic Church, closing down every Catholic school and hospital, convent and monastery in Imperial Germany."

4. Roman Catholic church history of intolerance


Lets see the Roman Catholic Church has a history of beheadings, burning people at the stake ,drownings, burning down places of worship, exiling people from their countries, and sentencing people as galley slaves as punishment for their religious believes, and this was to other Christains.

So were does this guy get off comparing Obama to Hitler.When the Roman Catholic church was the government it was just about as evil as Hitler or any other tyrant. I mean no offense to Catholics. I have many friends, and relatives who are Catholic, but the point this guy needs consider the history of his religious organization before making ridiculous comparisons to our president. Btw there is no scripture to condemn birth control.
