140. First, do Evangelicals run hospitals? Catholic Church does run many of them --
Second -- male hierarchy runs the Catholic Church --

and, yes, Catholic members may be quite liberal -- i.e., they support single payer

health care by huge majority -- and they want contraception, HIV testing -- birth

control and abortion covered! But, again, they do not run the hospitals nor the church --

and they are ignored by the Catholic Bishops, as well. In fact, the US Catholic Bishops

work to prevent any of the issues their members support from being enacted!

And, then, there are many Catholics and other Fundis who work in our nation's pharmacies

and are preventing women from getting Plan B/Emergency contraception because THEIR consciences

are in disagreement with birth control and abortion.

Unfortunately, many of our hospitals have been turned over to Catholic Church -

Hi No Elephants!
