More "church and state" silliness regarding Stupak

Check out (and then groan at) this "animated cartoon" in The Washington Post.  What we are seeing, I fear, is an ugly re-emergence of Blanshard-ism.  "The Bishops", or "The Catholic Church", is -- for some -- simply an all-purpose bug-a-boo; that "the Bishops" speak for or support something is -- for the new Blanshards -- seen as, and used as, a reason to oppose that something. Their support for something is presumed to be part of a nefarious plot against American values (unless, of course, their support is convenient, in which case it is happily exploited).  Troubling.
