A week after Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, stated that the Obama administration’s most recent “compromise” on the HHS mandate fails to preserve the religious liberty of Catholic individuals and Catholic institutions, the president of the Catholic Health Association (CHA) stated that the proposal represents “substantial progress.” (source)

So what progress did the compromised-compromise make relating to Catholic hospitals? Well the new rules make absolutely zero changes regarding Catholic hospitals. The changes made some clarifications regarding entities run directly from a “house of worship”. So for an organization that is suppose to represent Catholic healthcare says there is “substantial progress” when there is zero progress relating to what they lobby for.

Although this is SOP for the CHA.

Throughout this sometimes challenging period, CHA has remained in constant dialogue with the leadership of the Unites States Conference of Catholic Bishops, individual Bishops who had concerns and suggestions and the Administration. We believe that our commitment to dialogue to an acceptable solution is matched by all parties and we are committed to completing resolution of this issue. (source)

Yes that “constant dialogue” with the USCCB has born so much fruit in that they have opposite characterizations of the changes made. This is the same tactic of all dissident style organizations in that “constant dialogue” means absolutely nothing.

  2. dialogue (n.) early 13c., “literary work consisting of a conversation between two or more persons,” from Old French dialoge, from Latin dialogus, from Greek dialogos “conversation, dialogue”

    The key being “logos”, which the CHA sadly has abandoned….

  4. How about this for some dialogue:

    While Cardinal Dolan and Archpishop Lori have sounded the alarm on the immorality of keeping our old health insurance under the new system, Pope Benedict XVI has given us two very good options: (1) Collaborate with one of the three Protestant health-sharing minsitries, or (2) Form our own “parish-based minsitries.”
