Peoria bishop compares Obama’s actions to Stalin, Hitler
April 19, 2012
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.
(Partisan Ranger Note: I can’t help but wonder if the ADL doesn’t have the term “holocaust” copy written? They jump down anyone’s throat who mentions Nazi atrocities against any group other than the Jews. And lest we never forget, the Soviet Socialists butchered millions of Christians.)
