Time: Catholic Bishops Should Go to Jail If They Want to Protest Obamacare Mandates

On the Time Ideas blog, Harvard administrator Erika Christakis dismissed all the “hysteria with a fever pitch” about religious liberty, insisting that if the Catholic bishops don’t like the Obama administration making them pay for contraceptives, abortifacients, and sterilizations, they could do the MLK/Mandela thing and go to prison in an act of civil disobedience. That’s the way liberals say “put up or shut up.”

“Let’s see what our society would look like if we all had the luxury of imposing our unfettered will,” Christakis lectured, as if that’s not what Obama is doing. “At a minimum, the Catholic bishops and employers resisting contraceptive coverage should be willing to pay for the care of all those unwanted children. Or perhaps they’d be willing to spend some time in jail in protest. At my taxpaying expense, of course.”
