Viagra vs. Birth Control



To be fair, no one ever said the Catholic Church wasn't hypocritical...or the GOP for that matter.

Via Daily Kos

According to the Catholic Church, birth control is "intrinsically evil" and requiring insurance companies to cover it is a "grave moral concern." But a man's right to take magical hard-on pills, like Viagra, and to have them covered by his insurance? Why, that's sacred:

The answer on Viagra coverage is usually yes, Catholic leaders say. And they argue that's neither hypocritical nor sexist.

Procreation is something the Catholic church encourages. And Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs can be of help.

Procreation, AND those old, old priests need help keeping up with those young, young boys.

Darrell Issa to hold Congressional hearing on how birth control makes religious zealots sad

Republican Rep. Darrell Issa never met a waste of taxpayer time and dollars he didn't like, as long as he thinks it will "be good theater."

AND,

Poll: Even church-going Catholics reject Republican jihad against birth control

Republicans: 50-44 (support-oppose)
Independents: 64-26
Moderates: 68-22
Women: 72-20
Catholics: 67-25
Church-going Catholics: 48-43

LOL: I like the comment on the general poll: "So two out of three Americans reject the GOP's anti-contraception position — and just one in four want to stay in the 13th century."
