On ‘Compromise’

Lawyer Ed Mechmann writes:

 

We’re talking now with the Administration and their mandate that all employers, including Catholic institutions, will be forced to offer their employees health coverage that includes sterilization, abortion-inducing drugs, and contraception — free of charge.

Having inadvertently dragged the Church into electoral year politics, the Administration has now started talking about “compromise” to take some of the heat off.  To most normal people, the word “compromise” means that people sit down, talk to each other as equals, and try to work out something that will respect each other’s beliefs and values.  An online dictionary defines it as “a settlement of differences by mutual concessions”.

But the Administration seems to think that the word means “surrender your values, be quiet, and do what we tell you”.

There is much more detail here — it is worth reading and passing on.
