The MSM tries to Vatican II the Hobby Lobby Decision

If you turn to any lib­eral site or cable chan­nel a ton of talk is being given to the dis­sent of Jus­tice Gins­burg

It’s quite a switch from what they were say­ing about her a few months ago:

TPM: Top Lib­eral Scholar Calls On Jus­tice Gins­burg To Resign

National Review: Jus­tice Gins­burg Resign Already

Daily Kos: Ruth Bader Gins­burg — I love you. Please resign right now.

or even three days ago at the Huff­in­g­ton Post:

Thank You for Your Ser­vice, But It’s Time to Go Jus­tice Ginsburg

It’s also inter­est­ing to see their sud­den inter­est in Supreme Court dis­sents, some­thing I don’t recall a lot of media inter­est in before:

It brings to mind how once Democ­rats were in the minor­ity in the house, sud­denly what a house minor­ity leader had to say was worth covering.

While both of these things are of some inter­est what I find most inter­est­ing is the tac­tic because as a Catholic it’s so familiar.

After Vat­i­can 2 and Humanae Vitae the left in the Church and the media who sup­ported them were dis­ap­pointed by the result. While there were changes in the Mass and an increase in the use of the laity it was not what they had dreamed of. So rather than talk­ing about what doc­trines actu­ally were and what the coun­sel doc­u­ments actu­ally said they cre­ated a false nar­ra­tive aided and abet­ted by many in min­istry who pre­ferred the church in their own image rather than the church as it was.

Thanks to the get along to go along atti­tude of many who knew bet­ter entire gen­er­a­tions was either cat­e­chised falsely or not at all and the church & soci­ety paid for it.

This is the goal of the left in the Gins­berg dis­sent to cre­ate a de facto nar­ra­tive in their minds sim­i­lar to the Bush Gore elec­tion, and by that nar­ra­tive hope to effect both how the issue is reported and per­haps even how some of the lib­eral judges rule on future cases as more Chris­t­ian busi­ness­men assert their rights.

Of course this is not the 70’s. Both the inter­net exists as does a strong cadre of con­ser­v­a­tives ready to push back, and the real­ity of the deci­sion in encoded in US law so don’t expect the kind of legal apos­tasy that we saw in the church but rest assured they’ll give it the old pagan try.

It’s also interesting to see their sudden interest in Supreme Court dissents, something I don’t recall a lot of media interest in before:

While there were changes in the Mass and an increase in the use of the laity it was not what they had dreamed of. So rather than talking about what doctrines actually were and what the counsel documents actually said they created a false narrative aided and abetted by many in ministry who preferred the church in their own image rather than the church as it was.

Thanks to the get along to go along attitude of many who knew better entire generations was either catechised falsely or not at all and the church & society paid for it.

This is the goal of the left in the Ginsberg dissent to create a de facto narrative in their minds similar to the Bush Gore election, and by that narrative hope to effect both how the issue is reported and perhaps even how some of the liberal judges rule on future cases as more Christian businessmen assert their rights.

Of course this is not the 70’s. Both the internet exists as does a strong cadre of conservatives ready to push back, and the reality of the decision in encoded in US law so don’t expect the kind of legal apostasy that we saw in the church but rest assured they’ll give it the old pagan try.
