Obama-Hitler link claimed

Peoria bishop's Hitler, Stalin references in homily stir controversy

An Illinois bishop's mention of Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin in an April 14 homily calling Catholics to "heroic Catholicism, not casual Catholicism" in the face of current threats to religious liberty in the United States has stirred widespread controversy.

After listing several governments throughout history that "have tried to force Christians to huddle and hide only within the confines of their churches," Peoria Bishop Daniel R. Jenky said President Barack Obama "now seems intent on following a similar path."

He warned that Catholic schools, hospitals, and Newman centres "could easily be shut down" rather than comply with the government's mandate that most health plans cover the cost of contraception, sterilization, and some drugs that can induce abortion.
