The President becomes Henry VIII

Feb. 11 at 9:10pm

The inimitable Mark Steyn gives some historical perspective to the American understanding of religious liberty.

The president of the United States has decided to go Henry VIII on the Church's medieval ass. Whatever religious institutions might profess to believe in the matter of "women's health," their pre-eminences, jurisdictions, privileges, authorities and immunities are now subordinate to a one-and-only supreme head on earth determined to repress, redress, restrain and amend their heresies. 

If Obama is playing Henry VIII, let's hope there are many in our ranks ready to step into the role of Thomas More.  

This might be a good time for us all to watch A Man For All Seasons again.
