The Dog Is On the Roof Again

Gail Collins is spot on again. She does not rant and rave, as I would like to, about antiquated church doctrine driven by theologians from the middle ages. Under Catholic teachings the use of birth control is a mortal sin. So, according to Catholic teachings, most of the Catholics in the US are going to hell. If heaven is filled with the self-righteous know-it-alls, it can't be much fun.

But there is one problem with Gail's article. She failed to include even an oblique mention of Mitt Romney's drive to Canada with his dog on the roof of the family car. And there is no good reason for not including it. Driving to Canada with the dog on the roof shows about as much prior planning as having health insurance without coverage for birth control.

So why don't we just call the push against Obamacare's (and yes, let's be proud to call it that) inclusion of birth control coverage the "Dog on the Roof" provision.
