Pope Paul VI Prophesied The HHS Mandate on Contraception

Catholic Bishops and others have been railing against the Obama adminstration for attacking religious liberty by forcing Catholic institutions to go against the clear teachings of the church in supplying contraception to their employees.  Father Z's blog has one posting after another attacking the Obama administration on this issue.  But even he had a posting quoting from Humanae Vitae, which says that if contraception is allowed to be commonly used, government forces would start using it against the people.

From Humanae Vitae:
Finally, careful consideration should be given to the danger of this power passing into the hands of those public authorities who care little for the precepts of the moral law. Who will blame a government which in its attempt to resolve the problems affecting an entire country resorts to the same measures as are regarded as lawful by married people in the solution of a particular family difficulty? Who will prevent public authorities from favoring those contraceptive methods which they consider more effective? Should they regard this as necessary, they may even impose their use on everyone. It could well happen, therefore, that when people, either individually or in family or social life, experience the inherent difficulties of the divine law and are determined to avoid them, they may give into the hands of public authorities the power to intervene in the most personal and intimate responsibility of husband and wife.
If you have never read Humanae Vitae, please click on this link and do so.  It will be an eye-opening experience as to why there is so much evil in our world.  Pope Paul VI, led by the Holy Spirit, gave a sober warning to all of us.  We have no excuse.  We can try blaming Obama, the liberal media, entertainment, etc. etc., but we really have no one to blame but ourselves.  First and foremost, those Catholic authorities who told us that we did not have to follow Humanae Vitae but instead follow our consciences, will have to bear much of the blame.  The use of artificial contraception lies at the heart of most of the world's problems.
