“Progressive” Catholics like Dionne aren’t worried about contraception

Joan Walsh is misreading EJ Dionne here; the problem isn’t with contraception, but with the fact that Obama is requiring the Catholic church to do anything at all for its workers that it doesn’t want to do.

Dionne has probably never had to take a job he didn’t like because he needed the money, and certainly didn’t have to worry about spending even more money on health care than his male counterparts because his employer wanted him to get pregnant. To him, it’s just an issue of doctrine, and the Church should be allowed to take whatever federal money it wants without being required to do anything at all for its workers since those workers can all just get columns in the Washington Post like he did if they don’t like their jobs.
