I have a confession.  I sometimes post on social media just to see the diversity of reactions.  I consider it testing for Informed Not Inflamed.

Check out my Facebook page on Sunday night December 1st for my latest test. 

I posted an article about Cardinal Timothy Dolan’s remarks -- opposing Obamacare. Primarily, he – and the Church – are against businesses being forced to push no-cost contraception – something Catholic institutions would be against – due to Catholic teachings – in the health care policies they have to offer now under Obamacare.

I said that Dolan’s remarks defied logic. I wrote:

So you’re against abortion.  Ok.  But you’re against contraception too?  Talk about either/or stupidity.  You want to believe it, fine. We don’t.  We want a reasonable society.

Someone said that seemed a little inflamed, on my part.  Maybe so.  I would consider it impassioned – as were the responses.

The most impassioned were for those in favor of Cardinal Dolan and the Catholic Church position.

One person wrote it is about not having sex before marriage. Another wrote that Dolan has to defend Church teachings.  And some felt my comments were pro-abortion.
