D'ya Think Bp Bruskewitz Watches Fox?

As if more evidence was needed that Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz is the worst bishop in America, and that it is a cause for scandal that he is still gloriously reigning in Lincoln, at yesterday's USCCB meeting Bishop Bruskewitz took to the microphone. He said he had not fully read "Obamacare" which is a derogatory way of refering to the Affordable Care Act. But, he then said "somebody told me" that the Affordable Care Act included an exemption for all Muslims, because Mulims believe insurance is akin to gambling. What?

Even among the deranged rantings one frequently encounters at Fox News, I had not heard this particular line of questioning, although it nicely fits in with the ugliest, most akin to 19th century Nativism, line of attack on President Obama. Lump "Muslim" and "Obama" in the same sentence whenever possible. Suggest Muslims get preferential treatment denied to "real" Americans. Perhaps at today's session, Bishop Bruskewitz can ask the bishop of Honolulu if he has really seen Obama's birth certificate.

Bishop Bruskewitz is an embarrassment. Here is a link to the video. Bruskewitz takes the stage at about 1:31.
