Robert Park is another commentator for whom I have become fond. His roughly weekly missive What's New today included this paragraph on natural law:
NATURAL LAW: CATHOLIC INSTITUTIONS SUE THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.
The lawsuit argues that the Obama healthcare plan violates the religious freedom of Catholic institutions by requiring them to cover the contraception costs of employees. In the eyes of the Church, artificial contraception violates the doctrine of Natural Law. If sexual intercourse cannot lead to procreation it removes the sovereignty of God over Creation. Try thinking that through while having sex. What are the odds of the Church winning its suit? The Church hasn't won a case based on Natural Law since 615 when the Inquisition forced Galileo to recant his belief in a heliocentric universe.
