The Camel’s Nose
The tale of ‘The Camel’s Nose’ is cautionary tale that has become a metaphor for the subtle erosion of principles and freedoms. Once you allow the camel to get his nose inside the tent, it is only a matter of time before the whole camel is inside…and there’s no room left for you!
Obama’s assault on the Catholic Church is a Camel’s Nose approach to shackling and controlling religious (read: Judeo-Christian) beliefs and principles.
An incestuous cabal of atheists, Death Eaters (abortion fanatics), Democrat opportunists (Barbara Boxer, Nancy Piglosi, et al), and other far Left kooks realize the issue of forcing the Catholic Church to offer three key “services” will get the camel’s nose firmly in the tent…and provide the means to get the rest of the camel inside very quickly!
Notice that the Left/media is focusing on ONE “service”: contraception. It is ubiquitous…literally. EVERY drugstore, supermarket and convenience store has racks and racks of condoms…making “contraception” so pervasive, that objecting to it on any level seems archaic. And that is EXACTLY how the Obama Regime wants to paint the Catholic Church.
The other two “services” are NOT ubiquitous…yet. “Sterilization” and “Abortion drugs” do not (yet) have their own aisle in the supermarket…for they are NOT pervasive and widely accepted.
That’s why you are ONLY hearing about “Contraception” in the news right now…and why everybody who believes in our 1st Amendment right to freedom OF religion, be they of faith or not, should be screaming about the other two!
If the camel’s get his nose inside the tent on the issue of forcing the Catholic Church to provide “Contraception”, then “Sterilization” and “Abortion” come with it. They are intentionally linked.
And if the Catholic Church can be forced to provide abortions…even just “morning after” abortions…then the rest of the camel will be inside the tent almost immediately. And the REST of the camel consists of this: ALL Jewish and Christian organizations of any kind will be under the control of the Federal government…and our freedom OF religion will be outside the tent!
The tale of Camel’s Nose…for those who might not know it:
One cold night, as an Arab sat in his tent, a camel gently thrust his nose under the flap and looked in. “Master,” he said, “let me put my nose in your tent. It’s cold and stormy out here.” “By all means,” said the Arab, “and welcome” as he turned over and went to sleep.
A little later the Arab awoke to find that the camel had not only put his nose in the tent but his head and neck also. The camel, who had been turning his head from side to side, said, “I will take but little more room if I place my forelegs within the tent. It is difficult standing out here.” “Yes, you may put your forelegs within,” said the Arab, moving a little to make room, for the tent was small.
Finally, the camel said, “May I not stand wholly inside? I keep the tent open by standing as I do.” “Yes, yes,” said the Arab. “Come wholly inside. Perhaps it will be better for both of us.” So the camel crowded in. The Arab with difficulty in the crowded quarters again went to sleep. When he woke up the next time, he was outside in the cold and the camel had the tent to himself.
