Washington Post Reports Tension Rises Between Catholic Bishops and Defunding of Grants ( Getting More Heated )

I am really baffled why the Obama administration if starting all these fights with the Catholic Bishops. Maybe they think politically they are a paper tiger. However if they think they are under real threat that paper tiger might get a tad more fiesty.

The Washington Post had lets say an interesting article today:

....On the trafficking contract, senior political appointees at HHS awarded the new grants to the bishops’ competitors despite a recommendation from career staffers that the bishops be funded based on scores by an independent review board, according to federal officials and internal HHS documents.
That prompted a protest from some HHS staffers, who said the process was unfair and politicized, individuals familiar with the matter said. Their concerns have been reported to the HHS inspector general’s office....

Well that does not sound good. Catholic Vote has more at :
