“An Illinois Roman Catholic diocese whose bishop compared President Barack Obama’s health care policies to actions taken by Adolf Hitler said Thursday that the comments, which prompted outside demands for an apology and investigation, were “historical context” in an ongoing debate over religious liberty.

Peoria Bishop Daniel Jenky said during a Sunday homily at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Peoria that Obama is following previous governments that “tried to force Christians to huddle and hide only within the confines of their churches.”

“Hitler and Stalin, at their better moments, would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services and health care,” [he said]. “In clear violation of our First Amendment rights, Barack Obama _ with his radical, pro-abortion and extreme secularist agenda _ now seems intent on following a similar path.”" — Copyright 2012 The Associated Press
