Catholics restrict how paycheck spent?

The Catholic church's restrictions on contraception has been viewed as women's rights, health, or religious issues; but there might be another way of looking at it. I don't know all the particulars and whether this applies; but employer-provided health care is an employee benefit, it's part of an employee's compensation. So, in a way isn't the Catholic church ---based on religious beliefs--- trying to restrict what women can use their compensation/paychecks for?

Marriage not for procreation? Gay couples could get married in order to adopt children together.

The concept that Thom mentioned of marriage being between a rapist and his victim in Biblical times goes even deeper than he said. There's a part of the Bible that allows a war bride to divorce her husband under some circumstance on the presumption that the husband raped her. So the Bible condones the marriage, and because of the aforementioned presumption, it also condones spousal rape.

"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
