How did President Obama get so many anti-Catholic organizations to agree with his contraceptive compromise?
They have to be anti-Catholic since "Obama has declared war on the Catholic religion.
"President Obama has shown us that he is willing to rise above the partisan fray to deliver an actual policy solution that both meets the health care needs of all employees and respects the religious liberty of Catholic institutions." James Salt, executive director of Catholics United 2/10/12
"We Applaud The Willingness Of The Administration To Work With Religious Organizations To Find A Solution Acceptable To All Parties." Rev. John I. Jenkins, president of the University of Notre Dame 2/10/12
“The Catholic Health Association is very pleased with the White House announcement that a resolution has been reached that protects the religious liberty and conscience rights of Catholic institutions.” Sister Carol Keehan, the president and CEO of the Catholic Health Association 2/10/12
“The Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) acknowledges and appreciates the compromise that President Obama has made to accommodate religious institutions in regard to the birth control mandate under the Affordable Care Act. We commend the Obama Administration for its willingness to work with us on moving toward a solution, and we look forward to working out the details of these new regulations with the White House.” Press statement from the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities, a coalition of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States 2/10/12
"Catholic Charities USA welcomes the Administration's attempt to meet the concerns of the religious community and we look forward to reviewing the final language. We are hopeful that this is a step in the right direction and are committed to continuing our work to ensure that our religious institutions will continue to be granted the freedom to remain faithful to our beliefs, while also being committed to providing access to quality healthcare for our 70,000 employees and their families across the country."

He didn't,,not anywhere in your links does it say the "agree"?,,they appreciate his compromise and concern.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of likely Catholic voters nationwide at least somewhat disapprove of the president’s job performance, while 40% at least somewhat approve. But the passion’s on the side of those who don’t like the job he’s doing: 44% Strongly Disapprove versus 19% who Strongly Approve.
Fifty-four percent (54%) of Catholics voted for Obama in November 2008. However, Republican hopeful Mitt Romney currently leads the president among Catholic voters by a 52% to 35% margin. Among all voters, however, President Obama leads Romney and all Republican hopefuls.
