Hooray! There is still some freedom in America!
“The government has enforced the health care reform law very unevenly,
handing out exemptions to those it sees as its allies,” Rassbach said.
“Perhaps the worst part of the government’s approach is that it
seems to have decided that religious institutions are the only ones not to get
an exemption.”------------How true.If
there is one distinctive flavor that has permeated the Obama administrations
from day one it has to be one of subtle yet profound dictatorialism. It first
shows up in Obama's frequent use of personal pronouns in describing actions
and motivations of the administration, with the notable exceptions in cases
where he's more than happy to ascribe problems to Congress or Pres.
Bush.It is then more fully expressed in high-handed (mis)use of
executive powers in all sorts of ways. From trying to appoint people to
positions that normally require congressional oversight by disingenuously
claiming they were "recess" appointments, to cases described in the
quote above, where friends and allies are granted waivers and exemptions from
It appears every federal judge is an 'activist', eh? Each of them bent
on giving out christmas gifts.
This is a great day for American freedom. To try to compare this to judges
reading things into the 14th admendment that are not there is ludicrous. There
is no way to see how the HHS mandates do anything except violate the RFRA. They
clearly are a violation.
How close this can get is explained by Mr. Scott P. Richert of a Catholic
Newspaper :...If, in the midst of a tough reelection cycle,
President Obama is willing to attempt to redefine marriage, knowing that he will
alienate a significant number of voters... ...It is by no means farfetched to
think that his Justice Department, which has already attempted to tell
Christians that the federal government has the authority to decide who counts as
a minister in their churches, might pursue antidiscrimination lawsuits against
Christian churches that refuse to perform "gay marriages.""When words lose their meaning, people lose their freedom." The saying
is supposedly 2,500 years old, commonly ascribed (as so many such sayings are)
to Confucius. In any case, the ancient origins of this saying make it all too
clear that such battles never really end, and that freedom, too, is another word
that long ago lost its meaning, to be replaced with licentiousness...Nicely said, right ?
The cost of contraceptives is quite low maybe $10 a month. Does the government
have to do everything. Our slow jobs growth is a direct result of unnecessary
govt interference. Moreover our demographics for the US though better than
Europe and some areas of the world are not optimistic. Why people do not want
children is beyond me.
This shouldn't even be an issue. Period!Next thing you know,
the courts will decide what kind of toilet paper we can use.
What do religions have against contraception? What does this have to do with
being a good person or not?
@cjbDo you have a problem with personal responsibility?What does providing contraception have to do with being a good person?
