When Did Women Become So GODLESS That ‘Religious Freedom’ Is Somehow Tantamount To ‘War On Women’???

July 3, 2014

If you allow the left to frame the narrative for you, women NEVER had reproductive freedom until Barack Obama – their lord, their master, their savior and their god – GAVE it to them.

And of course now – because of conservatives and mostly of course because of conservative men who clearly hate women unless they’re a) barefoot and b) pregnant – just took it away from them.

Hillary Clinton’s tirade borders beyond idiotic and reaches evil:

Hillary Clinton Sees “Elements” Of Hobby Lobby Ruling In Treatment Of Women In Islamic World…

Does this woman ever think before she speaks?

Via BuzzFeed:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Monday called the Supreme Court’s ruling that employers with religious objections can refuse to pay for insurance coverage for contraception “deeply disturbing.” […]

During her remarks on the topic, Clinton said “this element” is seen in foreign countries where women are deprived of rights. “Among those rights is control over their bodies, control over their own health care, control over the size of their families,” she said. “It is a disturbing trend that you see in a lot of societies that are very unstable, anti-democratic, and frankly prone to extremism.”

“Part of the reason I was so adamant about including women and girls in our foreign policy, not as a luxury but as a central issue, is because they’re often the canaries in the mine,” Clinton said. “You watch women and girls being deprived of their rights, some of them never have them, some of them lose them. Among those rights is control over their bodies, control over their own health care, control over the size of their families. It is a disturbing trend that you see in a lot of societies that are very unstable, anti-democratic, and frankly prone to extremism. Where women and women’s bodies are used as the defining and unifying issue to bring together people — men — to get them to behave in ways that are disadvantageous to women but which prop up them because of their religion, their sect, their tribe, whatever. So to introduce this element into our society… it’s very troubling that a sales clerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employer’s health care plan because her employer doesn’t think she should be using contraception.”

I want to point out a very important fact: to the extent that this Supreme Court decision is truly sweeping – as many liberals are claiming it is – they have only THEMSELVES and their false messiah Barack Hussein Obama to blame.  Because Hobby Lobby IN POINT OF FACT – demon-possessed liberal liars to the contrary – OFFERED CONTRACEPTION in its generous health coverage for its workers.  In point of fact, they offered SIXTEEN DIFFERENT FORMS OF BIRTH CONTROL.

If you claim that Hobby Lobby was denying birth control to women, you are simply a LIAR without shame, without honor, without virtue, without integrity of any kind.  You are utterly immune from reality.  It is so false it’s evil.

The ONLY thing they refused to pay for was abortifacients that aren’t “birth control” but rather kill babies.  These drugs that Hobby Lobby opposes don’t prevent conception; they end pregnancy by terminating the baby.

The drugs Hobby Lobby opposed do NOT prevent a woman from releasing eggs (ovulating); they do NOT prevent sperm from reaching or fertilizing an egg; they act on the zygote – read BABY – AFTER conception.

Hillary Clinton is a mentally- and morally-diseased LIAR for claiming that Hobby Lobby denies contraception.  And that is precisely what she did:

“it’s very troubling that a sales clerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employer’s health care plan because her employer doesn’t think she should be using contraception.”

Is Hillary Clinton simply ignorant?  Does she not know that Hobby Lobby provided every actual form of legitimate contraception that WASN’T an abortion-causing drug for their employees???  I don’t think she’s stupid; I THINK SHE’S A LIAR.  She KNOWS what she is saying is false – just as most of the talking heads on the left know what they are saying is false – but then she and they dishonesty say it anyway.

Because in fascism – as in ALL godless systems – the ends always justify the means.  And it is only out of “religious values” that include the sanctity of human life that keeps someone from lying out of their ass whenever it aids their self-centered cause.

I am so beyond sick of the pathological dishonesty and wickedness of the left.

Do you want to know something else?  To whatever extent this case has the sort of sweeping, draconian results that the left is screaming about, there is ONE PERSON to blame: Barack Hussein Obama.

Obama should have allowed Hobby Lobby and businesses which share Hobby Lobby’s moral and religious values to provide the abundant birth control that they WERE ALREADY PROVIDING and simply granted them the waiver from the abortifacients that they requested.

Had Barack Obama been willing to listen to reason, been able to reach compromise like a grown-up rather than being the rabid ideologue he has always been, there would have BEEN no Supreme Court decision and there would have BEEN no sweeping decision that the left is weeping over.  But Barack Obama is a demon-possessed Nazi fascist who MUST have his way and pushed it to beyond the breaking point.

Which is why Obama now stands ALONE in the entire history of our republic as the ONLY president who has suffered THIRTEEN UNANIMOUS SUPREME COURT DECISIONS AGAINST HIM.  That’s right: thirteen times, the Supreme Court has told America that Barack Obama is a rabid ideologue fascist who violated the Constitution again… and then again… and then again…. and then again… ad nauseum.

But, nope.  Obama was as Nazi with this case as Hitler was Nazi with his invasion of the Soviet Union.  And so he just suffered the “major blow” that liberals are now whining about as they weep and wail in their sackcloth and ashes.

If these businesses start denying ALL birth control, and that upsets you, you make damn sure you take it out on THE DEMOCRATS WHO CAUSED THE CRISIS by their rabid fascist refusal to compromise with morality or reality.  But wheat liberals will do instead – as we can see from all the lies and slander and propaganda – is to try to depict the people whose “crime” has been trying to make a rabid ideologue president listen to REASON for once in his bubbled life.

But it is the question as to how liberal women burned their Bibles when they burned their bras that I really want to talk about.

I want to know when the hell “women” decided that to allow ANYONE else to worship the God of the Bible and protect the sanctity of human life constituted a direct attack upon their “womanhood.”  I want to know when “godless” and “woman” became synonyms – as they very clearly are to this particular demon-possessed liberal woman, Hillary Clinton.

When did being a “woman” mean hating God, hating Christ, hating the Holy Bible, hating religion and hating babies???

How is it that women have morally degenerated to this point, when they have become such idiots that they are incapable of distinguishing between the FACTS that someone ELSE not being forced to pay for something is NOT equivalent to criminalizing the thing that they can on their own still go out and buy if they want it???  When did women become so evil that like Hillary Clinton they can’t differentiate between people who want to preserve the sanctity of human life by following the Judeo-Christian worldview as well as the Hippocratic Oath that shaped culture (“I will not give to a woman a pessary to procure an abortion“) with the murderous Taliban???  Since when did women become such complete moral imbeciles that they cannot tell the difference between Jesus of Nazareth and Hippocrates and a Taliban terrorist???

I know the above isn’t true simply because I know that N.O.W. has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with most actual WOMEN.  I know a lot of women in my church, for instance, who are every bit as outraged by the baby-massacring left as I am.  But from the point of view of the Democratic Party, from the point of view of the secular humanist, progressive liberal ideology that Democrats embrace and from the point of view of the mainstream media that serves as the propagandist for the aforementioned political party and the aforementioned worldview, it IS true.  So I ask from their perspective, when did women become so stupid, so ignorant and so evil that they are little more than the mindless herd animals that liberalism essential says they are???

Frothing Liberals AGAIN Document They Are FASCISTS With Their Rabid Response To The Hobby Lobby Case

July 1, 2014

It’s always an amazing thing to watch liberals being hypocrites.  Liberalism is ABJECT personal moral hypocrisy; liberals are people who say what is always fascist for thee to do is never fascist for me to do.

Under the warped doctrine of “separation of church and state,” liberals have attacked and successfully purged most vestiges of God and Judeo-Christianity from society.  No Judeo-Christian practice or doctrine or belief can have anything whatsoever to do with culture.  But then you take liberal’s Church of the Ungodly Nazi Bureaucrat, and suddenly on their view the church IS the state and the state IS the church.  So you can’t have a cross representing veterans who gave their lives on public land, but you can sure force the owners of businesses to violate their most deeply held moral beliefs by exploiting the raw, naked force of government.

Liberals are either pathologically stupid people or pathologically evil people – or both, as I believe.  You can surely see this again in the shrill, unhinged rhetoric flying around from the left in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision.

If I had a nickel for every liberal who came out and claimed that somehow the Supreme Court just took away birth control from women, I would be a very rich man.  When the truth of the matter is that birth control is as available today as it was before yesterday.  The only thing that has been taken away is the “right” of liberals to impose THEIR religious beliefs onto the owners of businesses who have different religious beliefs when it comes to abortion.

To wit, Hobby Lobby – long before this court decision – had been providing SIXTEEN different forms of birth control to female employees as part of their generous health care coverage.  The only forms of “birth control” they didn’t want to pay for were abortifacients which do NOT prevent a conception but kill a baby.  And the members of the Church of the Ungodly Nazi Bureaucrat screamed, “Nein!  Nein! Nein!  You WILL cover our religious right to murder babies!!!  Our god (human government) has the divine power to FORCE you to kill babies for us!!!”

You need to understand why liberals get into such an unhinged frenzy.  For them, human government is God and God is human government.  They have no other gods before human government.  And so when they are confronted with a ruling like this one, well, their god let them down and abandoned them.  And they therefore simply have to race around cursing like rabid vermin.

There are so many ways that liberals are abject hypocrites jus on this case that it is beyond unreal.  Let’s look at a few:

First, there’s the fact that to be a liberal is to be not only a fascist but a Nazi.  Take a look at the vicious threats against Hobby Lobby from the left.  I apologize for the language in advance, but you have to consider the unhinged, rabid, VIOLENT, viscious, rabid hate that characterizes liberalism when one of the things that these fascists try to impose on everybody else gets taken away from them:

‘Fu*k you:’ Left-wingers want to ‘burn down’ Hobby Lobby after SCOTUS win
Posted at 10:42 am on June 30, 2014 by Twitchy Staff | View Comments

Let it all out. Exhale.

Stay classy. And peaceful:

For the record, my copy and paste didn’t grab all of the hate.  But you ought to get the idea.

The first one above gives you the noxious, rotten flavor that is liberalism: “F- you, you narrow-minded, anti-women pieces of feces!!!!!!”  Because this person is CLEARLY “tolerant” and open to disagreeing points of view, isn’t she?  And as for the “anti-women” thing, I looked at the images of the gathering outside the Supreme Court taken by the reliably leftist Los Angeles Times and there were far more women cheering the decision than men.  And so what Sandra McMahan is really saying is that “feminists” are so rabid and so toxic that they – like Hitler – are willing to STRIP AWAY the femaleness of pro-life women the way that the Führer rhetorically stripped away the humanity of Jews.  You simply have to think exactly like these people.  Period.

Liberals have pissed away the image of God in what used to be their “human natures.”  They fully qualify for the words of Proverbs 12:1

Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.

The word “brutish” – most often translated as “stupid” – refers to stupid, brutish animals who lack the capacity that humans have for moral reasoning and receiving wisdom.  It’s what Romans chapter one teaches, “God gave them over” to their stupid, brutish natures.

That is why liberals are so often so pathologically stupid and dishonest, such as the liberals exemplify when they claim that “Scalia law is like shariah law.”  These people are literally that stupid and that evil, that there is no difference to them between asking a woman to pay for her own abortion-inducing drugs and stoning a woman to death.  They are stupid, brutish animals who can’t distinguish the difference.

So, yeah, to be a liberal is to be a violent, vicious, fascist thug.  When John Roberts basically betrayed conservatives and re-wrote the damn ObamaCare law to make what was explicitly ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL fly, did conservatives threaten to burn down the world?  Nope.  When the Supreme Court voted for the wrath of God as per Romans chapter one and ruled to abandon DOMA, did conservatives threaten to burn down gay bars?  Nope.  Because we’re not fascists like liberals are.

Here’s another example of pure, unadulterated hypocrisy.  Meet Harry Reid, hypocrite:

“It’s time that five men on the Supreme Court stop deciding what happens to women.”

I mean, Harry Reid is FINE with five men deciding what happens to women.  As long as the five men think exactly like HE does.

EVERY SINGLE ONE of Harry Reid’s top staffers are MEN.  Which is a characteristic ENDEMIC to the left.  But what can I say?  When you’re a Nazi, you demand that Jews be treated one way and that you as a Nazi be treated a different way.  So the same rules you want to apply to “the other” should NEVER apply to you.

Liberals hate truth.  Jesus said, “Everyone who is on the side of truth listens to Me.”  And they held their ears and began screaming f-words and shouting to burn Jesus down, to crucify Him.  Jesus told us that liberals would hate us and He pointed out, “They hated Me first.”  And that’s why they hate Jesus for describing marriage as the union between one man and one woman.  It’s why they despise the Word of God when it teaches that God forms the unborn child in the womb.  When the Virgin Mary was pregnant with the baby Jesus, they howl in rage that she didn’t abort Him and murder Him in the womb.  And when the unborn John the Baptist kicked in the womb when he neared the unborn Jesus in Mary’s womb, they wish that instead of the unborn John kicking in excitement both woman had instead headed to the nearest “clinic” to get rid of the parasites invading their bodies.

Liberals HATE the truth with a passion.  The “truth” is a rhetorical game for them to exploit with propaganda, the way they have exploited their bogus “war on women.”

 

 

What’s REALLY At Stake In The ‘Religious Liberty vs. ObamaCare’ Fiasco

March 27, 2014

When I go to the grocery store, there is frequently someone outside asking me for spare change.  When I go to a fast food restaurant, there is more than occasionally someone outside asking me for spare change (although, it’s happened quite a few times that I’ve had people INSIDE these places asking me for spare change, too).  When I get gas, there is often someone outside asking me for spare change.

Here is my response to them:

“Let me ask you a question: why should I give you anything?”

That’s a head scratcher for most of the people I deal with, I mean, beyond the pure “entitlement” mindset of, “Because you OWE me for being so wonderful.”

“Because I’m a human being,” I often hear.

“What does that mean to me?”  I demand.  “According to the theory of evolution, human beings are nothing more than a random-chance accident and you are nothing more than a slightly smarter version of a monkey.  According to Darwinism, the stronger ought to survive and the weaker ought to have the decency to perish and get the hell out of the stronger’s way.  When the lion or the wolf kills the weakest members of a herd, environmentalists point out that they’re actually doing the herd a service by winnowing out the genetically inferior members who would otherwise undermine the herd.  Frankly, according to Darwinsim, I ought to be taking what little you DO have instead of weakening my own prospects to help an inferior.

So again, why should I give you anything?”

Well, as it so happens, there is only ONE correct answer.  And here it is:

“Because I’m a human being created in the image of God, and because God loves human beings as demonstrated in His sending His Son to seek and to save me even when I’m lost.  And because Jesus cares for the poor, you should care for the poor and help me.”

And with that lesson – along with my pointing out that I am NOT giving a damn thing to you because I’m a good person, but ONLY because I’m following the example of my Savior and Lord, Jesus – I buy them food (I don’t give money to self-destructive people who will only use it to further destroy themselves with drugs and alcohol and cigarettes).

So here’s the question: is there any connection between “morality” and “religion,” or is “morality” whatever the hell Obama or the government says it is?

In my own personal case, and very definitely in the case of orthodox/genuine Christian theology, morality has EVERYTHING to do with religion.

Let me get in the face of atheists here who would interrupt me and say that they’re atheists and they’re “moral.”  Bullcrap.  And here’s why: if you are an atheist and a situation arises and a lie or doing something wrong would benefit you and you don’t think you would get caught, why wouldn’t you do what would benefit you?  And your answer as an atheist MUST be entirely subjective and completely arbitrary.  Lying, for example, is “unchristian.”  But how would lying by “unatheist?”  What IS “atheist morality” such that if you do X you are a bad atheist???  And of course there is nothing, because atheism and morality have nothing whatsoever to do with one another.  Whereas as a Christian, as a religious person, as someone who believes in God, I would tell the truth or do the moral thing in a given situation even to my own immediate harm because I BELIEVE THAT GOD REWARDS GOOD AND PUNISHES EVIL AT JUDGMENT DAY.  WHICH ATHEISTS DON’T BELIEVE.

Morality and religion are intimately connected.

Any other view on that is morally depraved.

The founding fathers had a word for the latter (non-Christian) view that Obama is taking: treason.

George Washington said, ““Of all the habits and dispositions which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.  In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars.  And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion…reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”

So yeah, the view that morality comes from anywhere OTHER than religion is TREASON.  Barack Obama and the Democrat Party are traitors to America according to the father of our country and our greatest American hero.

John Adams pointed out that the Constitution was written ONLY for people who believed in God and received their morality from Him: “We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and true religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Samuel Adams put it this way: “Religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness.”

Patrick Henry had this to say: “The great pillars of all government and of social life [are] virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor…and this alone, that renders us invincible.”

You need to understand that when it comes to ObamaCare, “morality” is quite simply whatever the hell Obama says it is.  “Morality” is a game of “Simon Says,” and Obama has appointed himself as “Simon.”

Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally transform America.”  And he’s largely done it.

If morality can be completely and fundamentally severed from religion, then what IS morality?  It is nothing more than whatever Obama or whoever is in charge of the government says it is.  And nothing more.  That ought to terrify you, if you aren’t a complete moral idiot.

Here’s another question: Can the government grant Hobby Lobby a waiver when it comes to forcing them to provide the four forms of “birth control” (read “abortifacients”) given that Hobby Lobby provides coverage for the sixteen forms of birth control that DON’T actually kill fertilized eggs (babies)???

Given that Congress passed and President Clinton signed into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.  The purpose of the LAW was to prevent any laws that substantially burdened a person’s free exercise of religion., doesn’t it seem like Obama and Democrats ought to do anything possible to prevent forcing people to perform abortions or fund abortions against their religiously-informed consciences?

Consider all the other damn waivers Obama has issued in hopes of keeping his Democrats in power in the Senate.  There is clearly another way around this because Obama has found another way at least 25 times when it came to protecting his Democrats from the consequences of their evil socialist health care takeover law.

As an example:

Could the administration extend the deadline to buy ObamaCare beyond March 31st?  Absolutely NOT, they assured us:

Coincidentally, Schrader filed his bill the same day Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified on Capitol Hill that, “there is no delay beyond March 31st.” Of course, that wasn’t the first, or last, time she made that claim. And, as our colleagues over at Wonkblog explain, the administration is adamant that it’s not so much an extension as an accommodation.

Heritage provides a montage of such assurances as well as some well-deserved mockery:

No, it cannot happen. It will not happen. The Obama administration absolutely, positively will NOT extend the deadline to sign up for Obamacare.

This isn’t even a laugh line anymore. It’s just an eye roller. And how silly these guys look now:

“We have no plans to extend the open enrollment period. In fact, we don’t actually have the statutory authority to extend the open enrollment period in 2014.” — Health and Human Services (HHS) official Julie Bataille, March 11

“Once that 2014 open enrollment period has been set, they are set permanently.” – HHS official Michael Hash, March 11

“March 31st is the deadline for enrollment. You’ve heard us make that clear.” – Press Secretary Jay Carney, March 21

“There is no delay beyond March 31.” – HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, March 12

There was no delay…until there was. The Washington Post reported last night that March 31 is not, in fact, the final word. To get more time, you tell the government that you haven’t been able to sign up yet:

Under the new rules, people will be able to qualify for an extension by checking a blue box on HealthCare.gov to indicate that they tried to enroll before the deadline. This method will rely on an honor system; the government will not try to determine whether the person is telling the truth.

My favorite there is Obama mouthpiece Jay Carney, who says, “March 31st is the deadline for enrollment.  You’ve heard us make that clear.”

Until he made it clear that Obama had tooted his ObamaHorn and imperiously re-issued “morality” to say that what would be wrong was now right and what is right is no longer wrong.

Kind of like what he did with homosexual marriage.  Yes, Obama said that marriage was the union between one man and one woman.  But he hadn’t said, “Obama Sez.”  And so when he said the exact opposite, well, THAT was “morality.”

So it turns out the answer mimicked Obama’s campaign slogan: “Absolutely NOT” turned into “Yes, we can!”

And they could have protected Hobby Lobby from violating their consciences, too.  They simply chose not to do so.  Kind of like homosexuals had the right to marry whatever adult of the opposite sex who would have them and they chose not to exercise their right.  Which is another way of saying that marriage between one man and one woman doesn’t violate anybody’s “rights.”  It merely rightly defines what marriage IS.

So ObamaCare didn’t HAVE to substantially burden Christians who wanted to exercise their basic rights to form a corporation.  Obama merely wanted to violate Christians’ rights because that’s the kind of demonic man he is.

There is no question whatsoever that Barack Obama is violating the Constitution and violating the law.  He is imposing a substantial burden on religious freedom when there are very clearly ways to have avoided this fascist mess.

My point in the above is to simply demonstrate that Obama didn’t have to force Hobby Lobby to violate its conscience, either as individuals or as a corporation.  There was another way, because as Obama has now proven over and over and over again, there has been another way around EVERY ASPECT of this idiotic failed law.  And so there was a way around this too.

Here’s another thing: nobody knows what the Supreme Court is going to do on this one.  It’s basically like, “Let’s spin the wheel of chance to find out what the Constitution means today!”

Laws no longer mean what they say in this country.  Which is another way of saying they no longer mean ANYTHING.

America is no longer a nation of laws.  Obama abrogates the law as he sees fit and simply issues unconstitutional waivers and unconstitutional extensions.  It is a nation under a Fuehrer, rather than under God as we mouth in our Pledge of Allegiance.

And that’s important because that’s what Hitler did: he had his minions pledge allegiance directly to HIM.  That’s what we all might as well be doing now, under Obama and his God damn America.

This is a morally sick nation that is at this point experiencing the curse of the wrath of God according to Romans chapter one, thanks to our antichrist president.

Democrats are liars without shame, without honor, without virtue, without integrity of any kind whatsoever.  They are falsely claiming that Hobby Lobby is somehow denying women birth control when in fact they provide SIXTEEN different forms of birth control on the health insurance that they offer.  This isn’t about health care OR birth control; it is about abortion and Obama wanting to demonically force Christians to violate their faith and their conscience and fund the murder of ANOTHER 55 million innocent human beings.

What does the Bible say about abortion and where babies come from?

“For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.  I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.  My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.” — Psalm 139:13-16

I stand for human LIFE.  Which is another way of saying that I stand AGAINST this demon-possessed president and his demon-possessed Democrat Party and their genocide that is already more than nine times as murderous as Hitler’s.

And I stand for America as “One nation under God” as opposed to “One nation WITHOUT God” as godless Democrats are now demanding.

This also isn’t even about corporations.  Obama and his wicked, godless Democrat left have been persecuting small business owners (i.e., “individual Christian believers”) for refusing to participate in homosexual “marriage”.  They are being forced to either photograph queer “weddings” or participate in aforementioned “weddings” by making the wedding cakes against their consciences.

So, again, Democrats are demon-possessed LIARS for saying this is about a corporation not being a “person” and therefore not able to have religion.  Because it is a FACT that Democrats don’t want ANY PERSON to be able to practice his or her religion unless it is a “religion” of demons.

In fact, this isn’t even about “health care” at ALL.  What did liberal “Justice” Sonia Sotomayor and “Justice” Elena Kagan say?  These Injustices told Hobby Lobby that they could just drop ALL their employees from their generous health care plans and just pay the damn fine:

“Those employers could choose not to give health insurance and pay not that high a penalty – not that high a tax,” Sotomayor said.

Clement said Hobby Lobby would pay more than $500 million per year in penalties, but Kagan disagreed.

“No, I don’t think that that’s the same thing, Mr. Clement,” Kagan said. “There’s one penalty that is if the employer continues to provide health insurance without this part of the coverage, but Hobby Lobby would choose not to provide health insurance at all.

So how can this be about “health care” when these liberal judges are literally telling Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties NOT to provide health care, but to just dump their poor bastard employees into the sewer of ObamaCare???

The crazy thing is, as Christians, Hobby Lobby would ALSO have to violate their consciences to refuse to provide their employees health care.

Liberals are evil, pure and simple.  This isn’t about “health care.”  This is about liberals trying “to control the people.”

This is about Obama and his government having a messiah complex, pure and simple.

We’re about to lose what little is left of America.  It’s all up to the throw of the dice in the Supreme Court where a bunch of unelected judges get to sit and dictate what “religion” is and what “morality” is.

This is what “God damn America” looks like.

Notre Dame Faculty Responds To Obama: ‘This Is a Grave Violation of Religious Freedom and Cannot Stand’

February 14, 2012

Let us simply call this what it is: it is a new front in a culture war for purely political reasons that Obama started on religion, religious freedom and the right to individual conscience.  It is the imposition of excessive and burdensome regulation from a government that has already repeatedly demonstrated that it is way out of control:

Notre Dame Faculty to Obama: ‘This Is a Grave Violation of Religious Freedom and Cannot Stand’
By Terence P. Jeffrey
February 12, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – Twenty-five Notre Dame faculty members–led by the university’s top ethics expert, and including some of the school’s most eminent scholars–have signed a statement declaring that President Barack Obama’s latest version of his administration’s mandate that all health insurance plans in the United States must cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including those that cause abortions, is “a grave violation of religious freedom and cannot stand.”

The statement—put out on the letterhead of the University of Notre Dame Law School–is also signed by leading scholars from other major American colleges and universities, including Princeton, Harvard, Stanford, Georgetown, Brigham Young, Yeshiva and Wheaton College.

Prof. Carter Snead, a professor of law at Notre Dame, was one of the lead organizers of the statement, which was published on his official law school letterhead. Notre Dame’s top ethics expert, Snead serves as director of the university’s Center for Ethics and Culture, a position to which he was appointed by Father John Jenkins, the president of Notre Dame.

In 2009, Father Jenkins awarded President Barack Obama an honorary Notre Dame law degree.

Some of the other distinguished Notre Dame faculty who signed the statement condemning Obama’s mandate are Prof. Patrick Griffin, chairman of Notre Dame’s History Department; Prof. Richard Garnett, an associate dean; John Cavadini, director of Notre Dame’s Institute for Church Life; Christian Smith, director of Notre Dame’s Center for the Study of Religion and Society; Prof. Paolo Carozza, director of Notre Dame’s Center for Civil and Human Rights; Prof. Philip Bess, Notre Dame’s Director of Graduate Studies; and Father Wilson Miscamble, a professor of history.

Other leading organizers of the letter included Prof. Robert George of Princeton and Prof. Mary Ann Glendon of Harvard Law School.

When Obama received his honorary degree at Notre Dame’s May 17, 2009, commencement, he vowed to respect the conscience rights of those who believe abortion is wrong.

“Let’s honor the conscience of those who disagree with abortion, and draft a sensible conscience clause, and make sure that all of our health care policies are grounded not only in sound science, but also in clear ethics, as well as respect for the equality of women,” said Obama. “Those are things we can do.”

Many Catholic bishops and lay leaders had criticized Notre Dame’s decision to grant Obama an honorary degree–pointing to his long-standing position in favor of legalized abortion on demand, which included going so far as to oppose a law in the Illinois state senate that would have simply said that a baby born alive in that state was entitled to the same rights under the U.S. Constitution as any other born “person.”

In their statement released late Friday, the 25 Notre Dame faculty members and the many other prominent scholars from other institutions who joined them said that Obama’s sterilization-contraception-abortifacient mandate–even with Obama’s proposed adjustments on Friday–remains an “assault on religious liberty and rights of conscience.”

“The administration will now require that all insurance plans cover (‘cost free’) these same products and services,” said the scholars. “Once a religiously-affiliated (or believing individual) employer purchases insurance (as it must, by law), the insurance company will then contact the insured employees to advise them that the terms of the policy include coverage for these objectionable things.

“This so-called ‘accommodation’ changes nothing of moral substance and fails to remove the assault on religious liberty and the rights of conscience which gave rise to the controversy,” they said. “It is certainly no compromise. The reason for the original bipartisan uproar was the administration’s insistence that religious employers, be they institutions or individuals, provide insurance that covered services they regard as gravely immoral and unjust. Under the new rule, the government still coerces religious institutions and individuals to purchase insurance policies that include the very same services.”

The statement also said that Obama’s latest iteration of the regulation is “an insult to the intelligence of Catholics, Protestants, Eastern Orthodox Christians, Jews and Muslims” and “cannot stand.”

“The simple fact is that the Obama administration is compelling religious people and institutions who are employers to purchase a health insurance contract that provides abortion-inducing drugs, contraception, and sterilization,” the scholars said. “This is a grave violation of religious freedom and cannot stand. It is an insult to the intelligence of Catholics, Protestants, Eastern Orthodox Christians, Jews, Muslims, and other people of faith and conscience to imagine that they will accept an assault on their religious liberty if only it is covered up by a cheap accounting trick.”

When you’ve got Harvard, Princeton and Standford agreeing with Catholic Notre Dame, it is rather glaringly obvious that Obama is just WRONG.

Let me provide a couple of illustrations as to “what an insult to the intelligence” of all concerned this truly is:

1) the Catholic League – very obviously a Catholic organization – is one such organization that will be required to purchase insurance coverage to provide “free” birth control, abortifacients and sterilizations.  Obama says the Catholic League won’t have to pay anything for this; rather the insurance company that represents them will.  But what insurance company is that?  It turns out that the health insurer of the Catholic League is Christian Brothers.  But guess what?  That is ALSO a Catholic organization.  So Catholics are STILL being forced to violate their consciences as Obama tramples all over their religious freedom.  But it won’t just be Christian Brothers who pays for this “:care”; Christian Brothers and the Catholic League share costs such that each pay a percentage of the burden.  So the Catholic League will STILL be compelled to pay for treatment it morally objects to on religious grounds that the Catholic Church has held for one thousand five hundred years.

Many religious – and particularly many CATHOLIC – organizations are self-insured.  So Obama is still demanding that the Catholic Church must pay for “care” it has never had to pay for before.  It’s just a bait-and-switch tactic for fools who love nothing more than having “their intelligence insulted” to make it appear that the Church isn’t under attack when in fact it clearly IS under attack.

2) Take the garden variety situation in which a Catholic organization is not self-insured or insured through another Catholic organization.  In this case, Obama is STILL a liar.  He claims:

“Religious organizations won’t have to pay for these services and no religious institution will have to provide these services directly.”

But they still have to pay for them INDIRECTLY.  And how is that anything other than a completely meaningless and arbitrary distinction???

Unless Obama is volunteering to take over the premiums of all the religious organization that he is imposing his new policy on, THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS REQUIREMENT.

Unlimited and unrestricted access to Birth control, abortifacients and sterilizations isn’t free just because Obama declares it by fiat.  Somebody still has to pay for it.  And it is beyond “magical thinking” to believe that the insurance companies won’t increase their premiums to reflect this new level of “care.”

This “accommodation” simply reveals that Obama is a truly dishonest weasel.

One last thing.  If you look at the way the mainstream media propaganda continually depicts this story, it is all about “preventative health care for women.”  This whole boondoggle is being imposed and packaged under the guise of “preventative health care.”  Well, it’s one thing to require an insurer to provide “preventative care” for issues such as the deadly disease of diabetes.  But when you use the same language to describe a human baby as you do a deadly disease, you have crossed the line into being genuinely morally sick.  That is NOT mainstream thinking; that is the thinking of the far radical feminist left that is being deceitfully repackaged into something that masquerades as mainstream thinking.

The other thing that is just beyond nauseating is that the left and their mainstream media allies continually depict this issue as a “birth control” issue as if this is the first time in the entire history of the republic that woman have ever had “access to birth control.”  That is obviously a red herring; rather, this is the first time ever that Catholics have been put in a position in which they had to sacrifice their religious beliefs and violate their consciences to provide something that has obviously been “widely available” for decades if not centuries in America.  It is a false facade, pure and simple.

I am not a Catholic.  I do not believe that providing birth control is evil (although I most certainly DO oppose abortion-inducing drugs as evil).  But the Catholic Church has consistently maintained their belief regarding birth control for 1,500 years.  It is simply stunning that a theology which has endured for a millennium and a half cannot survive the wickedness of one Barack Obama term of office.
