Attacks and plots against the U.S. since 1995: Who Committed?

A total of 43 Catholic educational, charitable and other entities filed a dozen lawsuits in federal court around the nation Monday, charging that the Obama Administration’s rule requiring coverage of birth control in most health insurance plans violates their religious freedom.

Among the plaintiffs in the suits are the University of Notre Dame and the Catholic University of America, as well as the Archdioceses of New York, Washington, Dallas, St. Louis and Pittsburgh.

They join several other, mostly smaller entities that have sued over the requirements for no-cost coverage of regular birth control, sterilization and so-called morning after emergency contraceptives. Because one of the ways those drugs may work is by preventing the implantation of a fertilized egg into a woman’s uterus, Catholics believe they can cause a very early abortion, even though they are classified by the Food and Drug Administration as contraceptives.

President Obama tried to defuse the controversy over the requirement back in February, after religious groups complained that the exemption from the requirement, which applied effectively only to actual houses of worship and groups that employ only members of a specific faith, was too narrow.

The president’s proposal was not to expand the exemption, but to allow religious universities and charities to have their health insurers offer the coverage instead.

“The result will be that religious organizations won’t have to pay for these services, and no religious institution will have to provide these services directly,” Obama said. “But women who work at these institutions will have access to free contraceptive services, just like other women, and they’ll no longer have to pay hundreds of dollars a year that could go towards paying the rent or buying groceries.”

The president’s Catholic allies were pleased, as were some of those who had been complaining. Even the president of Notre Dame, Father John Jenkins, called the announcement “a welcome step toward recognizing the freedom of religious institutions to abide by the principles that define their respective missions.”

But over time, discussions over how to make it work appear to have broken down.

That is because Christians only care for you until you are born, after that ‘Fuck you’…

Not all Christians are like that, but those that claim to be ‘pro-life’, yes, the most compassion comes before birth, after that it’s “should have been born to a better person”

Rick, I’m sorry that hearing that JFK speech on religion makes you throw up, but if it makes you feel any better, knowing that you were running for President would make him shit his pants.

America isn’t Nazi Germany. And the secret police aren’t coming for ya. Hell, the IRS isn’t even coming for ya. This government ‘hates’ religious organizations so much, it lets them keep $100 billion a year in offerings tax-free. Persecute my ass like that. JON STEWART, on an assertion by a member of the Southern Baptist Convention — and other Christian leaders — that the government is persecuting organized religion in the same way Nazis took over Germany, on The Daily Show.
