Schumer To Religious Americans: Pick One—Your Faith or Your Business
Cybercast News Service ^ | July 10, 2014 - 4:13 PM | Eric Scheiner

At a press conference Thursday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said people with religious beliefs who disagree with the ObamaCare contraception mandate can choose their faith or “you don’t have to form a corporation.”

“You’re born with a religion or you adopt a religion. You have to obey the precepts of that religion and the government gives you a wide penumbra—you don’t have to form a corporation,” Schumer said.

Schumer claims the Supreme Court’s decision that closely-held firms have a right to deny coverage for certain types of birth control they find objectionable under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) was “misapplied.” …

Remember, this is NOT about providing contraception to employees.

It IS about forcing Christians to pay for abortion against their faith and will.

It is only a small step to choose your religion (i.e. God) or choose to eat, or buy a house, or register your car or go to college. We are very close now.

Let's make another analogy, shall we?

Chuck Schumer can either be a Senator, or he can be an asshole.

He can't be both ...... oh wait, yes he can - and he is.

Nevermind.

“You’re born with a religion or you adopt a religion. You have to obey the precepts of that religion and the government gives you a wide penumbra—you don’t have to form a corporation,” Schumer said.

“You’re born with a place to shop or you adopt a a place to shop. You have to obey the precepts of that place to shop and the government gives you a wide penumbra—you don’t have to shop there”

Why doesn't that work?

Oh I know. Because lying liberal dirt bags like this fool love to get on television and say the vast majority of people support their left wing idiot ideas. Unfortunately, when people are allowed to vote with there pocketbooks, it soon becomes apparent that left wing wack jobs like this idiot are only supported by their fellow members of the lunatic fringe.

I will stand with The Almighty. He will keep me healthy enough for His purposes, and those are all that matter.

With no sign of the normal demeanor that most folks would have delivering news of that import--in fact, he seemed delighted!

I recall that putz from the Waco Hearings and all his grandstanding, there isn't much room left for my opinion of him to get lower, but I think he just found it.

On the contrary, EVERYONE has a right to start a business as long as they follow the law.

Schumer has abandoned God’s Law Word.

The Fed and State governments are rejecting God’s Law Word.

So the laws of America are starting to come into a direct and hostile confrontation with God’s Law.

According to Schumer, evil wicked people can form corporations and practice ungodliness, while American laws, which are becoming hostile to God’s Law, make it increasingly difficult for those who seek to follow God’s law to also abide by American civil laws.

Schumer thinks he is clever. He is wise in his own conceits.

People who want to live godly lives - this is what Schumer is saying - should simply not own and operate businesses.

Repent, America, and pray to God that he would restore America as a Christian nation, and destroy and crush his enemies, which are the evil, wicked rulers, like Schumer, he has placed over us.

All those in the Senate and House need to repent and turn to Christ, or they will face damnation in the hereafter.

Being wordly people, they do not look forward to the hereafter, they look only at the worldly here and now, and they do not serve Americans, they serve the dark, evil, monied powers which control governments.

The worldly, evil, monied powers serve Satan and hate Christ. Children of disobedience, they love sin and corruption.

I got your penumbra right here you Schmuckie Schumer. Your premise should be turned around. Just because I formed a corporation doesn’t mean I lose my Constitutional right to freedom of religion.

Except for Obama, no public official has advocated harm to the American people more than Schumer. If we had a justice system he’d be doing some time.

So, religious citizens are now officially assigned to the back of the bus? No participation in the America Dream anymore? All so that people can get free contraceptives? What an immoral stance and unconstitutional attitude.

The 1st Amendment doesn’t say you have freedom to excercise your religion ... unless you are an employer.

If they want to change the 1st Amendment to say that, let them go through the proper procedures to do so. Until then, it doesn’t say that.

If Christians were to lose their businesses then the government would collapse. It would be the end of the homosexual Chuck Shumer (yes, I know he is married to a woman who looks like a man).

When that day comes (hopefully soon), I will do my part as well.

Actually, Chuckie, the government doesn’t GIVE us diddly squat regarding a penumbra for religion. The 1st Amendment says the government CAN’T interfere with the free exercise of religion. So, Chuckie, go pound sand.

“Sounds like Schumer is foreshadowing an American Holocaust.”

Except the Jews in Germany rather placidly accepted their fate and were largely already disarmed.

We on the other hand......

“the government gives you a wide penumbra”

It`s a slip of Schumer who speaks for the devil because a penumbra is the gray area between the Light and the Darkness, i.w., between Good and Evil!

Sadly, although the Constitution's simple rules concerning the federal government's limited powers and personal rights are arguably no harder to learn than a child's board game, post-FDR era Harvard Law School-indoctrinated Sen. Schumer is proof that learning the Constitution wrong nonetheless makes it difficult to relearn correctly; I've been there. (I hope that Schumer at least didn’t blow his own money on his Harvard Law School credentials.)
FR: Never Accept the Premise of Your Opponent’s Argument

Regarding Sen. Schumer’s faulty understanding of the constitutionality of the Obamacare Democratcare contraception mandate for example, he doesn’t seem to understand, or blatantly ignores, that the states have never delegated to the feds, expressly via the Constitution, the specific power to regulate, tax and spend for intrastate public healthcare purposes as evidenced by the following excerpts from Supreme Court case opinions.

In fact, constitutional authorities have repeatedly clarified that the Founding States trusted the states, not the federal government, with the care of the people.

Finally, Sen. Schumer's misguided idea that personal rights and business rights are somehow constitutionally mutually exclusive doesn't hold water either. This is evidenced by the fact that the Founding States made the Constitution's Clause 8 of Section 8 of Article I to reward individuals for sharing their intellectual property. More specifically, such individuals are awarded temporary monopoly power in the form of patents and copyrights, monopoly power being an aspect of corporate power, so that inventors and authors can benefit from their ideas. And there's no wording in Clause 8 that requires inventors and authors to give up their 1st Amendment protected freedoms while they enjoy their monopoly power.

As a side note concerning the federal government's constitutionally limited powers, please consider the following. The states would sure be a dull, boring place to grow up and live in if parents were to make sure that their children were taught about the federal government's constitutionally limited powers as the Founding States had intended for those powers to be understood. /sarc

Thomas Jefferson had put it this way:

“Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature.” - Thomas Jefferson (Letter to Edward Carrington January 16, 1787)

You’re right there -

It’s the spirit of anti-Christ.

“Gay rights”, “sex positive”, abortion, gov’t control of everything - all is the spirit of anti-Christ, attempting to diminish and destroy His influence in the world.

Well, they WILL “win”, but only for about 7 years. Hope they have fun, and we’ll see them later.
