The Obama Administration has decided to allow one more year for religious groups to comply with a regulation that forces them to make an impossible choice: either provide health-insurance that includes coverage of birth control and some abortion-inducing drugs to their employees, or provide no health-insurance and face stiff and escalating fines from the government.
Belmont Abbey College, has sued the Obama administration, and its president, Bill Thierfelder ... has said that he will close the school before he complies with the Obama administration's requirement that purchase health-insurance for its employees inclusive of contraception.
This is a shameless attempt to kick the can down the road in an election year

All I can say is FUBO
Every single action taken by the POSOTUS in made with an eye on the election.
Is this "leadership" or "job security panic"?
That’s mighty white of him.
That’s mighty white of him to do that.
LOL! You beat me to the punch.
This would be like King Darius postponing throwing Daniel into the lions dens so Daniel could pay him alms...
Where are the Democrat congresscritters who only voted in favor of the bill on the understanding that this would not take place.
What, does he want us to go William Wallace on him?
I ain’t paying for squat Zero.
0bama is silly with this one. The Roman Catholic Church does not think in election cycles. The could give a damn that he is putting this off. They are going to mobilize their people wherever possible. They know that he is going to force Christians to do things that violate their conscience.
Maybe 0bama is the anti-Christ after all?
I’m dreading whats gonna happen after he loses the election and before Jan 20, 2013.
My guess is it will be a scorched earth campaign the likes of which NOBODY has ever seen.
Also look for presidential pardons which would make even Clinton blush. Tony Rezko will be first on the list.
*shrug* No big deal.
The Church is perfectly fine with paying for that kind of insurance for their employees in numerous European countries, and probably some more around the world.
In fact, Pope Benedikt XVI. himself, back, when he was Archbishop of Munich and Freising, had no problem whatsoever to pay for the legally mandated state controlled insurance for his roughly 20,000 employees. (He also did not have a choice).
Get used to it.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
If Obama would consider doing this in an election year, just imagine the extreme actions he will take if re-elected.
GOSH! I have to self censor so many of my posts anymore by NOT posting at all. Obama brings out the worst of me.

. . . . Check out article, then # 12 , # 13.
Which is what they want. No Catholic health care. No Catholic education. No Catholic adoption services. No Catholic services for substance abusers, the hungry, the homeless. Shut 'em all down. But plenty of "freedom of worship".
I wonder how many percent of the Catholic vote he will get this time.
