Honestly, this really is the best thing that could happen. It brings back the Healthcare front and center. With the ecomony doing so fantastically (lol) this will motivate us agaIN. He is a POS and I feel like I did in 2009/10 right before we kicked everyone out!!!!!
Obama could propose a solution....
maybe shuffle the money so every taxpaying citizen can get what they want as long as religious people aren’t connected directly
they have a problem with offering coverage directly, so to protect womens rights and equal protection, the government can offer free vouchers for all birth control and cut government funding to catholic hospitals or other religious institutions to cover the cost of it.
this could apply to all moral objections and religions as well

Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
This is going to be fought out with lawsuits, with court decisions, and, dare I say it, maybe even in the streets.
Don’t forget fighting with the ballot box.
I think Obama was just arrogant enough to think that dumping on the Catholic Church would be a cake walk.
I wouldn’t want to start singing “Ding Dong The Witch is Dead” too soon, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama throws Sibelius under the bus if the doody really starts hitting the fan for him politically.
Incredible that THIS was posted on May 12, 2009!!!!!!
(but, we didnt like Bath-House Barry because of the color of his skin/sarc)
Romneycare is the FATHER of Obamacare !
There is a reason why the roads of hell are paved with the skulls of bishops.
Frankly, I’m getting tired of the surrender monkey parades and the defeatists that these threads bring out. If you’ve given up, dig a bloody hole and bury yourselves.
Hey BILL, how about in the f*ing voting booth? Why don't you get your fellow parishioners in line for the real fight? We don't really need millions of "catholics" voting for Obama because of whorehouse bullshit like "social justice." Get it?
What did he think was gonna happen?
This article is bunk.
Within a week the media will have killed this story and the sheeple will have forgotten all about it. The Catholic church will have been bought off or intimated into dropping the whole thing and it will go away.
Sadly, the USCCB let the wolf IN by taking Obama at his word when he said there would be religious exemptions in the Obamacare legislation. Obama knew that the exemptions would be so narrow as to be useless, but he considered the Bishops useful idiots in his desire to take over health care in this country, so he let them believe what they wanted to believe about the legislation.
Obama will relent (for now) and the Media and Church will celebrate his courage.
It’s not enough to expand the exemption to schools, hospital etc. (which is what I think will happen). What about the small business owner who doesn’t want to pay for these things? Will he be forced to choose between obeying the law or God? Without complete repeal of the Obamacare act, the power will still remain.
