I can hear them laughing all the way from here.
EWTN has now made Obama`s enemies list and will probably pay dearly, but I`m glad they`re making a stand.
The whole issue is being mis-framed as a violation only of the freedom of religion of religious employers. The fact of the matter is that it is a violation of the freedom of religion of anyone who opposes abortion and contraception and is an employer. My brother is a partner in a law firm he co-founded. He has an agreement with his partners not to include abortion, abortion-inducing drugs, or contraceptives in their employee Heath plan. He did this over 20 years ago because he accepts the Catholic Church’s teachings on these issues. If this mandate stands, then his freedom of religion not to cooperate in abortion and contraception are also being violated. In fact, the FREEDOM of EVERYONE not to do so is being violated, whether or not they choose to use that freedom.
great station, glad to hear it
Time for a donation to EWTN. I think they have a link at EWTN to assist in the lawsuit
I am glad they are taking a stand. But my wife brought up an interesting point. Why now? Many states have similar mandates.
How is Mother Angelica doing, anyway? She seems to have dropped out of sight.
This is a rope-a-dope folks.
There will never be any court case... well, let me re-phrase that: As long as a court case would not benefit zer()’s re-election, there will be NO court case. And no way no how does it help his re-election.
There will probably be an out-of-court settlement, giving a waiver to EWTN. It will be done in a way that maximizes the public sigh of relief, maximizes zer() adoration, and maximizes the votes.

Bible verses, 2:14 (KJV)
Luke: Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
2 Corinthians: Now thanks be unto God, which always causethus to triumphin Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
1 Corinthians: But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
James: What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
John: And foundin the temple those that soldoxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting
Ephesians: For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition [between us]
On 2/14/2012, at 12 o’clock noon, I wish to request that everyone stop and recite the Lord’s prayer and these verses. If you are in a car, at a stoplight, let traffic wait. If you are at work, stop what you are doing.
We need to get down on one knee, all of us, and pray to God Almighty and tell Him that we do, in fact, love Him, just as He loves us.
One time, years ago, I was in a certain foreign country during a huge strike over oil prices. Truckers with tomatoes, cars, everytbing came to a standstill, and they stalled everything as people tried to get to work.
And, it worked. A few days later, the point was made, changes occurred and people went back to work.
We can do this here, without crawling on our bellies to the steps of a national government that cuts us to ribbons and the children out of our women.
If it’s good enough for Tim Tebow to get down on one knee in front of God and everybody, it should be good enough for us, too.
Sibelius be messing with the wrong nun!
Go Mother A!
Sr. Angelica fought liberal bishops and won.
Mother Angelica — you will win!
Well we remember the movie the “Mighty Macs” from last year and those nuns sure look “tough”.
Who messes with a nun?
Who messes with a nun that looks like a pirate? :)
