NewsBusters ^ | 2/12/12 | Brent Baker

Posted on 02/12/2012 4:39:16 PM PST by Nachum

“I was struck looking at this,” Washington Post columnist and former foreign editor David Ignatius expressed on ABC’s This Week in admiring how Barack Obama on Friday adjusted the contraception mandate, hailing “the ability to do a do-over quickly” since the administration was not “done deaf” and “they did make changes and this is now a policy that you can defend.” Unaddressed, how it’s just an accounting gimmick and Catholic institutions would still be required to cover what they morally oppose, to say nothing of what gives the government the right to require private insurers to offer a service for “free.”

Macht nichts. Nobody at the comPost worth saving in case of fire, and nobody cares about these jerkoffs except each other.

The people who propound the ‘separation of church and state’ are the ones who hate the separation of state and church.

“they did make changes and this is now a policy that you can defend.”

_______________________________________________________

Absolute LIE.

Nothing was changed except a few words. Oh wait....
....even the words didn’t change:

“Despite what President Obama said at his White House press conference, the actual regulations make permanent the “interim final regulations” issued August 3, 2011 — the ones that sparked the furor in the first place.

...The bottom line is this: “Accordingly, the amendment to the interim final rule with comment period amending 45 CFR 147.130(a)(1)(iv) which was published in the Federal Register at 76 FR 46621-46626 on August 3, 2011, is adopted as a final rule without change.” [Emphasis added.]

Translation: The Obama administration Friday afternoon put into federal law the very regulation that drew objections from almost 200 Catholic bishops, some 50 religiously affiliated colleges and universities, 65 North American bishops of Orthodox churches, numerous other Jewish, Evangelical and Lutheran leaders, and even some liberals — and without changing so much as a comma.”

The only change was a few words.

Nothing changed

It’s the same Unconstitutional claptrap with a few different words.

This guy is either retarded or gets a kick out of fellating Obama.

Please excuse the word retarded, I know it is no longer politicaly correct, but it is apt.

It is worth clarifying that Will “zings” the Bishops for their initial support of Obamacare. They should have expected this from this administration. I quite agree. Socialists are Marxists, that is their atheist nature.

Ignatius and Will went from being VERY IMPORTANT COLUMNISTS to being relatively unknown niche bloggers. They haven’t figured that out yet.

The people who propound the ‘separation of church and state’ are the ones who hate the separation of state and church.

In more direct fashion:

The people who propound the 'separation of church and state' are the ones who favor and promote 'subordination of church to state'.

Not to mention, subordination of the individual to the state...

So this numbnut thinks I have to belong to a church or religious organization in order to have 1st Amendment religious protections? I don’t belong to one and I am not going to buy insurance that funds abortions or abortion-inducing “contraceptives.” Period! End of discussion.

David Ignatius is a horse’s *ss. A smarmy, know-it-all, Commie-lovin’, abortion-lovin’, Muslim-lovin’ horse’’s *ss.

Not all of them supported that initially. As for the rest, we will pray that they are learning the truth.

Ubama couldn't even write a simple Law Review that was expected of him as President of the Harvard Law Review, and he thinks he is going to outwit an institution that has engendered the likes of Ignatius of Loyola, St. Thomas More, Thomas Aquinas, etc., etc., etc.

Good luck with that, Steve.

yeah I don’t understand why they didn’t see it coming. Liberals hate religion.

I so agree. What a shame though....because he really needs to read St. Augustine’s CONFESSIONS.
