So the Health Commissar, Kathleen Sebelius, has decided that, under Obamacare, religious institutions, like any other employer, will be required to offer their workers free contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients. Well, there's a surprise.
This entirely predictable news was received with stunned bewilderment by Obamaphile rubes such as the Reverend John Jenkins of Notre Dame, who in 2009 gave the president both an honorary degree and his imprimatur in exchange for the promise of a "sensible" approach to conflicts between church and state. Now that they're on the receiving end of Obama's good sense, many of America's Catholic bishops have issued protests, characteristically anguished and hand-wringing but betraying little understanding of the stakes....

"Except: There is one conspicuous holdout against the secularist enforcers. When Muslim parents in Bristol, England, raised a fuss about their grade-schoolers' being fed gay marriage in the curriculum, a panicked administration yanked the books in nothing flat."
There's a reason: Muslims just might blow your a$$ up.
Hmmmm. Just saying.
Is this administration out to have it's own version of 'the troubles' writ large? Is that the goal?
I'm not hiring anyone. I'll trust in the Lord to keep me fit, rather than buy any plan that requires me to go against my God.
Their problem with dealing with Muslim outrage is a combination of not wanting to get their ass blown up and inability to stand up to a Designated Victim Group, with the second much more important.
If conservatives or Christians (Designated Oppressor Groups) tried a similar “direct approach” to protest, the authorities would promptly squash them like a bug.
” - - - So the Health Commissar, Kathleen Sebelius, has decided that, under Obamacare, religious institutions, like any other employer, will be required to offer their workers free contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients.”
In other words, Dictator Obama has decreed that Religious Freedom In the United States of America will be abolished by pitting women against God.
Has the whole world gone mad???
Mr. Steyn, may I break your piece into 95 Theses and tack them to my church’s door?
” - - - Has the whole world gone mad???”
An interesting question, one that deserves a far better answer than any that I may pen your way.
Bolshevik Chairman Obama is the first foreign-born occupant of The White House, and thus has NO sense of Honor towards ANYTHING American.
Religious Freedom must be done away with in a manner that will have majority support. So Obama did not choose men’s reproductive “rights” as the issue that will destroy Religious Freedom, as there are fewer men voters than women voters.
Besides, women today have a “chip-on-their-shoulder” attitude towards THEIR “rights,” and thus will be more likely to “put on their marchin’ shoes” and follow Obama to bring about the abomination called Obamanation.
Read the book “Left Behind” and notice how closely The Obamanator has followed the script of the con-man called “Carpathian.” Chilling - - -
Mr. Obama may or may not be foreign born, but this has nothing to do with his attitudes towards America.
There are millions of foreign-born American citizens who are filled with patriotism, and millions of natural-born citizens (by the strictest possible definition) who are as anti-American as it is possible to be.
IOW, you're simultaneously slandering good Americans and giving a pass to bad ones. Patriotism is not genetic.
” - - - Mr. Obama may or may not be foreign born, but this has nothing to do with his attitudes towards America.”
Then we must agree to disagree, as Obama’s hatred of America is the only rational explanation to his consistent destruction of everything American.
I have met many foreign-born Americans, and none hated America. Obama hates America, and was foreign born. Our Founding Fathers were very wise to insist that only native-born Americans be allowed to run for President. The Democrats, and our sorry RINOs ignored that, and now you and I are paying the price.
It will be left to Non-Democrats to discover where Obama learned to hate America. So far the evidence of Obama’s life lessons are the most consistent with the lessons of Karl Marx.
The fact that the Democrats did not bother to check Obama’s birth records in 2008 reveals how easy it was for a foreign-born Marxist to spew his hatred of America from The Oval Office.
BTW, no need to involve “millions of foreign-born American citizens,” as I am well aware of their patriotism. For example, Alexander Hamilton.
Where you go off the tracks is your claim that he hates America because he "was foreign-born." Leaving aside whether that statement is accurate or not, it is ludicrous to contend that birth outside the USA in and of itself causes hatred of this country.
” - - - birth outside the USA in and of itself causes hatred of this country. “
This is your claim, not mine. My reference to Alexander Hamilton points out the difference in our positions: Hamilton, a Patriot who honored American Values.
My point was that Obama “ - - - has NO sense of Honor towards ANYTHING American - - - “ because he was foreign-born. This is a fairly common trait with the foreign-born American Citizens that I have met, especially Professors, Journalists, and talking heads on TV.
Being born in the USA is a check and balance on growing up having no sense of Honor towards American Values, a hard lesson our sorry MSM and politicians ignored with Obama.
The Obama Regime will continue for the next 5 years to re-make the USA into the Obamanation that Obama wants, and there will be nothing that our sorry politicians will do to even slow him down.
...a Montreal couple and their son were convicted of a multiple "honor killing." Immigrants from Afghanistan, the Shafias had coolly plotted around the kitchen table the murder of all three of their daughters (plus one of the father's wives), and then carried it out, by drowning them in the Rideau Canal near Kingston, Ontario for the crime of wishing to live as North American teenage girls. The father was caught on tape saying, "May the devil s**t on their graves!" which he gamely attempted on the witness stand to pass off as some sort of traditional greeting in Dari.
Zainab, Sahar, and Geeti Shafia had told various teachers, social workers, and police officers that they were being beaten, that they wanted to be placed in foster homes, and that their parents and brother were planning to kill them. And in every instance the enforcers of the secular state prioritized deference to Islam over the fate of the girls.
