The Obama administration is claiming that a dedicated Christian publisher of Bibles and ministry material is insufficiently religious to qualify for an exemption to the contraception mandate in the presidents health-care overhaul. According to a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in the District of Columbia by Tyndale House Publishers, the company has been refused a religious employer exemption because the Health and Human Services Department categorically maintains that any for-profit publisher is not a religious employer. The Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing Tyndale, called the rule an unconstitutional and arbitrary threat to religious freedom.

So, under Obamacare, “religion” means whatever they say it means. And that can change at whim. Humpty Dumpty must be smiling.
I bet if they published The Quran instead of The Bible, they would get an exemption.
Next they’ll have a Religion Czar to interpret the Gospels for us to tell how the Sacraments don’t apply the way we think they do. In fact, there is a Moonbat on the Boston Herald message boars that told me the Anointing of the Sick doesn’t entitle us to build hospitals.
Wow! You took the words right out of my mouth! ALL Muslims got an exemption from the get-go. Isn’t that religious discrimination?
Well one good thing could come out of this but only if that piece of low class sub-human trash and his wookie wife are kicked out of the WH.
Using this as a precedent, since the government feels it has the right to define what is and is not a religion, then a real American president could outlaw the hate cult of Is-Slime and all of Mo-HAM-mud’s followers.
It is a shame, no politician has the backbone to call that gutter belief out for what it is. It is not a religion but a hate cult bent on the total destruction of Western Culture.
Horrible and classic Stalinism.
Aren’t Muslims already getting an exemption because they don’t believe in ‘insurance’???
“At the descretion of the HHS Secretary...”
