Many of you have heard about the Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of nuns providing care for the elderly, who are now taking on the Obama Administration over the Affordable Care Act's (ObamaCare) contraception mandate. Religious exemptions from the ObamaCare contraception mandate are often made for government-approved entities, but the Obama Administration has deemed the nuns, who work exclusively with the elderly, unworthy of an exception.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor recently granted the Little Sisters of the Poor a temporary injunction, so they do not have to violate their religious beliefs by offering health insurance that covers contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs. The Obama Administration, however, is asking the Supreme Court to force the nuns to obey the contraception mandate.
For those who do not understand that the mandate is a violation of religious liberty and conscience or recognize the outrageousness of the Obama Administration's insistence on enforcement, perhaps these Constitution-violating suggestions for possible mandates in the future will be enlightening.
One party's mandate is another group's loss of freedom.
Can you imagine the reaction of these groups if the government forced them to comply with made-up mandates?

How about this mandate: Occupy Wall Streeters must get jobs.
(Add your own mandate here )
MANDATE: Bills must be read before being voted on by Congress.
CONgress members must pass a test, taken publicly and aired on cspan, proving they have read the bill and know what’s in it before they can vote.
Once they beat up these poor nuns in court they will claim that this is 'settled law' from now on
Anyone else who tries to avoid Obamacare on the same grounds will be tossed out of court citing USDOJ-vs-Sisters of the Poor court case
Quiz at 4:30 EST. Lynchings at 6:30. If they had to read everything they passed they wouldn’t get much mischief accomplished! Most all of them would get lynched the first day! Oh sweet day!
The government should next violate the liberals’ consciences by reinstating the anti sodomy laws.
You are heartless.
This is a one-way-street. People on the left have no consciences to violate.
... require every American to maintain a military-style “assault rifle” plus a 1,000 rounds of ammo in their own homes. The IRS will send a representative to your home to check the serial number each year to ensure that the weapon does in fact belong to the head-of-household and is not being passed around to fake compliance....
RE: The IRS will send a representative to your home to check the serial number each year
And how many IRS agents do we have to hire to do that?
Obviously I have my tongue planted firmly in my cheek when I made that statement. But Liberals are very adept at passing regulations in full knowledge that the “Poor” and other “Liberals” will not comply. Hence my statement about an “enforcement mechanism”.
I can guarantee you that a certain middle eastern death cult will not have its ‘conscience’ violated.
Two laws must first be repealed before one new law is passed until further notice.
Mandate that elected politicians and unelected bureaucrats read the constitution. I doubt idiots like Obama, Conyers, pelosi or, SJ Lee even know what it is.
