Obama Tells Vatican:‘Most Religious Organizations Are Entirely Exempt’ from Obamacare
cnsnews.com ^ | 3/27/14 | Patrick Goodenough

Posted on 03/28/2014 8:54:40 AM PDT by ColdOne

When he met with Vatican secretary of state Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the president said, “I explained to him that most religious organizations are entirely exempt [from the contraceptive mandate]. Religiously-affiliated hospitals or universities or NGOs simply have to attest that they have a religious objection, in which case they are not required to provide contraception, although that employees of theirs who choose are able to obtain it through the insurance company.”

“And I pledged to continue to dialogue with the U.S. Conference of Bishops to make sure that we can strike the right balance, making sure that not only everybody has health care but families, and women in particular, are able to enjoy the kind of health care coverage that the ACA offers, but that religious freedom is still observed,” he said.

Most? And who shall decide?

The undocumented Obama, or the unaccountable, corrupt IRS?

"Religiously-affiliated hospitals or universities or NGOs simply have to attest that they have a religious objection, in which case they are not required to provide contraception, although that employees of theirs who choose are able to obtain it through the insurance company.”

The correct statement: "Religiously-affiliated hospitals or universities or NGOs simply have to attest . . . employees of theirs who choose are able to obtain it through the insurance company at the employer's expense since costs are always passed through to the payer.”

Pope Francis is from South America, and has dealt with tin pot dictators for years. He can spot a wannabe chisler a mile away. He must needed all of his self control not to laugh in the community organizer’s face. Or maybe he did....

True - when we allow the left to be painted as “anti-religious”, we’re allowing them to hide their true agenda.

They don’t mind religion so much - they just hate Christ and His people.

"...at the employer's expense since costs are always passed through to the payer.”

Exactly right. It's a shell game. If contraception (abortion) coverage must be provided free of charge to the insured, the cost will be passed through the insurer to the company that pays the premiums.

Lying to the Pope must be a special kind of lie ... even if it’s from a Muslim sympathizer.

He actually goes to the Vatican and lies directly to the Pope? He’s incapable of being truthful. Incapable. Alas, and I had great hopes for him on this visit, too. Pray for Obama, and please pray for America!

He lied to God's face when he took all of his Oath's of Office, which is a way bigger offense because he cursed himself when he did it.

“...at the employer’s expense since costs are always passed through to the payer.” “

That’s just what I thought, too.

So, just how does that help any Christian organization which wants to comply with its conscience?

That was the implication ... other religions like Hinduism, Sikh, Eck, Satanism, etc are all pagan and can be disposed of at any given time.

So he’ll lie to the pope.

I don't doubt that he would. However, I believe he is being fed a buffet of outright lies by his puppet masters and its what he wants to believe that counts to him so its what he believes. He's been a born and bred Marxist from day one. It will not change.

It’s actually a lie. The organizations have to take an intentional paperwork step that qualifies their employees to receive contraceptive care that the organization finds abhorrent.

Obama forces them to violate their conscience in either direction.
