Skip to comments.Democratic Bill Would Grant Executive Power to Deny Religious Freedom to Churches, Synagogues,

Most houses of worship have been granted a full exemption from Obamacare's regulation mandating coverage of contraception and abortifacients, but Ed Whelan points out that new legislation unveiled by Senate Democrats yesterday could put that religious protection in jeopardy.
Although "bill itself wouldnt abolish the exemption," Whelan writes, it "would allow the Obama administration (or its successors) to abolish the exemption and the accommodation in their entirety. (If the bill were instead intended to preserve the exemption and the accommodation against regulatory abolition, it would be a fairly simple matter to say so clearly.)"

Reckon we’ve reached the point where the only religion permitted will be the Church of The State. Congratulations America.
IS ANYONE PAYING ATTENTION ANYMORE?!?!
No, they’re not. They won’t be until it’s too late, and they find themselves with a mark/chip in their right hands or foreheads.
If not passed by the house this means nothing.
The churches have been sitting on their pews for almost six years. They should have been fighting this tyrant the entire time instead of being afraid to lose their tax exempt status. Now they may lose their very existence.
Defeatism helps liberals. That's all it does.
Who’s defeated? Not me. In the end, God wins. It’s all in The Book.

It started a revolution around 1775.
It's defeatism. It's giving up. It helps liberals.
Seems Obama wants to push for it. If it’s about religious freedoms, Obama should think more than twice about counting on the military. They’re on our side.
That depends on what you consider defeat. When evil is defeated, no matter who perpetrates it, I call that a good thing. Those people will have chosen evil of their own free will. And the Bible would be a lie, which I don’t believe it is, if the prophecies of end times were false.
DemocRAP Dorks! It’s against the Constitution.
>> IS ANYONE PAYING ATTENTION ANYMORE?!?!
The problem for the Left is that we are.
Mark em .50 cal lead.... or save money and mark em with .308 lead....
I’d bet the raghead muzzies won’t be regulated. But news for Hussein - you will never control my religious freedom!
So was the original bill with the late LBJ while in congress pushed through that takes away NPO status to churches when preachers address political issues. By that law no church can endorse someone. Unless of course it ran by some certain Race Baiting Revurunds who be da protector of da down trodden peoples who been mistreated the last 50 years since LBJ's Great Society started handing out welfare checks.
There are Americans and then their are communist running their own private plantations using race as a means to manipulate which is where this is heading also.
Naw, we are getting rid of that stinking bill!
The churches are on the side of the marxists. Essentially have been for years. Decades in the case of the Catholic Bishops.
Think you are using way too much.
“Reckon weve reached the point where the only religion permitted will be the Church of The State. Congratulations America.”
Democrats no longer care about the 1st amendment either. I’m starting to wonder when the time comes that we will need the 2nd amendment to defend the first how we are going to be able to do that...
Washington has a massive army stocked with goons willing to cary out the will of whatever fascist sits in that house and pays their checks. Including levy war upon our people and our states.
Overthrow the dictator.
Unabashed fascism-they’re not even pretending anymore.
Mosques will be exempt. Obama granted them exclusions the first time around and he’ll do the same again.
