Skip to comments.Are Muslims Exempt From Obamacare?
Posted on 03/25/2010 6:08:52 PM PDT by Tribune7
Obamacare, or H.R. 3590, mandates that after 2013 everybody carries essential insurance coverage or be penalized (see Chapter 48 section 5000A). The goal of the law was to provide insurance for all obviously and making requiring everyone to buy it is certainly one way to achieve this goal.
And, of course, with everyone now pitching in the burden will be shared and rates will drop, at least that's how the theory goes.
There is a religious exemption, however, to this mandate which can be found in section d of the above section

I’m that religion.
I’m that religion.
Oops , better read the article.
Who would of thunk Obama would do it ..................
But then again all Congress people, and their STAFFS, are exempt too!!!!
This is all SOOOOOO unconstitutional.
Muslims and Amish.
My new name will be Muhammed Stoltzfus.
if you claim your a muslim you dont pay its a trick to bait the masses then implement muslim programs. muslims are patient people they will use this
MA has the Religious exemption also. I use it and pay for my own medical care as needed.
I think so. I read that buying health insurance is forbidden by the religion.
Why Muslims and Amish? Whatever the reason, Christians and Jews should proclaim this reason, too. We “suddenly” find it in our Bibles!
Sounds like it’s time to get the Church of John Moses Browning formally recognized...
Since the Amish are a Christian sect, and thus can claim a religious exemption, and Muslims can claim an exemption based on their rejection of insurance, as a form of usury, it seems to me that a Christian religious doctrine could be reasonably established that would permit modern medicine, but only on a cash basis with health care providers.
Any third parties, such as the government, or insurers, would be excluded as usurious. Likewise, health providers from that Christian religious sect would reject all government or insurance involvement in their health care relationship with patients.
This means no electronic record keeping, and the only taxes levied would be sales and income taxes.
This would have the same basic idea as home schooling based on religious preferences.
What happens when they get sick? Aren’t they using the government health plans of Britain and other European nations? Isn’t this also a form of insurance since all taxpayers must pay into the system but not all people benefit from it equally?
If you don't mind my asking, what religions (or denominations) do they exempt?
The fatwas are already out on it:
"Praise be to Allaah.
Health insurance is haraam like other types of commercial insurance, because it is based on ambiguity, gambling and riba (usury). This is what is stated in fatwas by the senior scholars. See the answer to question no. 39474 and 4210.
In Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daaimah (15/277) there is a quotation of a statement of the Council of Senior Scholars concerning the prohibition on insurance and why it is haraam:
The fact that the state makes insurance compulsory does not make it permissible; rather the burden of sin is waived from the person or company who is obliged to do that. As for the broker company which is doing this work by choice, it is guilty of sin."
Allah’u akbar mother frackers!
