So religious primacy over government is affirmed again. Feh.
Funny how permeable that Wall between Church and State has become. It used to be something you could rely on. You wouldn't get forced to observe somebody else's religious strictures. Now you get pushed every which way. How long until Sharia'a is ruled as an aspect of religion which must be observed if your employer is a Muslim regardless of your own beliefs.
Congratulations on the end of Freedom of Religion, and Freedom From Religion. How proud you must feel.
gives us the freedom OF religion, Rob........that means the STATE isn't allowed to dictate rules that change that. Too bad you haven't figured that out. But we fortunately have SOME judges still willing to rule by the strict letter of THAT law.
"the Obamacare birth control mandate"
Did Obama mandate birth control?
Or--as I've heard--was there a change in a mandate to furnish birth control as part of a health care policy?
Is there a difference?
Yes, it's mandated in Obamacare
even for people too old to have any kids anymore or even want any.....along with maternity and pediatric care.
I think technically insurance coverage of birth control
is mandated, not mandating birth control.
Mandating birth control would be modeling after the Chinese I guess.
Remember long time ago, someone claiming there was a plan to add birth control to water supplies.
TUVM for adding
light instead of heat to the discussion.
to be honest, was a bit of nitpicking to "rib" ya
Not nitpicking IMO; important info
that is often ignored on discussions.
by mandating coverage, they are also mandating control if you want to get technical about it because self-insured Catholic organizations are required to offer it, and those who use the coverage are using it for control. Semantics......
coverage use, control maybe, use NO
No, they aren't
There is nothing in the ACA requiring people to practice birth control. "If you want to get technical about it." My insurance will cover me if I break every bone in my body skydiving but that doesn't require me to go skydiving.
