Skip to comments.Obama's Final Word: Catholics Must Buy/Provide Coverage for Abortion Drugs
Posted on 06/28/2013 11:47:53 AM PDT by markomalley
The Department of Health and Human Services today released the final text of the final adjustments to the Obamacare regulation that requires virtually all health-care plans to provide cost-free coverage for sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs.
Catholics and Evangelical Christians have objected to the regulation, arguing that it violates their First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion. The Catholic Church teaches that sterilization, contraception and abortion are all intrinsically immoral. Evangelical Christians believe that abortion takes an innocent human life and is thus wrong.
The final regulation issued today provides no accommodations at all for individual Catholics and other Christians who morally object to the mandate. It also makes no accommodations for private for-profit employers who morally object to the mandate. Catholic and other Christian individuals in the United States will now be forced by the Obama administration to get coverage for sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion--whether they want it or not.
The Obama administration's mandate says: They have no choice.
In the battle between good and evil, Obama has chosen his side. May God have mercy on his soul (if Obama still has a soul).
The Politboro has spoken....
And the Catholic Bishops thought they could reason with this Muslim Homo!
Obama’s Final Word: My Mother should have got an abortion
Notice that those who practice Islam are not included. They got a waver.
another nail in the rwii coffin.
Religion must be destroyed. Religion equals morality and what is moral must be defined by the Government and not God. Separation of Church and State? No, tenets of religion must be defined by Government regulation. Maybe a new cabinet position is required.
Obama can Kiss My A@@ !! Then again as a Muslim Homo, he may like it !!!
Sad, sad times ... pray for our bishops' souls ... as leaders, and direct descendents of the Apostles, they are held to a higher standard ...
Obummer may just have to eat those words.
This really isn't a surprise to any 7 day a week believers.
I think what we will see over the next 20 years is a removal of the tax exempt status for any church that won't marry homosexuals and a loss of accreditation for all parochial schools that don't follow the education dept. mandated curriculuum. The USA is dying and being reborn as the USSA.
Liberals/progressives/socialists think churches should be happy that they're allowed to be open on Sundays. It's hard to believe this country has fallen so far so fast.
I’m not a Catholic. I stand shoulder to shoulder with them on this issue. We really need to take a stand as a people on this issue.
I don’t care if you’re an atheist, agnostic, or loathe Catholicism, this is one of those moments where they came for someone else, you stood there, and when they came for you, there was nobody left to defend you.
This punk has got to learn the Eastwood rule.
“A man has got to know his limitations.”
Wasn’t this what the so-called “pro-life” Democrats said would not happen?
I give it twelve months...
..and how much are Muslim contributing to Odungocare?
What Muslim hospitals?
Here we have the federal government threating private businesses with massive fines for not providing birth control coverage, and here in Washington State the attorney general is suing a woman who declined to provide services for a lesbian wedding. There is only one word for this - fascism. It has destroyed my family. I told my sister and brother-in-law - who support this stuff - that I will no longer attend family events.
Muslims period, since they won’t buy insurance...
My Final Word, NO!!!
I will not, do what you will, or what you can. No mater what my Final Word is NO.
You can pass a law, send the cops, hold your breath till you turn blue, I still will not do what you want.
What part of NO do you not understand??
Now we know why Obama slithered off to Africa.
To see what might be in store for us, I recommend Bruce Bawer’s “While Europe Slept.” The focus is on creeping Islamism in Europe, but it touches on wider issues. Notice - Bawer is a gay liberal, but he has retained a sense of respect for the Constitution, free speech, and human rights in general.
How do you justify calling me a Quisling?
What do you call someone who says, “they had it coming” and sides with the administration over their enemies?
Is their any chance they will keep him?
State decides accreditation. Maybe in blue states but not here. We receive no tax benefits so we are immune to the IRS.
Do a search for my posts. Thank you sir.
As far as I can see the Catholics are getting what they deserve for voting the liberal ticket . Maybe if they got behind a conservatuive ticket they might win, once we clean out the SurpremeCourt.
That is one hell of a leap into dementia there, Buddy!
The question is WILL CATHOLICS WHO VOTE DEMOCRIP NOW WAKE UP AND SEE THE EVIL BEFORE THEM IN ALWAYS VOTING FOR AND PROMOTING THESE DEVILS WHO WILL TRANSFORM THE CHURCH ANY WAY THEY CAN AND WITH THE FULL SUPPORT OF CATHOLIC DEMOCRATS?
At times it seems like that, but if we look at Europe the decline is generational. Each generation becomes more dependent on govt and is taught to look to govt for a final decision on all things. We are following the same path.
You’re assuming that the Catholics that voted democrat view Catholic doctrine to be superior to liberal humanist doctrine.
Are you certain that that’s a correct assumption?
“we should all hang together lest we hang separately”
Perhaps we are viewing the working definition of a cino, eh?
Good luck with that defense.
The coal industry is finding that govt regulation has a way of superseding any existing legal structure.
I just recognize that Obama won’t wait for anyone. He’ll push through whatever is on his nearly non-existent mind.
I do generally understand your logic, and I think you’ve got a good basis for your premise.
Trouble is this will affect Baptist hospitals and schools as well as other Evangelical Christian organizations.
I understand your frustration with the RCC and it's liberal majority. However, 7 day a week Christians end up paying the price.
We’re a Catholic school, funded by Catholic parishioners. Do you really think we would shut down our mission even if Obama declared us to be enemies of the state?
It HAS been done before.
We are ready for him to attack us and we are prepared. Obama will not last forever.
Diocletian himself only lasted 10 years. We survived then, we will survive now. Insofar as the parish is willing to help us meet with expenses and insofar as we are able to self-fund, we can resist for a long time.
I figure he’s got about 7 years to go after he decides to crack down...
The solution was to vote for the Mormon who endorsed both gay marriage and signed Romneycare into MA?
The problem isn’t that the Church failed to attack Obama - the problem is that Republicans have failed the Church.
I do not see how electing a pro abortion Mormon is superior to the Kenyan, except that the Kenyan preserves a party of resistance.
