Obama's Final Word: Catholics Must Buy/Provide Coverage for Abortion Drugs
Cybercast News Service ^ | 6/28/2013 | Terence P. Jeffrey

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).

He can go to Hell. If the Catholic Church is forced in some way by this dead soul servant of the most low, then the sonofabitch has shown the Constitution is no longer a binding document and open season should start immediately thereafter. With Roberts on the high court (no caps on purpose) any command little barry sonofabitch makes will be upheld regardless of Constitutionality.

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.

Hard to fight back when our "leading" Cardinal in the U.S. (cough! .. NYC.. cough!) will not stop it from ALREADY happening in his own backyard ...

Sad, sad times ... pray for our bishops' souls ... as leaders, and direct descendents of the Apostles, they are held to a higher standard ...

The final regulation issued today provides no accommodations at all for individual Catholics and other Christians...

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.

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.

Has Obama established/created a new religion?
He didn't like the Catholic religion so he ordered it to be changed into a religion that he approves of.

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.

State decides accreditation. Maybe in blue states but not here. We receive no tax benefits so we are immune to the IRS.

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.

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?

The Bishops had their chance. They could have ordered all Pastors to take to their pulpits in the weeks leading up to the election to instruct their flock that you can NOT vote to re-elect this man and remain a Catholic in good standing

Instead they chose to cower in the corner and post cryptic statements in bulletins and on parish websites.

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.

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.
