And a certain middle-eastern death cult is specifically exempted from obamacare because insurance is “haram.”
Meanwhile, the government is forcing Catholics to choose between their religion and fines or jail.
We live in a totalitarian dictatorship that is actively trying to eliminate Christianity and promote the middle eastern death cult.
