The whole HHS mandate thing just gets more and more depressing.  They have successfully framed the debate to go into every rabbit hole but the one concerning the free exercise of religion which the Constitution recognizes (not creates) as a right.  The Goebbelization of telling a lie long enough and often enough has formed the vapid substance of the opposition.  Avoiding talking about freedom of religion and talking about contraception ad nauseam.

  • When they talk about the cost of contraception.

What the heck does that have to do with our freedom of religion?

  • Some Catholic institutions take federal money so should have to pay for contraception, sterilization, and abortion inducing drugs.

What the heck does that have to do with our freedom of religion?

  • That forced contraceptive coverage will not cost anybody more. Even if you accept that nonsense:

What the heck does that have to do with our freedom of religion?

  • That the birth control pill is sometimes used for other things besides contraception.

What the heck does that have to do with our freedom of religion?

  • That the Catholic laity are unfortunately lax in regards to the truth of Church teaching.

What the heck does that have to do with our freedom of religion?

  • No matter what pragmatic or utilitarian argument you make relating to this.

What the heck does that have to do with our freedom of religion?

The thing is either we have freedom of religion or we don’t.  If I am forced to do something against my conscience with the bully weight of government threatening me with fines or imprisonment they have violated the first amendment to the Constitution and ultimately the natural law rights that we have.

There is no right that a person has that insurance must be paid for by their employer.  This arose historically as a way for companies to attract people.  Companies should be totally free to choose what kind of coverage they have or no coverage at all and really it would be better for employers to get out of providing insurance instead raising salaries and letting individual buy their own coverage.  The medical insurance field would be much more competitive if this were to happen.

You just can’t compromise between an actual right and something that is not a right at all.  There is no suitable compromise when you start trading of your rights for some pottage of government programs.

I find it quite despicable this obvious assault on our freedom and those who try to deny that this is a violation.  I know there are men of good will, they just don’t seem to run for office and instead we have partisans on both sides who will shred the Constitution as long as they get something they want out of if.

“The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected.”

Right now the conservatives are working very hard to prevent this mistake from being corrected by nominating a guy that shilled for the mandate at a federal level and forced Catholic hospitals to use Plan B. Four more years of President Obama and exactly what rights and freedoms will we have left?

This issue should be an all hands on deck reaction and not just an issue for faithful Catholics.

  1. Hey Jeff seeing that Victor is too lazy and/or too sick because of “Lent”, I’ll kick things off for ya cause we gods can dance with the best of them. All your following cells need do is worship U>S and we’ll straightened “IT” out for ya in the long hall. True our first choice was Victor’s Kingdom cause he’s kept U>S so called (usual sinners) very con hurt able for years NOW and you know what, the only cells who care to follow U>S are “Green Flemish cells” who don’t even care what they spit out.

    Don’t tell any body cells especially those 7% so called “Jesus” cells of this body cause we’ve got our spiritual anges, “I” mean let’s stick to English here and not French which is angels on high to take care of U>S gods. Those old time French Men are nothing but a bunch of show off and if you don’t believe me, just go back in time and see them spit green stuff on the floor that the woman worked so hard to keep clean. Women join U>S so we can put an end to them cause there’s no need for them to have misse the spit toon so often and make you woman clean “IT” UP.

    This is “The Twenty First Century” and no woman should have to put down, “I” mean UP with all of this cause “IT” doesn’t feel good at all.

    I hear Jeff! “What the heck does this have to do with our freedom of religion and if you don’t mind sinner vic, me and my readers with wait until after “Lent” to hear “IT” from “The Horse Mouth” Victor, if you get my drift?

    Come on Jeff! What can Victor do for ya that we alien gods can’t do for ourselves and besides if Victor starts his new so called Religion, He’ll be calling “IT” The Jesus, Victor, Lord and Redeemer Church” and we gods can’t have that, can we NOW?
