An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
The Justice Department will defend against any legal challenge to the new Obama administration mandate to force employers to provide abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization and contraception, even if it goes against their conscience, Attorney General Eric Holder told a House subcommittee Tuesday.
The Department of Health and Human Services rule, part of Obamacare, violates the freedom of conscience for Catholics and other religious groups that expressed their objections to the mandate, opponents say. Already there is litigation asserting that the rule violates the First Amendment’s guarantee to free exercise of religion.
And may the REAL Force be with them! Isn’t it odd that Holder refused to prosecute what was clearly voter intimidation, but can’t be concerned that his boss’ plan murders children, and forces those who find such a practice abhorrent to pay for it? This is NOT about ‘women’s health’.
“I think I would respectfully disagree in the sense that I don’t think the rule that HHS promulgated was one that ran counter to the religious prohibitions that are contained in the First Amendment,” Holder said.
“That’s especially true looking at the compromise the president and Secretary [Kathleen] Sebelius put in place,” Holder told the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies.
Wouldn’t you think that a lawyer would understand the U.S. Constitution better? You see, that document was written FOR the people, limiting what government can, and cannot do! The government cannot force a religion on the people, and they cannot force religions to go against their faith. Forcing religious organizations to violate their faith is violating their 1st Amendment RIGHT! The RIGHT that is God given. Forcing people to commit a sin? No…they do NOT have that power, as stated BY, not just the Constitution, but in a Book that was written long before they were a “gleam”, with the inspiration of the Hand of God. HE trumps Obama, Sebelius, Holder, and the other tools of evil.
President Barack Obama announced a change to the original rule that would have technically allowed religious institutions such as Catholic hospitals or schools to get an exemption from paying for these drugs, but instead require insurance to provide it for “free.” That so-called compromise would still require religious institutions to pay for insurance that provides the “free” services.
They really do think we’re all stupid. Apparently, it totally confounds them when they find out we are not! There is no such thing as “free”!
