Obama says ‘freedom of religion is under threat’ as Catholics sue administration
Not surprising in the least. We’ve seen the same logic from the HHS Mandate supporters the entire time. “By not funding my contraception, you are somehow forcing me to follow the Catholic Church!”
And I’ve said it before, I’ll likely say it again, it is sad, not just to have to remind the nation that religious liberty is not forcing employers to ignore their religion…not just that we have to remind people of the incredibly obvious natural law that “sex makes babies”….
but also that people are not incredibly creeped out by their boss being forced by the law to fund their sexual activity. If my boss offered to cover that expense, my first reaction would not be “Actually I’m Catholic, so that won’t be necessary” but “Why in the world would you want to do that? That is weird. And gross. And creepy.”
By not providing me a bag of pork rinds every day, I am being forced to follow the dietary laws of both the Jews and the Muslims.
Well, technically he’s right, even if he’s not right in the way he thinks he is. This spake he not of himself; but being the President that year, he prophesied …
what exactly did he say that was false here?
No one’s accusing him of saying anything false; it’s the fact that he says this while actively persecuting the Church that’s Chutzpah.
I thought “freedom of worship” was the New Hotness in the Obama administration. Must’ve been a slip of the tongue!
