Obamaphiles have tragically over-reached and now they are getting serious blowback.
Think about it: the LDS church standards are to not drink coffee. It’s against the church’s teachings. Now coffee has some health benefits attached to it (as well as some issues). Let’s say Obama and his minions said that all LDS businesses had to provide coffee. You know, for the health of everyone. All LDS hospitals had to make coffee available. When there was an objection, the Obama administration dictated that the LDS hospitals had to pay into a fund and the fund would use that money to provide coffee. Would that be acceptable?
Yet that is precisely what the Catholic church is faced with. Now I may have no problem with birth control or coffee, but that certainly is NOT the point. The point is force (a lefty occupational hazard).
I know many Mormons who would rather go to jail than to violate their moral convictions. I bet there are a lot of Catholics who feel the same way (and in fact I know many). This is an egregious violation of civil liberties and and a work of despotism. All rational people should object. We are all Catholics now.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
This should be a major issue in the upcoming general election. Because while I personally may have no problem with contraception, and have a real problem with a government who forces people to violate their moral codes. And don’t kid yourself–You are next. Birth control or coffee may not be an issue for you. But my guess is that something is.
