    “Sin” is no reason, legal or otherwise, to deny the people who work for you the right to obtain a legal, prescribed product. You don’t even have to be directly paying for it, the company will contact the females directly.

    I’m sorry, I’m not sympathetic to their cause. “Religious Freedom” has become an excuse to force every other person to follow their edicts, no matter the individual’s beliefs.

    Well said! Thank you.

    That said, I couldn’t care less about their religious morals. They don’t apply to me or to anyone else. This is a country of laws, not a country of religious morals. They are trying to use the law to limit the civil rights of citizens. That is the moral wrong here.

      yet they hide behind devious phrases like “moral majority” which is opposite of what they’re really about. Perhaps they should be covered in graffiti describing them as the Immoral Inquisition.

    Did you know Cardinal Spellman was bonafide Nazi colluder and gay pedophile?! It never gets thrown in the smug faces of anti-choicers that many of their prize institutions are named after Nazi collaborators and child rapists. Anti-choicers should be publicly shamed over their telling choices of “heroes”.

    “Christian Brothers Services”

    I wonder if this insurance company is run by the same Christian Brothers order that is getting criminally charged and sued all over the planet for allowing and protecting pedophile monks to rape students for decades? If so, this puts a criminal womb-trafficking-for-pedophile-priests spin on the nuns’ “moral objections”!

  • HeilMary1

    These mean step-Sisters need to keep their pedophile priest-blessed rosaries off their employees’ ovaries!

  • HeilMary1

    I’m also wondering if these cheapskate mean step-Sisters exploit H-1B workers from Latin America and the Philippines, thereby preventing them from “working elsewhere” because they would then lose their work visas? I’d love to see an investigation of the nuns’ employee profiles. Are they desperately supporting twenty-some SIBLINGS back home like one Vegas casino Filipino worker was doing? Are the nuns’ employees’ relatives among the 4 MILLION homeless living on garbage heaps in Tacloban?

      We’re constantly told the inquistion ended centuries ago, slavery is long gone. both are lies covered in the corporate lingo of the moment. I wouldn’t be surprised if those in the religious wrong are getting a hard on to restart the crusades if they’re not calling for it already.

    The whole point of the constitution protecting religious freedom was because of lessons learned from Europe where people fled to the new world to escape being forced to be breeding stock for the armies, church and fields (to feed the army and churchgoers.) People have forgotten why the constitution is made up of 10 amendments that come from rights fought for by the British, who incidentally are the parents and grandparents of most if not all the founding fathers if you look at the family trees. The reason is, because Henry 8th was one of the few monarchs who told the Catholics to get lost. This started about 140 years of war until the last Catholic monarch in England was chased off by the Dutch, on request from Southern British PROTESTants. Now you have 6 supreme court justices out of 9 that are Catholic and people have been brainwashed to think the inquisition was over long ago, never to return. That’s very naive. The Catholics are teaming up with their competitors, like the Mormons, to make a deal to overthrow the precious freedoms Americans fought so hard for. The inquisition is also here, right now. The proof is in the 500K people who’ve complained to the FBI that they are being harassed covertly and at work. The surveillance we have now is exactly what they church used to do hundreds of years ago to rout out heretics. By the way, Constantine declared in 350AD that “heretics” must be destroyed for disobedience to the church, and he backed it up with one of the first heretic burnings. But that’s the only reason the word has a negative connotation. It is really the exact opposite. The word heresy is based on a Greek word, which really means CHOICE. It meant the choices you make to believe what you wish, as you transition from childhood to adulthood. The Catholic church is all about taking away choice because then you must come to church and pay the collection plate and make them the richest most powerful organization on the planet – and of course, breed like a virus to grow their religious business “economy”. Hey it’s a business model that worked spectacularly well. While telling everyone to be tolerant of them, they have been sneaking up on everyone, with no intention of being tolerant whatsoever. I’m not speaking on an individual level of Catholics. Many have no idea what’s really going on. But for those who value freedom…surprise!!!

      Good summary!

    “None of the lawsuits challenging the mandate deny people access to birth control.”

    Arguable. But still they do punish people financially because

    “It does require that people working for companies that do not wish to provide this coverage must use there own money to buy it.”

    …because…?

    “Everyone sins, which doesn’t mean that this sin is ok.”

    Which means it’s okay that the quality of every employee’s healthcare coverage should be dependent on what their employer does or doesn’t consider to be sinful?

    Pretend we’re not talking about birth control and think about how a job interview/offer would go.

    • CJ99

      It could easily be said that blindly following religion is itself sinful (yes religion does require blind obedience) so health care of any kind could be denied to those attending church or mosque. If any attempt were made to enforce that you’d soon see the religious reich come out screaming about “their god given rights”

  • colleen2

    William….I know that this is difficult for you to understand but, then, your church only requires that you ejaculate into someone’s vagina whereas it requires that women agree to have a wide range of insane dogma imposed upon us so I feel I must comment. It is not a “sin” to use effective contraception. WE don’t share your religious beliefs and we do not agree with them.
    Effective birth control is an enormous benefit to society and to the individual lives of women. This is not a matter of belief, it is a matter of demonstrable and blindingly obvious fact. The arguments against the use of effective contraception are as absurd as the arguments opposing same sex marriage and that is, ion part, because the argument that effective contraception is a “sin” is unproven and absurd.

  • HeilMary1

    The alleged sin of MOTHER-SAVING contraception was a HERETIC INVENTION OF PEDOPHILE PRIESTS.

  • CJ99

    No, its about said cults using their power to control the lives of others. Churches of all flavours are marching the western world right into dictatorship and you’re cheering them on as they do it.
