by Carder It’s a disgrace when the only people with the guts to face down Obama is a group of Catholic Nuns. God bless you Sisters. ~ Country singer Charlie Daniels tweeting his support for the Little Sisters of the Poor in their legal ordeal with the Obamacare/HHS contraception mandate, via Twitchy, January 3 Extra: Tea […]

by Carder Some of the free preventive care would probably help some. But a 62-year-old woman doesn’t need maternity. She doesn’t need abortion. ~ Medicare beneficiary Ted Baumgartner, giving a mixed review of the “benefits” of Obamacare after spending more than 80 hours online attempting to sign up his wife on the insurance exchanges, ABC […]
by Carder As Americans, we should all be free to live according to our faith and to honor God in our work…. The Constitution protects that freedom so that the government cannot force anyone to act against his or her sincerely held religious beliefs. But the mandate ignores that and leaves us with a choice […]
by Carder What we have heard from the private Catholic systems is that they are going to be respectful of LGBT people, and we actually don’t doubt that… but here’s the question for us — it’s different if a person goes in with a broken arm. We know they’ll be treated with respect. The question […]

What’s at issue in two cases the Supreme Court has just agreed to hear, the Times editorializes, is “the assertion by private businesses and their owners of an unprecedented right to impose the owners’ religious views on workers who do not share them.”

From the Burlington Free Press, November 19:
The Supreme Court is expected to decide in the next week or so whether to take up the question of whether a for-profit company can deny its female employees contraception coverage in employer-provided health plans because the company owner has a religious objection.
