What a nut job. If all employees of all employers in America are Christians, then sure get the Jeebus Healthcare plan. Since they are not, the bible nutjobs should not force their views on healthcare for everyone. If they don't want contraception or abortion, don't use it. it is simple.

If the Attorney General wants to talk his bishop into going to jail, then I sure won't stand in his way.

...in a few more words than one: a prime symbol of everything that is wrong in politics. Its full of extremist nut jobs.

If the head law enforcement guy for Virginia is telling people to break the law, doesn't that sound like grounds for dismissal or something?

This guy may be our next governor. He wants to make it a law in Virginia. What gives him the right? I'm sick of the Catholic Church.

"The Catholic Cuccinelli said he had spoken to a bishop who suggested he'd go to jail to protest it. Cuccinelli said he told the bishop, "don't take this personally - you need to go to jail."

One little problem with this deception future-guv:

"all churches—or any other type of house of worship— are expressly exempted from the requirement that they offer health insurance to their employees that includes any provision for contraception"

We are looking forward to your campaign.

And will Mr. Cuccinelli next propose that Roman Catholicism be made the official religion of the Commonwealth of Virginia? The mind boggles. Truly a man who seems to want to be governor so he can spend taxpayer dollars tilting at social windmills and maximizing his future talk radio worth. By the way, what does he really think of the current governor's outlandish new transportation proposal? Now there's a real issue the AG could bring his political outspokenness to. Yes, he issued a statement--which shows he can be as circumspect and mealy-mouthed as the best of them. When it suits his personal goals.

This is the first time I have ever heard of a state's chief law enforcement official advocate for others to break the law. This should not only disqualify him from holding that job, it should also get him dis-barred. We need to recall the attorney general now. What an embarrassment he is to virginia, and how much bigger that shame will be if he is elected governor (but at least in that job he wouldn't be committing legal malpractice).

Isn't it satirical that one who would espouse Constitutionality would promote and suggest those to defy it?

It defies logic that white republicans are trying to defend future minority democrats.

Don't you just love the hypocricy of liberals? A conservative suggests civil disobedience as a tactic and they get their panties in a wad. When the "occupy" idiots actually practice civil disobedience,they fawn all over them.

He's the state's top law enforcement officer promoting breaking the law. I guess it's too much to expect from you to understand that.

I am a conservative, financially but I will tell anybody that the cooch is a moron, simple minded, but in this case is supposed to be enforcing the law. He should be shown the door immediately. Right is right and wrong is wrong, and this guy is a moron.

People in our government are trying to take our FREEDOMS to choose away. If you do not like the insurance company that your employer has, you have the right to buy your own insurance. Your right to birth control should not take my right away.

Your freedom to choose is intact. Just don't charge your contraception to insurance or whatever you do not want to do, don't do it. At the same time, whomever wants to do it, let them do it. There is a whole lot of other shit we have to fix in this world. Spending time and money on who gets reimbursed for contraception should come after fixing everything else.

Mr Cuccinelli is always complaining about something. I don't think he'll get many VA votes, if he runs for Gov!!

Thank you, Ken, for doing the right thing and being constitutionally correct. MLK and Rosa Parks went to jail too. I want to have a Governor who will stand tall for my rights as a Virginian and as an American.
