from New Media Journal:

"Obamacare uses the Social Security language of the Internal Revenue Code to determine who is eligible for 'religious conscience' objection to the insurance mandate. Specifically, the law provides exemptions for adherents of 'recognized religious sects' that are 'conscientiously opposed' to accepting benefits from any insurance, public or private.

"As a consequence of this provision, Muslims may claim a religious exemption that is denied Christians and Jews. Since Islam believes insurance is haraam (forbidden) and likens insurance to gambling, the religion is excluded from requirements, mandates, or penalties set forth in the bill. Others who fall into this category are the Amish, American Indians, and Christian Scientists. Although the US Constitution grants all Americans equal protection of the law, some Americans are more equal than others."

Shades of "Animal Farm".

Hmmm. This could be their Achilles heel. All we'd have to do is make them really sick so that they spend all their money on treatment until they run out of cash and then watch them die.

Wishful thinking as Muslims are a healthy bunch.
Good toilet hygiene as practiced by Muslims combats parasitic infections.
Zero alcohol and drug usage eliminates many Western health problems.
Regular fasting has recognized health benefits.
Muslims are not a health burden compared to the obese slothful Yankee, rather they are a shining example of healthy living.

You are so clueless. Muslims are a shining example of intolerance, cruelty and evil. Everyone knows this except Muslims. Cannibalism is not healthy.

More drivel if you are suggesting that cannibalism is normal and widespread among Muslims.
Of course your not, so why say it.
As usual your posts are immature and not thought out.
