The Ten Commandments are etched in wood in the Supreme Court chambers. Pretty sure we base our moral laws on religion.
Freedom OF religion automatically includes freedom FROM religion.
But where in the Constitution does it say the wishes of the people about social and moral issues, i.e. abortion and gay marriage, should be ignored - even if based on religious bias?
It's not like slavery. Killing life after it's created and undermining the definition of marriage which many believe to be the foundation of any society isn't like enslaving human beings.
Slavery was clearly morally wrong. Abortion and gay marriage to many people is equally morally wrong.
The majority of democrats voted down gay marriage in California and it's my guess the majority didn't do it based solely on a religious bias.
Democrats and especially atheists against abortion don't necessarily have a religious bias in abhorring the legalization of mass killing of the unborn.
It's too simple-minded to think that moral issues are divided strictly along party lines.
Good Luck at finding a house today

you know what's funny, most voter ID laws enacted are aimed at minorities and the poor, but the sad fact of the matter is of the few voter fraud convictions there are, the majority of the guilty are white conservative republicans
maybe that's why they keep screaming about voter fraud, cause they are guilty of it and think everybody else must be doing it too

SPENDING BILL
ABC News’ John Parkinson:“House Passes $1 Trillion Spending Bill” The House voted in bipartisan fashion today to approve a massive spending package to fund the government through the end of the fiscal year, passing the measure by a vote of 359-67 and likely taking the prospect of another government shutdown off the table until at least this fall. Just three House Democrats opposed the vote on the omnibus; 64 Republicans voted against it. LINK

The Hill’s Pete Kasperowicz and Erik Wasson:“House Easily Passes $1T Ominous Spending Bill With 359-67 Vote” The House on Wednesday easily approved a $1 trillion omnibus spending bill that would fund the government for the rest of fiscal 2014 and let Congress avoid the risk of a shutdown until the end of September. Members voted 359-67 to pass the bill, which was opposed by 64 Republicans and three Democrats. The three Democrats who voted “no” were Reps. Raúl Grijalva (Ariz.), Rush Holt (N.J.) and Mike McIntyre (N.C.), a centrist Democrat who is retiring at the end of this Congress. LINK

The New York Times’ Jonathan Weisman:“In Defeat For Tea Party, House Passes $1.1 Trillion Spending Bill” The House voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday, 359 to 67, to approve a $1.1 trillion spending bill for the current fiscal year, shrugging off the angry threats of Tea Party activists and conservative groups whose power has ebbed as Congress has moved toward fiscal cooperation. The legislation, 1,582 pages in length and unveiled only two nights ago, embodies precisely what many House Republicans have railed against since the Tea Party movement began, a huge bill dropped in the cover of darkness and voted on before lawmakers could possibly have read it.

First, get up off of your lazy azz and read it.

Obviously, you are shooting in the dark here to get theatrical.

I read it. Louis read it. Others have read it.

Now it's your turn. If you need remedial help, ask your mother to read it to you.

Obamacare is costing us $600 million so the K-Rats can try and sell this lemon. Republicans want declaimers letting people know this advertising is paid for by taxpayers. I agree a disclaimer should be on the propaganda/advertising.

"Another 25 million ObamaCare victims"

It now looks like ObamaCare will hurt twice as many people as it helps — because the law isn’t nearly done with canceling people’s insurance.

The 5 million-plus Americans who’ve seen their health plans canceled thanks to ObamaCare will be joined by millions more this year — because the Affordable Care Act makes their employer-provided policies illegal, as well.

No Carol, the Little Sisters of the Poor are trying to impose their own religious objections to contraception on their employees who may or may not agree with their beliefs. Their argument is specious. A federal judge and two appellate judges in Denver have already ruled--the plaintiffs' arguments are absurd. What they're objecting to, when you boil it down, is to signing a form stating (truthfully) that they're exempt from providing contraceptive coverage to their employees. The plaintiffs' claim "reads too much into the language of the Form, which requires only that the individual signing it certify that her organization opposes providing contraceptive coverage," wrote District Judge William J. Martinez. And in this case, he added, the form "does not authorize any organization to deliver contraceptive coverage to Little Sisters' employees.
He said that requiring an organization merely to certify that it opposed contraception under circumstances hardly rose to the level of a burden on anyone's religious beliefs.
That's where freedom of choice enters into the picture. One has the freedom not to work for any religious organization whose belief system doesn't coincide with their own.

In other words, you don't have to work for a Muslim organization either if you don't agree with their belief system about contraception. The difference is they are exempt from being forced by the federal government to provide it to their employees anyway.

But do you think Muslim organizations should be forced to provide their employees with contraception even if they adamantly are opposed to it?

Yes or no.

your religious freedom only applies to your church. when you play in the real world, your myths and proven false gods make absolutely no difference. you have to play by real world rules, regardless of which sect of the abrahamic cult, or any other cult you are a member of...
