Of course they didů all of these right-wing bastards a nothing but hypocrites; and because they take the opposite side of what the Black President might be for or against, that makes them a bunch of racist hypocrites.

LOL. Of course!

Like I've said before....the GOP aren't against the Healthcare bill...they are just butt-hurt they weren't the ones who ushered in through the legislative process the religious mandate to help the needy and the poor first!

Where have the Republicans said they want the Catholic Church to pay for birth control? You people lie like cheap rugs. One Democrat lies and the rest swear to it. Next you will say Bush did it.

At the federal level, President George W. Bush never challenged a similar federal mandate imposed in 2000.

Contraceptives will be a part of health plans, period. The end.

Nobody expects the Catholic Church to pay for anything.'Ol PooPoo is beginning to think it's high time to revisit the issue of churches not paying taxes, and/or getting a pass on paying for water, garbage collection, etc. The entitlement mentality of Catholic bishops is becoming irritating due to these guys condoning more bad than good.

And the huge revenue streams generated by megachurches were not even imagined when governments began giving free rides to parsons and their tiny church buildings. Tycoon pastors should not build their empires without paying their fair share, same as every other entrepreneur...

Well if Obama pushed legislation that the sun come up in the morning, there would be public outcry that Obama hates nighttime and that he is restricting religous freedom not to have the sun come up.

Do you realize how many waivers the Kenyan Crusader has granted Unions, full waivers. There is no excuse for not waiving Birth control from Catholic Hospitals, and clinics. He hates all Americans, Catholics, and Jews in particular.

do you even know WHY those waivers were granted?
it's because those organizations already have contracts with insurance companies that keep their rates lower than 10% of a persons gross income.

educate yourself, you sound more and more foolish every day.

Does any one in your family work? Any in the Union? Ask them how much their medical costs? All these services are only free if you are poor, and pitiful. They rest of the people pay through the nose.

Do you realize that ALL of those waivers expire within the next 48 months?

And that the RCC has a 13 month waiver?

Of course you don't.

Of course they did. This has been going on for years - Georgia passed such mandate regulations back in '99, for instance. I know of no evidence that it caused a massive, nation-wide rebellion by the Right or by the Catholic Church, either.

At least TWO courts, in cases involving Catholic Charities, also found against the Church on this issue.

There is no freedom of religion issue here. This is a question of fairness and access to contraception for women.

End of story.

There is no reason to except businesses and facilities owned by churches from any health-care regulation. Calling Mr. Obama a "Kenyan" or falsely claiming he "hates all Americans, Catholics and Jews in particular" is virtually insane. You appear disconnected from reality.
