The Contraception issue shouldn't be about Church and State...Submitted by Hoosieratarian on Fri, 02/10/2012 - 14:40
It seems to me that just about everyone is missing the real issues with this. Its not about protecting the separation of church and state, its about an unconstitutional mandate that forces private organizations to provide healthcare and contraception to employees.
While I'm glad the churches are finally standing up for freedoms I'm disappointed that they are only standing up for themselves. It seems to me that as long as they get their little "waiver" they would happy to let everyone else's freedoms be trampled.
What about the catholic business owner who doesn't agree with this but his business is not affiliated with the church? Or for that matter, what about any business owners who doesn't want to do it.
The churches are a powerful group, I sure hope they don't let this waiver distract them from the real issue which should be removing this type of mandate from every American, not just the church.
Come on Bishops! Would Jesus stop with a waiver???? No, he would have fought for everyone!
