    Dear christian churches, if you are so dead set against contraception, how about giving back all the money given to you from tax payers, particularly from the office of faith based initiatives? Failing that, give ME the tax dollors I payed into it. As an atheist, I’m offended I have to subsidize the church.

    Actually condom to the poor is not a bad idea. The poor of most countries have more children due in part ot lack of education, lack of money and having no other source of ‘entertainment’.

    my question for heavyb=heavyb, document your claim that taxpayers subsidize churches. Churches operate on members tithes and gifts for the most part. Those members work and pay taxes the same as nonchurch people.

    ^this one is easy disgusted. bush started faith based initiatives under executive order, and end run around congress. Christian organizations have recieved over 98 percent of those funds, how come none went to moslems or jews or anyone else? how much. to the tune of 40 billion a year.

    talk about politiciians buying votes!!!!!

    yes, a huge amount of our taxpayer dollars go to christian causes here and abroad.

    you can’t claim separation AND take that kind of money.

    Oh yes,, they do. But a whole lot of Christian Churches never touched the Faith Based Dollars. If Bush had wanted to help churches & non profits of all faiths, he’d have just reincreased the tax deductions for noprofit giving that went away while his Dad was president. Albeit, the Democrats helped make it go away, but with the Republican majority in congress he had most of his yrs. in Office, such a move would have been a cinch. He would still gotten the votes from the same people & saved a lot of $ and if he had been successful, well, then, a lot of really good work would have been done without the involvement of the Big Bad Federal Government that so many of my right wing friends seem to detest, until it’s their turn at the government feedbag.

    The point of this cartoon is “which issue is the president interested in?” Hint: it ain’t unemployment.

    Oh, you righties and your poor conscience! How do you justify the fact that your conscience tells you to deprive women and minorities of the same rights afforded rich, white, old guys?

    And I guarantee you if the rest of us didn’t make you treat others not like you with respect, you’d find some other reason we’d violated your precious, freaking conscience.

    No, he isn’t. McCoy’s mendacity has no boundaries.

    @Noveltman

    Eh? My poor conscience? First, this is not a deprivation of “rights” against women and minorities. It is an argument against violation of the separation of church and state. It’s about the fact that you are talking about a program that is directly violating one of the fundamental rights enshrined within the US Constitution. Forcing religious organizations to violate their tenants because some beaurocrat in Washington decided that $9 a month is too much to swing for birth control pills is wrong and a direct Constitutional violation.

    And if $9 is too much, go to planned parenthood. I’m sure if they are in the business of providing abortions they certainly provide pre-emptive abortions (aka morning after pills).

    And my argument? How is a morning-after pill, or even a 7-day-after pill for the woman’s health? That has NOTHING to do with the safety and health of a woman. Don’t spin this into something that Obama is doing this for the health of women. I call BS. It’s just one more form of control that he is trying to put on non-governmental organizations.

    @Farley55

    And you made the point here. The toon is that the President is more focused on violating constitutional rights and providing birth control than he is on getting Americans back to work.

    “It’s about the fact that you are talking about a program that is directly violating one of the fundamental rights enshrined within the US Constitution. Forcing religious organizations to violate their tenants…”

    As I’m sure you already know, Evangelical Christianity is only one of many, many different belief systems. Obama’s policies aren’t forcing CATHOLIC women to use birth control (laugh out loud for the fact that over 90% of them use it anyway, over the presumably loud objections from male church leaders)…these policies only require that any—ANY—employer cover necessary health costs, such as birth control. (laugh out lout for Rush trying to make the case that girls who have LOTS of sex, must need LOTS of pills). And I believe a compromise was made here that should have been satisfactory for both sides, if only Republicans had consensus in mind instead of browbeating the President.

    In summation: Keep your ridiculous Bronze Age beliefs out of public policy please. We don’t force our way into your hilarious places of worship to peddle facts, and logic, and conclusions.
