    To me, it isn’t separation of church and state. It’s the government forcing an organization to provide an elective service. At least the Catholic Church has a constitutional leg to stand on. It wouldn’t surprise me if the hundreds of labor unions and corporations that have been exempted from any participation in the health care act are major political contributors to the powers that be on either side.

    Not really Obama that broke down that wall, and anyone with half a mind knows that. He didn´t go in and say they should keep paying it nomatter what, but that the costs would be moved from them since they were against it – however they keep whining that the costs will go back to them nomatter what instead of coming up with a proper alternative.

    There hasn’t been a true “Separation of Church and State” ever since the Religious Right started pushing huge amounts of money to be sure their favorite candidates get elected so they can force their 15th Century agenda on the rest of us!

    Mark my words, when the Muslims start complaining they will be exempt, then you can say something about 15th century dogma. Till then your words are hollow and your argument misses the point and your hate for Christians shows.

    The thin plywood wall of separation was shredded by religion.
    They’re the ones trying to run government. They don’t like it when the one way street becomes a two way street.

    Who is calling for no teaching of sex or homosexuality in the PUBLIC schools?
    Who is talking about changing curriculum to include CREATIONISM?
    Who is trying to get rid of the possibility of abortion – even for those who AREN’T Catholic?
    Who is fighting gay marriage even if it is a CIVIL ceremony,
    Anyone STILL want to pretend it’s Obama who is destroying the wall between Church and State?
    One more LIE by the Right Wing “Christians”.

    the employees and participants of the church have constitutional rights. the church has none so long as it runs a business outside of the jesus store.

    many have the framing wrong here. we the people have the right to follow our beliefs. that means choice. choice of church, choice of medical procedures, choice of contraception.

    the church just wants government to give backing to their dogma.

    no go. see what happens when george bush breaks down some of the wall and gives ‘faith based initiatives’ money?

    should a church have to contribute to unemployment insurance? well that depends, does it have employees?

    should the church have to withold income taxes on its employees? well that depends, does it have employees?

    let the church get out of business. Let’s the churches parishioners decide which church dogma they CHOOSE to follow.

    the church heirarchy can start by following criminal law, and reporting their pedophiles to the authorities AND to the people who they have the ultimate responsibility for. the pope? NO THE PARISHIONERS.

    Sad, so much anti-Christian hate here.

    They say Hate the sin but love the sinner. I’m not a Christian, and though I find some Christian doctrine disturbing, I love many Christians.

    Just remember, Religions, ALL RELIGIONS are without a doubt the single biggest hoax and fraud EVER perpetrated on mankind since the beginning of recorded history! PERIOD!
    Al they have become now are reasons for one group of men to tell another group of men that “You don’t believe in the same imaginary friend that WE believe in, so that gives us the right to persecute you, imprison you, oppress you, declare war on you, and kill you!”

    Especially when trying to codify it into our laws, Federal, State and local.

    @onguard

    And you were probably really happy when shrubster, cheney, wolfowitz, rummy etc were totally shredding the Constitution. Just because you continuously bleat that President Obama is doing that, HE ISN’T and you haven’t provided any proof of it.

    I have the opposite take on this issue. If we are going to have health care for all it should be equal for all. Religions should not be able to say “No. We don’t want this group to have (Fill in the blank) because we don’t believe in it.” No one is saying that believers have to use contraception but it should not be unavailable to them because a religious leader doesn’t want it.
