    I seem to remember from my school days that our European ancestors migrated to the U.S, in part, to escape religous persecution and enjoy freedom of religion. You may not care for some beliefs of the many different religions, BUT is religious freedom and beliefs being torn down by OBAMARE care?

      Oh, such persecution! Not giving special treatment to the church! Oh wait.. they do get special treatment. It’s called tax-exempt status. Likewise, how dare they force Christian Scientists to pay for medical coverage of any kind, since they don’t believe in it. How dare they force the Jehovah’s Witnesses to pay for coverage for blood transfusions. How dare they not allow Rastafarians to smoke pot. How dare they not allow satanists to perform human sacrifices. It’s religious persecution!

    You would never know that the USA is still a nation with a Christian majority.
    I still do not understand how the government has the right to mandate benefits that businesses offer.

      That’s because voting maps are re-drawn to minimize the impact to minorities – thus diluting the majority rule concept.

      Pleas stop with the christian majority crap. Country never was founded on that basis and never should be.

    The church seems to know a little bit about the use of invisible ink.

    Here’s a solution. Any employer who feels contraception, sterilization or abortion are morally wrong and should not be covered should sell the benefits of their postion to their employees or only hire those who share those beliefs. Therefore their employess will not utilize that coverage and their loss costs for those coverages will be reduced. Then, when their employees are having babies they can happily accept the even greater increase in premiums due to pre-natal care, birth, and post-natal services.
