    Apparently the courts are not all that impressed with the attempts of the Obama administration to redefine the word church.

    I have a hard time seeing this as good news. Granting special legal exemptions to religious groups does nothing to protect health care freedom. In fact, this kind of policy is the meat and potatoes of the corporatist state, where government is a game of handing out such favors ad-hoc fashion to address the political clout of special interest groups.

    It's a mistake to see the injustice of these mandates as a freedom of religion issue. It's a freedom issue, and applies to all of us equally - not just religious groups.

    Anything that chips away at the power of the state is good news.

    The equate IUDs and Plan B with abortion? Is that what I am reading?

    The government should stay out of it, but their females employees should sue them, especially if they cover such things as Viagra.

    No, what you are reading is that the HHS mandate lumps all methods of contraception under the same definition. Tyndale is opposed to any form of contraception that prevents a fertilized egg from implanting.

    But that's the issue. It doesn't. Allowing government to grant special favors to interest groups magnifies its power tremendously.

    They don't have to cover birth control as long as they are not tax exempt anymore. Problem solved.

    The huge surprise is you wanting to impose your religion on other people.
