    I just read this, so if there is another thread on the topic, my apologies and would ask the mods to merge it. Also, if this is wrong, and any of the liberals / Dems want to refute it, please do so. Because, frankly, I find it stunning that this is true. I can't believe the Democrat party would do something this stupid. (Of course, the conservatives will replay "Why not?")

    With gaffe-a-day-Romney and Barack Oncompetent the two candidates, it could be an interesting battle of two guys dueling to shoot themselves in the head faster than the other guy.

    I'm disappointed to hear you say "Democrat party." You're generally above that sort of thing.

    And my understanding is that it's a statement that "Catholic run institutions" are subject to the same regulation as other businesses if a certain amount of employees are not in fact Catholic.

    It's also my understanding that churches are exempt.

    There is at least one thread about it, but you are not wrong. The Bishops have written to their parishes about it. 36million Catholic registered voters in the US... and he decides it's a good thing to take us on. He's not only an idiot, he's crossing the fucking line between Church and State.

    If this stands, Catholic institutions - including hospitals and schools - will be forced to close their doors to non-Catholics. Given that we fund services for Americas most poverty stricken.... I find it fucking outrageous.

    But their employer is the Catholic Church - and birth control is against our religion - particularly abortion - which is abhorrent to us. It is, to Catholics, murder.

    The last time Obama tried understanding that church's cannot make their own rules the Supreme Court ruled against him unanimously.

    Real Simple... Catholic based Hospitals don't want to take part in the AHA? Fine... No Federal funds...saves the taxpayers money, I guess.

    If the party at large is against this, then I retract that line.

    Are they?
