Obama's goal is to secularize everything, including religion itself.

    The secularists of the French Revolution regarded the Roman Catholic Church as the last obstacle to atheism's final triumph. Blurting this out, the French dilettante Denis Diderot proposed to his fellow revolutionaries that they strangle the last priest with the "guts of the last king."

    Under this spirit, the forces of secularism picked up speed in the 18th and 19th century, went into overdrive in the 20th, and now floor it in the 21st. Barack Obama is the one these revolutionaries have been "waiting for." He is the stealth radical, soft in temperament but hard in thought, who seeks to use religiosity without religion to purge all traces of God from public life.

    ...

    Obama's secularism is like an acid that burns through everything it touches. His poisonous ideology authorizes him not just to "separate church and state" but to dominate church and state. The goal of this control is to secularize everything, including religion itself.

    Contained within his secularism is a totalitarian seed, which will grow and grow until nothing is a "private" matter. As the hapless executives at the Komen Foundation recently learned--after committing the thought crime of withholding private donations from abortionists--no one is free to leave Obama's Animal Farm.

    Some pigs on it are more equal than others, and, remember, the secularist Napoleons can never be wrong. Listen carefully enough to Kathleen Sebelius's defense of Obama's raping of religious freedom and one can hear the thuggish voice of totalitarianism. Did you see what she cited as proof of Obamacare's respect for conscience? That the government will refrain from injecting Catholic women with birth control! Wow, what a thoughtful regime. Even one of Stalin's party hacks might have grinned at the crude logic of that one.

    I agree it's a 1st amendment issue, but IMO it's the people being denied insurance because the RCC wants to enforce religious tenets on their employes, that are suffering from the violation.

    church rule? of course not......it is Obama who wants the Church to follow Secular State enforced rules that directly conflict with Church beliefs....that is against the First Amendment.....

    if BO can do that.....he is effectively ripping up the Constitution....if he gets away with that what crap will he pull next...?

    then those employees should not go to work for such a dastardly religious organization....:eusa_hand:

    and what's preventing them from simply going to the local pharmacy and buying their own contraceptives.......:cuckoo:

    if Obama can force churches to go against their principles.....he has the power to overrun the Constitution.....to "secularize" religion....

    No one is being 'denied insurance'. The Church is asking that insurance companies are allowed to provide insurance policies that do not include birth control. It is as simple as that.

    If you tried logic instead of hyperbole, you might just understand the issue.

    When the government tries to apply those rules to a church ITSELF, not merely to a non-religious operation that a church OWNS, then I'll take the OP's assertions seriously.
