    ...on their non Catholic employees?

    Churches are exempt from the ruling.

    What gives the Catholic church (or any church, for that matter) the right to force their religious convictions on employees who aren't even catholic?

    Wait!

    What?

    The Church is forcing people to work for it?

    Heaven forefend!

    On the down side... for the President. He lied to our Church... that's kind of a 'no no'... and, we are the biggest swing vote in the country... and, we have heavy populations in many battle ground states... and, we tend to hold allegiance to no man, or party... only God. Ruh oh! Obama's got a bigggggg problemo.

    Since when does the federal government have the right to force employers to provide health insurance?

    Apparently, the Catholic church thinks it can deny their non Catholic employees THEIR religious values.

    What's next? Lie detector tests to see if their employees are using birth control?

    I don't care what hyperbole you present. He loses the Catholics, he loses the election. I hope he stands firm. :lol:

    Arrogance.

    The Catholic Church likes to set up secular organizations, take billions in state aid, then force their beliefs upon the community via these secular institutions.

    Arrogance explains this.

    God will tell the Pope and them the Pope will tell the Bishops and then the Bishops will have a talk with those using condoms and their genitals will rot and fall off. very simple system.
