    Sounds like a great idea. I wish the best of luck in getting around a whole encyclopedia of civil rights acts, amendments and state laws concerning discrimination.

Same with ALL charitable organizations. They should only employ people that agree with them, should only serve people that agree with their services and rely only on charitable donations.
    Ignoring the civil rights implication of them doing that, good luck to the hospitals staying in business. They are kept going by non-Christians seeking services from them.

    Atheist movement about money? That is absurd.

    I've never seen an atheist on TV begging for people to "give til it hurts". I've only seen Christian televangelists do it...

    Well first you most likely can carve off some of that 28% to the Catholics that do not care what the pope says they will still use birth control and really don't care. Second why does the U.S. ultimately fall under the hierarchy of the pope?

    If the pope does change his position that birth control is to use then it would be Ok, would that end the fight?

    You don't have to work there, if you so strongly disagree with a well established doctrine. Why would you think that just because you are employed there, that you can force a change of hundreds, no, thousands of years of doctrine by the Church? You don't own the job.

    It isn't just Catholics that are concerned by this severe over reach by HHS here. If this is allowed to stand, then government has effectively done away with religious freedom in this country. Do you think that is a good thing?

    Second why does the U.S. ultimately fall under the hierarchy of the pope?
    Are you involved with a religion of any kind?

    If the pope does change his position that birth control is to use then it would be Ok, would that end the fight?
    The last chance for that to happen in our lifetime was in Vatican II. This type of hypothetical is silly, since it is a ridiculous scenario.

It's highly absurd that they believe condoms are immoral yet the Bishops who aided in the protection of pedophilia are still in positions of power and influence.

    You Catholic haters always bring up the priest thing when you are clueless about it........Do you have any idea about how many priests were involvewd in the scandal..........Less then 1%...
