    Re: Catholics hear anti-Obama letter in church

    Why do we feel we have to impose this on a group of people who don't want it? We know better for them?

    imposing Catholic law is no different than imposing Sharia law.

    we should allow folks to rape their daughters, if Hinduism allows it?

    So, If I believe that man answers to a higher power, then automatically I must subscribe to the fringe extreme of all religions? That is a really deep seeded hate you have there for religion in general, and quite a skewed view of those who have spiritual guidence in their lives.

    Actually, it is the other way around in this case....The administration is imposing upon the Church, not the other way around.

    Name a town where this is so.

    Not to protect the church from big gov, the opposite.

    You've got congregations all around the country listening to a person of authority, their parish priest, lecture them on politics and sexuality.

    Just like in Europe, the pope tries to be the head of all the countries, the supreme authority. And Henry VIII said no. Granted, it was all about the Nookie.

    That is like saying that the Constitution guarantees us protection FROM religion....Totally skewed.

    you have every right to believe in whatever you like.

    however, you have NO right to impose it on others, especially your employees.
