    Hmm - when it comes to some of these church-governed organizations like *hospitals* - I know they rely on government funds so . . . in this way: yes, I think the government should have a say.

    It's odd to think that if you go to a Catholic hospital you'll be treated different than if you go to a non-religious hospital for some type of care.

    That is where I think the line should be drawn.

    So in other words, you got caught yet again spouting BS you don't know. Would be better for you to just admit your error and move on.

    He'll move on eventually, but admit his error? Doubtful. Especially since it's a double-error - it's factually wrong AND completely irrelevant.

    Because he doesn't agree with whatever the church tells him to? By that logic anyone who does not allow the catholic church to control them and dictate their life and preferences is an atheist.

    If people have a religious objection to a government regulation, most often the government issues an exemption to allow works that benefit the public good to continue without them sacrificing their beliefs. This regulation by the administration is both very narrow and an outlier position in American law. The only states which have similar conditions are New York, California and one other state.

    Im going to guess this is going to come down to a costly court fight for both sides with Obama ultimately being struck down because he is anot accepting a reasonable demand on the part of the church to offer relief for religious belief by offering a release valve to allow patients to go elsewhere for those specific services. But, who knows what SCOTUS is going to do nowadays. Kelo stood up after all.
    it's not the church who is required to follow the mandate.

    The simple solution is for the church hospitals to hire only Catholics, use only Catholic funding, and provide services to only Catholics. Everyone wins...everyone is happy. 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.

    No your other post did not specifically say "all" but it didn't say "some" either. Your wording implied all far more than it implied some. Your hatred for catholics is glaring. Tolerance is the key here. Or do you believe that tolerance does not apply to catholics?

    I suppose I'll drop this so not to derail the thread any more than I already have. I just get bothered when people hate on a group of people for stereo types and act like its ok
    that's just silly, i don't hate catholics. i hate hypocrites.
