    Well, to complete your analogy: In this case, the store owner is paying his employees -- in part -- with discount food vouchers to the store and thereby limiting the employees' access to pork. The heart of the issue isn't what a store must stock on its shelves, but whether a Muslim boss can put up roadblocks to a Christian's bacon breakfast.

    This administration didnt even try to be accomodating is my point. There are solutions that are decent and acceptable to everyone, the administration choose the most narrow and when pressed feel back to a position that was only slightly less narrow when they could have presented a variety of solutions and sent them to the hill to be voted on. I dont think Sebellius and Obama should have "decreed" this, it goes to show what a terrible piece of legislation the Affordable Health Care Act really is.
    How is that any different than the current compromise, in terms of the Catholic objection? I thought the whole point was the church didn't want its money going to contraception -- even indirectly. How is refunding the money better than just paying the premium?

    Its a friggin joke. He was eluding to how old he is and how things have evolved. Everyone needs to stop being so sensitive.

    Foster Friess, a prominent backer of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, raised eyebrows Thursday when he offered up his own idea for a possible contraceptive method: "This contraceptive thing, my gosh, it's so... inexpensive. Back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives."

    Friess's implication is that if women hold aspirin between their legs, they won't open them.


    OMG OMG OMG OMG. Wait for it.... Andrea Mitchell, what could she have said?
    People need to lighten up... it was obviously a joke.

    It's smart politics, but really petty in my opinion. I'm amazed that the public never gets tired of this stuff.

    You're right, the first sentence of your post is nonsense. However, it had nothing to do with what I said.

    The church does not pay for contraceptives. Medical insurance pays for contraceptives. The church, however, doesn't want medical insurance for church employees, regardless of the employees' religion, to pay for contraceptives. Therefore, the church is dictating insurance terms to the insurance company, thereby forbidding any of their employees access to contraception unless they pay full price for the prescriptions themselves. Oddly enough, the church has no problem with medical insurance covering viagra.

    The church should not be in the insurance business. The church should not be in the business of dictating personal medical decisions. The church should be in the business of telling their own parishoners how the church wants them to behave. And that should be the limit of the church's authority. Period.

    I mean, it does sound like a joke, but it doesn't really make any sense.
