    Be honest. This is not the church having to do, but the businesses the church has branched out into. There is a difference.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    OK.

    Gloria Allred, the famed celebrity lawyer, sent a letter to the Palm Beach County Attorney's Office on Thursday saying prosecutors should consider a charge under an 1883 law making it a misdemeanor to question a woman's chastity.

    "He has personally targeted her and vilified her, and he should have to bear the consequences of his extremely outrageous, tasteless and damaging conduct," Allred said in a phone interview Friday.

    Limbaugh had no immediate comment on the letter and didn't address it in the opening hour of his radio show Friday.

    Denise Nieman, the county attorney, said she forwarded the letter to the state attorney's office, which handles criminal matters. The state attorney's office had no immediate comment.

    Allred focused her efforts on Palm Beach because Limbaugh both lives and broadcasts his show from the county. She cited a state law that says, "Whoever speaks of and concerning any woman, married or unmarried, falsely and maliciously imputing to her a want of chastity, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree."

    Non profits, and charity hospitals are being targeted for the mandate. Look, when you go to work for someone, you don't own the job, further, if you don't like the pay package then don't take the job....Far too often libs believe that they can take the job and force the change they want....This is backwards, and incorrect.

    Those are not Churches. Period. They give benefits, which count as salary. I used to work for a Catholic Hospital and they told me straight up that benefits were salary, mine. So, no, I don't buy the current Church whining.

    Did you leave, or did they fire you? Second, I don't care who you worked for really, you still didn't own that job. And you don't own the job you have now, so you either work for what they offer you, or you find other employment.

    Worked for them for ten years. Left after I fininshed school. They'd hire me back tommorow if I wanted back.

    It's nto aboujt owning the job. You have it wrong logically. It's about owing the pay they give me, the compensation they give me. They don't tell me what to do with my pay check or my insurance. I earn both.

    Don't you even read the links you submit?

    In the very first paragraph in the very first link it says:
    U.S. Catholic Church leaders said they will fight President Barack Obama's controversial birth-control insurance coverage policy despite his compromise that religious employers would not have to offer free contraceptives for workers, shifting the responsibility to insurers.
    They are talking about the mandatory coverage, and a lot of people are against it.

    You are being duped.

    I suspected as much, I imagine you are a valuable employee for any employer.

    Then you know what your insurance package includes when you take the job. As you said it is part of your pay package. So if you don't like what is offered, you don't have to work there. Benefits are not a required by law wage for labor.

    The obcure 1883 law states "Whoever speaks of and concerning any woman, married or unmarried, falsely and maliciously imputing to her a want of chastity, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree."

    It will be interesting to watch this 30 year old unmarried woman defending her chastity while also making the case that she should receive free contraceptives. I'm starting to laugh already!
