    Well, I don't think so...

    Thank you for providing that Minie, however I can't get around the fact that after reading the questions involved the obvious conscious, deliberate wording to paint Universities and Charity Hospitals, and social aid orgs as businesses, is clear. Now, if you could do one more thing, and show where it is that the people that they questioned in this sample was listed, I can place the pieces together for you.

    My bad, I didn't read it closely enough....They still however give quite a broad definition...They say in their statement of Methodology

    About the only thing I can take from that is that the respondents were all over 18yrs of age. But, where is the breakdowns as to political ideology, religious affiliation, age grouping, etc. Also, their own affiliation with other organizations that are vested in so called 'social, and economic justice' meme is problematic...That their particular propaganda is getting better at hiding their true goals is more frightening to me than it is enlightening.

    And no I don't think they painted Universities and Charity Hospitals, and social aid orgs as businesses.

    Each question was asked seperatly:
    Do you think ----------should be required to provide employees...


    a.Religious Colleges & Universities?
    b. Religious Hospitals ?
    c. Chrches and places of worship?
    d. privately owned businesses?

    No sample demographic breakdowns, no weighting analysis. The poll isnt worth the time it took to take it without that data. Without presenting it you can skew the results as much or as little as you wish to with no effort.

    No one is prohibiting them for the free exercise. YOu confuse religion and business as if theya re the same. No clergy has to use contraceptions. No church has to preach the ebenfits of contraceptions. Nor is any establishing a religion in any way. Frankly, telling people what they can and cannot have with their own compensation is more a violation than ahving insurance given the option for everyone working in a business (not a church).

    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 then, what if the Catholic institutions said that they would no longer provide health insurance to any of its employees due to this mandate?
