    That's another issue. But more in keeping with their rights. And then they lose all those non-Catholics who work for them. But this is all yet another reason why we should have UHC and not have it attached to employment.

    Not going to happen....What Obama, Pelosi, and Reid jammed through in the middle of the night with bribes, and subterfuge is wildly unpopular with the american people as it is, and it isn't even close to UHC. But you do agree that it is an employers prerogative to carry, or not carry health insurance for employees of affiliated institutions then right?

    J, do you really think anyone will take this silliness seriously? As long as you use such hyperbolic langauge, your posts won't be treated with respsect.

    I believe right now an employer can stop using insurance as compensation. The market may make it difficult for institutions like schools and hospitals to do so. But like I said, that is a different issue, and don't try to connect them. Once you give insurance as compensation, that insurance is now mine.

    Well, not totally...Typically the employer pays a lion share of the actual insurance premium, and the employee participates with a smaller portion of the premium. This is the same principle as you saying because the government grants a loan to a particular entity that they have a say in what goes on in that business. Insurance is a benefit Joe, you are NOT entitled to it. If you think that forcing the Church to cover something in which the doctrine, and teaching of the Church is against is acceptable, then later when you carry that out to a logical conclusion, and these entities of the Church close up, and are no longer there to pick up the social net slack, then what? I swear, sometimes I think libs would rather cut off their noses to spite their face.

    Start with the entire first sentence. It's hyperbolic to say the least.

    he pays it, not for himself, or because he's a good fellow. He pays it as compensation. Like your paycheck, as part of your salary. As such, it is mine and not his even if he pays all of it. Entitlement was never used or argued. Compensation was the word I used. Don't confuse things because you can't get past the propaganda you listen to.

    And not the church. no, the business they ventured into. The church doesn't have to do anything. The schools and hospitals do. There is a difference. And this is the difference the last SC ruling mentioned.
