    Catholics sue Obama over birth control mandate

    Dozens of Roman Catholic dioceses, schools and other institutions sued the Obama administration Monday over a government mandate requiring most employers to provide birth control coverage as part of their employee health plans.
    The lawsuits filed in federal courts around the country represent the largest push against the mandate since President Barack Obama announced the policy in January. Among those suing are the University of Notre Dame, the Archdioceses of Washington, New York and Michigan, and the Catholic University of America.
    “We have tried negotiation with the administration and legislation with the Congress, and we’ll keep at it, but there’s still no fix,” said New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “Time is running out, and our valuable ministries and fundamental rights hang in the balance, so we have to resort to the courts now.”

    More power to the church in this case.

    Must you continue to derail threads by calling Obama beautiful, I know you feel the need to tell the whole world but we have more pressing issues at hand.

    No wonder the Catholic church is losing members daily.
    They are fast becoming history and it won't be the 1st time an organization failed to keep up with the times and disappears.

    While I'm not sure the number is quite as high as 98%, I'm pretty sure that the number of Catholics that use BC is pretty high. At least over 75%. So I highly doubt that all of those Catholics who do use BC would also feel that the BC/Catholic conflict in this case was a high priority in who they vote for.

    In fact, it looks like even an expert trying to refute the 98% claim actually admits that it is closer to about 85%. That's a pretty high number considering the church is against BC.

    The claim that 98 percent of Catholic women use contraception: a media foul - The Washington Post

    Don't get me wrong, I think its great so many people are using BC despite beliefs against it (it shows people are questioning the sense of what their religion is teaching). My mother used BC, is Catholic, and still managed to have 6 of us.

    Religion doesn't get you exempt from whatever laws you feel like, sorry.

    You stick your foot out of the church and the separation of church from state no longer applies. Bitching about their businesses having to abide by the same business regulations as everyone else should get them thrown out of court with hefty fines imposed for wasting the court's time with self-important bull****.

    And the Presidency doesn't give you dictatorial power to order entitlements.

    Obama has no more right to force entities to provide birth control free of charge than he does to make you clean my toilet.
