    The Court said (at page 162): "Congress cannot pass a law for the government of the Territory which shall prohibit the free exercise of religion. The first amendment to the Constitution expressly forbids such legislation." Of federal territorial laws, the Court said: "Laws are made for the government of actions, and while they cannot interfere with mere religious beliefs and opinions, they may with practices."
    That's right and forcing someone into a practice that goes against someone's religious beliefs is s violation of the first amendment. Concientious objectors are protected by the first amendment.

    The 1st Amendment doesn't respect or prohibit freedom of religion. Allowing Catholics to deny health care to non-Catholics on the basis of religion is preferential treatment.

    They not denying healthcare to anyone. They're refusing to pay for birth control and abortions to anyone. They're not treating anyone any differently than anyone else. Don't propagandize the facts.

    If health-care was a "right" you'd be correct. It's not.

    They're refusing to provide insurance which pays for health care and medical procedures.

    They're refusing to pay for birth control and abortions to anyone. They're not treating anyone any differently than anyone else. Don't propagandize the facts.
    So does every employer who has a problem with abortion/birth control get a free pass?

    Again I ask, why should religious objection allow you to dodge any law you feel like?

    I have a deep religious objection to speed limits.

    I say the Democratic Senate should open one up. That's how to play hardball with the baggers.
    If there was illegal activity under Bush it should have been investigated....However it's been 4 and a half years since Bush has been in office and saying "Bush did it too!!" is just a childish attempt to minimize the current administrations illegal activity.

    This country was founded on the freedom of religion and has been a corner stone on which this country was built....To deny that now pretty much says the separation of church and state no longer applies and the government is free to impose it's will on what any religion can and cannot believe in.

    Apparently freedom of speech/religion is no longer tolerated by the Left.
