    Who named you arbiter of framing the debate? Funny I didn't see you standing up for the little sisters of the poor wishing not to have to pay for contraceptive services.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Weak and sloppy debate skills.
    You mean like posting a picture instead of using your own words?

    If the words match my feelings, there is nothing wrong with that. When you have to resort to screaming "liberal" you already lost the debate.

    Well this statement tells me you know nothing more than the propaganda about that story. The Little Sisters of the Poor were not ordered to pay for contraceptive services. Do a bit of non-biased reading to find the true story.

    I see, anything that runs contrary to your conclusion is propaganda.

    You don't get to declare that.

    Another example of just why political conversations so often turn into circle spinning. I post, "Do a bit of non-biased reading to find the true story." and the response seemingly says I don't care what I read or hear that contradicts my beliefs because I KNOW THE TRUTH!"
