    Of course, the government can't force a store to carry a particular product. It can't force a Jewish deli to carry ham, either, or make the Apple store carry PCs.

    and it's already been established that it can't make Catholics pay for birth control.

    I think it's called... what is it again? Socialis.... no, that's not it.. Oh yes! Free market capitalism, that's it.

    Re: Force Muslim Grocers to Carry Pork

    Can the Federal Government force a business to violate the Muslim owners religion by forcing him to sell pork?

    No! Only the the states Christian Government can do that. Did I get this correct?

    BTY, I think a Muslim store owner's religion allows him to sell pork.

    No, it doesn't. Isn't the answer to this question pretty obvious?

    A Catholic hospital providing the only source of hospital care in an area should use it's dominance to require all patients and their immediate families to convert while care is being provided. Not even local government should be allowed to get in the way of that.

    Yes. It has been a concern. What if our young people got caught up in it!

    The government gives $2.9 billion a year to Catholic Charities.

    Why do I get the feeling that this thread (no I haven't read it all) is actually about contraceptives and the catholic church and obamacare?

    Get serious, I watched 10 seconds and stop after I heard that.

    Unless someone can point to a real exactly of something being forced to go veggie or whatever to a radical and whacky combination of coincidences there's no argument to be made.
    Well, you need to watch past it. My point was that if a Muslim chose in the matter of the example to exercise their religious liberty, the right would be all over the cries of "sharia law!" Here, Muslim cab drivers exercised their religious liberty and refused to carry customers with alcohol, and Muslim cashiers wouldn't handle bacon. What happens? Fox starts shouting "Sharia law in Minnesota! Minnesota is becoming an islamic state!"

    I do not think that the conservatives fully understand things.
    Of course, "forcing" is not good; but then why must our government be pushed into a corner and then have to "force".
    That affordable health care is the law of the land is the thing that the conservatives must to to grips with...much like social security and the whiskey tax , to name two.
    Health care is different than what people sell or do not sell.....
