I’m on some unsure footing here but……

Yesterday, the president backed off his order to force all religious organizations to provide birth control for their employees. But that has not really solved the problem. He has just cast an unconstitutional move in a new light.
The title of this post is true. I don’t like to venture into controversial topics because I don’t want to take the time to research the topic at hand.

But this one just just reared up and slapped me across the face. I don’t want to comment one way or another on the merits of birth control because I believe that is a personal decision. I will say that if anything, the government should be encouraging citizens to have children. It stands to reason that if we don’t maintain our own population, then other folks will maintain it for us. I’m not crying that the sky is falling or that I’m against immigration, it’s just a fact of life.

What really bothers me about this is that President Obama is infringing on the rights of others and dictating to private companies how they are to conduct business. It flabbergasts me that people such as the president of Planned of Parent hood (I didn’t catch her name) and certain democratic politicians thinks this is perfectly okay. Are they so blinded by their own agendas that they cannot see the precedent this President is setting??

The next time, it may be an order that they are not promoting. Then what the hell do they (and we, as well) do?

Either someone draws a line in the sand now or this country is finished.

    To be it’s even worse. This is the government telling a religion they are forced to do something that is against their religion. I don’t have to agree with agree with the Jewish kosher tradition, but I shouldn’t be allowed and the government shouldn’t force my a Jew to eat bacon just because I love it.

    It’s the same thing. It doesn’t matter who agrees or disagrees with the strict no birth control stance of the Catholic Church, it matters that the government is now telling the Catholic Church they are FORCED to provide something that they have a religious objection to. The supposed exemption is for the church ONLY, not the Catholic hospitals and other Catholic organizations.
