Following the uproar caused by the Obama Regime’s attempt to force Catholic institutions to pay for contraceptive and abortion services, the regime announced a “compromise” today.
Instead of directly paying for the services themselves, Catholic institutions would now have the services covered by their Health Insurance provider. The intention being that those opposed to paying for the services on religious grounds should have nothing to which they could object, as the money was not coming directly from their pocket.
This is patently absurd. It’s like telling a vegetarian at a restaurant that he has to pay for the steak another guest is eating. I would laugh if it wasn’t so serious.
We are in the midst of a Constitutional crisis. The President has no authority to tell insurance companies what services they must provide, much less tell religious institutions what they must pay for, regardless of their deeply held beliefs….silence from the ACLU…silence from Americans for Separation of Church and State.
