New HHS Mandate Amendment Still Violates First Amendment

Proposal to amend ObamaCare contraceptive rule met with skepticism | Fox News.

Kathleen (Cruella) Sebelius, has slightly broadened conscience exceptions in the HHS mandate. The new amendment still shows her desire to remove all of those who religiously object to paying for birth control, abortion and sterilizations, from the world of business. This is much worse than a status of dhimmitude for strict opponents of abortion, and would serve to force them out of the taxable portion of the U.S. economy. With this amendment, the administration shows that it is not serious about addressing the debt problem by allowing the INFLUX of tax dollars.

The HHS mandate remains a significant part of the many pronged effort by the Obama administration to remove the United States from its position as a world economic leader.

Obama Has Irritated Speaker Boehner

“This attack by the federal government on religious freedom in our country cannot stand, and will not stand,” Boehner, a Catholic and Ohio Republican, said in a rare floor speech,  says  The Blaze.

Let’s see if the House and Senate are able to Override the Obamacare birth control mandate.   Pharmer suspects house can do it, but the Senate had 26 freaks who directly support Obama’s mandate for religious institutions to cover birth control, abortive drugs and sterilizations in their health insurance plans.

The government plan is to have Christians pay the STATIST  DHIMMI  TAX in the form of fines, as a result of being forced to drop health care coverage for their employees.     Interestingly, adherent Muslims may be subjected  to this same situation with respect to  the state, but  (if we compare their response in  Europe)  are much LESS likely to tolerate dhimmitude to the state.

The top linked article mentions that Massachusetts has already been forcing religiously affiliated hospitals  to give out the morning after pill to rape victims, from the time that Romney was governor.    Romney says he vetoed the bill, though he supported the morning after pill for rape victims.

Welcome to Dhimmitude, Pro-lifers

Obama admin: birth control mandate is final; bishops vow to fight | LifeSiteNews.com.

“In effect, the president is saying we have a year to figure out how to violate our consciences,” said Archbishop Timothy Dolan.

From the statement above, you think the U.S. Catholic Bishops have a plan for dealing with their most favored President Obama?

There’s a debate over at JillStanek.com to see if people think the Bishops will stand up to Obama, or will they begin covering the pill, or will the religiously affiliated institutions  pay the Dhimmi tax in order to be allowed not to cover the birth control pill.

The Dhimmi tax is the amount of money that religiously run hospitals would have to pay for each employee, in order to stop health care coverage for them.  This tax will start out at two thousand dollars per individual, and increase from there.

In many Muslim governed  countries,  people of other religions have to pay additional taxes in order to be permitted to live in the country and practice their own religion.     This is a perfectly good word to apply to the new relationship of pro-life religions to the dominant statist religion, which is coercing religiously run institutions to contribute to the  state program of reproductive control.

I am wondering what will happen when the Muslim physicians, pharmacists and nurses  decide that they have a problem with the coercive policies of the Obama administration,  as have the Muslim health caregivers in Europe.
The reason that Europe is allowing some religious dissent to the abortion culture, is not because of the Christians.  They already gave in.   It’s mostly the Muslims who rolled the abortion coercion back a bit, by refusing to cooperate.  The governments have sufficient fear of the Muslims that they’re afraid to deny them  the freedom to not abort.
Sorry to say, there is a significant social drawback to turning the other cheek.
So far, it appears that the Bishops will eventually   do what they did in Canada…  let the government have its way, with minimal resistance.  Pharmer would like for this prediction to be wrong.
