We have some indication that Chick-Fil-A hasn’t been worrying about their employee’s private sex lives in the above article. But worklife is different now. Gays working for the company have been caught in the middle of the leftie war against their company, which was touched off by CEO Dan Cathy’s personal belief about gay marriage.
Apparently the homosexual employees are either getting blamed for hating gays, because of the gay marriage issue, or being thanked for opposition to it.
Some of what they hear is off point and crazy: “I hope you choke on your chicken” and either support or opposition because “your company hates gays”.
The situation of homosexual employees at Chick-fil-A brings home the point that everyone’s lives would be easier, including the those of gays, if the lefties would quit their war on freedom of religion. We notice that the lefties prefer to attack Christians, for opposing gay marriage, while at the same time supporting the sects of Muslims who chop the heads off of homosexuals.
Another case in point: In the U.S. HIV remains largely an affliction of men who have sex with men. Leftie heroes,Obama and Kathleen Sebelius, are working to close down the Catholic Health Care Institutions in the U.S. by insisting that they participate in birth control, sterilizations and abortion. By this means they will be shutting off a large proportion of care for patients with HIV. It’s estimated that world wide, 25% of health programs for HIV patients are provided by the Catholic Church. which has been at the forefront of that mission from the beginning.
Pass this one onto your friends.
Above is a touch stone, a headline from International Business Times, making a false claim about Arizona legislation which would make employer coverage of employees’ birth control optional.
This AZ house bill 2625 allows employers to avoid covering recreational use of hormones for birth control based on their religious beliefs. Women can still get coverage for medical need for indications other than birth control. This bill does not give permission to employers to fire employees for use of birth control pills. If the woman is obtaining her own pills, it would be a violation of HIPAA regs for the employer to have the info, and a violation of a bunch of other laws for the employer to fire for that reason. Nice try. The IB Times needs to surrender to the fact that the “war on women” ploy is not working. Birth control pills are just too cheap to merit such a whine-fest. Go back to that other loser “abortion”.
The headline is an example of how completely unreliable the mainstream press is, as well as the ACLU and Huffington Post.
There are many heated debates over whether employers and insurance companies should pay for birth control pills when used to prevent or stop reproduction.
One of the commenting individuals expressed offense that Pharmer used the term recreational drug to describe birth control drugs, and recreational sex to describe the kind people have when they don’t want to make babies. Specifically the idea was introduced that sex, with the desire to avoid reproduction, is NOT recreational. Pharmer thinks that when sex stops being fun, it is time to quit.
Sex becomes a job or a human right when people want others to pay for it!!! It rises to the level of a religious freedom issue. If a person has a belief that their sex is NOT fun, and it is a ritual activity that has become a JOB, then others should respect it as a human right under the first amendment and pay for it, even if that practice violates their own religion. It’s Sandra Fluke all over again, and despite this admission from the Left that sex is not fun anymore, Rush Limbaugh got in trouble for saying that it was a Job for Sandra.
Eureka! The pattern is elucidated: Recreation stops being recreation, or becomes an offensive term when people start wanting to be PAID for what should be considered FUN!! They turn it into a job, a ritual, or a human right!
It’s ‘welfare’ gone WILD!!!
Obama speaks of freedom of worship, and no longer freedom of religion. What’s the difference? You can hide in your church and do your rituals in Obamaville, but you can’t exercise the tenets of your faith in the public square. The government will not let you behave as your religion directs.
This difference is what Santorum was highlighting when he spoke of Kennedy’s speech. Kennedy was assuring the potential opposition that he would NOT BEHAVE AS HIS RELIGION DIRECTED. In retrospect, we know that is the case, from his governmental dealings to his use and prostitution of his 19 year old intern mistress. There remain practicing Catholics who find the Kennedy family, Pelosi, and Biden to be an embarrassment.
Obama has clearly indicated that Christians are consigned to the statist version of dhimmitude. He is willing to accept millions of deaths resulting from dissolution of a huge portion of our health care institutions in order to complete his downsizing of America.
