      • These would be the same strict Constitutionalists who don’t believe the 14th Amendment applies to gays, right?
        Everyone’s in love with the Constitution until they find something in it they don’t like; then they turn into mind-readers. “Oh, the Founding Fathers didn’t mean it like that! They’d never approve of such a thing! They were all religious conservatives!”

  1. “This isn’t something you need to worry your pretty little heads about. We’ll let you know what we decide. Oh, and while you’re up, could you go into the kitchen and fix us some snacks? This session is going to take a while.”

  2. If you’re guna think that it’s right to let a woman suffer rather than take the pill, and it’s wrong to terminate a cluster of cells rather than allow the mother to potentially die from complications, then my question has to be: why stop there?

    If you’re a big powerful panel, why not also decide that the moon is made of lemonade and the Devil invented the tugboat? Let’s have some fun with all this batshit crazy…

        • I chuckled my way about 2 thirds through this before I realised it wasn’t parody…

          The joke’s on me now.

          ‘NO ONE ANYWHERE AT ANY TIME IS TRYING TO BAN CONTRACEPTION’… except for, like, The Pope… he is. He loves banning good ideas…

        • notsofast, your name should really be “not that quick, or maybe “slow on the uptake,” because it seems you’re not getting it.

          Nobody said the meeting was to ban contraception. And since that seems to be the root of your little rant that’s laced with all sorts of delightful little misspellings and such, the rest of what you had to say is essentially void.

          And, although I tend to swing a bit more to the right, I will say this. If you’re an American, Obama is not just our President, he’s your President too. And you can disagree with him and his policies all day long (I’m not a big fan, myself), but he IS our leader, and as such, he deserves a certain measure of respect. Grudging or not, he deserves that respect, even if it’s just as a human being. If nothing else, you should acknowledge him for what he is.

          You forgot to add “to hate everyone who is different and to obey their husbands unquestioningly.” to the end. Fixed that for ya.

    • You’re right. This is the hearing about allowing any employer to deny their employees health care coverage if they have a moral objection to it. Women are obviously not qualified to testify about the intersection of religious freedom and health care.

      God help you if this passes and you ever need surgery while working for a Jehovah’s Witness. You won’t be allowed any blood transfusions on moral ground. And if you work for a Christian who practices the Quiverful lifestyle, you won’t be allowed any procedure that could impede the birth of many many children in your life. But that’s ok. At least your wealthy religious employer who can pay out of pocket for any procedure he ever needs will be covered for any medical emergencies.

    • Our fire, thou art so burny
      Flaming be thy name
      Thy burning come
      Crispy when done
      Your amp doth go to eleven

      And give us this day our daily scalding
      And forgive us our pyromania
      As we forgive those who light our shit on fire

    • Why don’t you click reply if you’re replyin to me, save yourself a bunch of keystrokes? Like, 5 for my name alone.

      The Catholics are not crazy, their ruling hierarchy is. And so are you, from the sounds of it.

      Look, I’m not that well-versed in your wasteful and corporate-bloated health system, but from what I understand Obama is bending over backwards to stretch the rules to allow Catholic orgs. to not have to compromise their *ahem* moral standpoint, whilst still getting potentially life-saving treatment for female employees via insurance companies.

      But I guess actually what he’s doing is coming up with an evil plot to ROB AMERICA OF ITS FREEDOM!!1!!11!

        • White noise.

          I was referring to the therapeutic use of the contraceptive pill, but don’t let that get in the way of a good rant!

          Incidentally, your American system of ‘liberals’ and ‘conservatives’ bears no relevance to me whatsoever.

          ‘Liberals’ in your country would largely be considered centrists or slightly right in mine. Your ‘Conservatives’ would be in a village hall ranting in front of a few racists and miscellaneous crazies here…

        • You want an example of a life-saving abortion denied by the Catholic church?

          My partner’s brother’s ex-wife was pregnant with a child who’s skull didn’t form. NO SKULL. The child, though able to live inside the womb, was NEVER GOING TO BE VIABLE THROUGH BIRTH BECAUSE IT HAD NOTHING TO PROTECT IT’S BRAIN, AND WOULD HAVE DIED IMMEDIATELY UPON LEAVING THE WOMB.

          They both WANTED this baby. Badly. BUT IT WOULDN’T HAVE LIVED. No matter how much they prayed, wished, or hoped, YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT A SKULL BECAUSE EVERYTHING WILL COLLAPSE UPON ITSELF.

          Rather than go through an entire pregnancy and suffer the crushing sadness and depression of delivering her child that she wanted so much to death, she had to abort the fetus.

          This woman worked for a Catholic hospital. The Catholic hospital she worked for REFUSED to do the abortion. She had to go somewhere else and pay out of pocket to terminate a doomed pregnancy.

          The HORROR of the entire situation was made worse by her employers, and it completely destroyed that marriage.

          So FUCK YOU and your bullshit statistics.

          Also, you can talk about the decisions someone makes after they were raped when you’ve been raped yourself.

          This coming from someone who HAS been raped and someone who HAD thought she was pregnant after that.

          YOU are ignorant and I wish you could experience for just ONE SECOND the shit I went through. Just one. Then you could talk. Until then, keep your religion out of my cunt.

    • Incorrect. Obama is trying to force all businesses to cover preventative health care for all of their employees. Barring that, he’s allowing religious organizations to opt out of covering objectionable services at the cost of the insurers. If you’re a good enough [insert faith here] to know you should use [insert procedure/health service here], then you’re responsible enough on your own not to use it. No one is forcing [insert faith here] to use [insert procedure health service here] against their will. However, people are trying to stop everyone from having access to certain health services/procedures/preventative medications because their religion tells them it’s wrong.

      Did you know religious groups run non-religious companies? They’re the ones who are being given many options to comply with providing health care to their employees. Not churches. Priests aren’t going to be forced to hand out condoms with the Eucharist at Sunday service.

        • No, it’s not. It’s what the language of that bill will allow. Just because FoxNews tells you it’s just about contraception doesn’t mean that’s what the legal language actually says.

        • Sweety, I’m cherry picking my history lesson out of actual history books, which I read for fun. If you actually picked one up you would know I’m right, and that the Catholic Church for many, many centuries has been more of a political body than a religious order.

          By the way, darlin’:

          “Let the women learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (I Timothy 2:11-14)

    • Hey, any time the Church wants to stop receiving MY taxpayer dollars will be fine with me. In the mean time, any health insurance program that wants to pick and choose what they will cover and what they won’t should be subject to some gorram standards.

      • No, you seem content to sit here and engage us with no ammo. That’s all fine and well. I, for one, am a moderate with conservative leanings. But…I’m also a preacher’s daughter, raised in the Church. I’ve debated theology with the best of them. I can see both sides of almost every argument, including this one.

        But –
        Do not bring my God into your petty little bullshit butthurt unless you’re ready to throw the fuck down.

  8. I’m bisexual, and if the church doesn’t let me get my anti-baby pills, I might get pregnant and raise gay babies. I’m pretty sure no one wants that, right?
