How Gracious: White House Stormtroopers Will “Modify” Birth Control Dictate

Posted by on Feb 10, 2012 at 8:19 am

This is really strange. The media has been telling us how popular this decree from King Obama is and that nobody cares. So, um, why are these thugs suddenly backing off a bit?

The White House will announce an effort to accommodate religious groups who have objected to a rule requiring religious organizations like charities and hospitals to include contraception in their healthcare plans, according to ABC News.

The White House has faced heavy criticism from the Catholic Church and other religious organizations, Republicans, and even some Democrats over the issue, and Vice President Biden has suggested a compromise could be worked out.

According to ABC News, the accommodation will retain the rule’s purpose of providing birth control for women employees but would allow the employees to get the coverage from an insurance provider.

ABC said it is possible the announcement will come from Obama himself, who avoided questions on Thursday about the controversy.

And avoided the questions in cowardly fashion. He didn’t have the guts to defend this outrage. So now they’ll come up with “compromise” to bamboozle the suckers for now, then ram it down the throat of the church post-election.

    They ALREADY have the ability to get their precious abortions from an insurance provider. If they choose (there’s that word) to pay for it. Or they can go into the nearest Margaret Sanger fan clubhouse (PP) and get stuff. And there’s federal laws preventing any protests. Try ‘glitterbombing’ a clinci and see how that goes. The Dear Leader is damanding that the Catholic Church be an enabler of it. So much for choice.

    So much for choice, indeed.

    Obama is backing off (or at least creating the perception that he is backing off) because he has to. Politically speaking, he committed an error thinking that the Catholic Church (and other religious organizations) would simply accept the mandate. His advisors also calculated, I think, that they could afford to lose a % of Catholic voters in exchange for shoring up the left-wing base. It is clear that they miscalculated and succeeded in uniting both liberal and conservative Catholics against him (from E.J. Dionne and the editors of the National Catholic Reporter all the way to Archbishop Dolan and other leaders). Plus, he handed the Republicans a wedge-issue to work with in the coming months. He now has to try and quell the fallout as best he can, but in my view the mask slipped. If it was up to him, religious institutions would have to do whatever the government tells them (all in the name of the “greater good” of course) even if it flies in the face of their principles and what they believe. It is nothing less than an asssault on the freedom of religion in this country and EVERYONE should be conerned about it, not just Catholics.

    My husband is diabetic and his doctor has explicitly told me not to buy him a chocolate cake for his birthday. I give my son $20 to buy the chocolate birthday cake, deliver it and sing Happy Birthday. My conscience is clear, I did not buy my husband a chocolate birthday cake.

    So Dot, if I may inquire…

    With that analogy, are you signaling support for, or opposition to, this compromise?
