Seven States Sue King Obama Over Contraception Mandate

Obvious racism at work here.

Seven state attorneys general sued the Obama administration Thursday over its order requiring some religious employers to cover birth control in their employees’ healthcare plans.

In the suit, the states argue that the White House infringed on the religious freedoms protected by the First Amendment.

“This violation of the [First] Amendment is a threat to every American, regardless of religious faith,” Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning said in a news release. “We will not stand idly by while our constitutionally guaranteed liberties are discarded by an administration that has sworn to uphold them.”The attorneys general from Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas also joined the lawsuit.

It seems when the Democrats and Obama manufactured this issue with the help of George Stephanopoulos they didn’t quite anticipate the blowback. What a pity.

Meanwhile, speaking of religion, for some reason it’s newsworthy that Florida Republican Marco Rubio was “active” in the Mormon Church as an eight-year-old.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a rising Republican star frequently mentioned as the party’s likely choice for the vice presidential nominee, was baptized into the Mormon Church as a child and was active in the faith for a number of years during his youth.

Rubio was baptized into the church while his family was living in Las Vegas, around the time that he was 8 years old, according to his Senate office. He was active in the Mormon Church for around 3 years.

    Ah…. I see you’ve got noted genocide denial publisher Andrew Bolt on your blogroll. Didn’t realize it was that sort of place. My apologies.

    Blowback? What blowback? These lawsuits are just for show. Employers who object on religious grounds don’t have to provide birth control coverage. Their insurers will. Don’t like that, with money being fungible and all that? Fine. Just one more step on the road to single-payer…

    Oooh I see your moderation of “objectionable content” is quite broad. Never mind.

    The 2001 court case confirming the same…..

    The largest Catholic University in the US being forced to add contraceptives during Bush’s term, since it was settled law….

    And also their own survey results of Catholic Universities…

    “a leading advocate of faith-based health
    insurance said many colleges are offering benefits that undermine the Church’s teaching because they adopt
    standard “off the shelf” insurance packages that automatically include abortion, artificial contraception and
    sterilization.

    “I would say that most colleges are covering abortion and artificial contraception because they have not been
    able to find a way to economically provide insurance to their people without them,” said Mike O’Dea, founder of
    Christus Medicus Foundation.”

    So they’re being forced to do this by Obama like NBA players are being forced to wear shorts this year.
