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.
