Obama’s War on Nuns: Administration Asks Supreme Court Not to Exempt Catholic Groups From Contraceptive Mandate

There’s no vacation from being an asshole for Obama. Does he have no decency?

The Obama administration on Friday asked the Supreme Court not to exempt Catholic groups from an ObamaCare requirement to offer contraceptive coverage, after the high court gave them a temporary reprieve earlier this week.

The court filing comes in response to a surprise order — issued shortly before coverage under the law went into effect — by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. The justice issued a stay late Tuesday preventing the government from enforcing the so-called contraceptive mandate against the Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged.

The administration responded just before the Friday morning deadline.

The group of Catholic nuns argues that the contraceptive coverage requirement violates their religious beliefs.

But the Justice Department reiterated its argument that the group has no foundation for their case. The administration says religious nonprofit groups such of this one can certify that they don’t want to provide contraceptive coverage. In that case, it would be up to a third-party administrator to decide whether to provide it.

There’s no low imaginable these insidious maniacs won’t sink to.

One Response to “Obama’s War on Nuns: Administration Asks Supreme Court Not to Exempt Catholic Groups From Contraceptive Mandate”

    Since when is signing a form denying people “Religious Liberty” and a “war on Women” or “Christianity? Oh yeah.. You prefer to confuse the issue.. This is not about forcing “Little Sister of the Poor” to offer birth control as your article is claiming, it is about forcing “Little Sister of the Poor” to sign a form to allow their employees to get birth control elsewhere. In other words, the Little Sister of the Poor and people like you want to DENY birth control to people and force your religious beliefs on everyone else.

    The Nuns are exempted by 2 different methods — their affiliation and their insurance plan, which is administered via a church related insurance plan. Nobody is forcing the Nuns to get this care. What the government IS doing is asking them to file a legal document (as required by law) stating that they’re exempt based on these reasons, to which they refuse, claiming it violates their rights. This is a trumped up media campaign by the Catholic church to raise a stink about Obamacare….and it’s a total non-issue.

    Seriously, You scumbags will stoop to ANY low to demean Obama!

    P.S. 1. George W. Bush: He created a system of true entitlement. The idea that you can wage two wars, implement retarded unworkable policies such as No Child Left Behind, justify one of the two wars with false information, AND still have low taxes. Bush brought us into a deficit and while Obama can be faulted for many things, he cannot be faulted for the deficit any more than Bush, in fact, less than Bush. Bush put us in a $1.3 trillion deficit.

    Plenty of American presidents have infringed of civil rights.
    Obama has no infringed on the constitution.
    Bush is responsible for the deaths of many Americans.
    Previous administrations spied – ergo Obama is not worse than those presidents for spying. I’m not saying spying is justifiable – I’m saying that spying doesn’t make Obama any worse than average.
    I don’t see what Obama has to do with the IRS scandal.
