Anything that doesn’t represent a pressing Liberal need is considered to be trivial by the Democrat establishment. Nothing means anything outside of their agenda, and they make no bones about it. One of the large issues of the time is the HHS mandate, and a similar motion to force employers to cover not only birth control, but the abortion pill Plan B as well.
Plan B is considered by the Left as birth control—for that matter, so is late-term abortion–but studies have indicated that many times, Plan B actually terminates an already fertilized embryo. In that case, the contraceptive is not in fact birth control, but abortion. Under Obamacare, many Catholic and other religious businesses are being forced to provide their employees with coverage for Plan B—something that violates their faith.
According to Fox:
“The Supreme Court announced that it will hear challenges to the mandate from a crafts chain, Hobby Lobby, and a Mennonite-Owned furniture company, Conestoga Wood. Owners of the companies argue that by being forced to comply with the federal regulation the feds are violating their religious beliefs.”
Juan Williams criticizes the argument, saying:
“They (Hobby Lobby) are willing to offer contraceptive services…They object to the morning after pill. This seems to be Willy Nilly. You’re opening the door to employers saying, well, you know we don’t like this, but we like that.”
What Juan doesn’t seem to understand is that contraception and Plan B are altogether different animals. This is step one in the larger Leftist agenda of making abortion common, accepted, and even praised. By blurring the distinction between contraception and Plan B, Liberals begin to erase what being human really means. They begin to blur the line that defines the concept of life.
Moreover, this is an obvious violation of religious freedom. That is just another step in the Leftist agenda against Christianity. Once one religious freedom is erased, what’s stopping further damage? If religious organizations are forced to violate their faith even once, or face consequences from the government, is that not oppression? Is that not a restriction of freedom?
Once the definition of life is blurred even more than it already has been, and once Christians are forced to obey either the government or their faith, we’ve lost the moniker of a free society. We have lost our republic.
The following are comments already made about this article:
Juan Williams’ point of view has to be understood. He sees everything through The Tyrant’s sphincter. He’s a marxist sycophant.
Please people, read HOSANNA-TABOR EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH AND SCHOOL v. EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY COMMISSION ET AL… U.S. Supreme Court case, 2010, 9 to zero in favor of religious rights for all of us. While this case was on a specific issue, the other opinions voiced in the decision expanded these religious rights far more than you might believe. This is a key win for religious beliefs and practices.
DO NOT compromise your faith at any cost because the ones that are asking you to are not believes and will suffer the results of their foolish failure to stand with faith and God! NO! they can go to hell but I am sticking to the foundation of faith and the Bible! Just ignore all that Obama says and does and when someone asks you why tell them you do to agree and he is against the freedom of America. If they hear that enough it will finally get back to O and he will might (?) finally get the message we do not want to trash our nation!
24 million illegal s ignore our laws, so can the whole country!
Christians need to stand strong against this mandate being enforced because we know there is only one correct answer to when life begins.
Make muslims participate in o-care………wont happen….they are too delicate….
Thats right! All or none! Let the geniuses figure something else out. What Obama is saying now is Muslims have religious rights, Christians have none. Kind of lets you know what side hes on, doesn’t it. Not only him but his staff and Congress. We Americans are a sad lot indeed!
It really does not matter what Juan Williams believes, what matters is what the business owners believe. They have the right to believe that some things are against their religion whether or not you, I or Juan Williams thinks it is logical or otherwise. That’s what the First Amendment is all about.
We lost the republic when we voted the muslim illegal alien in without vetting him. Thank the cretins in the democrat party and the traitors in the media.
This is a very good point to make. Many liberal arguments use obfuscation and lump things together when they should not be. Either the statement by the left is ignorant, hasn’t thought it out, or it’s an intentional untrue statement.
What’s described in this article is occurring because of the religious freedom, outside the bounds of Christianity and the Bible, provided by the framers via Amendment 1. It is inarguable that had the framers not failed to establish government and society upon Yahweh’s immutable morality and everlasting righteousness as reflected in His perfect law (Psalm 19:7-11), none of this would be occurring. Think about it: Obama wouldn’t even be President today, nor would anyone today in Congress be there to accomplish their dastardly deeds.
“…3. Every problem America faces today can be traced back to the fact that the framers failed to expressly establish a government upon Yahweh’s immutable morality as codified in His commandments, statutes, and judgments. (Would infanticide and sodomy be tolerated, let alone financed by the government, if Yahweh’s perfect law and altogether righteous judgments were the law of the land? Would Islam be a looming threat to our peace and security if the First Amendment had been replaced with the First Commandment? Would Americans be in nearly as much debt if usury had been outlawed as a form of theft? Would crime be as rampant if “cruel and unusual punishment” had not been outlawed and criminals were instead punished with Yahweh’s altogether righteous judgments? Would we be on the fiscal cliff if we were taxed with a flat increase tax rather than a graduated income tax?)….”

How about that hope and change? Well I hope it changes….back to what the framers decided in 1776 !!!
Since when did Juan Williams understand anything?
“What Juan doesn’t seem to understand is that contraception and Plan B are altogether different animals.” Juan DOES FULLY understand and that is the evil of his statement and position. Jesus will judge EVERY IDLE WORD. Did I just judge him? No, he has judged himself. The fact is, I didn’t make him state that lie and I didn’t request or coerce him into making that lie. He did it on his own. God will judge us both. Only the blood of Jesus Christ makes a way out of punishment for BOTH of us.
I no longer listen to anything Juan Williams has to say. When he or Obama come on T.V. I change channels. That goes for Biden, Holder, Pelosi also. And the list goes on and on.
JAUAN WILLIAM is a joke ITS LIKE LOOKING AT OVERMIT ON FOX IT is a joke to listen to this person he is an obsloute idioute like the wel fare reciepts trying to bring America to her knee s let see if we can change this false gov lets take it down AS A mericans born in the USA
