Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who oversees the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, has issued a stay on the birth control mandate for religious groups. The request, made by an order of Catholic nuns in Colorado, was granted just hours before the new mandate went to effect on January 1. It comes as the Supreme Court takes up a legal challenge to the mandate brought by the for-profit company Hobby Lobby, which says the mandate violates its religious freedom.
I’m not linking, but the comments at The Daily Bleat are ridiculous.
These choads shouted “separation of church and state!!!!!!” for decades. Now those chickens come home to roost and they don’t like it. They resort to despicable vile nonsense, like this-
Rob654: If somehow those little boys could get pregnant, you can bet the Catholic church would not only have no problem with birth control they would suddenly say that God commanded little boys to take birth control.
Fred C. Dobbs_Jr: they make sure th little girls cant get preggo by sodomising them.
And then there’s these rock solid brains –
Indestruction: I am getting pretty sick of the misuse of the term religious freedom. letting your employees use, or supplying your employees with birth control does not infringe on your religious freedom at all!
Forcing you to pay for and supply your employees with something your faith considers a sin is not at all an imposition. Okay then.
And then there’s this enigmatic rebuttal. (You try and unravel if this is a rebuttal or not.)
AiredaleLady: Just say no! That is something I was taught as a child: if I didn’t like something or disagreed with something, I was told to just say no.
I think that’s what Hobby Lobby did.
