This whole issue is much much bigger than the media or the Democrats want you to believe. The ramifications for this ruling are very far reaching. The new decision on this issue is just another way of saying the same thing-instead of employers being responsible for this now the insurance companies are. The ruling is still the same that birth control should be provided. At no other time in history has any administration been so brave to undermine the primacy of faith in America.
The damage of this is not limited to the Catholic church. Now that the government can tell religious institutions that they must violate their doctrine that has stood the test of time, how long will it be before they come back to the churches and attempt to regulate what is taught and spoken from the pulpit?
After this, what is to say that the State will not tax the churches now, particularly if the churches maintain positions that are contrary to the ruling regime? Many churches would simply go out of business all because we were not attentive to the big picture.
Tim Goeglin had it right in The Man in the Middle when he said we need to focus on the nuclear family in America. It is naive to think that this contraception thing is limited to just contraception. We need to fight for individual liberty, the nuclear family, our faith, and try to strengthen communities.
It is unbelievable to me that this is happening in the United States. I don't usually blog about politics. This is important enough for me to blog about. Please inform everyone you know. Do not think this is just one issue. When you vote in November think about this issue and your faith whether you are Catholic or not. This one issue is enough for me to make a decision on who and who not to vote for. No other issue is as important as life. It is our right to have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
