A new major conflict between labor law, God's law, and hypocrisy.

Another moronic insult to all women from a major supporter of the moron-in-chief, Santorum. Ladies, you have been wasting money over the years buying birth control items. Just place an aspirin between the knees and press firmly. Honestly, this was on national tv this afternoon.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;........................

It is simple enough that any person could understand laws involving religion are unconstitutional. The part of the current issue that has not been discussed is almost any organization receiving federal funding must comply with all federal laws and regulations, especially equal protection labor laws. In a nutshell, one cannot dictate policy to a religious organization but, at the same time, the organization would be prohibited from receiving federal funding of any type.

We had an issue here in Illinois whereby the Catholic adoption agency decided they would not honor a recent state law legalizing same-sex civil unions/marriages. The state Supreme Court ruled they did not have that option while being subsidized by the state. Some of the Dioceses refused to comply and forfeited a reported $20 million but I think a downstate diocese elected to follow the law. Very simple way to solve the problem.

The Catholic church is offering the option to the female students of if they want birth control, go to another university. The church should be told to either comply with the regulations or do not apply for or accept federal funding. Case closed.

There is a major hospital in St. Louis, MO named Barnes Jewish Hospital. Can one imagine the furor if they said anyone who eats pork cannot be admitted? Makes about the same sense as the Catholic position on birth control.
