Obama as Solomon; Slicing Babies into Pieces

Timothy Birdnow

Ah Barack Obama; the Great compromiser! Seems our friend Barry has charted a middle course between the freedom of conscience that Cathoolics and other religious organizations are so unreasonably demanding and the rights of women to copulate with as many men as they wish and not worry about an unsightly abdominal bulge. Why, the man is truly a Solomon, dividing the baby in two (literally, in this case) to satisfy all parties (on his side, at any rate.)

Yesterday our wise leader, under fire from The Catholic League, from Catholic Bishops, and others (what got his attention was the Muslim Imams who complained) elucidated his grand compromise; he won't force religious organizations to pay directly out of pocket for abortion and contraception, but instead will make the insurance companies do it!

Of course, religious organizations running hospitals and other not-for-profit services would have had to change insurance policies anyway; they weren't going to set up a fund to buy prophylactics. And Obama fails to mention that the insurance rates will rise as a result, making both the religious organizations and the recipients pay up front.

According to Lifenews:

" The revised Obama mandate will make religious groups contract with insurers to offer birth control and the potentially abortion-causing drugs to women at no cost. The revised mandate will have religious employers refer women to their insurance company for coverage that still violates their moral and religious beliefs. Under this plan, every insurance company will be obligated to provide coverage at no cost.

Essentially, religious groups will still be mandated to offer plans that cover both birth control and the ella abortion drug

According to Obama administration officials on a conference call this morning, a woman’s insurance company “will be required to reach out directly and offer her contraceptive care free of charge. The religious institutions will not have to pay for it.”

The birth control and abortion-causing drugs will simply be “part of the bundle of services that all insurance companies are required to offer,” White House officials said."

End excerpt.

THIS is what passes for compromise with the BHO.

This is the act of a tyrant; government does not simply command and expect the people to obey. Obama is showing more than a little jackboot from under his skirt.

And demanding insurance to establish a universal contraceptive/abortion plan violates the rights of the insurance people. How many Christians are selling insurance, or working as adjusters, or in executive positions and must now violate their consciences thanks to Che Obama's order? No matter how the White House tries to spin this, it still comes down to a powergrab of monumental proportions as the President is simply commanding private citizens to do what he tells them. He has simply used an accounting trick to "shift" the blame from the employers (the churches) to the insurance companies. He is still demanding they violate the basic rights to freedom of religion guaranteed in the First Amendment. I suppose he figures that since CONGRESS is not making the law...

This is but reason 813 to impeach this guy. Remember that Solomon's policies divided and eventually destroyed the Israelite nation; ten of the twelve tribes seceeded from Judah and Benjamin on Solomon's death. Do we really want to wait that long, and allow that much damage? The Israelites didn't have a legal impeachment remedy at their disposal. We do.

It's time we tell this guy he won't be hacking any more babies into sections.
