BREAKING! Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Hobby Lobby! Landmark Victory For Religious Freedom!

June 30, 2014 at 9:26 am

Hallelujah! Thank the Lord. My prayers have been answered.

Details to follow.

UPDATE: As promised:

WASHINGTON (AP) — WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court ruled Monday that some corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women.

The justices’ 5-4 decision is the first time that the high court has ruled that profit-seeking businesses can hold religious views under federal law. And it means the Obama administration must search for a different way of providing free contraception to women who are covered under objecting companies’ health insurance plans.

Contraception is among a range of preventive services that must be provided at no extra charge under the health care law that President Barack Obama signed in 2010 and the Supreme Court upheld two years later.

……
Justice Samuel Alito wrote the majority opinion. The court’s four liberal justices dissented.

The court stressed that its ruling applies only to corporations, like the Hobby Lobby chain of arts-and-craft stores, that are under the control of just a few people in which there is no essential difference between the business and its owners.

Alito also said the decision is limited to contraceptives under the health care law. “Our decision should not be understood to hold that an insurance-coverage mandate must necessarily fall if it conflicts with an employer’s religious beliefs,” Alito said.
……
The contraceptives at issue before the court were the emergency contraceptives Plan B and ella [abortifacients --VH], and two IUDs.

Nearly 50 businesses have sued over covering contraceptives. Some, like those involved in the Supreme Court case, are willing to cover most methods of contraception, as long as they can exclude drugs or devices that the government says may work after an egg has been fertilized. Other companies object to paying for any form of birth control.

There are separate lawsuits challenging the contraception provision from religiously affiliated hospitals, colleges and charities.

Ahem:


Cheers!


The case was not about birth control.

Unknown Fem-Nazi Pro-Abort Comic Laura Levites “I Want To Rip Out Uterus Of Pro Life C*nt Cathy McMorris Rodgers And Eat It”

January 31, 2014 at 4:25 pm

Life News:

Feminist comedian Laura Levites posted a tweet in response to Rogers’ touching pro-life State of the Union response, saying, “I want to rip out the uterus of that pro life C— Cathy McMorris Rodgers and eat it, so I can see the surprised look on her frigid face.”….

Not only is twisted sister Laura Levites a depraved, demented waste of human flesh with a cannibalistic fem-nazi fetish for feasting on uteri, she is also a candy-ass coward.
As you can see Laura dishes it out with fervent gusto…

Election Integrity Activists: Obamacare ‘Biggest Voter Registration Fraud Scheme in History’

“The Exorcist” Author William Peter Blatty: Kathleen @Sebelius Endorses “Demonic” Acts

October 31, 2013 at 8:49 am

The morally bankrupt Godless secular left and demonic acts.
WaPo:

Mere steps away from lunch is evidence of the fallen, in his eyes: his beloved alma mater, which he believes has drifted perilously into secularism. This month, Blatty submitted to the Vatican a petition with thousands of signatures and a 120-page institutional audit that calls for the removal of Georgetown’s Catholic and Jesuit designations if it does not comply with every little rule in “Ex Corde Ecclesiae,” John Paul II’s constitution for affiliated colleges. The university, for its part, says the “Catholic and Jesuit identity on campus has never been stronger.”

Bill, what are you doing? people have asked him.

Bill, times change. Let it go.

Bill, why are you punishing the school you love, the school whose scholarship money rescued you from a childhood of restless poverty in New York, the school that made possible your life, that cemented your faith?

“If you truly love someone that you think needs to be in rehab, you’ll do everything you possibly can to get them into rehab,” Blatty says. The last straw, he says, was Georgetown’s invitation of Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, to be a commencement speaker in May of last year. Sebelius has a record of supporting abortion rights, and abortion is the issue that really sets Blatty’s nerves on fire.

He describes, his voice trembling, a particular abortion procedure in graphic detail.

He pauses. His voice is nearly a whisper.

“That’s demonic.”

A synonym of “demonic” is evil, and anyone with a shred of human decency should by all rights classify the premeditated murder of new born babies as –EVIL.

Which brings me to Kathleen Sebelius’ closerthanthis ties to the late Kansas abortion mill operator George “The Baby Killer” Tiller. Who is in all likelihood roasting in hell for his evil barbaric deeds.

George Tiller’s ill gotten ‘blood money’ which he pocketed from his performing up to the last minute (ILLEGAL) late-term abortions AND executing newborn babies (MURDER), helped to finance Kathleen Sebelius’ political rise from Governor of Kansas to the position she currently holds as Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services. Figuratively speaking, Sebelius’  political career road was paved with the dead bodies of innocent babies. For which “my body, my choice” did not apply.

Photos Link Sebelius To “Tiller the Killer”

Photographs obtained by Operation Rescue show that Sebelius hosted a lavish secret party for Tiller and his entire abortion clinic staff at the official governor’s mansion, Cedar Crest, in April, 2007. The source of the photos, who actually attended the party, told Operation Rescue that it was an “invitation only” party to honor Tiller and his staff for their abortion work.

Operation Rescue made an open records request for documents related to the party, including funding. After much stonewalling, the request was answered, but the party was listed under the name of a PAC, not under Tiller’s name or his abortion clinic, Women’s Health Care Services.

Sebelius told the press that the party was the prize at an auction event that benefitted the PAC, and that the state was reimbursed for the expense. However, records show the state initially paid for the party, and was only reimbursed by the PAC – conveniently – on the very day that the open records request was finally answered a year and a half after the event, giving the strong appearance of impropriety.

Based on the eye-witness source and the open records evidence, which indicates the “auction prize” story was cooked, Sebelius’ account of the Tiller party just does not add up and should not be believed for one minute. (Read in depth analysis -NEWLY UPDATED!)

Even the Wichita Eagle criticized Sebelius for her lack of judgment in hosting the Tiller soiree.

Follow The Money

Documents on file with the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission that show that Tiller, his abortion mill Women’s Health Care Services, and his political action committee, ProKanDo, donated tens of thousands of dollars to Sebelius campaigns over the years.

Those campaign contributions include, but are not limited to the following:

09-25-2001 JEANNE TILLER $ 2,000
09-25-2000 WOMENS HEALTH CARE SERVICES $2,000
09-25-2000 GEORGE TILLER $2,000
9-25-2000 GEORGE TILLER MD $2,000
09-10-1998 GEORGE TILLER $ 200
12-14-1998 JEANNE TILLER $ 250
06-18-1998 PRO CHOICE ACTION LEAGUE $1,000
05-01-1997 GEORGE TILLER $ 500
11-21-1994 GEORGE R TILLER $ 500
11-14-1994 GEORGE R TILLER PA $2,000
09-02-1994 GEORGE R TILLER $2,000
06-10-1994 GEORGE R TILLER $ 500
04-15-1994 GEORGE R TILLER $ 500

In Addition, Tiller has contributed generously to Sebelius’ PAC, the Bluestem Fund:

09-01-2000 GEORGE R. TILLER MD $5,000
09-07-2000 GEORGE R. TILLER MD PA $5,000
12-28-2001 WOMENS HEALTH CARE SERVICES $8,000
03-18-2002 WOMENS HEALTH CARE SERVICES $5,000

There is MUCH MORE where that came from. Read the in depth report in it’s entirety here.

Tax-Payer Funded Abortion On Demand For Congress & Staff Courtesy Of #Obamacare

Thanks to Obamacare, no being punished with a baby for Congress & Congressional staff .

Somewhere Sandra Fluke is having an obamacaregasam…

(Washington Times) –The Office of Personnel Management ruled Monday that members of Congress and their staffs will be able to buy health care plans that pay for abortions, even though the premiums are funded largely by taxpayer money — a move that conservatives say breaks federal law on abortion funding.

Under the terms of Obamacare, lawmakers and their aides are required to ditch their government-sponsored plans and buy insurance on state-based health care exchanges, though unlike most people on the exchanges, the staffers and members will have most of the costs of their premiums paid by their employer — in this case, taxpayers.

Federal law generally prevents taxpayer money from being used to pay for abortions, but OPM said the health care plans offered through the exchange were private. The agency also said it will make sure the money is segregated so that the portion that pays for abortions comes out of the employees’ own contributions, which amounts to about a quarter of the premiums.“While plans with such coverage may be offered on an Exchange, OPM can and will take appropriate administrative steps to ensure that the cost of any such coverage purchased by a member of Congress or a congressional staffer from a designated [exchange] is accounted for and paid by the individual rather than from the government contribution, consistent with the general prohibition on federal funds being used for this purpose,” OPM said in its ruling.

I’m having a hard time believing that the ‘keep ‘em separated’ plan will be strictly adhered to.

Rep. Christopher H. Smith, New Jersey Republican, said OPM is violating a law he wrote in 1983 that prohibits OPM from paying any expenses to administer plans that cover abortion, except in cases of rape or incest or when the mother’s life is in danger.

“You can’t break the law, Mr. President, and just issue a final rule as if somehow you’re comporting with the law,” Mr. Smith told The Washington Times. “We don’t want to subsidize abortion on demand, and the public is absolutely with us.”

Democrats applauded the ruling, saying it ensures equal access to abortions.

“This decision honors the spirit of the Affordable Care Act, which is significantly improving health care for women,” Reps. Rosa L. DeLauro of Connecticut and Louise McIntosh Slaughter of New York said in a joint statement. “All women, no matter where they work, deserve health care coverage that can meet their individual health care needs.”

Evil incarnate. No doubt about it.

Verified: CNN Express’ Josh Rubin reported on the satan chant via Twitter:

Texas blogger Adam Cahnman of Cahnman’s Musing was on then scene and captured the evil howling of the wicked on video:

It’s been a very interesting day at the Texas State Capitol.  Cahnman’s Musings hasn’t been following the hearing. Instead, we’ve been participating in the surrounding events. LetTexasSpeak has been doing a live broadcast from the rotunda where women have been sharing their abortion related testimonies. The pro-abortion crowd has responded with repeated chants of “hail Satan”.  It’s taken us all day to get a video recording, but here it is:

Spawns of Satan in action.

Update: The agents of evil can be heard chanting “hail satan” very clear in this new video again via Cahnman’s Musings.

Ashley got up to speak. As you can tell, her testimony is VERY powerful. The crowd was transfixed, including the pro-abortion people.

As Ashley spoke, a few of the pro-abortion people started saying ‘hail Satan’ at random. The first time we heard it was at 3:35 of this second video. By 5:15, they’re chanting it in unison, VERY creepily:

“A bit of advice that would be quite interesting to every church in America.”

IRS religious persecution of a Christian organization caught on tape.

(ADF Media Relations) –In March 2012, Ania Joseph received a call from IRS Exempt Organization Specialist Sherry Wan, who told her that Pro-Life Revolution cannot “force” its religion or beliefs on anyone else. Wan inaccurately told Joseph that the organization must remain neutral on positions such as abortion in order to qualify for a tax exemption. The IRS has approved applications for tax exemption for pro-abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood and Life and Liberty for Women.

Agent (:44 – 1:17) – Yeah, you have the religious freedom; the freedom of speech. And other people also have the civil rights; human rights. You cannot, you know, use your religious belief to tell other people you don’t have a belief, so I don’t believe you need the right to do this, start confrontation, protesting, uh, prot, uh, protest. [unintelligible] You don’t apply for tax exemption.

Crosstalk (1:17 – 1:18)

Agent (1:18 – 1:38) – Nobody will go after you as long as you don’t violate the law. But when you come to apply for tax exemption, you have to keep your action to, you know, exactly what is
educational or religious, you know you [unintelligible].

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) press release:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

IRS caught on tape: Keep faith to yourself

Non-profit group waited for tax-exempt approval for almost 2-1/2 years
Monday, June 10, 2013

Attorney sound bites:  Erik Stanley #1  |  Erik Stanley #2

WASHINGTON — Alliance Defending Freedom made public Monday audio of a phone conversation that the Internal Revenue Service placed to a non-profit organization that provides support to women in abusive pregnancy situations. In the recorded phone conversation, an IRS agent lectures the president of the organization about forcing its religion and beliefs on others and inaccurately explains that the group must remain neutral on issues such as abortion.

Alliance Defending Freedom represents the group, which did not receive its tax-exempt status until last week, nearly two and a half years after applying for it.

“The IRS is a tax collector; it shouldn’t be allowed to be the speech and belief police,” said Senior Legal Counsel Erik Stanley. “The current scandal isn’t new but has merely exposed the abuse of power that characterizes this agency and threatens our fundamental freedoms.”

The IRS grants tax exemptions to religious, educational, and/or charitable organizations. In January 2011, Pro-Life Revolution, which operates from Texas under all three purposes, filed an application for tax-exempt status with the IRS.

Four months later, the IRS sent a letter requesting “more information” and an explanation of how the organization’s activities are educational or charitable even though IRS rules specify that an organization need only operate for “one or more” of the three exempt purposes. President of Pro-Life Revolution Ania Joseph nonetheless replied and answered the IRS’s questions.

In March 2012, Joseph received a call from IRS Exempt Organization Specialist Sherry Wan, who told her that, in order to obtain a tax exemption, “You cannot force your religion or force your beliefs on somebody else…. You have to know your boundaries. You have to know your limits. You have to respect other people’s beliefs.” The IRS has approved applications for tax exemption for pro-abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood and Life and Liberty for Women.

In February of this year, the IRS requested additional information in another letter and attempted to apply a standard for tax exemption to Pro-Life Revolution that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit held to be unconstitutional in 1980. Alliance Defending Freedom pointed this out in a letter responding to the IRS, which finally granted tax-exempt status to the organization in a letter received Thursday.

“The power to tax is the power to destroy,” added Stanley. “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. We cannot allow the IRS to ruthlessly dictate against legitimate non-profits simply because it does not approve of the organization’s mission. It must be held accountable.”

@NFL Super Bowl Champ Skips White House Visit Over Obama’s “God Bless Planned Parenthood” Statement

June 7, 2013 at 7:23 am

Matt Birk - August 5, 2009

Got to love a man who publicly stands up for his beliefs to such a degree.

(Washington Examiner) Retired Baltimore Ravens center Matt Birk, who won a Super Bowl with the team last year, skipped the team’s visit to the White House due to President Obama’s support for Planned Parenthood.

“I have great respect for the office of the presidency but about five or six weeks ago, our president made a comment in a speech and he said, ‘God bless Planned Parenthood,’” Birk, a former Minnesota Viking, told a local Minnesota sports blog. “I’m very confused by [Obama's] statement,” he explained. “For God to bless a place where they’re ending 330,000 lives a year? I just chose not to attend.”

Kirk said he’s a pro-life Roman Catholic. “Planned Parenthood performs about 330,000 abortions a year,” he said. “I couldn’t endorse that in any way.”
