Obama Bows to Pressure, but His Religious 'Accommodation' Even Worse

By Bobby Eberle

Wow! Talk about making matters even worse. On Friday, reacting to national outrage over his Obamacare mandate which would force religious employers (such as hospitals and universities) to pay for services that are in direct opposition to the religious faith of the institution, Obama said... Hey! You guys don't have to pay for it. I'll force the insurance companies to cover it... at no cost to anyone. This is insane on so many levels...

Can someone... anyone... tell me how Obama fixed anything on Friday? He was forcing Catholic institutions to pay for services that conflict with the Catholic faith. Did he really think this was about the money? That Catholic leaders are upset that they had to shell out some bucks for abortive drugs, contraception, and sterilization procedures? Come on! Whether the institution is paying directly or the coverage is "paid for" by the insurance company is irrelevant. Obama is STILL forcing religious organizations to offer the services, only now it's through the insurance company.

As noted at LifeNews.com, "the Obama administration has revised the mandate in a way that pro-life advocates are saying is even worse."

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.

The story notes that this "new rule" will go into effect on August 1, 2012. The Catholic church and other organizations originally had a year to comply, but that has been wiped away.

In addition, the far-reaching encroachment of the Obama administration into the area of freedom of religion has still not been addressed. The media quickly latched on to Obama's talking points about framing this as a "birth control" issue. It's NOT. It's about Obama telling religious organizations what they must do. He's still doing it, and it's WRONG!

The LifeNews.com story quotes Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Jordan as saying:

“This ObamaCare rule still tramples on Americans’ First Amendment right to freedom of religion. It’s a fig leaf, not a compromise. Whether they are affiliated with a church or not, employers will still be forced to pay an insurance company for coverage that includes abortion-inducing drugs,” he said. “This is not just a problem for church-affiliated hospitals and charities. Under these rules, a small business owner with religious objections to abortion-inducing drugs and contraception must either violate his religious beliefs or violate the law.”

“The liberal Obama administration thinks its political goals trump the religious faith of American citizens. That isn’t right, fair, or constitutional,” he said.

Here's what Obama had to say:

Obama talks about basic principles, but what he's really saying is that I'm going to force the taxpayers to pay for it, and I'm going to force religious organizations to cover it.

Not only this this a government overstep, but then there is this whole notion of "free of charge." Nothing is free! Someone always has to pay. Now, it seems that we are paying for Obama's policies not only with our tax dollars but with our loss of religious freedoms as well.

** Please circulate to your friends and colleagues and let them know that this battle is not over. Obama did not "fix" anything. His attack against religion goes on.

      Just who elected Obama King that he can mandate insurance companies to do anything. The only mandate Obama has the Constitutional power to accomplish is another Man Date with Barney Frank. Whatever happened to his promises that Obamacare would not infringe on the rights of religious institutions or personal religious beliefs???? And still have choice.
       
      Obama is all Pro-Choice when it comes to allowing Christians to choose death over life, but demurs when it comes to allowing Christians to Choose their own healthcare and insurance providers, or adhere to their personal religious beliefs. He stomps on our sacred Constitution like he stomps on our Bible, all the while protecting Muslim Terrorists the right and access to their Korans while serving time in prison for murdering American citizens, Someone please tell me, where is the moral clarity here?
       
      Obama seeks to darken the last Christian candles and bastions of American morality so his idea of a national Secular Socialist American collective becomes a larger refuge where in his depraved ideology and socialist members can hide within, when the day of reckoning and accountability arrive for the deeds they encourage us all to do in the darkness.
       
      Obama: “My individual salvation depends on our collective salvation”
       
      In case Reverend Wright didn’t properly instruct you Barry, Knowing Jesus Christ as your personal Savior is known as personal salvation.

    Either Obama is clueless or he thinks we are. The insurance companies don’t provide anything for free. Does he really believe that an accounting trick is going to make this okay? Anyone who is paying for the insurance is subsidizing ALL the services offered by the insurance. You can’t keep the dollars separate. The Catholic institutions will have to drop insurance coverage entirely and pay the Obamacare fine to avoid paying for abortificient drugs. It is probably a lot cheaper than offering insurance coverage anyway and not really enforceable.

      Txgoatlady,

      Unfortunately, most folks have no idea how their insurance really works nor who pays what. Now that my husband and I pay the lion’s share of our insurance thru his employer, we are getting a very hard lesson. With Obamacare, so many medications that were on the formulary are on now requiring prior authorization and thus pushed into a third tier cost. The hoops the insurance companies make you go through are also grueling. 

      Now the insurance comnpanies are forced to pay for contraceptives and so many idjoits have no idea the insurance companies never pay…the consumers do. With Obama’s continous over the top rich vrs poor rhetoric, free enterprise, the constitution, and the middle class don’t stand a chance.

      Mary, as an aside nice Catholic name by the way.  Its not only our Baptist brothers and sisters that are with us on this one – even the Muslims are on our side.  Go figure!  He has succeeded in “uniting” almost 25% of the population of the USA – that would be the Catholic population – against him.  This should definitely lead to his exodus, pardon the Biblical pun, from the White House.  Then the sun will rise in America again.  Pray the rosary for an end to abortion, and all its minions.

    Seriously! Making insurance companies pay for a service they should have been providing all along as part of their service: contraceptives – is just common sense. How is that overreaching? Wake up people, your argument falls on deaf ears of many moderate conservatives like myself. Your religious fervor and feelings about abortion are so clouded you can’t see the wheat through the chaff. Nobody is forcing anyone to use birth control nor use any abortive drugs. The Obama administration is forcing insurance companies to pay for them should a insurer choose to use them. Arguing moral issues in the political arena is yet another reason why the Republicans are going to loose the next election.

      We clearly see the wheat from the chaff. Yes, God indeed does cause the rains to fall upon the good and the evil, but come harvest time the wheat is gathered into the barn, and the chaff is thrown into the fire. Harvest time is in the fall of 2012, and in November the chaff will be burned in the ovens of the American electorate. Obama feels the heat as we speak, so he attempts to hide his weeds among the Wheat so as not to get discovered too soon.

      Why exactly should an insurance company be expected to provide birth control as a “free” medicine when they don’t cover any other drugs with no co-pay?  My pharmacy benefits don’t kick in until we spend $1,000 on medications in a year, and then they only cover 80%.  My mother and father are on Medicare with additional insurance and even though they need certain drugs to stay alive they must pay a co-pay.  Why is one person’s birth control pills more important than someone else’s medicine to keep them alive or functioning? 

      And, are you really naive enough to believe that the costs of these “free” services will be absorbed and not reflected in higher premiums?  When the “free’ preventitive care mandate of Obamacare (PPACA) went in last October our already sky high premiums went up $150/month ($1,800 per year).  Whe I called and asked the insurance company why…they were forthright and said, “To comply with PPACA”.  When I called the insurance commission in my state they said it was perfectly legal for them to raise the rates as the change created a new type of policy.

      They don’t have to “believe” and don’t give a fig what the rest of us believe as long as there still remains a standing herd of cattle willing to follow him as their new messiah.  Obama doesn’t believe it’s free.   His intention is to force us into a dependent population and that goal is well underway.  The whole communist game plan really works very well whenever a populace is gradually moving towards rampant dependency on the government and rest are busy on the golf course or slamming chests over the latest boob tube sporting event.

    If any of you here were medical professionals, your “expert” opinion on the use of contraceptives might be of value.  However, as none are, your opinions are of little value.  The majority of women on birth control do so for reasons beyond simple protection from conception and birth.  Regardless, this is a topic for women and their doctors, not for rules to be made by people who have no involvement whatsoever.  Forcing your personal moral beliefs upon others should not be allowed.  This is all about women’s health and who should have access to healthcare.  If a church’s lose affiliates become employers of large numbers of women, then they need to accept that those employees need and deserve access to healthcare just like other employees across the nation.  Religion needs to be kept out of politics and public policy.

      Hey waterway,  I’m not a NAZI party member nor a Communist – does that mean I do not know about what they stand for or have done?  AND that they ARE EVIL and I do not want anything to do with their ideology or way of life.

      You say we have “no involvement whatsoever” in the outcomes of the decisions these women have taken.  Really, are you sure?  Lets see.  In Europe, this American idea of killing your unborn child has been embraced for a long time now.  EUROPE IS DYING! In some countries, it is so ingrained that it is standard practice to start indoctrinating their people as early as kindergarten!  That’s correct!  They learn about sex in all its forms -heterosexual and homosexual.  They learn about contraception and abortion and lets not forget the final one -euthanasia.  Great – their countries are not replacing themselves.  How nice that is.  Contraception is NOT healthcare, because pregnancy is NOT a decease – your mother had YOU!  Abortion is NOT healthcare, because the child is not sick and if it is there are procedures that can be used to provide healthcare for the child.  The ONLY reason that this country of ours is not dying as fast as Europe is is because of the immigration that occurs here – legal and illegal.  When those people become assimilated – good bye America!

      You are correct that moral beliefs cannot be forced on anyone, but conversely, IMMORAL behaviors have been made into “LAW” in this land of the free and home of the brave.  Think of “no-fault marriage laws”  IMMORAL; the so-called “Right to Abortion.”  Of course, its not found anywhere in our Constitution – it was jammed into law on foreign precedence!  Foreign precedence – not any case in US jurisprudence!  if it EVER came in front of the Supreme Court – it would be overturned.  I believe it may happen sooner than later.  True the war would not be over – but a huge battle would have been finally won – after almost 40 years and over 40 million casualties, of which 16 million are black babies.  Oh, waterway, there’s more to tell – but I think this is good for now.

    I agree with most of the comments.  But everyone is missing the main point.  President Obama does not have the authority under the constituition to tell the Catholic Church to do anything.  The first amendment guarantees it.  He also does not have the authority to tell insurance company that they have to pay for anything.  Obama is the President he is not a dictator or a king.  This is the point that has to be emphasised.  He has to be challenged every time he tries to usurp authority he does not have.  Laws are made by the legislature he cannot just decree whatever he thinks will get him votes at the morning.

    Obama has proven himself unworthy to hold the office of President.  He must be voted out and until that happens he must be challenged everytime he act like a king or dictator.

      Recruiterrx, you are right on the money, but notice the low scores applied to your comment.  It seems that a lot of people don’t want the truth and refuse to accept it.  The main stream media has sided with Obama, they are trying to frame this as a “womens’ health” issue.  Look at the large number of people are buying into that lie.  This is a blatant attempt to dictate to the church what they can and can’t do, and Obama is overstepping his authority and violating the First Amendment.  He has broken several laws and violated the Constitution so many times, he just thinks he can keep doing it.  He needs to be IMPEACHED before the upcoming election.  We don’t need to take the chance that he might be voted in for a second term.

      You’re absolutely correct — he does not have the authority under the constitution which I’m sure he knows considering he is a constitutional lawyer.  The whole thing is a farce taking into account that Catholic Health organization groups carry their own insurance, so that they would in effect be the “insurance companies” now obligated to pay for these procedures.

      The low scores are just reflective of his paid ACORN political operatives who are rewarded for jumping on Conservative websites to confuse the debate and lower Consdervative position scores. Just keep telling the truth and we will see past the fog of their manipulations. It only serves to give them a false impression they are winning the debate but we all know better.

      Unfortunately, it looks as though this maneuver in regards to the Catholic Church is becoming an assest to Obama, as all the women groups all over this country according to Fox, are now backing him up.  The latest poll is that 60% of all women think he’s doing a “marvelous service for women.” 

      It’s safe to assume that many of these women are Catholics, as Obama had an apostate Nun who is pro everything, praising this latest move to make Insurance Companies pay for the services.  She thinks it’s a great day for the woman’s movement.  This is not working out the way we all thought it would, and is actually having an adverse effect.  If it’s true that some liberal Bishops believe it’s a “first good step in the right direction,” according to the announcements, we are toast come election time. Some of the Insurance Companies that aren’t associated with the Church but are providing for them are behind this move by Obama.

      Thank you recruiterrx,
      While reading these comments I was wondering why no one had mentioned the fact that the President doesn’t have any Constitutional authority to change laws.  That is Congress’ job.

      There is so much evidence to convict President Obama of treason against the United States but he seems to be untouchable.  Some how popularity has become more important than legal/illegal and constitutional/unconstitutional.  It is truly a black mark on America’s record that we not only allowed this man to become President but that he hasn’t been impeached and then tried for treason.

      It didn’t start with President Obama, the trend that the people are too stupid to govern themselves is decades past now.  Every one “on the Hill” has sworn to protect the Constitution of the United States but almost every one of them votes to pass laws that violate that very oath on a regular basis.

      The foundation of this nation is about doing what is right.  This nation needs to stop worshiping money.  Everything is about the economy.  The economy needs to be a secondary concern.  If we want America to be great again we have to get back to America’s foundation.  After reading our founding father’s documents, speeches and quotes, I am convinced that America is founded on Godly principles.

      We can’t legislate morality nor should we try, but as lalvarez62 also mentions we shouldn’t legislate immorality either.  People used to be ashamed to “come out of the closet” but now “it’s a right”.  Sexual preference and birth control aren’t “rights”.  They are personal choices, and as such, they are responsible not only to make sure their choices don’t violate another citizens “rights” but also to pay for their own choices.

      This is America…We trust in God.  Others may choose to live in this nation and they won’t be secondary citizens.  They have that right.  But they are the ones who choose to live in a Christian nation and will be obligated to act accordingly.

    I am sure the insurance industry is complicit with Obama on this. 
    The insurance industry will gladly give away birth control for free, because it reduces what they have to pay for pregnancies, deliveries and children growing up to age 26.

    It’s obvious that Obama was looking to win votes over this accommodation. It’s not about money stupid!

    Obama is declaring war on freedom of religion by infringing on their moral values. Some Catholics in name only like Pelosi are pushing hard for this anti-Catholic legislation. Even if Obama does not give in the Supreme Court will find this unconstitutional. 

    Obama may have a $1B campaign war chest, but even with all of his slick-talk messages that will air on all of the TV networks it will do him no good. The voters have finally looked at the real Obama and don’t like what they see. The sooner we move him and his liberal commie czars from the White House the better.

      It’s true that he’s never showed any credentials in regards to being a Constitutional lawyer, however, the University where he taught Constitutional law is supposedly backing him up without providing any proof.  His school records according to his own volition were poor which is probably why they won’t provide his records.

    Do you really believe Obbie backed down!?! All this is robbing Peter to pay Paul! The insurance companies have to pass the cost on. It is a reality of being able to do business and to stay in business. This man is not a president, he is a dictator! In a court, one lawyer asks a question and the other objects. Next comes, “Let me restate that …” It is no more than not what he is saying but how he is saying it. DO NOT BE FOOLED!

      I saw the Catholic reply on Fox and they see right thru the ruse and vow to fight on.  The Catholics pay the Catholic Church and the Catholic Church pays higher premiums to the insurance carrier thereby all Catholics are contributing to birth control and abortion.  Quite unconstitutional and just plain wrong.  The Catholic Church is just the FIRST target, more to follow. 

      Obama has won enough prior ‘backdoor’ battles in the past three years that he is now confident enough to think he can do a ‘full frontal assault’ on our Constitutional Rights.  This must cease and desist at all costs.

      Here’s a small article with Rush’s thoughts on the subject which I agree with wholeheartedly.

      I just hope what you saw on Fox is more true than what I just saw, as 60% of the women think he’s doing a ”marvelous service for women.”  They claim that even some of the Insurance Companies actually like this idea.  It looks as though it might be backfiring on us.

If you people wern’t so blinded by your religious fervor you might actually be able to think logically about all this, instead of strictly with emotion. You are all falling for this smoke screen of religious and moral issues the candidates are creating to prevent them from having to talk about the real issues. This country is going broke and none of these clowns and puppets running for President have a clue how to fix the problem. If we end up like Greece none of this will matter, we will all be broke and no-body will have health care.

    This President has decided that our federal government has the power to force private insurance companies to cover whatever the government thinks they should cover, and if they can do that, what are the bounds of the government relative to our PRIVATE companies ingeneral. This administration started down this path with the Obamacare mandate, which will be challenged as to its constitutionality in the Supreme Court this summer. If Obama is allowed this much control over private company products and services, then we are accelerating his long term plan to “nationalize” our private industries like every other leader of a major communist or socialist country has done. The latest in our hemisphere is Hugo Chavez in Venezula, who has taken over major private industry areas in his country like communications and energy by just conviscating their assets and taking over the management control of the companies involved.

    As Roman Catholic who follows the tenets of my faith, a small business owner, and parent of two little girls I will be forced to put our family’s health in jeopardy because we will no longer be able to have health insurance and follow our moral conscience. 

    As it is we pay an astronomical premium as an individual (rather than group) insured.  We had no choice but to take this high premium, high deductible, low benefits policy because there aren’t too many choices if you don’t work for a large company and want to have maternity benefits.  If they force everyone to be covered with insurance or face a fine or prison we’ll be in a real quandry. 

    Why is daddy not here at the dinner table?…because he couldn’t go against his morals and buy insurance and the President said that made him a criminal.. Yup, that is really caring for women when a wife and children are left to fend for themselves!

    Abortion?   You think that’s all you’ve been funding?  The United Nations will be knocking at your door pretty soon looking for any combat age youth, those with educations, and any missionaries.

    Oh, wait.  I’ve mixed them up with the Viet Cong and Kmer Rouge.  (Or is it the Muslims?  Hard to keep straight.  They all look alike to me.) 

    There’s only one answer as to why %60 of the women like Obummer.  They’ve slipped a stupid mickey into the nation’s contraceptive pill supplies.  See, that’s why they want all women on contraceptives and the rest aborting.  The elderly, who are the only ones who remember the definition for “education”, will be euthanised and the general riff-raff left will be welded to their boob tubes with conveyor belt fast foods within arms reach.  So, the latter will die off at early ages of diabetes, assorted cancers, heart disease.  That will leave lots of empty homes for the illegal aliens.

    The point is James T: things do make sense to me, and I don’t need “The Lord” to show me the way, thank you. I see the issues logically and hear the hypocrisy. The zealous religious right who hijacked the Republican party before the last election (and forced that bimbo on McCain) are going to screw up this election also. It is sad because I’ve been a Republican all my life, but now I am thoroughly disgusted with both parties and like many Americans I find myself totally disappointed with all the candidates.

    Obama and his abortion allies have a very effective plan.  Push the pill – they’re laced with “stupidity”, explaining why %60 of the women still think he is peachy-keen and the reason for simultaneously pushing abortion.  Euthanize the elderly (the educated), stupidize the uninformed, and fill the empty homes with the lethally uninformed illegal immigrants.
