Religious Liberty Upheld

In a 7 to 2 decision, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Colorado baker that refused to bake a same sex cake on his religious convictions. The court’s decision cited the Colorado Civil Rights Commission showed an impermissible hostility toward religion when it found that baker Jack Phillips violated the state’s anti-discrimination law by refusing gay couple David Mullins and Charlie Craig in 2012.

This could have been all avoided if only the two gay men had went to another bakery. However, it seems this baker was singled out because of his religious conscience. Like the florist that was also targeted for refusing to be involved in a gay wedding. Increasingly, it seems a militant side of the gay community was deliberately targeting people of religious conscience. You will accept our lifestyle, or else we’ll destroy your business, your livelihood, your reputation, and you will be labeled a hater. This perceived discrimination is a lie. If anything, the baker was discriminated against by these two militant gays. You didn’t see the baker make a fool of himself like these two gays did going public. They were two desperate drama queens pretending to be weepy eyed over being refused a cake. Paleese!

The difference was neither of the two business owners discriminated against gays. The cake maker and the florist never refused to sell them any of their products. They just did not want to be involved in designing for a gay event because it violated their religious convictions. It was their First Amendment right. The court cited the Colorado commission was ‘Openly Antagonistic’ towards the baker’s religious beliefs about marriage. Plus the baker had also refuse to design cakes with slurs against gay people.

I find it ironic that these gay militants are the same people that scream at the government to stay out of their bedroom. Yet, they seem to publicly display their bedroom activity for the whole world to see. Honestly, I really don’t care to know what goes on in anyone’s bedroom, gay or otherwise. Too much information. So when I see a gay pride parade, I’d rather be somewhere else. I’m not denying them the right to parade themselves around, but it’s just not something I’m into. To each their own.

Here in Hawai’i, there is a large gay population. Most live quiet lives. They have families, children, and live their lives like everyone else. We have friendships, get together’s for company events, school events, all the socialization you would normally expect. I believe that what all people want, is that to show respect for others, as one would expect in return. I’m glad the court saw it that way also. As I said, this was all unnecessary pilikia.

We have a Constitution that is the supreme law of the land. In it, it says, that all people are made by their creator equally and with certain inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of their own happiness. The constitution does not provide for any people to be a special protected class. There is no need for civil rights commissions. Inherently, such commissions do discriminate, they divide people, they can be misused, as in this case. E pluribus unum – Out of Many, One. To err is human, to forgive is divine.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. 

I was once asked, ‘How do you define perfection?’ The answer is that you cannot, but you can strive for perfection. I’ve lived a lot of places in this world, and I’ve seen discrimination up close. There is no other country like the United States, and we are always just one generation away from losing these rights. While we may not be perfect, we have the means to self-correct. It’s found in one document that is the framework for our freedoms. Let hope there isn’t another repeat of this nonsense of perceived discrimination. There are more important things to be worried about, and cakes are not one of them.

Are There Limits To Free Speech?

dimmy

The short answer is No!  When our Constitutional Rights are affronted by cowards that would capitulate to murderous savages, then they neither deserve security nor liberty.  That is the case regarding the attacks against the American Freedom Defense Initiative  in Garland Texas by Islamic terrorists.  The event was about cartoons.

Luckily, there was an police officer there with superior marksmanship skills and thwarted what could have been a bloodbath.  What happened afterwards was shocking.

mediaBlame

The media blamed the attack on the American Freedom Defense Initiative.  The group is organized by Pamela Geller.  She runs the blog Atlas Shrugs and she is an activist fighting for free speech rights in America.  The group has been responsible for fighting back against Islamic jihad terrorism around the world.  By bringing awareness to the public what the media refuses to discuss, the slaughter of innocent people around the world by radical Islamic terrorists.  It was about satirical cartoons and some believe that was being too provocative.

hebdo

Never have I’ve seen such sympathy for intolerant Muslim trash. The Muslims were there to kill people, and the media is calling a Free Speech event a provocation. There has been numerous Islamic crimes around America: Ft. Hood shooter, Boston bombers, New Jersey beheading’s, Oklahoma grandmother beheaded, honor killing of teenage girls, and the list goes on and on. There is the media, blaming the victims and not the Islamic terrorists.

Megyn Kelly to Richard Fowler, “Do you hear what you are saying?”  You’re asking people to give up their First Amendment right to free speech.  At least there were some journalists that understand the meaning of Free Speech.  Irregardless if anyone finds speech offensive, it is still protected speech.  I was really surprised that some Fox News journalists took the side of the terrorists.  Terrorism is not free speech.

martha

Muslim clerics would find women in dresses and high heels as provocative, because they are not dress in hefty garbage bags.  In Islamic countries, women dressed like Martha MacCallum would be stoned to death.

Woman-with-three-kids Local Muslim Woman and Her ‘Three Children’ Mistakenly Picked Up By Municipal Trash Collectors

Via The Volokh Conspiracy:  The University of Minnesota decided to host a panel on the Charlie Hebdo murders.  After receiving complaints from Muslim students, the university’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action [EOAA] ordered staff to take down copies of the flyers, both from bulletin boards and from any university Web sites.

Luckily, the dean of the College of Liberal Arts, John Coleman, promptly reversed that order, and has also refused to go along with the EOAA’s request that he publicly condemn the use of the Muhammad image.  Fortunately, it looks like the academics at the University of Minnesota, including the dean, understand the principle of Free Speech.

There doesn’t seem to be any issues with satire against other world religions.  Christianity with crucifixes in jars of urine.  Jews depicted in Muslim cartoons as monsters.  Buddhist and Hindus illustrated in disparaging cartoons.  However, you don’t see any of these religions committing murders in the name of their religion.  Then again, Islam is not a religion, it is a cult of intolerance and slavery.

Leftist in America and Europe have coddled these Islamic extremists.  Cowards will always capitulate to terror.  Barry the Bullshitter (Obama), said that the prophet of Islam must not be slandered.  Why not?

While Obama says nothing about the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East, Obama has plenty to say about racial tensions in this country, and he continues to fan the flames of racism.  Obama seems more concerned about Islamic terrorists, than the safety of Americans.  We have two Muslims in Congress that want Sharia law enforced over Constitutional Law.  Leftist democrats are promoting a welfare state for votes.

Now, the terrorist group ISIS says they will murder Pamela Geller and kill anyone who shields her.

The terrorists also say they have 71 fighters in 15 different states and they 23 have signed up already for missions like the failed Sunday attack in Garland, Texas.

What is this country doing about this threat?  One of the dead terrorists was known by authorities, and yet he attempted to murder people.  The terrorist only need to win once, and then people will ask, “how did this happen”.  It’s because they let it happen.

Leftist Redefine Freedoms

intolerance

Whatever happened to I have the Right to Refuse Service?  No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service!

Suppose someone came into your place of business and asked you to perform a service that violated your conscience.   You refuse to perform that service and the customer sues you and your business for discrimination.  This is becoming more frequent these days.  It is called reverse discrimination.  Watch the Dog Painter video.

Indiana’s governor Mike Pence has become the latest causality in what is a war against religious freedom by intolerant leftist groups.  They frequently use the courts as a weapon to claim discrimination, when there is no discrimination present.

“Love the sinner, hate the sin.”  Leftist say, but now you must participate in the sin, or get sued, lose your business, or go to jail.  That’s a loss of your Constitutional Rights!

It all goes back some decades ago when leftist politicians started packing the courts with leftist judges that are hell bound to destroy your God-given rights.  In particular, your First Amendment Right.

The Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) was written to protect people of conscience from being discriminated against by bigots that hate religion.  The attacks range from removing “In God We Trust” off of United States currency, to forcing small business owners to participate in acts that violate their religious principles.

Black-Baker-and-KKK1

Leftist have become the new look of intolerance and discrimination.  The usual hucksters of intolerance get themselves in front of a TV camera to make wild claims of discrimination, when there is none.  Al Sharpton is the poster child of racial discrimination and bigotry, and NBC has given this racist his own show to spread his hatred.

Dan Savage, a disgusting x-rated gay activist, that routinely bashes Christians is getting a ABC/Disney television show.  Isn’t that special!

A perusal of Dan Savage’s work reveals a career built on advocating violence — even murder — and spewing hatred against people of faith. Savage has spared no one with whom he disagrees from his vitriolic hate speech. Despite his extremism, vulgarity, and unabashed encouragement of dangerous sexual practices, Disney ABC is moving forward with this show, disgustingly titled Family of the Year.”

This is the objective by extremist gay activists, to force their lifestyle into American homes, expose children to this lifestyle and destroy Christian religious family values.  If you wonder why more Christian families are opting to home school, then it is because of this activity Christians find religiously immoral.

CNN’s host Sally Kohn tweeted out a PSA for her followers:  You Guys, I’m bowling for abortion access!  Donate Now!”  Kohn is joining the National Abortion Access Bowl-A-Thon in an effort to raise money for abortions. The event is a nationwide series from the National Network of Abortion Funds that allows community members to raise money to help pay for abortions with their friendly neighborhood abortion funds. (Their Words)  Talk about worshiping the gods of death.  I find Kohn more of a mental sickness, than a religious argument.  Celebrating the murder of innocents is a mental disorder.

Apple’s Tim Cook spoke about discrimination but fails to acknowledge discrimination against what Mozilla did to Brendan Eich to remove him from the company as CEO.  Cook is a hypocrite for not recognizing people’s religious rights.  For these extremist groups, the road of discrimination is a one way street.  They can discriminate against you and your beliefs, but you cannot protect yourself against their discrimination.

RFRA was signed into law in 1993 by then President Bill Clinton.  There were no cries of discrimination then.  RFRA simply allows religious liberties to be raised as a defense in lawsuits brought by bigots wanted to force their lifestyle upon others.  A religious liberty may be offered as a defense against a lawsuit, but is not a guarantee that this defense will be accepted in a court of law.  Not when activist judges routinely rule in favor of bigots wanting to make an example out of innocent people practicing their religious beliefs.   That is pure discrimination by the courts.

RFFA

 

Gay-rights activism is, just at the moment, very much oriented toward preventing the emergence of any social compromise on the matter of homosexual marriage, which is why tradition-minded florists and bakers, generally conservative Christians, are being targeted for prosecution as enemies of civil rights. In terms of government interest, homosexual couples planning wedding receptions in Connecticut are a good deal less compelling than were black Americans who were effectively circumscribed from public life — political, social, and economic — under the machinery of oppression constructed by Democrats after the Civil War. Among other things, the market provides same-sex couples plenty of other options. But gay-rights activists insist that the situations are morally and politically identical. That this view is rightly received with some skepticism by the general public — including much of the public inclined to support gay marriage and similar issues — is why the increasingly fanatical homosexual activists reject the notion that religious liberty might even be raised as an issue in the case of a wedding planner who does not wish to be involved in the blessing of a homosexual union. Their goal is a coercive coast-to-coast regime with no room for social compromise at all.

 So why don’t the gay-rights activists just move on to another bakery, photographer, or florist?  Why create more tension against those that don’t share in the gay lifestyle by attacking them in court?

What I find equally interesting is how real discrimination against gays in Muslim countries are ignored by the gay community.  Muslim savages don’t discriminate between Christian and Gays, they kill them both with equal hatred.  Yet, you never hear any discussion about these atrocities in the name of Allah.

Muslim activists in America have been using the same discrimination playbook to spread their hatred.  This creeping social intolerance is just an strategy to silence those that don’t share their lifestyle.  Muslims want to impose Sharia laws in America, one law for them, and another law for you.  How is this any different from the tactics the Gay mafia uses to discriminate against Christians?

publichanging

Isn’t ironic that these activist groups surround themselves with righteous death, and reject a life of freedom.  They all have one goal in common that that is to destroy the God given freedoms and the laws of freedom in the Constitution.  They want to rewrite the Bill of Rights to only give selective rights to those that agree with their lifestyle.

Leftist use the same false argument; if gays walk into a business, they will be denied service.  FALSE!  That’s NOT the case at all! It is being forced to participate in an activity, that’s the objection.  The baker didn’t refuse to sell cakes.  The florist didn’t refuse to sell flowers.  The photographer didn’t refuse to take pictures.  They all refused to participate in the activity.  I wouldn’t want to be forced to watch either a play with a bunch of burly guys swapping spit on stage, or a play about women discussing their vagina’s.  That’s not a religious objection, that’s personal decision.  If you want to watch that garbage, then have at it.  I’ll move on and do something else, and the activists should have found another bakery, florist, and photographer.  Use some common sense and get along.

Now lets get this clear.  The government has no business forcing people to participate in a activity that goes against their religious beliefs.  You can neither force a Jewish delicatessen to sell ham, and nor can you force Christians to participate in activities against their religious beliefs.  Damaging people’s lives with lawsuits, destroying businesses, jobs, and livelihoods; all because you disagree with their conscience objection not to engage in an objectionable activity is discrimination.  Be it religious, or not!

AMERICA SURRENDERS!

obama_dictator

The purple lipped bastard child, also known as comrade Barry Sotoro Hussein Obama, has surrendered to Castro’s Communist Cuba.  The United States will now abandon the Constitution and embrace Marxist oligarchy rule.  Of course, the doting media will call it a victory for progressivism, and some ignorant Republicans will agree with the surrender of our system of government.  It’s the establishment’s way of holding on to power and ignoring the will of the people.  The People, obviously are not smart enough to know what’s good for them, [sic] Gruberization.

Sony and movie theaters surrender to the short little fat man from North Korea.  Apparently, if you are a communist dictator, you can restrict free speech from miles away.  Remember when movie makers used to make fun of our enemies during World War II?

 

The hypocrisy and cowardness of political correctness.  The progressive touchy feely of self censorship when it’s convenient to them.   Remember when a movie came out about the assassination of President George W. Bush?  The movie was called, “Death of a President“.  It was a crappy movie that was shown all over the world, including in the USA.  Were there death threats against the movie producers?  Nope!

Yet, Sony corporation wussies pull the movie “The Interview“, because the dictator of North Korea had a hissy fit over the idea that he gets wacked by two raunchy comedians.  Who knew rich one percenters could be intimidated so easily?

The reasons Obama gave for normalizing relationship with Cuba are all lies.  The top 10 lies in Obama’s Cuba speech can be found here.

Raul Castro’s daughter, Mariela Castro is Cuban President Raul Castro’s daughter and is also a member of their Parliament. She is responding defiantly in the face of the outreach from the always exploitative Obama and his bankster henchmen.  She says in the interview, “If the U.S. thinks these changes will bring Cuba back to capitalism and return to being a servile country to the interests of the most powerful financial groups in the U.S., they must be dreaming.”

If you reward bad behaviour, then you encourage bad behaviour.  Obama has done just that by legitimizing a brutal dictatorship regime.  Then again, Obama isn’t into leadership, he’d rather follow by example.   It’s no wonder why our allies no longer trust us, and our enemies are laughing at us.

Dianne Feinstein profile:

Dianne Goldman Berman Feinstein is the senior United States Senator from California. A member of the Democratic Communist Party, she has served in the Senate since 1992. She also served as 38th Mayor of San Francisco from 1978 to 1988. Wikipedia

Born: June 22, 1933 (age 79), San Francisco

Office: Senator (D-CA) since 1992

Previous offices: Mayor of San Francisco (1978 – 1988), San Francisco Supervisor (1969 – 1978)

Education: Stanford University (1956), Convent of the Sacred Heart High School

Children: Katherine Feinstein Mariano

 

Feinstein and Obama want to take your guns away because some crazy loon shot up a school full of children.  She want’s you to think that’s the real reason why she wants guns banned, but its not!  Feinstein has been trying to ban guns all of her political life.  Feinstein has used any lame excuse try and ban legal responsible citizens from their Second Amendment rights.

Never mind that there are millions of legal gun owners who have never committed a crime, Feinstein will treat you as a criminal just for owning a gun.  She wants to confiscate guns and leave citizens defenseless.  Fienstein has called these guns “assault weapons” and she says she doesn’t see why anyone needs to own one.  Does Feinstein remember the LA Riots?

Published on Apr 28, 2012

People ask, why in a modern civilized society do private citizens need to own firearms? Well, here’s a great example. The police were no where to be found, mobs with bricks, bottles, and pipes were looting and burning stores, especially Korean owned stores. Some people were beaten then had their businesses destroyed. Others fled the area and found their stores destroyed when they returned days later. Few stood their ground and were willing to defend the businesses that their families built.

Most people think that guns lead to violence and chaos, well all the chaos was down the street. I think Hal Fishman and Larry McCormick said it best.
Larry, “It seems like every man on that roof was armed.”
Hal, “and thus far there does not seem to be any looting or burning at least right where they are.”

The store survived the riots and the building still stands 20 years later at Western and 5th.

 

Guns For Me, But Not For Thee

Mark Levin exposes Feinstein’s hypocrisy

This audio should go “viral/ballistic” 

Dianne Feinstein is a hypocrite.  She explains that she was a target by terrorists and she armed herself!  Yet, she wants to disarm the populist because she thinks you are not responsible enough to own a gun.  Feinstein would rather see you defenseless against criminals with guns.  Feinstein considers legal responsible gun owners as criminals.  This is insanity!  This is such arsine reasoning it borders on criminality!  I suggest Feinstein live under her own stupidity and give up her guns and armed bodyguards.  Let’s see if hypocrite Feinstein agrees to disarm herself!

There is a reason why we have a Second Amendment and without the Second Amendment, the First Amendment falls.  When the First Amendment falls, the Constitution is then Null and Void.  Our Freedoms as we have known them will be gone.  We will be nothing more than a banana republic where rampant crime will go unchecked.  Government will have failed to protect the people.  In other countries like Australia and England, where guns have been confiscated by the government, crime has skyrocketed putting innocent  people at risk.  The government doesn’t care about defenseless citizens, nor does the government care that only criminals will have guns.

These communists: Feinstein, Obama and others that want to destroy the Constitution are dangerous and they need to be stopped before it’s too late.  They are anti-Constitutionalists that are hell-bent on destroying our freedoms.

Criminals will have guns and other weapons to use against their victims.  A defenseless citizenry are easy targets by criminals.  It is not the governments role to be in the position of making legislation to put citizens at risk of either losing their property or their lives!  Government does not know what’s best for its people.  The Founders knew this when they crafted the Second Amendment to follow the First Amendment.

Free Speech Under Attack

Kū'ē i kō ha'i mana'o

KPUA, the local AM radio station in Hilo Hawai’i has pulled the Rush Limbaugh show from their programming schedule.  In an act of intolerance and a attack on Free Speech. 

Posted: Monday, March 5th, 2012 10:22 AM HST

KPUA cancels Rush Limbaugh radio show in Hilo

By 67AM KPUA News
Hilo, Hawaii March 5, 2012: New West Broadcasting announced today that it is discontinuing the Rush Limbaugh program on KPUA AM 670 in Hilo, Hawaii effective immediately.Chris Leonard, President and General Manager of New West released the following statement this morning:“We have always encouraged spirited discussion about national and local issues on KPUA and from time to time those discussions may be deemed by some to be objectionable. We are strong believers in the first amendment and have recognized Mr. Limbaugh’s right to express opinions that often times differ from our own, but
it has never been our goal to allow our station to be used for personal attacks and intolerance. The most recent incident has crossed a line of decency and a standard that we expect of programming on KPUA whether it is locally produced or a syndicated program like the Rush Limbaugh show.

While much of the national debate regarding this issue is now being framed in political terms, the decision for us is one of decency and responsibility. Regardless of one’s political views on the issue being discussed, we feel the delivery was degrading and the continued comments over several days to be egregious. As a result, we are discontinuing the Rush Limbaugh program on KPUA effective immediately.”

For questions or comments, email us at news@kpua.net

KPUA is a CBS affiliate, so it is apart of the network of intolerant leftest news stations.  This knee jerk reaction to pull the Rush Limbaugh is an attack on Free Speech.  Even in the statement on KPUA’s website does not justify “spirited discussion”, it does show intolerance to free speech.

Why has KPUA chosen to punish their listeners by pulling the Rush Limbaugh show from their programming schedule?  Because Rush commented on a political activist that is apart of the Culture of Death.  Rush commented on the testimony of Sandra Fluke that was staged as a phony demonstration conducted by the Socialist Democrats and Nancy Pelosi (a.k.a. Nazi Piglosi).  In an effort to change the attacks on Religious Consciences and the First Amendment by Obama and his Marxist Regime, the Democrats have tried to make contraception out to be a woman’s health issue.  The two are not related in any sense.  That’s the crime that Rush and his listeners are being punished for.

Rush asked a question about Sandra Fluke’s testimony about women not having access to contraception.  He asked what does that make her?  A Slut!  Sandra Fluke went on to claim using examples of women she claims to know, having sex, and having medical issues because of the lack of contraception availability.  This testimony was given in full public disclosure to a panel of Socialist Democrats that supports a culture of immorality and death.  Sandra Fluke was advancing Obama’s policy to use contraception as a whole new entitlement program.

When in reality, the Socialist Democrats were attempting to change the subject on Obama’s attacks on religion and the First Amendment.  Rush did apologized over the weekend.  Here is what Rush said:

A Statement from Rush

March 03, 2012

For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week.  In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.

My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.

As a result, KPUA decided to punish its listeners and pull the Rush Limbaugh show.  But what Rush said wasn’t anything Rush hasn’t said before.  Other radio talk show hosts have said far worse things.  Leftist talk show hosts like Ed Schultz, Bill Press and Mike Malloy have said far worse things.  But this all a distraction away from the larger issue.

What the larger issue is about is the government forcing religious institutions to go against their conscience.  What this is about is the government forcing religious institutions to supply contraception to their employees.  It is about the government forcing you to purchase a product which is against your religious beliefs.  This is NOT about Sandra Fluke.  This not about Rush Limbaugh either.  This is about free speech.  This is about freedom of choice.  This about religious freedoms.  This about the Obama Regime attacking the United States Constitution.

As a result, I have decided not to listen to KPUA or support their advertisers until KPUA returns Rush Limbaugh to their programming schedule.  We don’t have a lot of radio stations here in Hilo.  We don’t have any talk radio stations at all, except for KPUA’s sports talk shows.  For KPUA’s management to cancel the Rush Limbaugh show over his comments is just another attack on free speech.  It is wrong!  I have sent KPUA an email expressing my disappointment with their decision and I hope they change their misguided decision.

Not Having Babies Upholds Religious Liberties

Prostitute

“So you are saying, by not having babies born, we are going to save money on health care?”

The testimony of a Georgetown College Co-ed, Sandra Fluke, regarding contraception has brought a new level of disingenuousness by the Socialist Democrats.  After listening to her testimony, I can only come to the conclusion that she was a deliberate plant to further inject birth control into the political discourse.  It was Obama that declared that birth control would be provided “free-of-charge” by employers and insurance companies.  It was against the religious beliefs of many people, so Obama said, OK, then only insurers have to provide contraception.  Who pays for the insurance?  It’s the same thing.

Sandra Fluke’s testimony had some really outrageous claims.  Going broke paying for contraception; women getting raped and believing they had no recourse; getting cancerous tumors because of no contraception; basically a laundry list of sob stories and why religious institutions must pay for her contraception.

Sandra Fluke is a student at Georgetown Law. She’s also a “reproductive rights activist” who agrees wholeheartedly with the Obama administration’s controversial contraceptive mandate. Her reasoning, though, is likely to enrage some critics.

During a testimony in front of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee on Monday (a meeting that was held by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi), Fluke — who was coincidentally the only witness heard — described the financial constraints that purchasing birth control puts on her peers.

“Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy,” Fluke said, referring to the fact that the university doesn’t pay for contraception. “Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school.”

She detailed, among other stories, how one woman felt “embarrassed” and “powerless” at the pharmacy counter when she “learned for the first time” that contraceptives weren’t covered by the university’s health care plan.

CNS News’ Craig Bannister, though, challenged Fluke’s $3,000 figure and came up with some pretty interesting numbers: $3,000 for birth control in three years? That’s a thousand dollars a year of sex — and, she wants us to pay for it. […] At a dollar a condom if she shops at CVS pharmacy’s website, that $3,000 would buy her 3,000 condoms — or, 1,000 a year… Assuming it’s not a leap year, that’s 1,000 divided by 365 — or having sex 2.74 times a day, every day, for three straight years. And, I thought Georgetown was a Catholic university where women might be prone to shun casual, unmarried sex. At least its health insurance doesn’t cover contraception (that which you subsidize, you get more of, you know).

This isn’t the first time Fluke has made her voice heard in the halls of Congress. Earlier this month, it was reported that Democrat Representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Eleanor Norton (D-DC) and their anger over the lack of female witnesses present at a previous contraceptive hearing.

The congresswomen wanted Fluke to be permitted to speak at the event, but Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) declined to allow it, stating that Fluke was not an expert in religious freedom, which was the issue being investigated.

Fluke, though, responded by claiming that women should be included in the discussion. She also alleged that a friend of hers died because of a lack of access to contraception and accused Issa of silencing the people who have the most authority to speak on the subject.

Contraception is easily available through many sources.  Planned Parenthood is one source that will supply contraception.  The example she used in her testimony is absolutely either false or just the worse case of personal responsibility.  However, I think there is something else that no one is considering.  It’s to distract from Obama’s abysmal record.

Obamacare is unconstitutional.  The Socialist Democrats know that.  Nazi Piglosi knows that.  That’s why the Socialist Democrats want more power over you.  They know that Obama cannot get reelected on his record, so they are creating a non-issue to deflect from Obama’s abysmal record of policy failures.  By non-issue I mean it is not a national issue that deserves to be apart of the dialog for either the Presidential or State elections.  It is an important issue for people of faith because it violates their consciences, and it’s not just Catholics, it’s all religions that find contraception objectionable.  I find it objectionable for the same reasons, including the First Amendment establishment clause.  It is simply unconstitutional.

No one is denying contraception to either women or men.  What Obama is saying is that it has to be made free-of-charge.  Other than the air we breathe, nothing is for free.  This is disguised as social justice.  They are saying that I must pay for free contraception.  However, contraception is available everywhere, and in some places it is free.  The government practically gives it away.  So why is this becoming an issue?  It’s a deflection away from Obama’s and the Socialist Democrats failed policies.  While everyone is distracted with this non-issue, our soldiers are getting killed because of Obama apology to the Afghans who desecrating their own book.  This regime is spending trillions of tax dollars on failed green energy projects.  This regime is destroying American jobs, and we are fixated on contraception?

Of course, anyone who heard former Presidential candidate Obama utter his “that’s above my pay grade” answer to Reverend Rick Warren’s question as to “when a baby gets human rights” – either had their head in the sand – or was no friend of children in the womb themselves. 

President Obama has selected Catholics to serve in his administration who openly defy their own Church. Now, as if that wasn’t bad enough, all of the subterfuge and sophistry which has surrounded his promise to honor religious liberty and respect freedom of conscience in the implementation of his “Affordable care Act” has been unmasked.

“The Obama administration has drawn an unprecedented line in the sand. In effect, the president is saying we have a year to figure out how to violate our consciences.To force American citizens to choose between violating their consciences and forgoing their healthcare is literally unconscionable.In effect, the president is saying we have a year to figure out how to violate our consciences.To force American citizens to choose between violating their consciences and forgoing their healthcare is literally unconscionable.” (Cardinal Designate Dolan, Abp of New York, President, USCCB)

Rush Limbaugh gets demonized for speaking the truth about this slut that parades herself in front of the public and smugly makes unsubstantiated claims about contraception and women’s health.  If Limbaugh’s sponsors think by pulling their ads from his show is going to make me run out and get a sleep comfort mattress, they are fooling themselves.  Perhaps they can give a mattress to Sandra Fluke since she probably has worn out her bed from all the sex she having.   Are the parents of this slut proud of her?  Maybe they are, I don’t know.  Seriously, what did she think was going to happen?  Did she think no one would question her testimony?  Did she think throngs of women would come to her defense?

I know there are going to be people, women in particular, that will defend Sandra Fluke.  They will chastise anyone and claim you are being misogynistic towards women.  They will claim that a woman has a economic disadvantage.  They will claim that this is all about woman’s health concerns.  Affordable access to healthcare. Really?  Under Obamacare, you won’t have any choice, you won’t have any healthcare freedoms. Under Obamacare’s death panels, that cystic on your ovaries might not be covered.  If the panel of government healthcare overseers determines that you, the woman, are no longer of any revenue value (taxable capability), you’ll be denied the operation you need to survive.  Obamacare might either give you a pill, or the option to end your life.  That is the reality of Obamacare.  So this whole argument of women’s reproductive rights is a farce.  Obamacare might provide you with the morning after pill, but if they determine the cost of your health is not worthy of the money spent, you will be given another alternative.  One that probably will not be to your benefit.

It doesn’t matter if her testimony was either about herself or others, what matters is her insistence that a religious college pay for contraceptive services.  What matters is Obama has said contraception must be supplied free-of-charge.  What matters is that no one is talking about the sex partner, why isn’t the sex partner helping to pay for their own contraception?  What matters is Obamacare will force you to either purchase a product or the government will penalize you.  It has nothing to do with economics, it has everything to do with religious freedom.  It has nothing to do with women’s health, it has everything to do with promiscuity.

The Blog College Conservative has weighed in with an appropriate rebuttal to Sandra, “the spokeswoman for all of Georgetown”, Fluke.  It is well worth the read!

Sandra Fluke doesn’t speak for me. Or for Georgetown.

She doesn’t speak for those of us who worked hard to be able to choose to come to a great institution with a great tradition of faith and scholarship. She certainly can’t speak for the Jesuits who dedicated their lives to God and Education with a long established set of rules. There are only ten of them, and Ms. Fluke would do well to give them a quick read.

Funny how the same side that cries “Get your rosaries off my ovaries” is the same side saying, “on second thought…please pay for me to have all the sex I want!” The people who espouse “pro-choice” “values” are the same people who say religious institutions have no right to choose.

They are struggling financially, Sandra Fluke says to pay for their contraception.  Well then, charge for the sex you are having.  That’s your solution Sandra Fluke.  Become a working girl and charge people for all the sex you are having with them.  Then you can pay for your contraception yourself.  You might even have enough money left over to pay your way through college.  Maybe even buy some new clothes and shoes.  Be an entrepreneur, a business person and provide for yourself.  It is insulting to me that this whore will tell me that I have to pay for her contraception.  So she can spread her legs to every Tom, Dick and Harry that comes along.  No one is denying her right to prostitute herself.  Just be aware it might be against the law.

My parents chose life over selfishness, and therefore….I have a say!!!

The song at the end is Matt Maher’s “Isaiah 61”

But the absurdities’ don’t end here.  Kathleen Sebelius, Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services and brain fart, tried to make the claim that a decrease in human beings will cover the cost of contraception.  WHAT???  During a House hearing Sebelius insisted that the mandate “upholds religious liberty”.  So by forcing people to pay for a product they don’t want and find morally objectionable, that’s liberty?

You have to wonder if Sebelius is either on drugs, or she thinks that you are that stupid to believe the garbage spewing out of her pie-hole.  Here’s a portion of the exchange:

During the subcommittee hearing, Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.) said that contraception provided by insurance companies to people employed by religious organizations under the future form of the rule Sebelius described would not be was not free.

“Who pays for it? There’s no such thing as a free service,” Murphy asked.

Sebelius responded that that is not the case with insurance.

“The reduction in the number of pregnancies compensates for cost of contraception,” Sebelius answered.

Murphy expressed surprise by the answer.

“So you are saying, by not having babies born, we are going to save money on health care?” Murphy asked.

Sebelius replied, “Providing contraception is a critical preventive health benefit for women and for their children.”

Murphy again sought clarification.

“Not having babies born is a critical benefit. This is absolutely amazing to me. I yield back,” he said.

Equally as disappointing are the political candidates climbing aboard the SS Condom and wag their finger of shame at Rush Limbaugh.  The ship of fools is eager to get off topic and get suckered into an issue that has no national bearing.  Speaker John “crybaby bonehead” Boehner condemns Rush Limbaugh as does Rick Santorum who called Limbaugh absurd.  IDIOTS!!  Instead of talking about Obama’s failed policies, the bad economy, the high unemployment and high gas prices, they’d rather sail off into the sea of irrelevancy.  Good luck defeating Obama in November.

It is so disappointing to see our side getting in the mud with the “democRats”.  The “democRats” have successfully placed a ring in the noses of the GOP and are leading them around like donkeys.  The democrats have kept the candidates off message by creating a false issue that takes away from other priorities.  The GOP is campaigning for Obama’s reelection.  Even Mitt Romney agrees with the individual mandate (if you thought Romney was going to repeal Obamacare, you are wrong), he even wrote a oped in USA today explaining how his version of Romneycare will work for Obamacare.  You can read it here!
