President Obama announced his “accommodation” for religious employers. He now says religious medical facilities, schools, and charities are still required to provide health insurance policies that include contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients but that health insurance companies will pick up the cost of those services.
The guy just doesn’t get it. It’s not the money; it’s not the contraception; it’s the Constitution! Barack Obama actually thinks he is in within his rights to force religious employers to help their employees engage in activities that violate that employers’ faith doctrines. For Pete’s sake, does the man understand the concept of the “free exercise” of anything?
