August 22, 2014: The Obama administration issued a revised version of the HHS mandate. Under the guise of “filling out forms”, the new rules require people of faith to violate their religious beliefs or face fines of as much as $36,500 per year, per employee.
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, explained the new rules like this:
“Let’s use a simple example. The government comes up with a plan to arbitrarily imprison children between 2 and 4 years old, and imposes on businesses the obligation to inform them of such children among the families of their employees.
“Any employer with a conscience is going to say, ‘I want nothing to do with this. If you’re going to imprison these children, you’re going to have to find them yourself. I won’t be sending you any information.’
“We want a full exemption from this mandate, so that we have nothing to do with this scheme. … Our religion requires no less.”
Just a thought from CtH …
Yesterday, one of my Facebook friends reported hearing a young man say there’s no reason to give a crap if a cop gets shot. “That’s what they signed up for.” I’m guessing he votes Democrat, so it just crossed my mind today that the same could be said of women who accept jobs with Christian non-profits and family-owned companies. There’s no reason to give a crap if they have to pay for their immoral practices out of their own pockets. “That’s what they signed up for.”
