no, not that - i was referring to the fact that i cited back to the start of this thread where you began the subtext of ignoring punctuation (i.e. "Land of the 'free'")
granted the traditional pot kettle black would have been shorter but i rarely go with the shortest route in a discussion
i never thought you were an america basher - i assumed you were a libertarian - please correct me if i'm wrong - and under that assumption i was pointing you to libertarian paradise - what more could a place offer a libertarian that what rawanda has today?What, me worry?

WOW you misread that one.
I tend to consider myself pretty conservative, but like to think I am open minded enough to accept view points from both sides. When the punches are being thrown...I typically side with the conservatives.
Sorry I got so snarky. I wish we could bring back the ignore thread option. I really do HATE talking politics or religion online, but it has been a slow topic day on here and I find myself sucked into the political type discussions."Yeah You're right man...that is enough."

Liberal does not equal Libertarian.Every time you play a hand of you poker you wanna run through a mental check list. Head Position Hand Position Neck Position Breathing Posture. More than 25 items. It's a lot. And that why I've come up with a handy mnemonic device. Just one word: HPHPNPBPECMSPAMDCPAFTSTTL. It's easy.

No matter -- I hear what you're saying. I guess my response is that contraception has been long established as beneficial to women's health and is subject to at least the same coverage as, say, Viagra.
Seriously, though -- I believe if a church is going to operate as a business in the public realm, they have to adhere to all the same business rules as other businesses. Whatever health care coverage mandates are required of other businesses, it's fair to require those of church businesses. I agree that mandates on church businesses should not be more onerous than on other businesses, but they should be at least equivalent. This is especially true considering that many people employed by churches are not of the same faith as the church employer, and thus are not even subject to inside church law as it stands. I also don't believe such requirements constitute an inhibition of faith since the church is operating their business in the public realm and not as part of the private practice of religious faith.
In summary, I believe American law should supersede church law in this case.But tonight, I say we must move forward, not backward; upward, not forward; and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!
