    Sort of the same way we lost years of knowledge of the human anatomy due to religious issues in the past…

    The pill is not a condom. It has actual medical uses. So insurance should cover it. If catholics don’t like it, and they don’t want government making them follow the rules, then they can give back all the govt money they get.

    Wrongo. Your healthcare benefits are YOURS, part of the pay you get for your job. The Bishops are trying to tell people how to spend THEIR healthcare dollars, and furthermore force people to follow their rules, whether they are Catholic or not. Contrary to their assertion that this is for “religious freedom,” this is precisely the opposite: forbidding people not of their religion from following their beliefs.

    Do you mean silent or pointless? Mute is silent, moot is pointless.

    It is NOT just the Roman Catholics, many fundamentalists and evangelicals also have been standing between women and their medicine, for quite some time!!

    The point is to read the Constitution and get “religion” out of government, AND get them out of medicine, for which they are NOT licensed to practice.(among other arguments)

    Baloney, Josef. The whole Sandra Fluke kerfuffle was because a Catholic univeristy did not allow a student to get birth control pills for medical reasons, and she thereby lost an ovary. The Catholics overruled her doctor, even though she was paying for her own insurance. And if you want to say she should have bought individual insurance and not gone through the school, remember that Obamacare, reintroducing the free market into health insurance, doesn’t take hold until 2014. There’s no way a student can afford individual insurance, and her ovaries would have been exempted as a pre-existing condition anyway.

    Don’t you wish they put the same effort into banning child-raping priests?

    My wife and I pay for our own contraception. That doesn’t mean I want any one, Church or Goverment telling us how to live because this is blackmail. And it’s got nothing to do with who pays for what. That’s just the ploy the Church and the Right are using this time. Next time it’ll be about somethng else. It’s all about some people who think they can tell us what we can do in bed, how we do it and who we do it with.

    Are you for real? Have you ever heard of the “office of faith based initiatives”? Simply put, it was a govt program, created by bushie jr through an executive order, that GIVES TAX DOLLARS TO RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS. Going against the first ammendment. Except for pagans for some reason.

    Hey, now that’s enough. Some of my ancestors came here to escape religious persecution in their home countries!

    You don’t get the point of this cartoon. It’s about getting contraceptives, not politics!

    “You just don’t have the right to make us pay for your_(insert whatever anyone finds immoral here)_ when it offends our religion”

    I wholeheartedly agree. I object to my tax dollars being transferred to religious organisations under the guise of “faith-based” initiatives. That should be cut from the budget.

    “On religious issues there can be little or no compromise. There is no position on which people are so immovable as their religious beliefs. There is no more powerful ally one can claim in a debate than Jesus Christ, or God, or Allah, or whatever one calls this supreme being. But like any powerful weapon, the use of God’s name on one’s behalf should be used sparingly. The religious factions that are growing throughout our land are not using their religious clout with wisdom. They are trying to force government leaders into following their position 100 percent. If you disagree with these religious groups on a particular moral issue, they complain, they threaten you with a loss of money or votes or both. I’m frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in A, B, C, and D. Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me? And I am even more angry as a legislator who must endure the threats of every religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my vote on every roll call in the Senate. I am warning them today: I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of conservatism.” ~Barry Goldwater

    Heavy B: and thanks to “W”, Fallwell’s “Liberty University” (speaking of oxymorons) gets roughly ten times as many tax dollars as Public Broadcasting! B.S. degrees REALLY stink there!

    “It’s amazing to me that you can whine about giving an institution money when that institution helps the poor, feeds the hungry, aids women in trouble, and does other good deeds with the money”

    Talking about the government that you wish would “fold like a cheap card table?”

    Funny how you complain about paying for things that offend your religion; but when someone else complains about funding your religion, they are accused of whining.

    “you have no gripe about the government funding of the killing of the unborn by Planned Parenthood”

    I have no gripe about it because government funds are not being used for abortion services. I do have a gripe about funding war and religions.Unlike contraception, Jesus actually spoke out against violence, and right-wing religious leaders (he called them “sons of hell”). I’m sure your church and your child-raping priests have a different opinion, and that’s exactly why I don’t want to fund you with my tax dollars.

    And so as we end our journey we have Donald and the Birthers still singiing the same old song, the Million Moms (all 6 of them) worried about their kids learning about reality from a fantasy comic, and the conehead dictating to us about our sex lives. These are the people calling for change -right. WAY RIGHT!

    “whenever someone calls you out on your abortionist views.”Sorry, you’re the one that doesn’t understand truth or staying on target. What does abortion have to do with contraception?

    Did the people who did your background checks ever look at your rantings on these forums? I need to bring them to the attention of the appropriate people.

    Your comments on the military are the only good thing you’ve said.

    “The Church has rooted out the molestors, removed them”I think you mean “moved them”.http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_14886101?source=pkgAlso, you said somthing along the lines of “use the pill, go to hell”. Where in the bible does it mention birth control?
