(Did I see this on here or elsewhere?)

All you have to do is burn a little incense at a statue of the Emperor and acknowledge him as a god. You don't have to mean it and it's such a small gesture. What's the harm?

So, Obama's argument here is that the "accommodation" offered to the Sisters is not a violation of their religious freedoms since all they have to do is sign a form that will exempt them from providing  abortifacients and abortions through their insurance plan. The Sisters however are forced to find an insurer "who will cover sterilization, contraceptive and abortion-inducing drugs and devices, and will provide related counseling and education to promote those things", the signed form triggering the start of that coverage.

In essence, Obamacare forces these nuns to shop for insurance coverage that covers what they consider as mortal sin, and become a middle man for that sin.

Why would nuns even need abortions or birth control? The glare is usually enough to prevent impure thoughts.

That's as stupid as requiring men's insurance to cover maternity and mammograms.

Oh. Wait ....
