And what is the motive here of the current administration, I wonder?  To provide "free" love and the illusion of utopia   in exchange for support or vote, to enhance and gain power or dominion over mankind 

or

Mayby, it is a sincere exempt to provide wealth, health and happiness 

Go figure!

Your church thinks contraception is wrong? Too bad. The institutions it has established will be required to buy contraception.
But because Obama is a patient and gracious ruler, those institutions will get a whole extra year to shed their core beliefs before they have to comply with his edict.
Human lives? Matters of faith? What God wants of us?
Bah! Get real. There's an election to win and a feminist- driven, abortion- worshiping left whose votes are essential.
The only faith that matters here is the hard left's belief in Obama's willingness to use -- and, if necessary, abuse -- his power to advance its goals.
Some of the things his imperial decree tells Americans really come as no great surprise. They are merely inevitable outgrowths of a brand of "health care reform" that is wrong for America in its concept and well on its way to being disastrous for America in its execution:
• Private businesses no longer manage their own affairs -- not even their relationships with their own employees.
• What were once private health insurance companies are now nothing more than government agencies. When it comes to products, coverage and cost, federal bureaucrats call the shots.
• Private individuals -- barring the action of some court that still recognizes the Constitution as the supreme law of the land and the supreme limiter of government power over the individual -- are subservient to government, and government will determine what sort of medical care they will receive, if any.
And churches? Institutions based on a belief in a power higher than government and on a moral code that aims at pleasing God rather than man? Institutions that, under the Constitution, are afforded a specific protection from government interference?
They're just anachronisms, like that very same Constitution. They stand in the way of progress. Worse, they have the temerity to resist what Obama -- a man who once said he would not want his daughters "punished with a baby" -- cynically defines as "efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams."
Over the last 39 years, since the Supreme Court went prospecting far outside the Constitution to find a right to abortion on demand, more than 50 million unborn American babies have been punished with death. Daughters and sons, they were brutally denied the right to live, to be free and to fulfill their dreams.
The court, making it up as it went along, based that decision on ephemeral "emanations" and "penumbras."
Constitutionally, what Obama is doing is worse. He is defying the unambiguous words of the First Amendment, which denies the federal government power over religious expression.
Obama's contraception requirement puts an abrupt end to the freedom of churches to operate their institutions according to the tenets of their faith.
Americans, whether they favor or oppose abortion, cannot mutely accept the continued dismantling of the Constitution by a man whose oath was to preserve, protect and defend it.

The Obama administration plans to announce today that it will require all employers to comply with a new mandate in the health law providing free contraception in any health insurance they provide to women without a co-pay. Religious employers that don’t currently offer insurance that covers contraception due to moral objections must also comply with the law but have a one-year delay before they must implement the mandate, according to the
Religious institutions that do provide contraception, such as Catholic universities and hospitals, must start offering free coverage when the new rule takes effect,

You really just heard this? as far as "plans to announce today" this was available to read in his first draft of the proposed Obamacare before it was forced through congress. You may know also that Mitt Romney has the same healthcare program in N.H. with the same mandate, he claims to be prolife but had when seeking the office of governor pledged to " never limit a womans right to choose, or limit a teens right, even if said teens parents disagreed they would be allowed to seek a judges approval to supercede the parents wishes."

The Affordable Care Act did many good things, primarily making health insurance affordable and available to those who might not otherwise be able to purchase it. However, it also resulted in some issues that weren’t so beneficial, and the worst of those came to light Jan. 20. 2012

The Department of Health and Human Services issued a ruling that, under the Affordable Care Act, virtually all employers must offer sterilization and contraceptive services free of charge in their employees’ health insurance plans by Aug. 1, 2013. The ruling would also cover abortifacients, or drugs that induce abortion.
Houses of worship, such as churches, synagogues and mosques, would still be exempt, but schools, hospitals and social service organizations affiliated with religious institutions would no longer be exempt.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated that the rule “will have no impact” on existing conscience protections for health care providers.

Why is this ruling so evil?[list]
[*][color=red][font=Symbol]· [/font][/color][color=red]This ruling wrong, it is dangerous to our society and amounts to an out-and-out attack on the Catholic religion. [/color]
[*][color=red][font=Symbol]· [/font][/color][color=red]Catholic hospitals and universities would be forced to offer services to their employees for free that directly contradict the teachings and beliefs of the Catholic faith.[/color]
[*][color=red][font=Symbol]· [/font][/color][color=red]Providing these services would be tantamount to asking Catholic institutions to be complicit in the prevention of life or in the possible murder of a human being, albeit one still in the mother’s womb. That is the equivalent of asking Catholic institutions to renounce their religious beliefs.[/color]
[/list]

For Catholics and the Catholic Church, this is the line drawn in the sand

This is just one step away from mandating abortion to be included. This is so diabolical.

Among other things, I'm convinced this is one more tactic to get more folks into a situation in which they will need to turn to the government for health "care"...this will also include all of those that receive care from Catholic/religious health care institutions. Edited by DMcB

Did anyone else read this?

Speaking to about 3,000 people at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, Obama emphasized the importance of his Christian beliefs in his politics and personal life, arguing that his efforts to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans, promote health insurance reform, help families with college tuition and send troops to prevent human rights abuses in Uganda were grounded in his faith.

“I think to myself, if I’m willing to give something up as somebody who’s been extraordinarily blessed, and give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I actually think that’s going to make economic sense,” Obama told the audience. “But for me, as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’s teaching that ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.’ ”

Obama’s remarks injected religion, a politically treacherous issue for him and for Republican front-runner Mitt Romney, into the center of the presidential race. His willingness to do so suggested a new confidence in his evolving reelection message that restoring fairness to the American economy is crucial to its long-term success.

Mr. Obama attempted to quote Scripture to serve his own purposes. In doing so, he intentionally distorted that Scripture.

Jesus warned against such false teachers. “For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do to be seen by men.” (Matthew 23:4-5)



What gall, to call upon the words of Jesus Christ to justify his theft and inciting of class warfare as if he were some how a righteous person while at the same time supporting the slaughter of untold millions of unborn human beings that God himself says are his children, his creations, “..I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb “.

Every media outlet continues to speak of the “birth control mandate” of the federal government. That is the least of my concerns. The mandate orders all employers to provide free coverage of the “do-it-yourself-in-the-comfort-of-your-home” chemical abortions, and sterilization. The “accommodation” announced by the Obama administration changes nothing.

Now the insurance companies have been ordered to provide “free” coverage. The Catholic dioceses of New York (and several other states) became self-insured in 2003, precisely to avoid the same type of mandate imposed by the state government. The diocese is the insurance company. Private employers are also mandated to provide this coverage. What if the owner of the company is morally opposed to these practices? How bizarre. A company does not have to provide dental or vision coverage, but must provide chemical abortions.

“Free” — really? These things will be a loving gift of the pharmaceutical companies?

It is easy to mock the Catholic Church because we believe sexual activity is sacred and not recreational. The mandate issue is much more serious and far-reaching.

The state of Washington has just introduced a bill that if you offer your employees maternity coverage you must offer your employees abortion coverage as well....
