The Obama Administrations Assault on the First Amendment (i.e. The “Catholic birth control issue”)


By now the President has made an “accommodation” on his Birth Control Rule. As I see it the problem with this “accommodation” is that it is fundamentally backwards sdrawkcab. According to the First Amendment (remember that one about freedom of speech and religion?) the government has no business accommodating any church, they are to stay out of the church and our individual right to be left alone in it however we choose .

The President has at least three choices in this matter:

  • Dig in and attempt to enforce the mandate and run afoul of the First Amendment and many citizens outrage (Catholic and otherwise) .
  • Shift the bouncing ball to the Commerce clause and force the insurance industry to not only provide specific and particular products, but also to force them into giving these products away free. This amounts to a nationalization of that industry in a Fascist manner by making the President CEO not only of a company but an entire segment of an industry.
  • Rescind totally and completely the so called “accommodation on Birth Control Rule”. This is the proper and Constitutional choice and he should be held to this choice rigorously by an outraged electorate.
