I guess the media had more important things to tell us. Why did they make such a big deal about some women walking out of the hearing Thursday, but not a word about this?
About the walkout: Why does it matter that there were no women slated to testify? Gone With the Wind starred no left-handed, lesbian Pygmies, but it is still a good movie, right?
The House Hearing was intended for religious leaders to testify about religious freedom and the effect the new health care laws would have on it. A majority of religious leaders are men. That is why there were no women present.
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. – 1 Corinthians 14:34
Sorry ladies. Rules is rules.
These men were there because they object to the government mandating them to provide and pay for products and services they find offensive and sinful. Most churches that have women leaders aren’t the ones that object to abortions, and pre/extramarital, and homo sex. Those churches probably have no problem with this kind of government overreach.
You shouldn’t have left, Speaker Pelosi. You missed your chance to tell the oppressive, Bible-thumping, chauvinistic males how much you would love sending them to jail.
How far away are we from this? When all the religious leaders with unorthodox loyalties to the Bible, Torah, Quran, etc are imprisoned for thought-crimes; we’ll have to use computer simulated Pastors, Priests, and Rabbis.
The confession booth will no longer be private of course. The NSA will be listening to your prayers to make sure you’re not thinking about pricking holes in your condoms, or not taking your birth control pills. Can’t have unauthorized procreation because children will contribute to overpopulation and global-warming.
This isn’t about contraceptives or abortions. This isn’t about churches or freedom of religion. This is only about the Government having complete control over every minute aspect of your life and body.
Those responsible for doing this are obligated to tell you what they are doing to you. That is why they wrote their plans in Stone:
1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature. (sic)
You may not be religious and not care about this controversy. If we lose this battle; you will lose too.
It’s like how they say to do when you first walk into a prison: Find the biggest, meanest, toughest man there, walk up to him and knock him out in front of everybody. If you do this; no one else in the jail will dare to bother you.
To the Government; the church is that man who must be knocked out and made an example of. If they can gain this kind of power over the church; the rest of us will fall like dominoes.
