Now we know why the Teahaddists were scared of a Sharia Law being forced upon the American people. The Totalitarian Conservative Christians were planning on forcing their silly religious precepts and Dominionist dogmas upon all of us as soon as they got the power.
The Republican Scum in the Federal Government are trying to force legislation through to establish Christian Fascist Religious control upon all Americas using Healthcare as their vehicle of conversion. Republican fanatic Roy Blunt proposed a "Religious Freedom" Rider onto a Transportation bill in the Senate.
Of course, the rider has nothing to do with a Transportation Bill but, Republicans are shameless in pushing their bigoted Totalitarian Control onto America. The amendment contains the following language:
While PPACA provides an exemption for some religious groups that object to participation in Government health programs generally, it does not allow purchasers, plan sponsors, and other stakeholders with religious or moral objections to specific items or services to decline providing or obtaining coverage of such items or services, or allow health care providers with such objections to decline to provide them.So, if your employer is a right-winger who, ipso facto doesn't like women, and he "morally objects" to pap smears; Boom it's no longer covered for you. Roy Blunt and the 300 Republican bureaucrats in DC believe that your employer should be able to tell you, the American citizen what kind of healthcare you receive, based on his feelings...
Mitch McConnell braved the terrible Liberal Media on Sunday to tell CBS host Bob Schieffer, "This issue will not go away until the administration simply backs down." Bob Scieffer wanted to know if McConnell supported Blunt's Rider to allow any employer the "Right" to deny any coverage because of their moral feelings. McConnell of course replied, “Yeah,” McConnell admitted. “Of course, I’d be happy to support it and intend to support it."
So in Mitch McConnell's America if you work for a Christian Scientist who doesn't believe in blood transfusions then tough shit dude he can deny covering it. If you're working for a Scientologist who believes Lithium and any other drug designed to treat depression or psychotic mental problems are not effective because of his "serious moral concerns" boom you just lost healthcare coverage for those drugs.
President Obama's defense of woman's rights to healthcare and his incredibly crafty manuever is exposing us to the True Horror of Conservatism. The Right has fully embraced Totalitarianism and Religious Dictatorship.
We are in the age of Dominionism. Wherein the Totalitarian Right and their zealous Christian Fascists have decided to regain control of the Government through Terrorism and Religion.
Conservatives assassinate Doctors, Republicans push through legislation to deny Americans medical care, Totalitarian Right-Wingers redefine rape to punish victims and abolish basic human rights.
It's because the Right sees their control slipping. As soon as this Nation starts treating American as individuals and provides them Positive Liberties and Positive Rights the Totalitarian Republicans will be in danger of losing their power and ability to defend the 1% who use these social issues to divide and conquer.
