To those that think free birth control is a “right”

This issue isn’t going away.  Eden Foods is now in the battle.  They also wish to not be forced to have to pay for birth control. 

It amazes me how many people are calling for a boycott.

Why?

Because they don’t want to be forced to partake in a sin?  Because they don’t feel they should have to give up their religious freedom?

Or because society has become so damn selfish that they are demanding free things for perceived rights?

These people are claiming birth control is a woman’s right.  And they’re correct in that.  No one is out there trying to stop women from having access to it.  They’re only trying to not be forced to pay for it.

Let me put it in perspective:

I have the right to own guns.  So, if you are demanding that Hobby Lobby and Eden Food provide access to free birth control, then you must also agree that I should have access to free guns.

If you believe women should have the right to dictate who pays for their birth control, then you should agree that I should have the right to dictate who pays for my guns.

So, if you don’t want to be a hypocrite, message me and I’ll send you a link to my PayPal account.

Why is it OK to hate Christians?

So many groups are protected from hate.  Or at least those full of hate for them are condemned. 

If you attack blacks or show you hate them, you are condemned. 

If you attack gays or show you hate them, you are condemned. 

If you attack women or show you hate them, you are condemned.

All rightfully so.

But if you attack or show you hate Christians, you get applauded.

Why?

Sure, some Christians are anything but.  Is that really a reason to hate Christians as a whole?  We cannot hate all blacks because of some gang-bangers.  If you do, you are a hateful person.

Yet, that’s what happens to Christians on a regular basis.

Look at Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson.  All he said was homosexuality was a sin, and everyone was calling for his head on a platter. 

But there’s some really strange stuff behind that, too. 

First, if you are a Christian, you cannot dispute what he said.  It is a sin.  Second, if you are not a Christian or do not believe in God, then you do not believe there is any sin, therefore what he said would have been meaningless.

Also, he didn’t just say it about homosexuality.  He said it about gamblers, adulterers, drunkards, terrorists, etc.  He listed quite a few groups of people.  Why was it, folks only got upset about the gays?  We didn’t hear a peep from the swinger community, even though he named adulterers.  We didn’t hear a word from the folks that frequent Vegas for gambling, even though they were also named.  Why was it just the homosexual comment that got him in trouble?

Was is just an excuse to hate him?

Why was our President allowed to spew hatred towards Christians with his “cling to their guns and bibles” comment?  I mean, these are two Constitutionally guaranteed rights we’re talking about here.  Not only was it accepted, it was applauded! 

Could you imagine the uproar if someone said something similar about another group?

“The gays will cling to their lube and dildos.”

or

“The blacks will cling to their Colt45 and saggy pants.”

“Women will cling to their make-up and perfumes.”

“Mexicans will cling to their sombreros and donkeys.”

All would have caused an outrage.  But not when our own President says it about Christians.

It’s perfectly acceptable to call Christians ignorant because they believe in a higher being.  Even though it has yet to be disproven that a higher being could exist.  But it’s ok to belive in a big bang that hasn’t been proven, or that life spontaneously occurred, though it has never been proven to be a possibility, let alone even actually happen.

It’s acceptable to claim Christians all hate.  Even though it is clearly not the case.

It’s acceptable to ignore the good Christianity has done.  Children’s hospitals, homeless shelters, food kitchens, women’s shelters.  All things done on a massively successful scale by Christians.

It’s ok to blame wars on Christians even though that’s far from the truth.  Sure, some wars were waged by Christians.  Other wars were waged by atheists.  All were waged by people who perverted the beliefs of their group for personal gain.  That will happen regardless of religion or not. 

Not only has it become acceptable to attack Christianity falsely, it’s almost encouraged.  We see it everywhere.  Go read an article about Duck Dynasty and look at the hatred that spews from those that don’t agree with them. 

All for simply having a different view. 

Why is it acceptable in this instance, but not others?

Not My Boss’s Business Act

Wow.  Just wow.  The democrats just don’t get it.  They think they are the supreme rulers of this nations, and the supreme rulers of free thought.

Also, again, no one is saying women can’t have birth control.  Just that you can’t force someone to give up their beleifs.  It’s not discrimination.  What IS discrimination is saying if you have religious beleifs, you either have to give them up or not be allowed to own a business.  THAT is discrimination, folks, and that is exactly what the democrats are trying to do. 

They are now trying to pass a law that would require businesses provide contraceptives.  Um… didn’t the Supreme Court just strike such a law down?

This is the waste they create.  The waste of time they focus on.  Iraq is falling, the border is a mess, the economy is still a mess, unemployment still high, and THIS is what they choose to focus on?

Maybe the republicans should make a deal.  They’ll vote for this bill, provided abortions be outlawed since all contraceptives would be provided free of charge.  Because then, there would be no need for abortion.

But you’ll never see that happening.  Why?

Because the democrats feel folks should be able to do whatever they want and have no responsibility for their actions.  They think everyone else should pay for it.  And this is where the insanity from these folks come from.  They want that, but they also want to tell you what you can and can’t do in other aspects (large soda ban, anyone?)

Which is why it is indeed your boss’s business.  If they are the ones paying out the bulk of the insurance premiums (and face it, check your paystubs, you boss certainly is the one paying for it), it most certainly IS their business.  Anytime you have to pay for something, you have a right to know what it’s for and the right (guaranteed by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights) to NOT have to pay for something that is against your religion. 

Why is it, that only a certain group of people feel their rights always outweigh the rights of others?  I have a right to keep and bear arms.  I do NOT however, have the right to demand that others pay for those arms, nor do I have the right to use that right to end someone’s life who is not threatening mine or my family’s.

This is why we’re in a heap of trouble, folks.  When we start thinking that our perceived rights are more important than someone else’s actual rights.  This is also why I feel libertarianism is the only political ideology that makes actual sense.  The basis is, you can do what you want, as long as it doesn’t affect someone else’s rights.  By demanding someone give up their religious freedom so you can have “free” birth control, is well, just plain arrogant, selfish and damn childish.

Hobby Lobby Ruling

There is so much misinformation out there regarding this ruling.  To be honest, I’m not even sure it’s misinformation but rather it’s purposeful.  It’s a method to attack people with religious affiliations.  Think about it.  Regligion can be openly attacked.  No other group can be attacked the way those of faith can. 

But onto the ruling.  No, Hobby Lobby is not controlling women.  This is nothing more than a lie.  It’s as simple as that.  They are not discriminating, they are not firing women on birth control. 

In fact, they actually DO cover most birth control!  They cover 16 out of 20 birth control methods mandated by Obamacare.  The only four they don’t are what are considered ending life contraceptives.  In other words, they are technically abortions. 

This fight wasn’t about controlling women, it wasn’t about birth control.  It was about freedom.  The freedom to be able to own a company and not be forced to abandon other beliefs. 

Some say this will snowball and employers will be able to control us.  No, it just means we can’t control them and their beliefs.  Would it be right for me to go into a muslim business and demand they serve me bacon?  No, it wouldn’t.  And I certainly wouldn’t be so bigoted as to demand they do.  Which is what folks who are upset at Hobby Lobby are doing.  They are forcing THEIR beliefs on Hobby Lobby.  How is it any different than what they claim Hobby Lobby is doing (even though that’s not what is happening at all)?

We are guaranteed a first amendment right to freedom of religion. 

Alway have, and as long as I live and breath, we always will. 

I just wonder why the left is so upset at this ruling?  Why are they upset that the court ruled in favor of freedom of religion?  (By the way, the ruling was in favor of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, that was signed into law by lefty hero Bill Clinton). 

When we demand that others change to accomodate us, especially their beliefs, we become bigots.  And that’s exactly what has happened in this case.  Those who are upset at the ruling or upset at the family (yes, family, Hobby Lobby is a privately owned business) for exercising their 1st Amendment rights, are indeed bigots. 

If you want to play the slippery slope card, then what if the court ruled against Hobby Lobby?  You would not be free to exercise YOUR beliefs.  No blogs, no opinion, forced to do things you feel are wrong. 

This isn’t a defeat for birth control (remember, Hobby Lobby still covers 16 types of birth control).  It’s not a win for religious fundamentalists.

It’s a win for freedom.
