When I was 15 years old, Protestants told one another, “If John F. Kennedy is elected, the Vatican will run government.”
Kennedy got elected, and 42 years later, with the aid and assistance of Protestants, what I thought was a canard actually came true!
Your article, “Religious Leaders Blast Federal Health Care Mandates” with comments from “religious leaders” is sad.
Not one woman, by the way.
Such worthless drivel as “an unprecedented act of tyranny” when referencing duly enacted laws in the U.S. in sophomoric.
It is not the role of government to write into law whatever religious groups dictate. If it were, polygamy and human sacrifice could be protected.
Our First Amendment begins “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion.” Thus, religious beliefs may inform a law but cannot ordain it. If they did, we would be no better that Iran.
