I made a joke about this the other day, that it would take something as full of shit as Fox to have headlines like “Does Obama hate religious freedom?”
They do this in order to introduce a ridiculous idea as if it has merit.
Here’s the ACTUAL NAME OF A HEARING on schedule for tomorrow.
The full committee will hold a hearing entitled, “Lines Crossed: Separation of Church and State. Has the Obama Administration Trampled on Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Conscience?” on Thursday, February 16th at 9:30am in 2154 Rayburn House Office Building.The hearing will be streamed live here.
This is the same crew that came out, almost to the man, against the “Ground Zero” Mosque. They now claim allowing the Pope to dictate employer’s medical policy is considered “religious freedom”.
And I’m sorry, but there’s no way someone can bring up a “both sides are bad” argument when *this* is actually happening.
This is being run by Darrell Issa, who is along with most of the current Republican leadership, a poster boy for blatant douchebaggery.
None of the religious groups supportive of the Obama administration will be heard from. […]
Eight out of nine of Issa’s witnesses are Orthodox Christian, Catholic, and evangelical, and represent Christian institutions, one of which, Belmont Abbey College, has sued HHS over the contraception requirement.
