ashwaken, the blog you quoted is false. The Georgia law from 1999 does not require self-insured entities like the Catholic church to offer contraceptive coverage. If you read further on that blog, though the blogger misses the point too, Georgia never could force regulations on self-insured entities because only Federal law can regulate them. That's the difference, because now Obama's HHS is mandating that self-insured entities cover contraceptives. Thus the opposition from the Catholic church now.
@Perla, keep the "sob" stories coming! You're doing a great job and the writing is fantastic. It's also serving a purpose of bringing the bigots out into full sunlight. Thank you!
@Eastridge, it's very telling that you're blaming your fear of no SS check on undocumented immigrants. SS is not failing due to them, but in spite of them. SS has a $20 Billion slush fund from immigrants whose taxes are withheld, but will never see. So don't worry, you can continue to milk yourself at the teat of government welfare with no fear that undocumented immigrants will get the money instead.
Thank you Rolando. It's pretty obvious you support the laws you like and flaunt the ones you don't. Kind of like the "illegals" you so despise.
@Wilder, and like the judge who is so clearly wrong in your mind regarding Arpaio, you can't just simply disagree with the Catholic's motives for supporting illegals. A simple Google shows dozens of statements from leaders outlining their biblical reasons for doing so. But in your mind, it has to be an ulterior evil motive. Yes, I do believe that is how conspiracists think. As Wiki summarizes: "they do so in an appealingly simple way, by dividing the world sharply between the forces of light and the forces of darkness. They trace all evil back to a single source, the conspirators and their agents." But lucky for you they haven't banned tin foil hats (yet).
@Wilder, yes I imagined that you would agree with judges only when they agree with you. There is no appeal in this case. Arpaio has cost his county millions in wrongful detentions (violating the 4th Amendment), yet now we have all these Arpaio wannabes that are going to do the same in GA, AL and SC. There are dozens of local governments trying to get out from under Obama's ICE. But I guess this is the one rare case where you agree with Obama's abuse of power via ICE.
@Wilder, you must have missed this in my head: "A federal court judge ruled that the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office violated the 4th Amendment in stopping and arresting the Moras, and Thursday, the two received [$200k] compensation." http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/dpp/money/county-settles-with-wrongful-arrest-victims-7-7-2011
@Rolanda, the girl in the article is eligible to return to the US anytime, because she is and will always be a citizen, regardless of how a few would like to see the Constitution "re-interpreted". There seems to be a lot of that going around. Damn inconvenient Constitution.
@Eastridge, yes I know what you said. As I understand it, you don't like some Americans, they are not as deserving as you, you don't care about their misfortunes, and the only difference between you and the Americans you don't like is their skin color. What you are saying is obvious.
@Wilder, I don't care about Jesus in Spaghetti. The Catholic church is very clearly on the side of immigrants. So are the Baptists. What I find interesting is your assertion that "pedophiles" and "hordes of illegals" and "millions of fraudulently obtained US dollars" are somehow linked. I'd be delighted to hear more about this conspiracy.
