Rotten to the core

Looking at the underbelly of the political ideology that approved the HHS mandate and you see its utter rottenness. Great post here at What Does the Research Really Say? It's long but is a good primer on what the Church is dealing with. A bit:

To understand the commitment of the Obama administration to the Sexual Left’s agenda, consider the appointment of Chai Feldblum, an openly lesbian woman, as a Commissioner Of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In a 2006 article entitled “Moral Conflict andLiberty: Gay Rights and Religion,” she wrote: ”Protecting one groups’ identity liberty may at times, require that we burden others’ belief liberty…But in dealing with this conflict, I believe it is essential that we not privilege moral beliefs that are religiously based over other sincerely held core, moral beliefs. Laws passed pursuant to public policies may burden the belief liberty of those who adhere to either religious or secular beliefs.”[8] In the article she acknowledges that the demands of GLBTQ persons will necessarily impinge on freedom of religion, but it is clear from the examples she presents that, except in very narrow areas, she believes that in a conflict between gay rights and freedom of religion, freedom of religion should lose. This kind of thinking clearly undergirds the Obama administration’s “accommodation” on the health care mandate. (My emphasis)
