Manifestly, you two ladies just put your heads together, and defended lies. A case in point

Maybe not prove one; but how about DIS-proving a god?

Isn't that a prejudiced example?

First that is a hypothetical. Furthermore, not too likely. In Logic you are creating and beating a "straw man."

Courts listening to Catholic hospitals that refuse contraception side of Obamacare; DU crosslisting.

Obamacare allows and funds, contraception and abortion. But now various institutions - primarily Catholic - are asking to be exempt from this side of Obamacare. Because they don't believe in contraception and abortion; their religion is (allegedly) against birth control.

It's a major challenge to Women's Rights, and to Obamacare. A challenge which is even now, being worked out in the courts.

The courts recently, seem to be asking the Obama administration for some action toward a policy on this.

It's a good time for feedback from the public, on this topic.

Here's the crosslisting to the discussion on this, and the topic of Religious Freedom, on Democratic Underground:

Inquiry Set for Death in Catholic Ireland, after Abortion Was Denied

Many moderate conservatives allow abortion in some cases. For example, when it is "necessary to save the life of the mother." But many elements of the Catholic Church however, do not make even that exception; they say abortion is always wrong. So that? Now and then a pregnant mother dies. When her pregnancy endangers her life - but her Catholic doctors will not abort the baby.

This apparently recently happened to an Indian woman, in still very-Catholic Ireland.

Here's a link to the recent NY Times article:

She's that dumb/straight/repressed - and therefore, exhibiting Freudian slips at every step

Did you catch her "I have two horses in every port" remark a few weeks ago?

The problem with really, really, REALLY straight, Victorian, repressed people, said Freud? Is that their respressed sexuality, being a major urge, eventually surfaces; in some kind of unconscious and unnatural way. In this case? As Freudian slips, unconscious double-entendres.

But if that is what she's like ... then what about HIM? Who knows what kind of Freudian slips/disasters we might see, in a Romney presidency.

In Santorum? We see what Jesus warned about: a "false prophet"; a religious "hypocrite."

For example?

Ricky often claims to follow the Catholic Church, and with it, to oppose "abortion." In fact, that's one of his core positions and issues.

Yet, though allegedly he and his wife oppose abortion? Santorum's wife Karen herself, as recently reported in the Daily Mail, lived with an abortion doctor, for many, many years.

Then more recently? His wife recently assured us women have nothing to fear from Ricky in the matter of contraception.

So what should real Christians and Catholics say or think, about Rick Santorum and his alleged faith?

We should say this: Jesus warned us that the religious conservatives of his own time - the Pharisees - were "hypocrites." And indeed they are. To this very day.

Ricky? Claims to be Catholic ... but the Church opposes contraception. Then? He opposes ABORTION

Lots and lots of problems with this statement by yet another clueless, hypocritical Republican wifey.

But among others:

1) The Church opposes contraception; is Rick breaking with the church?

2) Ricky often opposes at least "abortion." In fact, that's one of his core positions and issues. Abortion is a form of contraception.

3) Though on the face of things the two oppose abortion? Karen herself, as recently reported in the Daily Mail, lived with an abortion doctor, for many, many years.

4) Jesus warned us that the religious conservatives of his own time - the Pharisees - were "hypocrites." And indeed they are.
