While I have my own personal disputes with Obamacare, I believe it is imperative to keep religion out of government matters ( “Administration ignores our First Amendment rights, Oct. 25).
I agree that some legislation may be an imposition on personal religion but it is very hypocritical to justify your reasoning based on your own religious bias: I shouldn’t impose on your religion; but you can impose your religion on me?
Religion in government is stone age, borderline un-American: it is the reason we left England. Besides, what is so sacrilege about decreasing the number of unwanted children with very little quality of life?
Did you know Romney has in the past rallied for pro-choice before he took the Republican candidacy?
And you want to talk about Constitutional liberties? Let’s talk gay marriage: it is unconstitutional for the majority party (heterosexuals) to dictate the minority party (homosexuals) and that’s exactly what Proposition 8 did by voters in California, what this country continues to do.
There is your clear violation of Constitutional integrity. No one is exempt from violating the Consitution. We all do with our own beliefs.
A truly conscious voter would look into how public figures voted when they were still on the state level. I think the most important argument here is that when Romney was governor of Massachusetts, he sought to bring healthcare legislation to the state that is almost unrecognizable from Obamacare.
So if you’re standing by your religious agenda, know this: “Romneycare” meant impositions of the same birth control requirements and the same fines for those who did not purchase the newly-legislated healthcare as current Obamacare, which by your argument means the same violation of First Amendement rights.
And if you have any idea what Romney did during his career with Bain Capital, you would question his conscience.
