N.Y. Catholics Groups Win Court Bar to Contraception Mandate

U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan in Brooklyn today barred the government from enforcing the mandate against Catholic Health Care System, Catholic Health Services of Long Island, Cardinal Spellman High School and Monsignor Farrell High School.

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York and the health and educational groups challenged the mandate on religious freedom grounds. After the U.S. issued a rule exempting the archdiocese, schools and health-care affiliates were still subject to the law, which takes effect Jan. 1.

The groups “have demonstrated that the mandate, despite accommodation, compels them to perform acts that are contrary to their religion,” Cogan wrote. “And there can be no doubt that the coercive pressure here is substantial.”

House of cards is beginning to fall. Here comes the "EXECUTIVE ORDERS"!!!!

Hopefully, the tide is beginning to turn. I think more and more people are opening their eyes.

So with so many unconstitutional parts it makes me wonder how Roberts could have voted to pass the Obummer thing in the first place.  Lets explore the possibility of Obummer asking the NSA to send him a file on roberts and the file had embarrasing things in it and so  Roberts had a change of heart on the bill.

Roberts wimped out -- the reason does not matter.

What he did was constitutionally wrong but his colleagues did nothing about it.

Roberts rewrote the law, took out the word mandate and put in tax.

Then told us too bad and shoved it down our throat while he knew he and his family were exempt from this horrific monster.

Send Roberts a thank you for taking down this once great republic while we are stuck paying him in perpetuity until he drops dead or resigns.

We must read the Constitution and enforce it! It is the supreme law of the land.   All executives, legislators, judges (thus everyone who reports to them top down (including states) are bound by Article 6.    All legislators and judges top down are bound by their oath and duty to “…support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic... bear true faith and allegiance... take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion...faithfully discharge the duties of the office.” (Wikipedia 2nd oath)

There is nothing negotiable about it!    Either follow the supreme law by the letter of it or face sedition & treason charges.   Any sworn law officer or local judge is so bound.    So is Holder, and obstructing enforcement is sedition!   FORCE THE ISSUE LOCALLY & STATE - SAVE THE CONSTITUTION FROM TRAITORS!

pahrumper......interesting point made about Roberts.....especially if you extend your 'exploring' to include some articles that surfaced when SCOTUS agreed to hear the ACA case....those articles referenced with documentation re: 2 girls Roberts illegally adopted from Ireland.

Now if that "ruling" stands good for Catholics, then it also becomes law for any other religion or person who does not believe in contraception. If WE THE PEOPLE allow that COMMIE in the White House to over-rule this court order then we deserve to live under his COMMUNIST Dictatorship!

Thank you, Jesus, for helping us!!

Way to go Roman Catholic Archdiocese of NY!!!

I have not heard this on the news yet.

I must listen to FOX tonight and see if they carry this information.

This is beyond ridiculous. This group is exempt from this, this group is exempt from that, this group gets an extra year before the law applies to them. Either this is a law foe everyone or not. If not, all the more reason to repeal it.

The House of Obama is crumbling.  South Carolina disallows Obamacare, law suits coming against the NSA (Nazi Security Agency), scandal after scandal, Pelosi gets her private military jet taken away from her, and Putin pins Obama over Syria.                                                                                                                                                    Dictators are such a sorry lot, like little boys who just have to get their way, and if they don't, they hit you.                                                                                                                                              

Their eyes open widest when someone is trying to pick their pocket ! I am glad they won their case !

I say don't have sex if you can't pay to be protected. Its not my responsibility.or any one elses to pay for their fun. I hope every Church out there fights this.

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
