It’s an Obama world…

World Net Daily reported on the arrests:

Six people peacefully protested the Obama administration’s mandate requiring employers to provide contraceptives, sterilization, and abortion-producing drugs by kneeling in prayer in front of the White House, and they quickly were arrested and whisked away by U.S. Park police.

“Occupy Wall Street protesters have been occupying federal property for months, but when we kneel in prayer, the police are called in and we are arrested,” said Father Wilde, one of the protesters.

The six people, including Wilde, of Priests for Life, and Rev. Pat Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition, organized the peaceful protest on the heels of a Priests for Life lawsuit filed against the Obama administration seeking to permanently block the implementation of the HHS mandate.

Wilde and the other protesters were cited for “failure to obey a lawful order” as they knelt in prayer in front of the White House. Each paid a $100 fine and was released from custody.

Wilde said. “We knew that was the risk when we gathered today, and we will do it again regardless of the risk. What people of faith – of every faith – need to do now is stand with us.”

  1. I’VE HAD ENOUGH! In this Holy War on Religion, of Religion, and by Religion, I SURRENDER! I’m a lover, not a fighter.  Instead… I’m gonna start my OWN religion, and get in on the good stuff: tax exemptions, and lots of taxpayer money to do what I want, in the name of religious liberty. Most definitely! Hey NEWT -wanna join? We’re gonna have open marriages and multiple wives and all SORTS of neat stuff that you’re just gonna love! But don’t you worry your little head Newt : we’ll have no , I repeat, NO nasty stoning of adulterers. None of that stuff. I Promise! As for SANTORUM, he just LOVES to tell other people how to live. He’ll make us a REAL fine preacher-man. In fact, we’ll make him Saint Santorum. AND fix his Google search results! As for Mr. Obama,  obviously, we’ll need to (severely) demonize him, even further. And his dog Toto too. Last but not least: MITT and RON. Hmmm. Hey, just for you two guys: we’ll insist on NO TAXES AT ALL for church members…AND human sacrifice of illegal aliens. Out with their hearts! Televised! Live! Whoooppee! WHAT A COUNTRY!  :-)
    By the way, please don’t mention the REASON that Mitt Romney’s dad was born in Mexico (i.e. The fact that Mitt’s Mormon grand-dad left the United States in the 1880’s. He went to Mexico BECAUSE laws against polygamy were passed in the U.S. ; Being a Mormon back then, Mitt’s grand-dad wanted to keep his multiple wives. Hey, who wouldn’t?) Bottom line: if we follow the “logic” of the people crying crocodile tears about a non-existent “war on religion”, then the U.S. should have allowed polygamy (and who knows what else) just because a particular religion claimed it as their cherished belief. GIVE ME A BREAK!
    Absolutely NO ONE is coming into our Churches or places of worship and trying to tell parishioners what to believe…..or forcing them to use contraception. BUT If the Bishops (and other denominations) want to continue running businesses that employ millions of people of varying faiths -or no “faith” at all- THEN they must play by the same rules and rights that other workers have and enjoy…especially if their businesses use our tax dollars (and skip paying taxes) in the process. This is not a “war on religion”. It’s a war on women and men who simply want to plan their families and control their future. Now that’s REAL religious liberty!

  2. Satan will have no prayer in his sight.

    NOTUS indeed.

  3. Let’s see if anyone cares. I doubt it. People get themselves arrested for protesting outside the White House all the time, whether it is these folks or a gay military officer chained to the gates, or anti-nuclear protesters…the list goes on. We’ll see if this has traction, but all indications are that it doesn’t. People may quote scripture in public, but most want the pill to remain cheap and widely availalbe.

  4. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; I guess that is a severe threat to the occasional occupants of the White House. In between campaign appearances and extravagant vacations, the elected leader of the free world panics with the presence of 6 people praying.

    Ya, my 16-year-old son has about the same ideas that you do. That’s ok, I’ll use it as a teaching moment.

    Our Constitution is an agreement among men as to how they are going to work together. On aspect of this agreement is that “Congress shall make NO LAW …. respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

    The grownups understand that they are being offered about $700/year to throw away their religious freedom, and that this is only an opening gambit. This is very much along the lines of selling your birthright for a bowl of stew, and if you don’t care about your birthright, we do.

    Well, robe-tearing wailing dude.

    At this moment YOUR tax dollars don’t PAY for anything of the sort, because we have PRIVATE insurance, BUT the OBAMACARE is FORCING to change all that FREEDOM to buy whatever insurance YOU wanted, NO TAX DOLLARS involved to a TAX-BASE medical payment system. WHy oh why? Our private system worked great, no one had to pay for something they didn’t agre with.

    SO, how come you aren’t fighting tooth and nail AGAINST Obamacare which will make it TAX DOLLARS if you don’t want anyone to tell you how to live?

    Do you have a REASONING fail?

    Birth control methods are cheap and widely available right now. What this act will do is raise the cost, just as other medical expenses have spiraled out of control.

    OH, so so equivalent, not chaining oneself to property and chaining. No difference.

    The pill is already cheap and already available without any Obama help.

    Only Democrats think it’s more important than national defense and clean water. How come you HATE children so much? Hate is the only word. Abortion kills them, contraception never lets them begin. To Democrats children are the worst punishment on the planet. Worse than polio or malaria – yeah – look at the funding to eliminate those versus funding to population control – worse than wars and earthquakes, because all the natural disasters Democrats ultimately blame on too many children. A culture of child-hating.

    This is evil and depravity and selfishness beyond words. Hating children.

  9. Someone once said, to ban someone with a conscience from medicine is crazy – that’s the one person you’d want to have one. I agree. This administration is an abomination. If some Catholic nutcase does something extremely stupid, there will be no holding back on the persecution that will follow – since having a conscience is not valued.

  10. The “pill” was $6/mo in the seventies. Now it is $60? WAtsup? Lots of people canty fit a $60 monthly expense in their budgets, but $6 was seldom mentioned. Most things get cheaper as time and use make them less special!

    Tatoos cost hundreds a piece for the simple ones, thousands for the complex, cable $100 a month. I don’t see ANYONE who ‘needs” contraceptives who can’t BUY them.

  12. #1 – has anyone ever called you a person of profound selfishness, arrogance and ignorance? if not, it would be my honor to be first. That public school education worked wonders for you I see. Try looking beyond your eyelids for wisdom. Myopic, selfish, smallminded, arrogant a’hole.

  13. Hey, let’s make cell phones free – oh wait…..

  14. Muslims galore outside the Whitehouse praying is fine though.

    #1 – Don’t you have a problem with the arrest of people practicing their Constitutional right to practice their religion? No one is stopping people from getting contraception, but it is a different story to force a religion to financially provide contraception when they believe it goes against their beliefs. From what I understand, contraception is not a right to be provided on any organization’s or their health care provider’s dime.

  15. If people can’t even bother to have sex using a condom to prevent the spread of HIV and veneral diseases, what makes people think women are going to bother taking the pill just because it is free.

  16. Okay, Roman Catholic Churches are being forced to provide contraception or have their health care provider’s provide contraception free, but what about mosques? Are mosques being forced to provide contraception??????? I haven’t heard anything about that.

  17. Oh I get it now filthy lice invested occupiers leaving their filth and body waste around our nations Capital and monuments and Obama praises them, but men of faith bowed in prayer to the Lord he has his goon squad arrest. Gee maybe they should have cried out God Da#$ America, he would have been on his knees right with them. Not to worry the commie pigs of the media will ignore it or make some outlandish claim to demonize them.

  18. If you want to know what the received wisdom of the real idiots will be this election season, here’s your source.

    Strategic Vision: America and the Crisis of Global Power
    By Zbigniew Brzezinski

    A book by the most blatantly stupid foreign policy advisor, evah. This is the jerk who, after watching George H.W. Bush criss-cross this country calming it down after 9/11 saying “This is not Islam!” characterized one of his speeches as ‘somewhat less islamophobic.’

    This man is dumber than Eric Holder.
