Pigs Flying moment?  How refreshing to hear a Judge that understands and respects the constitution and limited government.  As a side note, everything Obama does should be mocked and mocked often.

The WashingtonExaminer reports the following:

Judge Brian Cogan mocked the “accommodation” on religion liberty outlined by President Obama in regards to his health care law’s contraception mandate while ruling against a Justice Department motion to dismiss the Archdiocese of New York’s lawsuit against the regulation.

“There is no, ‘Trust us, changes are coming’ clause in the Constitution,” Cogan wrote in his ruling against DOJ. “To the contrary, the Bill of Rights itself, and the First Amendment in particular, reflect a degree of skepticism towards governmental self-restraint and self-correction.”

Cogan was referring to the fact that Obama’s promise to accommodate the concerns of religiously-affiliated institutions that would have provide free contraception.

“Under the rule, women will still have access to free preventive care that includes contraceptive services -– no matter where they work,” Obama said in February 2011. “So that core principle remains. But if a woman’s employer is a charity or a hospital that has a religious objection to providing contraceptive services as part of their health plan, the insurance company -– not the hospital, not the charity -– will be required to reach out and offer the woman contraceptive care free of charge, without co-pays and without hassles.”

As Cogan noted, though, the rule has not formally been changed. Religious groups also question the sufficiency of the accommodation outlined by the president.

“The archdiocese argued in court papers that even though it is unclear what its legal obligations will be once the exemption is fully outlined, it expects to incur nearly $200 million each year in penalties if it is forced to comply with the coverage requirement,” Reuters also observes.

The Catholic Association, which has long opposed the contraception mandate, hailed the ruling. “The judge in this case acknowledged both the non-existence of the so-called accommodation as well as the injury the mandate is already and will continue to inflict on these charitable institutions,” Senior Policy Advisor Maureen Ferguson said in a statement.

  1. What? Democrats can’t be trusted to deliver on their promises? SOMEBODY TELL BOEHNER!

  2. “…will be required to reach out and offer the woman contraceptive care free of charge, without co-pays and without hassles.”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Oh sure, be quick to help———LIKE YOU MR OBAMA?

    LIKE YOU HELPED OUR AMERICANS IN BENGHAZI?

    LIKE YOU HELPED THE VICTIMS OF SANDY?

  3. And don’t marvel: for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness. II Cor. 11:14 & 15

  4. Well, the half-wit Liar-in-Chief-from-Behind said there would be no new taxes on those of us earning below $250K, unparalleled transparency, and incredible savings due to less government waste, so how’s that working out, you pathetic fecal DC drips?

  5. Obama has turn inside out the guts of the Catholic Church and enjoys it. Why, the liberal of today wants their kids to decide whatever they will believe, I guess, as an adult.

    More of the next generation and their parents have no faith at all. America is too lazy to care or they have no clue what is truly going on here.

    Freedom is more precious now then ever and it seems that now because of Obama, one small pitiful man, he is changing the rules, I darn him to call himself a Christian. We all know that Obama has managed to deceive a nation. Now, it feels to me, he is deceiving God just a little and I see Good People taking the hit and the unborn becoming sacrificial lambs.

  6. Thanks Mara – I love mocking too!

  7. And yet the majority of Catholics voted Obama back into office.

  8. “But if a woman’s employer is a charity or a hospital that has a religious objection to providing contraceptive services as part of their health plan, the insurance company -– not the hospital, not the charity -– will be required to reach out and offer the woman contraceptive care free of charge, without co-pays and without hassles.”

    I think the Administration socialist clowns really believe it will be ‘free’ to the woman and employer who pay for the insurance just because they say so.

    Socialists would dictate a free car with every tank of gas and find themselves perplexed that a tank of gas suddenly cost $20,000.

  9. What the judge said makes perfect sense to millions of us. But remember, Obama couldn’t give a rats ass about the constitution.

  10. No, my Dear Patty, God is never deceived or mocked for that matter Gal. 6:7! Now the media works constantly to make it look like ALL Americans are deceived by Obama…but look at this election for example, never had so many people come to vote for Romney…who used to be Democrats, why because America has been waking up! We know the election was clearly stolen. Obama has destroyed the lives of so many Americans that they have come to know who Obama really is! Now sooner or later the other part of America that is still asleep that doesn’t think before they act is going to react to what has been done to America and it is not going to be pretty!

  11. I cannot believe the majority of Catholics voted for Obama after he issued the mandate. I’m not even Catholic and I was offended that the Mandate violated our First Amendment rights. And, if a Government so blatantly violates our Constitution on its first ruling, what is the world can we expect in the future?

    My husband was expressing sympathy for our young people not being able to find jobs today because our older folks have having to work more years due to our poor economy. My response was, “Yes, it is sad. However, Obamacare will take care of that problem by letting all of us senior citizens die when we are given pain pills instead of being treated.”

  12. “However, Obamacare will take care of that problem by letting all of us senior citizens die when we are given pain pills instead of being treated.”

    Exactly JoyO. Of course the Democrats who voted in this monstrosity called the “affordable care act” also voted to exempt themselves(Senate, House, President, etc.)from it–so they really do not care what it does to average Americans.That is what socialism does.

  13. #9, Respectfully,No they did’t! Massive Voter Fraud and nothing else,put Obama back in for a second term.

  14. mark1973, when are you going to wake up from your fever dream? Americans don’t agree with you.

  15. 90% of blacks voted for him and all his policies–they should turn their churches into abortion on demand clinics for them–since they support infantcide and are fake Christians. Let their taxes pay for their abortions not mine! All the obama drones decorated their homes for Xmas-in my area–its sickening. These hyprocritcal Christians who go to Church but put Obama signs in their yards. They support abortion and call it pro choice?? Makes me sick to know they call themselves Christians supporting GAY marriage, and the killing of botched children murders..supporting the killing of 4 bengazi men, the support of FT Hood killings,,it is sickening that they show themselves in a CHURCH!Now more mor more taxes and spend spend spend! These are obamas policies–and they justify and defend him? They do not walk with GOD but with an idol of a half white/black sinner who weasr a ring that says “ONE TRUE GOD ALLAH”.

  16. And I couldn’t agree more with this —

    The Fiscal Cliff And The Alinsky President.

    When one strictly adheres to the principles of Saul Alinsky, you don’t negotiate, you intimidate. You don’t take a stand, but make the other guy take a stand and then you demonize it. You create so much static with class warfare rhetoric that it drowns out reason and fact. A good case in point is the President’s insistence that the wealthy do not pay their fair share. He has been saying this for so long, it is almost an accepted fact by some. The real truth is that the top one percent of wage earners have gone from paying 20% of the total tax burden in the 1980s to 40% today. The percentage of the total income they earn is around 25%. If one extrapolates out the tax burden to include the top 10% of wage earners, the total share of the tax burden paid by that group is 70%. Their total percentage of the income earned is around 38%. These facts come straight from current IRS data.
    No fair-minded person could conclude from the empirical evidence laid out in the previous paragraph, that the wealthy in this country are not paying their fair share. And yet, the President spews out this categorically false narrative and a certain percentage of the population laps it up like kittens lapping milk from a bowl. This is also what followers of Saul Alinsky practice, repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth in the minds of the masses.
