Supreme Court to Hear HHS Mandate

News doesn't get much bigger than this.

Everyone knew the HHS Mandate was going to end up in the Supreme Court. Now it's happening.

The Supreme Court agreed to hear a challenge to the controversial Health and Human Services mandate which requires organizations to provide insurance coverage for contraception, abortifacient, and sterilization to employees.

The Obama administration appealed to the high court after the mandate got struck down by a federal appeals court in favor of Hobby Lobby, an Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts chain owned by a Christian family.

Now, don't pretend to guess for one second that you know how the court will decide on this. We don't. Nobody does. I can hope. I can pray that religious liberty is spared for a few more years. But I have no idea. Who knows what John Roberts will say. I mean, Roberts doesn't even know what he's going to say. Sometimes I don't think he knows what he's saying as he's saying it.

God bless all those who have fought the mandate in court. Keep praying folks. It's crunch time.



  1. The HHS mandate might not be an issue if the Bishops had soundly formed consciences on the seventh commandment. St. Thomas, in the Summa (I-II, Q. 96, Art.4) condemned those who would propose a tax that is not "proportionate" or equal. St. Thomas and St. Augustine both condemn economic tyranny, comparing its supporters to slavers. Thus any vote for any left of center party in any contemporary democracy is a mortal sin, with the possible exception of those who have the brains of a sheep, which unfortunately includes many voters. Thus they OUGHT TO BE THREATENED WITH EXCOMMUNICATION, and clergy ought to be forced to take the Oath Against Modernism. This would quickly expunge the American Hierarchy of such traitors as Cardinal Wuerl, Mahoney, etc. Perversion would decrease, and families would become more sound. To anyone who thinks this doesn't sound very charitable, my answer is that Catholic standards are very low, Catholics have thin skin, and sometimes, tough love is the most loving kind. Our Lady, please pray for us.
