    "Churches, too, were afforded broad protections under the Bill of Rights, but they still must abide by civil laws. For instance, a religion that practices pedophilia or polygamy or fundraising fraud cannot simply assert a blanket right under the First Amendment to do whatever it wants.

    Yet, today we’re being told by the Right that religious liberty is boundless and that any moral or religious objection by an employer against giving an employee some specific health benefit trumps the employee’s right to get that medical service. In other words, the religious freedom of the employer should trample the rights of the employee who may have a different moral viewpoint."

    Name a religion where polygamy and pedophilia are the accepted liturgy. Both are illegal and not part of main stream religions. They rank right up there with cannibalism!

    Maybe they had faith and felt they were forgiven for what they had to do to survive.

    I DID specify Accepted Liturgy!!! Polygamy is banned by the Mormon Church and it's also illegal. Pedophilia is illegal too and not accepted by the Catholic Church.

    Not accepted, but not exactly stomped out either.

    Schools have pedophelia too.....I don't think it's part of the curriculum.

    Nno school system would ever get away with shuffling pedopheliacs from school to school like the Catholic church did for decades.

    Republicans Gone Wild!!!

    By Jayne Dough | Healthy Living – Fri, 2 Mar, 2012

    This morning I read the paper; nothing new there. Then I got disgusted; the news was awful and confirms my belief that this election season Republicans have taken leave of their senses!
