New Hampshire House condemns Obama mandate

Catholic World News - February 23, 2012

The lower house of New Hampshire’s state legislature has approved a resolution calling upon the Obama administration to revoke the HHS contraceptive mandate.

By a vote of 227- 121, the New Hampshire House of Representatives became the first legislative body in the US to condemn the Obama mandate. House speaker William O’Brien said that the resolution was not a statement on contraception or on the merits of Catholic teaching, but “stands up for our religious institutions that have long-held principles and teachings under assault by a president and his ideology that seeks not merely to reject, but to tear down our liberties.”

    Can't we charge Obama with a "hate" crime for his issuance of this? After all, it seems like everybody is being charged with being full of "hate" these Lenten days, doesn't it?
