Why Obama won't compromise on the HHS mandate

Catholic World News - June 05, 2012

The contraceptive mandate could be overturned as the result of a Supreme Court decision or a Romney victory in the November presidential election, notes Gerard Bradley in The Public Discourse. But the Obama White House will not back away from its stand, he believes, because the mandate reflects the administration's deeply held ideological principles.

    I believe the Obama White House will not back away from its stand because the mandate reflects the administration's deeply held beliefs regarding political contributions. The abortion industry has a long history of buying politial support, and the President has a long history of being bought.

    A fascinating study. The author has given this a great deal of thought. I've found myself making similar observations about the possible motives of progressives, however, the author has done an excellent job of summarizing this into a succinct yet complete view of those who seek to destroy Christianity. One important aspect that seems missing is how progressives treat Christian thought, morals and beliefs differently than non-Christians beliefs, such as Islam and Buddhism.
