The farce of it all: Kalifornia uber alles orders churches to fund abortions – or else October 23, 2014

Well, surprise, surprise, surprise……as part of its enforcement of Obamacare, the state of Kalifornia has determined that surgical abortion now constitutes “basic health services” and must be covered by ALL insurance plans, whether the holders of those plans are churches with moral objections to the murder of babies or not.  Everyone with a brain knew Obamacare would wind up instituting universal coverage for grave moral evils like contraception and abortion even on churches, even on the Church.  Kalifornia has simply jumped the gun a bit. Whether this will hold up in court, it all depends on what the magic 8 ball of Anthony Kennedy says on that particular day:

For the past four years, the Obama administration and its friends on the Left were careful to claim that they still strongly support religious libertywhile arguing that Hobby Lobby’s Green family, Conestoga Wood Specialties’ Hahn family, and others like them must lose. Principally, they contended, religious liberty protections could not be applied to Hobby Lobby because (1) It is a for-profit corporation, (2) It isn’t a church (and thus not a true “religious employer”), and (3) It is wrong on the science—Plan B, a copper intrauterine device, et cetera, they claimed, do not cause abortions. [WRONG.] They implied, if not claimed outright, that they would surely support religious freedom in another case, but Hobby Lobby was unworthy to claim its protections. [Horse hockey]

The State of California is now calling their bluff. California’s Department of Managed Health Care has ordered all insurance plans in the state to immediately begin covering elective abortion. Not Plan B. Not contraceptives. Elective surgical dismemberment abortion. 

At the insistence of the American Civil Liberties Union, [a long time communist front group, founded by a communist] the DMHC concluded that a 40-year-old state law requiring health plans to cover “basic health services” had been misinterpreted all these decades. Every plan in the state was immediately ordered, effective August 22, to cover elective abortion. California had not even applied this test to its own state employee health plans (which covered only “medically necessary” abortions). But this novel reading was nevertheless quietly imposed on every plan in the state by fiat.……..[Ah, the leftist’s favorite word…….fiat]

…..Several other California churches have received similar notices from their insurers, and others will follow. While California (like the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, or HHS) exempts churches from its contraceptive mandate, there is no exception to this bureaucratic abortion mandate. This leaves California churches in the illogical and impossible position of being free to exclude contraceptives from their health plan for reasons of religious conscience but required to provide their employees with abortion coverage. [And even more illogically, chemical abortions are excluded, but not surgical ones!  They must really feel a need to ramp up the offerings to satan there in the Kalifornia state government.]

This California mandate is in blatant violation of federal law that specifically prohibits California from discriminating against health care plans on the basis that they do not cover abortion.[So there had to be a law enacted specifically to keep Kalifornia from persecuting churches?  Do they pick on mosques in the same way?]  Alliance Defending Freedom and Life Legal Defense Foundation have filed administrative complaints with the HHS Office of Civil Rights (which oversees this federal law) on behalf of individual employees and seven California churches forced into abortion coverage in violation of their conscience.

What will be the administration and the Left’s response to this unprecedented attack on religious liberty? If they couldn’t stand with Hobby Lobby because it was a for-profit business, not a church, and because they thought its conscience concern was misplaced on the abortifacient nature of Plan B, will they now demand religious liberty for churches forced to cover elective abortion? If not now for religious liberty, when?

Oh please, never.  They don’t give a squat for “religious liberty,” “freedom of worship,” or any  of it.  To the militant sexular pagan left, religion is  for bitter clingers who just can’t get with the program in modern society without a crutch.  Even over just the past few years, the left’s open hatred for bible-@#$%ing Christofascist God botherers [their terms] has grown more and more open. They’ll say what is politically convenient at a particular time, but when push comes to shove, when it’s time to ratchet up the persecution another notch, all on the left will eagerly support the new measure, while the right will just mewl a bit and say how unfair it all is.

Guess what, the left doesn’t care about fair, or truth, or being exposed as hypocrites, or being shown to have massive double-standards, or anything else.  All the left cares about is naked power, and gradually assuming more and more of it.  To the extent any organization poses even a possible threat to that power, it will be crushed.  This is why the left, whenever it has seized unequivocal control in any nation, has always made persecution of organized religion one of its first moves. From France in 1789 to the Piedmont in 1848 to all of Italy in 1870 to Russia in 1917 to Eastern Europe in 46-48 to Chile in ’73 to Nicaragua in ’79, the left has always either co-opted the Church when possible (Nicaragua, largely) or tried to crush it out of existence.

The left is a product of endarkenment rationalism which itself was founded on (often well hidden) hatred of Christianity and the Church in particular.  Reading pre-conciliar Church histories, biographies of Saints and popes, and the like, makes clear the extent to which the pre-conciliar Church understood the radical political left to be its deadly enemy.  Reality hasn’t changed since then, what has changed is the attitude of most in the Church, who have decided its easier to be co-opted than to fight.  But make no mistake, the left will only allow a completely pliant, indifferent, ineffective, and pointless shell of a Church – otherwise, the left is always the inveterate enemy of the Church, with the greater the leftness, the greater the hatred.
