Well, I have a deeply held religious belief against tanks. Can I get a personal exemption so I don't pay my share of taxes that go to the D.O.D.?

Nice. Now these girls know that their dad's greatest fear and what would hurt him most is that they may some day have sex out of marriage and maybe even enjoy it. So if they are looking for a way to get back at daddy for always working late, caring about his political career more than he ever did about them, not buying them a pony or not letting them go on that ski trip when they were 16.... they now know how to go about it. That thanksgiving break when one of them brings their (hopefully black or latino) boyfriend with whom they share an apartment in college is gonna be awesome.

I hope his daughters all have bad acne, painful periods, or any one of a hundred other conditions they prescribe "birth control" for. Bonus if his daughters have to take Accutane for their acne over orthotricyclin.

Not really, but I'd like to see him caught between his Rock and a hard place while caring for his daughters.

If you are having sex outside of wedlock you are not a good catholic. Sorry to break it to you. the church is pretty clear on this point.

Catholicism defines chastity as the virtue that moderates the sexual appetite. Unmarried Catholics express chastity through. Sexual intercourse within marriage is considered chaste when it retains the twofold significance of union and procreation.

The pope(s) have spoken explicitly on this multiples times.

Or do you pick and choose which rules you follow?

Better:  If the young gentlemen in question would send text messages to him every time they had sex.  "Hey old man, I just cream pied your daughter again.  But at least she's not using birth control."

I had a weird conversation with an older coworker. Now with Obamacare, his daughter can stay on his health insurance, which is quite good, until she's 26, and because he has other children still in highschool and is on a family plan, she's essentially automatically covered, but he wants to kick her off his health insurance because she's getting married and he thinks that her fiance/husband should now start taking care of her. Even though it costs nothing additional to him to keep her on his plan, would give her better coverage, and help them out financially. He and I get along real well most of the time, but I thought this was really just mean.

I don't really get the mindset of a lot of people when it comes to some things.

That's a very good thing.

It creates this phenomena of "moderation". And yes, Fark ideologues, getting shiat to work is more important than following DA RULES.

"I see abortion-inducing drugs as intrinsically evil, and I cannot in good conscience preach one thing to my kids and then just go with the flow on our insurance. "


Interesting, this is from his health insurance carrier.

"Coverage for contraceptives either at no charge or at the same level of deductible, coinsurance or copayment as any other drug. Contraceptives are defined as prescription drugs and devices approved by the FDA for use as a contraceptive. Coverage is not required for drugs and devices that are intended to induce abortion."
~Missouri Consolidated Health Care Plan.


A republican Lying?

Near as I can figure, Catholics just lie about sex and pick and choose what rules they want to follow at the time. Then they go to confession, feel guilty for a while, and start a cycle of denial and repression that brews some very kinky fetishes later in life.

I have met some VERY devout Catholics who are devoted BDSM and/or swinger types and spend most of their lives being guilty while getting off.

Zeb Hesselgresser: How farking hard is it to just not buy something you don't like anyhow?

So you don't understand what coverage mandates are?


So they do mandate he go out and get birth control for his daughters?
 
2013-08-15 03:14:19 PM  

Zeb Hesselgresser: So you don't understand what coverage mandates are?


Hmmm...

FTFA: A Missouri Republican has asked a federal court to exempt his family from contraception coverage through the state insurance plan, explaining that he doesn't want his three daughters to have access to no-cost birth control because it violates his Catholic faith...."I see abortion-inducing drugs as intrinsically evil, and I cannot in good conscience preach one thing to my kids and then just go with the flow on our insurance," Wieland remarked. "This is a moral conundrum for me. Do I just cancel the coverage and put my family at risk? I don't believe in what the government is doing."

Apart from the fact he doesn't know the difference between contraception and abortion---If he's suing to have the entire mandate removed for all familes because he doesn't want to subsidize it, that at least makes a kind of sense---but if he's suing only for a personal exemption, he just wants coverage nullified for his family. But coverage doesn't imply usage (as others have pointed out), and his family's usage habits won't change anyway. So what does the mandate have to do with it at all? He could just cancel the coverage and buy his own Catholic-approved insurance, like other people sometimes do.
 
2013-08-15 03:14:35 PM  
I don't see the problem.  Can't he just opt-out of his insurance and pay the penalty?  Is any price really too high, when your principles are at stake?

Zeb Hesselgresser: dr_blasto: So, do they force him to buy contraceptive pills? When I was single, my insurance had coverage sections for pregnancy and birth. That didn't force me to grow a set of ovaries and a uterus, I simply didn't use that coverage.

How farking hard is it to just not buy something you don't like anyhow?

So you don't understand what coverage mandates are?



His insurance company is required to include coverage for birth control pills.  He is not required to buy the pills.  "Coverage mandate" does NOT mean that the person who purchases the insurance is actually required to use every service and prescription that is covered.

It helps if you believe in gods other than the Christian ones. Just don't let some of the wiccans get on your nerves...they can be a bit zealous.

Why should others get to have sex when he can't.
Why he is focusing on other peoples' sex lives.

We can follow up with a Catholic litmus test that most "real" Catholics fail.

1) Do you believe that Adam and Eve were actual people that gave us actual "original sin?"

2) At Communion, are you symbolically or literally eating Jesus' body and blood?

He can chose to not use his State provided health insurance policy and purchase insurance from the open market or from the Missouri Health Insurance Exchange. He's chosing to grandstand and now he's in the news.
