    The "Seperation of Church and State" does not mean the Church is less than the state. The Church stands for the Law of God and wants good for all people. This "Separation" was not intended to have the Church be coerced and intimidated by the state. The state makes laws which are not good for all people. We learned the lesson "Follow the Money" after the 9-11 terrorists. Follow the lobbyists money trail to your representatives. By the way, the President is even "Oborting" the government Democrat representatives by installing Czars, now bypassing their "voice" in his own Party. St. Jude, please pray for us and our Country.

    Hats off to all who posted--completely agree. God Almight have mercy on us all on on the sins of the world.

    If I read this right, the discrimination alleges that only women take contraceptive drugs, but aren't there contraceptives soon to be on market for males? Also, the condom is a male contraceptive device. The Church has taught on this subject, too. Discrimination on that front seems to be a bogus ploy.

    How about this, insert a clause for male contraceptives, too. Then the discrimination argument is busted, which it already is.

    We are the Church. We are the Body of Christ. We must stand in solidarity with our faithful members, like this wonderful college in North Carolina. How I wish all Catholic Colleges in the US would follow the example of Belmont Abbey.

    I think they should have presented a contract in the very beginning to these women, stating their faithful compliance with the Church on all these matters, and therefore if they themselves do not comply, they should seek employment elsewhere. Of course, any person seeking employment at a Catholic institution of any kind should expect that faithful compliance is a given.

    Unfortunately, other Catholic places of learning have been at fault and have lead people astray.

    Let us all stand with Belmont Abbey in prayer and support for their faithful and courageous stand as truly Catholic.

    Discrimination is not the case here, rather it is ENTRAPMENT. I will have my head cut off if these women think for a second that this Catholic Institution practices abortion. Maybe these women were sent by Planned Parenthood to apply for a job there and create this incident. Then, by all means it is entrapment.

    We, the American people desperately need a law enacted to enable us to call an emergency vote to remove an incompetent President, Senator, Representative, Leaders of both houses and a Justice of the Supreme Court...I might add to remove the costly and unnecessary Czars....

    We are looking for jobs for the people to come back to this country. We do not need this obscene, foolish spending. Wait until you see how we will be taxed in the near future to pay for all this...Norway will have nothing on the US.

    Should one consider the immeasurable harm done to the victims of the application of these procedures and medicines?If government's first duty is the education of the electorate, then actions aimed at preventing the very existance of the electorate seem wholly counterproductive. The inmates are running the asylum (again).
