Make no mistake, before you accuse me of high hyperbole, Obama really means it. Barack Obama really thinks that the Bill of Rights is outmoded. Remember that to the radical left, if they like it - it must be mandated or government funded. One can think of a myriad things that the government funds that have nothing to do with governing and bear no resemblence to the powers of government as defined by the Constitution.
From PBS, NPR, Planned Parenthood, ACORN etc we should have learned that to leftists, the state and their beliefs are one and the same. They are the movement that cries "civil rights" while they impose tyranny bit by bit.
Do these leftists really think that there are no women in America who can buy their own birth control pills or condoms? Of course they don't think that. What this particular instance is about, to them, is a chance to stick it to those who do not agree with their perverted views. Leftists have to FORCE everyone else to conform to their beliefs and desires. The same people who claim to want "government out of the bedroom" are the same people who want the government right there.
Of course the radical left is hypocritical about everything. They claim to support "tolerance" yet they brook no dissent. Dissent from leftism must be crushed and ridiculed. Anyone who offends a leftist is labeled a hate crime offender while they take pure delight in offending everyone else's moral values. Laws and rules do not apply to leftists, just ask tax dodger Tim Geithner, just ask tax cheat Charlie Rangel. Just ask Ted Kennedy about the lover he left in the river.
Today is different.
Today, Barack Obama has given himself, deemed, the power to make law, change law on a whim and issue waivers to the law whenever and to whomever he likes. He doesn't like the freedom of religion, he doesn't believe that Christians and others should be able to live their lives as they see fit. He has decided that it is up to him to force his religion (worship of the almighty government) down the throats of every man, woman and child in America.
That is what is really at issue here.
This is pure tyranny.
