Schumer to Religious Americans:
Pick One--Your Faith or Your Business

Cybercast News Service, by Eric Scheiner

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/10/2014 8:05:59 PM

At a press conference Thursday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said people with religious beliefs who disagree with the ObamaCare contraception mandate can choose their faith or “you don’t have to form a corporation.” “You’re born with a religion or you adopt a religion. You have to obey the precepts of that religion and the government gives you a wide penumbra – you don’t have to form a corporation,” Schumer said. Schumer claims the Supreme Court’s decision that closely-held firms have a right to deny coverage for certain types of birth control they find objectionable under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) was

Comments:
Schumer sickens and infuriates me. Who made the arrogant Communists in the Democrat party the arbiters in deciding our freedoms in this country??

Schumer has obviously chosen to be a political prostitute. Guess religion was easy for him to abandon.

Very sad that a US senator, even one as sleazy as Schumer, doesn´t understand the Constitution that he has repeatedly sworn to uphold. This camera chaser doesn´t even have to read beyond the First Amendment to know that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"

There is no exception in the First Amendment for Obamacare´s abortifacient ruling, no matter what Obama, Schumer or other Dems claim. Nor is there the Either Or Amendment, which requires the abandonment of one´s religious beliefs in order to start a business. No laws prohibiting the free exercise of religion means no laws and definitely not 20,000 pages of ObamaCare regulations written by socialist bureaucrats within HHS.

fta "the government gives you". Charlie, you clearly do not understand. Our rights are as a People, and we the people designate some powers to the federal government. Not the other way around.

Like the president, your understanding is weak. The president does not understand impeachment ... "what, impeach me for doing my job" said the president defensively. Actually, impeachment can occur for abuse of power and misconduct in office, or for whatever Congress decides is impeachable.

Well Chucky you really hit the wall this time. Your statement is exactly why the First Amendment was placed in the Constitution. The government is using its power to interfere with a choice or position on religion. There is no separation between church and state; there is only a probation against government using its power to regulate a person’s position on religion.

A Texas-based organization that has been awarded hundreds of millions of dollars in federal contracts by the Obama administration to house illegal immigrant children not only lobbied the federal government, but also failed to properly disclose the activity. After The Daily Caller inquired about its lobbying disclosures, BCFS, a San Antonio-based nonprofit, now says it may correct its tax forms to properly disclose its lobbying expenditures. The Obama administration, through the Department of Health and Human Services, has tapped BCFS, formerly known as Baptist Child & Family Services, to provide security and other services to unaccompanied children at Lackland Air Force Base

How does CNN’s Chris Cuomo feel about being Jon Stewart’s “Moment of Zen” this week for his unfortunate “shoot down” pun while reporting like from Ukraine this week? According to a new interview with Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, the anchor isn’t thrilled. “I made a mistake,” Cuomo admitted. “In terms of who reacted to it and how, it’s strictly a case of consider the source.” In a possible dig at Mediaite, he added that bloggers “are what they are — they traffic in snark and negativity.” “If it seems like I’m being disrespectful of Jon Stewart, it’s only because I am,” Cuomo

The lavish wealth of underdog-defending filmmaker Michael Moore has been laid bare in his divorce battle with now-ex-wife Kathy Glynn, and their breakup is the talk of their small Michigan community. The couple called it quits after 22 years, with the divorce finalized on Tuesday at Antrim County Circuit Court in Bellaire. According to Celebritynetworth, Moore and Glynn are worth $50 million, much of his success coming from documentaries protesting capitalism. The pair own nine properties, with Moore splitting his time between Detroit and New York. The Detroit News reports that Moore blamed Glynn in legal proceedings for an expensive extension on their

A Boy Scout troop from the nation’s heartland is demanding answers and a U.S. senator is expressing outrage after a group of scouts was detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents, with one child allegedly held at gunpoint. Jim Fox, the leader of the Mid-Iowa Boy Scout Troop 111, said the incident occurred earlier this month at a checkpoint along the Alaska – Canada border. The scouts and their leaders were on a 21-day trek from Iowa to Alaska – a trip that had been three years in the planning. As their vans were moving through a checkpoint into

Iran´s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday called for a referendum canvassing the Arabs and Jews that live in Israel in order to end the "Zionist state", but said until such a vote could be held, armed resistance was necessary. Khamenei and his predecessor the Ayatollah Rouhollah Khomeini have called repeatedly over the years for an end to the Jewish state, including through a referendum in the region, where Palestinians are in the majority. In his first official comments on Israel since the start of its offensive on the Gaza Strip on July 8, Khamenei reiterated the call. "There are logical and

CAIRO--U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry proposed a Gaza peace plan that includes a one-week truce, an official involved in negotiations said Friday in Cairo. Assuming the truce held, talks between Palestinians and Israelis would then begin on economic and security issues. Other nations would be involved in the talks. Unresolved issues in the proposal involve whether Israeli military forces, now on the ground in Gaza, would retreat back to Israel during the truce. Khaled Meshal, political leader of Hamas, the militant organization controlling Gazan government, called for a humanitarian truce Wednesday after an Israeli strike on a United Nations

Israeli paramilitary police were on high alert today for flare-ups at Jerusalem´s most important mosque during Friday prayers for the final stretch of the Ramadan Muslim holy month. Hundreds of Palestinians protested in the traditionally Arab east of the city after Muslim noon prayers. A dozen protesters threw rocks and fireworks at Israeli police, who fired stun grenades and water cannons, Associated Press reported. The night before, thousands of Palestinians protesting the Gaza fighting clashed with Israeli security forces in the West Bank and in east Jerusalem in one of the biggest protests in the territory in years.

Top White House political adviser David Simas refused again Friday to honor a congressional subpoena. Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa plans to vote shortly in committee to reject the White House’s claim that Simas has absolute immunity from a subpoena from Congress. The White House informed Issa that Simas would not appear at 7:30 a.m. Friday, Issa said. The absence was “not excused,”the California Republican added. White House Counsel W. Neil Eggleston asked Issa to withdraw the subpoena to discuss his late Thursday offer for Simas to give a deposition instead of subpoenaed testimony. Issa refused to do so. “We have an absolute

The DOJ’s bid to amend the Americans with Disabilities Act comes four years after the agency signaled plans to move forward with new regulations, drawing more than 1,000 public comments.

One of Obamacare’s authors said in 2012 that states that don’t set up their own Obamacare exchanges can’t offer residents subsidies, throwing heavy weight behind the argument that the billions in subsidies to federally-run exchanges are illegal. Earlier this week two appeals courts heard arguments that the Affordable Care Act’s language doesn’t allow for subsidies in federally-run exchanges but answered the question differently. While the D.C. District Court of Appeals first found that the subsidies are illegal for the 36 states that didn’t create their own exchanges, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals said otherwise. But Jonathan Gruber, an economics professor

The Fox News contributor sat down with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and “The Five” host Andrea Tantaros to discuss President Obama’s consistently depressed poll numbers. Carville noted that the president’s low numbers have been “stable” at about “43.6 [percent approval] — which is not very good, but not collapsing.” O’Reilly — seeking to cut through the “technical garbage” — asked Carville whether the public’s perception of a failed presidency was accurate or “fair.” Carville tried to dodge a

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia.

That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady.

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E. Goodman, one of three Republicans on the six-person FEC.

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row
