President Obama today said that all insurers -- not all religious institutions -- will be required to offer free contraceptive services to women. Here's what people are saying about it.


  1. Catholics should focus their energies on keeping their bishops from little boys instead of complaining about the dissemination of devices that keep NEW Catholic pedophiles from being conceived.

  2. Valinda…nicely said.

    i propose that in exchange for the Church’s acceptence of the insurance requirment, that priests who want it receive a life membership to NAMBLA, at government expense.

    The logic here is sound:
    1) it gives women working for religious organizations the same accesss to contraception as any other woman
    2) it satisifes a need of many priests and the Catholic heirarchy.
    3) it provides a method to identify and track pedophile priests.

    Sounds like a win win win for everyone.
