Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

The GOP’s Twisted View of “Freedom of Religion”

The Senate narrowly voted down a measure that would have allowed employers to arbitrarily deny health care benefits that they find “morally objectionable.”  The Republicons tried to defend the proposal as a  “freedom of religion” issue ( see the letter reference below).  What! Giving your boss the right to determine what kind of medical care you can get based on HIS religious views is somehow protecting YOUR religious rights.  What kind of weird casuistry is that?
