First Amendment on Last Legs

Nuns must buy condoms, so says the 10th Circuit Court. Because healthcare:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit ruled that the Little Sisters must comply with the government’s mandate to provide contraceptives for employees. The district court ruled the Little Sisters cannot receive a full exemption from the law’s contraception rules because they “do not substantially burden plaintiffs’ religious exercise or violate the plaintiffs’ First Amendment rights.”

The nuns disagree. “As Little Sisters of the Poor, we simply cannot choose between our care for the elderly poor and our faith,” says Sr. Loraine Marie Maguire, Mother Provincial of the Little Sisters of the Poor. “And we should not have to make that choice, because it violates our nation’s commitment to ensuring that people from diverse faiths can freely follow God’s calling in their lives.”

Not sure how much of the original intent behind the First Amendment will survive ♡bamaCare!!! or Obergefell vs Hodges. The churches will be made to comply with progressive dogma — and there doesn’t even seem to be an “or else!” at the end of that statement.

Everyone will comply, period.
