In light of my earlier post just below on Obama’s assault on religious liberty and the American Way (along with on truth and justice!), Monica Crowley also has a terrific column on the subject. Here’s how it starts:
Team Obama has always acted like the Chicago mafia operation that it is: they intimidate, arm-twist, threaten, and punish just like an organized crime syndicate. When it comes to rolling like gangsters, the Clintons were pikers compared to Team Obama.
A few months ago, they bullied the Catholic Church and other religious organizations by mandating that they provide insurance coverage for birth control, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs—in violation of their most deeply held beliefs and of religious freedom guaranteed by the Constitution.
Thugocracy reigns… but, one can hope, not for long. The courts can still rein it in.
