The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war." - - Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia - Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

Last Stand for the Free Exercise of Religion

Last Stand for the Free Exercise of Religion



Many reporters attending oral arguments in the Supreme Court sit in assigned chairs on the far left side of the chamber.
These chairs stand behind a double row of massive marble columns. Brass gates, some opened and some closed, stretch between the columns; burgundy curtains, pulled back by cords, hang behind them.
Given their assigned seats, some reporters may not be able to see any of the justices holding forth at the front of the chamber.
All they hear are their voices.
Because the court only releases a transcript and audio recording of its arguments, the only Americans who definitely can see the faces of these justices as they bicker about the law — and our God-given rights — are those in the very small group granted entry into the central space of the chamber.
So it was last week, when the voice of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spoke up early in the oral arguments in Zubik v. Burwell.
This case carries the last names of the Catholic bishop of Pittsburgh (David A. Zubik) and President Barack Obama’s secretary of Health and Human Services (Sylvia Burwell).
From the secular sanctuary beyond the columns and curtains, Ginsburg seemed to make a telling concession.
“No one doubts for a moment the sincerity of the belief of your client and all the others,” she said to lawyer Paul Clement, who was representing, among others, the Little Sisters of the Poor.
“And since sincerity of their belief is accepted, it’s off the table,” said Ginsburg.
One of the beliefs Catholic organizations presented in Zubik was summarized in a brief presented by, among others, the Diocese of Pittsburgh: “Petitioners believe that in order to stay true to their Catholic faith, they may hire an insurance company only if it will not provide their students and employees with coverage that may destroy human life or artificially prevent its creation.”
The Obamacare regulation at issue in Zubik mandates that Catholic organizations do this — or give up all health insurance for their employees and be fined.
The court, Justice Ginsburg seemed to signal, was not going to argue with the Catholic Church about what is and is not consistent with the Catholic faith.
But the voice of Justice Sonia Sotomayor presented another question: How can the government function if it cannot demand people do things they believe will damn their souls?
“Because every believer that’s ever come before us, including the people in the military, are saying that my soul will be damned in some way,” said Sotomayor.
“I’m not naysaying that that is a very substantial perceived personal burden by them,” she said. “But if that’s always going to be substantial, how will we ever have a government that functions? How will we ever have anything that the government can demand people to do in objecting … that won’t be a problem?”
The First Amendment itself answers Sotomayor’s question: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
When federal regulators force Catholics to buy or provide health insurance plans that cover sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs and devices they are denying Catholics the “free exercise” of religion guaranteed in the Bill of Rights.
But, according to the Supreme Court’s official transcript, not one voice in the court during the oral arguments in Zubik used the term “free exercise” of religion.
That is because the court will not decide this case using the language and meaning of the First Amendment. It will decide using the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993.
“Government,” says that act, “may substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion only if it demonstrates that application of the burden to the person (1) is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest; and (2) is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.”
In the Hobby Lobby case two years ago, a 5-4 majority (including Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Sam Alito, Clarence Thomas, Anthony Kennedy and Antonin Scalia) ruled that the Obamacare regulation was a substantial burden on the religious exercise of Hobby Lobby’s owners, who did not want to cover abortifacients. But that majority also “assumed” the government was furthering a compelling interest with the regulation.
Where the government failed in Hobby Lobby was in convincing five justices that it was furthering its compelling interest by the least restrictive means.
To win the power to require Catholic organizations to act against the Catholic faith — and, thus, surrender the free exercise of religion — all the government needs is one more justice than it had in Hobby Lobby.
What America needs are more voices on the court that will defend not only the free exercise of religion but every word in the Constitution.
