To its credit, I suppose, The Denver Post published Charles Krauthammer’s great column on the Obama/Sebelius edict of the day. That would be their requirement that health insurance plans must include, at no cost to participants, means of contraception and morning-after abortifacients. To read the Krauthammer column, click here.
The Post’s true colors appeared in its editorial on the “compromise” (click here) ceremoniously announced by Pres. Obama, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius standing meekly at his side. Organizations operated by, say, the Catholic Church wouldn’t have to include these “bennies;” the insurance companies with which they contract would provide them. At no cost, of course. (Well, no charge to the participants which, of course, isn’t the same as no cost.)
The “compromise” is a distinction without a difference. The Post not only failed to “get it,” but published more recently the political cartoon at the other end of the link below, depicting a red herring if I have ever seen one.
That the Church’s bar against contraception isn’t honored by all its members is irrelevant. Even more poignant: from what language in the Constitution of the United States does the Post’s editorial board think Obama and Sebelius get authority to require things like this?
