Thank the Lord! Common sense has prevailed!

The senate has rejected a Republican proposal to exempt Catholic affiliated employers from being required to offer employees insurance coverage for women's contraceptives, like the birth control pill.

The debate over birth control and what was titled the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act is far from over, however. Expect to see this issue be blown out of proportion and utilized during the upcoming presidential election by conservatives.

The main reason this bill was not passed was not,

Religious Exemption In New Birth Control Law Catches Criticism

Filed under: Barack ObamaHealth

We were excited to report that insured women would no longer have to dish out a copay for their birth control beginning in January 2013 under new insurance guidelines set forth by the Obama administration.

However, the health care law includes an exception for religious organizations that morally oppose contraception, which has frustrated members of both Catholic and pro-choice communities.

They feel that the exception could exclude thousands of women employed by religious institutions from the preventative benefits the new law offers.

For example, Catholics for Choice president Jon O’Brien in a statement:

“The multi-billion dollar Catholic health care industry has a lot of influence with this administration, influence that it has now used to allow religious institutions to ride roughshod over the needs of their workers. Not only that, it ignores the consciences of those who decide that to use a modern method of family planning is what is best for them and their families."

A spokesperson for Planned Parenthood said, overall, they were pleased by the new insurance guidelines, but "disappointed" that some women would be left out of the birth control coverage.

The spokesperson maintained their pledge to help women in need of affordable birth control, saying:

"Planned Parenthood will continue to work hard to ensure that all women, regardless of their employer or insurer, have access to the health care they need, including affordable birth control."

The new law is certainly better than nothing, but hopefully ALL women will have access to affordable and effective birth care one day!

The Pope Vs. People Without Christian Names

pope only likes christian names

Looks like Catholic folks will have to go more traditional if they want to remain in The Pope's good graces.

After baptizing twenty-one children at the Vatican on Sunday, The Pope stated that new members of "the faith" will need Christian names.

Nowadays, the most popular names that Italians give their children are saints' names - Francesco (Francis) is the top choice for boys, and Giulia (Julia) is the #1 pick for girls.

…Guess The Pope would probs NOT be overly enthusiastic with Brangelina's childrens' names. LOLs.

Would the Pope approve of your name?

Hepatitis-A Spread In Church On Christmas Day

Filed under: HealthSick

Hepatitis-A Spread In Church On Christmas Day

The body of Christ was so pure at a Catholic church in Long Island on Christmas day, and was potentially infected with hepatitis A.

The church has yet to reveal the source of the virus, but did say that people who attended church at 10:30 AM and noon at Our Lady of Lourdes church could have been exposed to the virus.

Mary Ellen Laurain, a spokeswoman for the Nassau County Department of Health, said that "a person involved in the Communion process has tested positive for hepatitis A."

She continued;

"We feel the transmission [level] is low. And to protect the public from potential illness, those who received Holy Communion on Dec. 25 should receive prophylactic treatment."

Fortunately, hepatitis A isn’t as dangerous as B or C, so anyone who was potentially infected simply needs to seek out a doctor and get tested.

Churches might need to ramp up their sanitation methods!
