Meet The Little Sisters of the Poor


 

With so many stories of gloom and doom these days it is easy to forget there are true heroes toiling in the fields. Good people living their faith. Let’s visit the latest victors in their quest to live their faith. Role models for all of us. They just won a Supreme Court victory 7-2.

The Little Sisters of the Poor have reiterated their commitment to following their conscience as they care for the poor and dying, following a federal appeals court ruling that they must obey the federal contraception mandate.

“As Little Sisters of the Poor, we simply cannot choose between our care for the elderly poor and our faith,” said Mother Provincial Sr. Loraine Marie Maguire.

“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. For over 175 years, we have served the neediest in society with love and dignity. All we ask is to be able to continue our religious vocation free from government intrusion.

Employers who fail to comply with the mandate face crippling penalties. In the case of the Little Sisters, the fines could amount to around $2.5 million a year, or about 40 percent of the $6 million the Sisters beg for annually to run their ministry.

    Agreed Mustang and as a pessimistic realist I see the swamp being restocked not unlike an over-fished catfish lake this November. After all there are a number of Senate seats needed by democrats in order to maintain a healthy swamp ecosystem for accelerating the taking down of the republic. As we have all witnessed these past few weeks incrementalism is no longer the order of the day, it is now demonstrate, destroy, murder, loot and burn….seemingly with impunity as there is virtually no push-back from the right. The burning question-pun intended- is will the american people give up their guns as easily as it seems a majority have surrendered their right to free speech? Consider that last year at this time professional ball players were ostracized for kneeling during the national anthem while this year God help any player not kneeling for the white racist national anthem or not standing for the negro national anthem which at least the Negro Football League will be playing before its games this coming season.
    My prayer is that I am wrong…

      Another blow by the Supremes…. now Vance will have a field day leaking Trump’s taxes and leveling a charge a few weeks before the election.. Meanwhile the GOP remains.mute as they plunder and pillage.. A sad sad day and as you say in one year. Now Ford should not make cars for the police… they sure are creative.

    While I am glad that we are up with this decision from the Supremes and I hurt with every Godless decision in that court, these ups and downs are making me seasick.

    By the way, what law is it that allows the Supremes to create law from whole cloth as they did with Robert’s majority decision on Obamacare, the recent decision by Gorsuch and Roberts on trans, and so many other “decisions?”

      No rhyme or reason to the Roberts court… though they seem to support religious freedom. For now..

      Bob applied for s position with Arbuckle Corporation as an industrial safety engineer. It is a critical position and one not easily filled. At some later time, Bob decided to pursue elective transsexual migration surgery, the consequence of which found Bobbi frequently away from work obtaining post-operative treatments, including psychiatric counseling. Arbuckle, with legitimate concerns that employee safety was in jeopardy fired Bobbi and hired someone else; Bobbi sued alleging sexual discrimination. Civil and Administrative laws protect people from arbitrary decisions and from gender, racial, or religious discrimination. But was Arbuckle’s decision arbitrary or punitive? I would argue no, since Bobbi’s decision to pursue non-medically necessary surgery placed the safety of Arbuckle’s employees at grave risk and its effect placed Bobbi’s suitability for this critical position into question. Plus, Bobbi was counseled several times about her absences from work during critical production periods. Note: this case was purely fictional for purposes of illustration.

      The Gorsuch decision addressed another matter altogether … the termination of employees for no other reason than that they are queer or confused about which bathrooms they can use. Employers must follow the law; if they do, then they should enjoy the protection of our courts.

      But does anyone have an obligation to obey s bad law? Herein lies our problem, brought to us by the people who elected a Democrat majority in the House of Clowns: ObamaCare. Chief Justice Roberts did not think OC was smart law, from a public policy point of view, but he did believe that Congress is empowered to levy taxes, which is what OC did. Besides, we must keep in mind that the US Constitution says whatever the SCOTUS says that it says, so again, presidential elections have significant consequences. American voters need to wise up or we will never see a drained swamp.

        There is nothing worse for small business that the medical leave act… specifically what I had to deal with… intermittent family leave… at any point of the day the employee can announce they are leaving… this goes on for six months if full time off… so a few hours here and there and one never gets to six months… try staffing in a hospital setting where lives are at risk. Try filling a position with anyone decent for a six month period. They come and go until they find a full time position elsewhere if anywhere a decent employee.
