Letter: Our religious beliefs

After the Hobby Lobby ruling, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin announced he will introduce a bill requiring “ ... all corporations using this Supreme Court decision to deny or limit contraception services to disclose this policy to all employed and applicants for employment.” U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) responded by promising Democrats “ ... will continue to fight to preserve women’s access to contraceptive coverage and keep bosses out of the examination room.”

People no more want bosses in the examination room than they want government bureaucrats and politicians!

Women have access to about 20 different birth control methods at local pharmacies. Sens. Durbin and Reid’s willingness to force businesses and taxpayers to provide for these nonessentials proves how out
of touch progressives are when it comes to the role of government. Most Americans don’t want to pay for others’ birth control.

More importantly, no one in America should be forced to violate their deeply held beliefs to keep their jobs or run a business. We should be free to live and work according to our religious beliefs, not the government’s religion. Thank God five justices understood this foundational principle upon which this country was founded.
