Pirro On Obamacare Contraception Mandate: YOU LIED!

“And yet, you as a former constitutional professor, refuse to exempt them from the contraception mandate. You, the same guy who grants exemptions and waivers left and right to unions, political buddies, bundlers, but not to the women who have devoted their lives to God and caring for the sick?” – Judge Jeanine Pirro

On Fox News’ Justice With Judge Jeanine on Saturday, host Jeanine Pirro in her opening statement addressed the Obamacare contraception mandate and the nuns made famous recently by Justice Sotomayor.

It seems all to obvious, and Pirro puts it in stark terms. But this is a clash of religions and those are rarely settled easily. On one side, the Catholic Church and their fundamental religious objection to providing contraception. On the other, the Liberal Church and their fundamental religious devotion to giving every single living human being on the planet some form of contraception.

The Obamacare acolytes do not care about religious freedom. Well, not Christian religious freedom anyway. It is merely an inconvenient part of American life they tolerate so long as it doesn’t get in their way. But when that free exercise clashes with their fervent devotion to contraception and abortion, you can bet they won’t be willing to budge an inch. Lip service only lasts as long as the lips have nothing to yell about.

Pirro lays the fight right at President Obama’s feet, where it belongs. Here is the transcript of the above clip:

I want a government that respects religious freedom. Mr. President, now that you’re back from your Hawaiian vacation … how’d you hitt them? How’s that handicap? You come back and you try to take away from the Little Sisters of the Poor, a 175-year-old religious organization that cares for low income elderly who are dying, their right to exercise their First Amendment freedom of religion. You promised the Catholic Church you would not, under Obamacare, force those with religious objection to provide contraception to employees, which of course is contrary to their fundamental beliefs and their exercise of their religion.

In spite of your promise, you are spending millions in legal fees to force the Little Sisters of the Poor who spend their lives serving the sick and the elderly to provide contraception, sterilization and abortifacients to their employees? Pray tell, Mr. President, might you have lied to the Catholic Church? And now you’re going to court to sanction one home $6,700 a day? What don’t you understand about the Little Sisters of the Poor? Now, I don’t care if you’re pro-choice or pro-life, you have a fundamental right to practice your religion. You have a fundamental right to the First Amendment, freedom of religion.

And yet, you as a former constitutional professor, refuse to exempt them from the contraception mandate. You, the same guy who grants exemptions and waivers left and right to unions, political buddies, bundlers, but not to the women who have devoted their lives to God and caring for the sick? Hell, even a convicted muslim felon in federal prison can exercise their freedom of religion. They can’t be punished for exercising their religion. And you go after these nuns to force them to violate their religion or put them out of business? Am I asking for too much? We’re only talking about your word. Religious freedom, the First Amendment. Mr. President. It’s 2014, and we are not getting off to a good start.

  1. Mr president needs to be impeached . He’s destroyed enough in this country , for what to get his name in a history book , as the worst leader in history . What a legacy he’s leaving behind , obamacare , are what’s the point people know , but the left loves to be lied to , and they see him for what he is , and do nothing PERIOD

  2. ” Christian religious freedom … is merely an
    inconvenient part of American life they tolerate so long as it doesn’t
    get in their way.”

    The left, libs, proggs, democrats, and muslims all have gone far past the point of tolerating Christianity as long as it doesn’t get in their way. There is an all-out, though undeclared, WAR AGAINST CHRISTIANITY being fought in America, and the obama REGIME is directly responsible. They desire to completely excise every remnant of Christianity from what used to be America. Big surprise, with a muslim in the White House.

    They have no idea of the horrors that will erupt when they succeed. They are opening the doors of hell.

  3. BTW Jeanine, he was not a professor, only a lecturer. Bill Ayers was too busy to ghost write for him at that time.

  4. Mr. President is sick. The persons who are the Directors of Mr. President are sick. You evil Congresspersons who allow this to be foisted on Americans, you are sick. This is Communism.
    Mr. pResident & Company: We do not want Communism.

  5. Not like the Cookie Monster, not like Sulley from the movie: Monsters Inc., not like Count Chocula, The Count from Sesame Street, or even like Sloth from the movie: The Goonies. More like the monster from the movie: Cloverfield… or Nosferatu… Obama is a blood-sucking, destructive monster.

  6. Thank you SO much for providing a transcript! Being hearing impaired and also a lousy lip reader, it’s a blessing/boon to understand what was said. THANK YOU THANK YOU!

  7. Obama sure likes to cite the Pope when he feels like it, now he goes after nuns? He truly is a sick and evil man. The “war on women” only counts for liberal women.

    1. Whether the ActorPresident is reading from scripted directives or whether the President is really in charge is immaterial – his or their ‘foreign policy’ is twisted. I am reminded of the recipients of his ‘medals of freedom’. When this treachery happens to them, as it has in all Communist takeovers, they will rue the day when they picked the wrong side.

  8. I applaud Judge Jeanine frankness in exposing how petty King Barack is and the foolhardy attempt to fight “the Little Sisters of the Poor” over forcing the contraception mandate upon them.

    The imagery of Holder and Obama against the Sisters who care for the elderly is strikingly conspicuous and one of the worst and egregious mistakes made by any administration. I loved Judge Jeanine’s analysis, especially when she states, “Hell, even a convicted Muslim felon in federal prison can exercise their freedom of religion…”

    And that sums up the Obama administration’s actions as we are witnessing presently with Kerry’s trip to the Middle East.

    “Benjamin Netanyahu’s hardline coalition partners on Sunday stepped up pressure on the Israeli prime minister, threatening to topple the government if he caves in to American pressure to accept a key Palestinian territorial demand in U.S.-backed peace talks.

    The warnings came as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry took a brief break after three days of talks with Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, jetting off to the Arab world to discuss his efforts before an expected return to Jerusalem later Sunday…”

    And to make it worst, Kerry following King Barack’s edict has stated that “Iran could “very easily” participate in this month’s United Nations’ peace talks on Syria.”

    Yesterday, some confuse my scientific opinions as being anti-Biblical. Yet, Obama’s surrender to radical Islam, Russia and China, leaves this Christian to recall Jesus’ words on the latter days:

    Matthew 24:32 (King James Version)

    32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

    33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

    34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

    35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

    36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

    37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

    39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

    43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

    44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

    45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

    1. In the Kelly File Report, the lawyer for the little Sisters of the poor said things would be o,k, if they joined the Bishops who are ex“““““““““““““““““““`

  9. Judge Judy puts the alleged ‘men’ in congress to shame. She is clear and she has courage and is on the mark with her assessments.

  10. i have a friend who’s feminist wife voted for obama twice. i don’t even speak to her anymore. makes my eyeballs want to bleed.

  11. in my perfect world….palin would be potus and the good judge would be her press sec. can you imagine her dailys with the liberal media? priceless. i would actually pay to watch.

  12. Remember, it was these same people who said they can make Christians violate their faith. Looks like Obama is going after a new title as “The most hated man in America”. Going after the Little Sisters of the Poor was a HUGE mistake and one, if continued to be pursued, they will deeply regret.

    Remember what Jesus said: :”inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” The Lord takes things personally when His children are involved. Woe to the administration.

  13. Obama has no word he is a liar, he has no empathy for the sick and dieing for he is filled with the devil and the devils legions who are also are murderers and a lairs. The poor village peasant that is Obama is a Muslim murder who serves his false little god named allah. Obama plays his Hudna very well, but even more so he plays the Americans and the Europeans even more.

    Impeach Obama

  14. Obama was never a professor. He was accorded the title “lecturer.” And what he lectured on, is probably as secret as everything else.

    I guess the exhibits in the Obama Presidential Library will begin with the day he was elected. Everything else prior to that is a blur.

      1. … and the utter ignorance and/or stupidity of its electorate that brought about the self inflicted demise!

    1. There are a few moments of clarity. John Lott remembers him from Columbia where he made clear his anti-gun stance.

        1. Nope. That was dereliction of duty He saw his duty to his country and he didn’t do it in that instance either.
