If This Senator Has His Way True Christians Won’t Be Allowed To Own Businesses Anymore

In light of the recent Supreme Court decision defending the right of certain business owners to opt out of ObamaCare contraception mandates that violate their religious convictions, many leftist proponents of socialized healthcare have openly ridiculed the ruling and those who may benefit from it.

Among the latest to weigh in is Democrat New York Sen. Chuck Schumer. In a press conference this week, he suggested that anyone whose religion teaches that the murder of an unborn child is wrong should simply not open a business in America.

“You’re born with a religion or you adopt a religion,” he asserted. “You have to obey the precepts of that religion and the government gives you a wide penumbra – you don’t have to form a corporation.”

He went on to criticize the Supreme Court for what he contends is a misinterpretation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was used as a basis for the majority opinion in the case.

“When we wrote RFRA back in 1993,” he continued, “we did so to protect individuals with strong religious beliefs and give them the presumption they have always enjoyed.”

Schumer suggested that the court “misapplied” that law to include closely held companies such as craft store chain Hobby Lobby.

“We wouldn’t tell the owners of Hobby Lobby to convert to a different religion or disobey their religion,” he said; “but we don’t say that they have to open up a company and go sell toys or hobby kits.”

Naturally, many who believe the federal government should not mandate what forms of contraception – including drugs some believe are tantamount to murder – private businesses must pay for are disturbed by Schumer’s superciliousness.

Others pointed out the perceived hypocrisy of his selective outrage.

His message was apparently meant to dissuade individuals guided by their faith from pursuing an entrepreneurial career, leading some to wonder about the countless pre-ObamaCare businesses started by religious families.

      Hi Edward,
      This is another POS that needs to be voted out, he is a Obama azz kisser, just 2 years ago he signed a Bill to give the Kenyan 100% authority to dictate to America. I remember I sent a email to him upset that he would signed such a bill.

      I had been thinking the same thing you just said about this POS Schumer, shoving those glasses up his face that are always hanging on the tip of his nose. I can't stand this man, did you see that rainbow crap that he was wearing around his neck, I wonder if he swings both ways.

    I suggest that anyone who condones at best, promotes at worst, the murder of an unborn child should simply not run for any local, State or Federal government elected office or apply for any local, State or Federal government job.
