Rand Paul on what Obama should tell Pope Francis

With President Barack Obama set to meet Pope Francis this week, Sen. Rand Paul said Tuesday the president has some explaining to do.

“He ought to explain to the pope why he is telling businesses in America they can’t remain true to their faith and stay in business,” the Kentucky Republican said on Fox News’s “Fox and Friends.”

Paul brought up the lawsuit being heard by the Supreme Court on Tuesday that challenges the part of the Affordable Care Act that mandates coverage for birth control. The suit is being brought by businesses that say the rule violates their religious freedom.

“The ‘Hobby Lobby’ case is being discussed today, and I think it’s important that he tell the leader of the Catholic Church why he thinks that businesses owned by Catholics can’t make their own decisions with regard to health care,” Paul said.

The outspoken senator said he agreed with the Vatican chief justice, who reportedly in a recent interview said Obama’s policies are “hostile” to Christians.

    I just watched the Channel 5 news on this meeting. I ask all of you to watch the Pope’s face when Obama walks away. It is priceless.

    And if this disaster is approved, what’s next “on religious grounds” from businesses that are not places of worship?
    No blood transfusions? No vaccinations? No organ transplants? Yes,there are fine Christian organizations who could invoke these items. In fact some even reject all medical help in favor of prayer and prayer only. A couple recently lost TWO children because of this. Prayer may work – but sometimes, a bit of human intervention is essential. Bosses of profit making businesses have no right to control the medical decisions of their employees.

      It used to be if a pregnant woman had complications during birth, if only one was to be saved, it would be the baby. Catholic hospital. If you didn’t agree, you didn’t go. I’m assuming your example is Christian Science? The doctrine of prayer has always been their religion. Again, if you don’t agree, don’t be one.
      I’d rather a child with aids isn’t allowed in the child care center with my children because of the dangers involved. Government says they can’t discriminate basically saying they’d rather put all the healthy children at risk. If you think this is far fetched, the child in question was a biter. I won’t send my children to child care.

      It’s called morals, my friend, Morals, most people have them, others don’t, and then try to push theirs onto the other side.
