    As a nonbeliever I'm quite pissed that you can get out of this health care system by being Amish. Believe and live by some ridiculous set of beliefs and suddenly the law doesn't apply to you. That is unconstitutional but alas I don't have the money and energy to fight it.

    Now it looks like the dung holes that foisted this on the US are giving you the bird, they apparently exempted themselves. We already know that congressmen would never live under the same shitty systems they sell the sheep, but staffers? Obama had better force it on his staff or he will pay a steep political price.

    Up yours america:

    So what's the criteria to be declared Amish? Grow a beard? I can do that. :)

    Will the Amish and other religious sects be exempt from this bill?

    Michelle Malkin reported the following on Hanuary 12, 2010.

    “There’s a religious exemption from the Demcare insurance mandate”

    “I think there’s going to be a wave of religious conversions this year. The Watertown Daily News reported this weekend that Amish families can claim an exemption from the Demcare’s planned government health care insurance mandate as a matter of faith:
    Federal health care reform will require most Northern New Yorkers — but not all, it turns out — to carry health insurance or risk a fine.
    Hundreds of Amish families in the region are likely to be free from that requirement.
    The Amish, as well as some other religious sects, are covered by a “religious conscience” exemption, which allows people with religious objections to insurance to opt out of the mandate. It is in both the House and Senate versions of the bill, making its appearance in the final version routine unless there are last-minute objections.
    Although the Amish consist of several branches, some more conservative than others, they generally rely upon a community ethic that disdains government assistance. Families rely upon one another, and communities pitch in to help neighbors pay health care expenses.
    …Lawmakers reportedly included the provision at the urging of Amish constituents, although the legislation does not specify that community and the provision could apply to other groups as well, including Old Order Mennonites and perhaps Christian Scientists.”

    If you have good fundamental philosophical objections, that's too bad, the left hates you anyway and likes forcing themselves into your life.

    If you think your sky daddy doesn't want you to have to have health insurance, you are all set.

    Well screw you loser socialists, I'm gonna make my plans to mooch and you are gonna get less, not more, out of me.
  6. So wait a minute...did you just say that freedom of religion is "unconstitutional"?

    I will tell you what is unconstitutional...this whole healthcare fiasco. I hope you like living in a new violent, drug addicted, non-english speaking America because now all the junkies, the gang bangers and the illegals who didnt have health insurance and would just die, will now be bandaged up and taken care of, ready to start making babies and ending up just as violent and drug addicted as their parents.

    The government is favoring certain religions by exempting them from having to have the health care law rammed up their asses. Favoring one group over another on religious grounds is unconstitutional.

    As good Christians it is important that we do not seek understanding of the sources of "all the junkies", gangs, illegals, etc., but instead stick to our scriptures and condemn them all to death. Understanding may lead to compassion, a sign of weakness, which the Lord abhors.

    that was stunningly funny as I was scrolling down.
    I was completely unprepared for a good amish joke.

    Yes well the Amish may be the ones laughing at us someday since they are well equipped for self sufficiency.

    I am resigned. This weekend I'm gonna think about 'what can I get out of this?' I hate being that way when the gov't is bankrupt but I'm stupid if I don't.

    So much for 'ask not what your country can do for you'.
