HHS Mandate & Separation of Church & State

OK, so our beloved dictator Obama has made an "accomodation" for religious organizations in the contraception mandate. We are no longer required to provide contraception and abortion coverage. However, we still need to provide health care and all health care nationwide must provide contraception and abortion coverage. In other words, we no longer need to pay 50 cents, we just need to pay 25 cents twice. Anyone who sees Obama's health care policies as a good thing is as gullible as Dear Leader Obama wants them to be as he continues his attempts to establish an authoritarian state.

One thing that has gone largely unsaid in all this is that the HHS mandate is a violation of the separation of Church & State. Church & state are separate, therefore the state cannot tell the Church what to do. Not only is this a violation of our basic freedoms, but also a violation of our governmental system that, at a very fundamental level, separates Church & state.
