  •  If the Catholic Church wants to do business in the (7+ / 0-)

    US, they can follow the same rules as every other business.

    So here's the first question:
    1. When did the business first experience the grace of god?
    2. When was the business baptized in the religion? Does it have Godparents?
    3. Is the business considered a full, adult member of the religion? Did it receive Confirmation?
    4. Does it tithe to the religion?
    5. Has the business confessed its sins to a priest?
    6. Does the business take Communion every Sunday?
    7. How big is the wafer?

    Bottom line--If your business wants a religious exemption from doing what every other business is required to do--pay for full medical coverage for your female employees--then your business has to prove its religion to the government. Especially if you expect to collect tax breaks or tax incentives from people like me, who have religious objections to religions that try to be businesses.

    How does the Republican Congress sit down with all the butthurt over taxing the wealthy?
