    Is this regulation be so egregiously in error that it should be rejected?  Well, it really doesn't matter because we can't do anything about it.  This is what happens when law is not legislated.  For that, I think all these regulations should be illegal whether in Bush's administration or Obama's (look at all those cheering the upcoming unlegislated EPA possibilities).  But, I think the regulation protects people and life and I support it.  Instead of dismissing it, I hope the next administration can keep the good parts of this, and throw away the rest.  You don't hear that argument here.  It seems like protecting workers from being forced into performing work that's against their conscience is okay as long as it protects abortion.  How did abortion become so sacrosanct to surpass these sort of protections?

      about.

      You can't enforce laws without regulations.

      "Instead of dismissing it, I hope the next administration can keep the good parts of this, and throw away the rest."
      The good parts which actually don't exist, but flow "naturally" out of it, as if regulations were a spring from which law and goodness sprouted forth.

      However we finally get to what I think your actual argument is:
      "It seems like protecting workers from being forced into performing work that's against their conscience is okay as long as it protects abortion."
      Yes you should be able to fire workers who don't want to do their job. Whats so hard about that?
