Revisiting a case that had been thought closed, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has ruled that Belmont Abbey College’s decision to remove contraception from its faculty health care policy, in accordance with Catholic teaching, discriminated against women.
The tip of the iceberg of Obamacare whackiness.
The ruling came after eight faculty members filed a complaint claiming the Church had a discriminatory health insurance policy.
I'm surprised that Belmont Abbey employs teachers who are unfaithful to Christ's Church. I thought they had a fairly decent reputation. What a pathetic witness to the many children whom they permitted to be led astray by hiring people who dissent from the Catholic religion.
Catholic institutions should hire Catholic teachers and only Catholic teachers who assent to the teachings of the Church. You reap what you sew.
I certainly hope this Catholic school has a policy to terminate employees who mislead children from doctrinal faithfulness to the Catholic Church - and follows through with firing them.
The EEOC claims that it is gender discrimination not to provide abortifacients to their female staff because men don't take oral contraceptives.
Every faithful member of staff ought to raise the heat in the EEOC's kitchen. Start filing discrimination complaints for the insurance to cover Viagra, in-vitro fertilization, embryonic stem cell research and every apostasy known to humanity. Blow it up until it becomes a public relations nightmare for them to defend their logic.
