Senator Marco Rubio Submits Religious Liberty Bill

Wow, religious liberty! What a concept for the United States. From the Catholic League:

Senator Marco Rubio introduced legislation today to repeal the Obama administration’s mandate requiring healthcare plans to cover abortifacients, contraception and sterilization.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments as follows:

The Catholic community will be delighted to learn of the courage shown by Sen. Marco Rubio in seeking to combat the Obama administration’s unprecedented assault on religious liberty. If the administration were to get its way, Catholic non-profit institutions would be forced to carry healthcare services that the Church deems immoral. What’s at stake is the First Amendment right to religious liberty, and nothing goes to the heart of this civil liberty more than conscience rights.

The Catholic League appreciates the incredible support we are receiving from people of all faiths, as well as from some agnostics and atheists. We pledge to them that we will support our bishops in pursuing every legitimate remedy to this outrageous threat to religious liberty. Sen. Rubio has properly titled his bill the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 2012.”

I hope to God this guy is our next Vice President.

Anyone play the banjo?

Here's a little bit of humorous verse collaboratively written by Kathleen and myself. Naturally it is to be sung—with a slight lisp—to the tune of the Beverly Hillbilles theme song, which is also known as "The Ballad of Jed Clampett".

The Ballad of Rod Dreher

Come listen to a story 'bout a man named Rod
A poor crunchy blogger, used to write about God
Then one day when his sister bought the farm
His bigwig agent didn't have to twist his arm.

Money, that is. Greenbacks, college edumacations...

Well the first thing you know ol' Rod's a millionaire,
The kinfolk said "Ray's a-movin' back here!"
Said Ray, "Loweeziana is the place I ought to be!"
So they loaded up the truck and moved a-southerly.

His hometown's a buzzin'...
"Money, you say?
Don't we all get some?"

Well now it's time to read about Ray-rod and all his kin.
And heap big thanks to Davey Brooks for getting him an in.
Did ya hear there's fancy dancers in this here locality?
A mighty fine example of Southern hospitality.

Here's a dollar, honey.
Set a spell...
...keep your leg on.

Y'all buy the book now, y'hear?
