    Look at the amount of personal fortitude Mr HL and family have to stand up for thier beliefs when it is so incredible hard. They will spens MILLIONS of dollars to defend their beliefs.
    why don't you get it?
    It's not HL's place to decide.

And why I could never support someone who can even think that their god is supreme to all other laws for any position in government.

    People have done great harm in the name of their higher power including those that do so against the US. But I would guess that you consider your "higher power" superior to any one else's.
    Actually, I think the founders of this country used the higher power clause long before I did. Does, "All men are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights" ring a bell? It is that phrase from which all of our rights are given. And you will notice, they did not say that the rights are granted by governments or other men but by the Creator. So, according to the Constitution, which was written by men far more wise than I could ever hope to be, the higher power does trump government, because our rights are granted by that power and not by man nor government.

    I don't believe in your god (or goddess or godz). There is no higher power. So the government does trump your imaginary being.

    Good for your church, assuming it is an a very modest building in a working class part of town where real estate is inexpensive and the maximum amount of money can go towards helping other people rather than in operating costs. I never said there were no good Christians who didn't want to help others, just that the posters on this board (and anywhere else) who call themselves Christian - and yet judge others who are struggling - need to stop thinking of themselves as good people, let alone good Christians.
    My church is in my preacher's back yard, in between his house and his shop (he lays water line). We look out over his roping arena and a plowed field. It is awesome. I love it, and the people there. His wife says it is an accidental church, lol.

    You are welcome to your opinion, but there is no need to be rude.

    People like you read God into everything, there is no logic in your world. There is also no debate for those that are so blind to anyone else but their "higher power".

    There is no way you can state as a "fact" that there is no higher power. There are hundreds of millions of people who will vehe,ently disagree with you.

    why not? Mr. Green claims that the drug he wants exclusion from paying for is an abortifacient, when it is not. My truth is less truthful than his? Because hundreds of millions of people disagree?

    And there is no way you can state that there is a "higher power" because there is no concrete evidence except saying it is true. Noone knows.

    so let's assume for arguments sake, that the prelim decision is rescinded but not until oh.....Feb 1. Does that mean that the feds would have to pay back any monies he paid to cover the fines or are the fines non-refundable?

    I guess the creator didn't think women or blacks were entitled to rights since those groups ,among others ,were left out of the original document. Only with the passage of time and change of culture were those groups allowed to participate in this republic. But, then again ,maybe even the Creator changed over time.

    You were being rude by referring to God as an imaginary being. Regardless of ones beliefs, that was uncalled for. It was demeaning.

    you took offense, but that still doesn't make my comment rude or demeaning.

    And following the progressive precedent of the Climate debates.. millions of opinions over the globe settles the facts of science. eg.. there is a higher power.
