What the writer is missing is tolerance and the lack of respect for the US Constitution. If this violates the employer's religious beliefs, they should have a right not to pay for it and that religious belief should be respected by the employee. The employees do not have a right to free birth control. Last I checked it's not in the constitution nor the bill of rights. Employees have choices. The employers are not PROHIBITING their employees from getting it. The employees can still get the birth control on their own. Many places do offer it for free such as unplanned parenthood and others or they can just pay for it out of their own pocket. My wife is employed by a Catholic business. I have no problem paying for it on my own as I respect their religious beliefs.

@kurtw I've been saying (not posting) that for years. I'm not advocating one party over another. We need 2 equally strong parties in this valley if we ever want to see improvement.

Parlay: Kudos to you for NOT being a hippocrite. You are very consistent in believing "guilty before proving innocence" or worse "guilty and not allowed to prove innocence"

They're not getting criticized for running a school like a business, they're getting criticized for POORLY running it like a business. Case in point: federal station is at least 2 miles farther than St Christine from austintown high school. It would cost more to bus them downtown. I'm sure St Jo IHM is closer. There's no savings based on mileage and time IMHO.

It is amazing when the constitution is brought up by the left when it is convenient. I agree they have every right to build it even if it is in poor taste. I also agree in the freedom of speech to have a conversation as to why they shouldn't build it. My question is:Why isn't the constitution brought up every time congress gets a bill passed? For example: the health care bill? I didn't see this opinion writer defending the constitution over it.

Has anybody read the bill? I expect to hear a lot of no's, especially from 300. The police cannot walk up to anyone standing around at a bus station or at a park out of suspicion of being illegal because of the way a person looks. They have to be caught doing something illegal first like peeing in the park or stopped for a traffic violation. After asking for ID, the police can call ICE if they have a reasonable suspicion that they are in the country illegally to verify whether they are illegal or not. Nothing wrong with that, period!!!

If you have that many shoplifting calls than you charge the shoplifter an extra fee for doing something illegal.. not the business for doing something legal, or does that make too much sense. The store will just raise their prices to cover the cost of the extra fees the township charges and we ALL pay for the misdeeds of the few.

Anyone who thinks the government is being benevolent is sadly mistaken. You are just being led like a bunch of sheep.

Thanks Phil for letting us know AFTER buying tickets that you will limit our choices of beer using drink tickets. The idea of a taste is to see if we like it, if we don't..we just pour the beer out and try another one. Your rules dictate that if we don't like the brew, we just wasted a ticket. I want a refund!!!!
