Religious Liberty Fight Could Shutdown Gov't?

Give me liberty or give me government shutdown!!!

The struggle for religious liberty wages on with judges dismissing lawsuits on technical grounds and new lawsuits being introduced. And now, the controversy surrounding the HHS contraceptive mandate could possibly shut down the government a month before November’s election.

In the past few months, Republicans have introduced stand-alone legislation to allow religious institutions to opt out of the contraception coverage mandate by the Department of Health and Human Services. Each of the bills have failed.

How is it that a sovereign person cannot exercise his sovereignty, a sovereignty that constitutes our government; how is it that a sovereign person cannot exercise his sovereignty over his own conscience?
The examination of conscience, an integral part, a necessary part, of the Sacrament of Reconciliation treats the metaphysical soul of the human being. To put the human soul under Caesar, the state, in the HHS mandate and in the laws to abrogate the Seal of Confession puts a mortal human being over every rational, immortal human soul. Only God has the sovereign authority to rule over His creatures and their souls. The HHS Mandate violates the principle of separation of church and state. The state, government, is not authorized, nor is government equipped to pastor human souls, to forgive sins. Government makes temporal, short term laws. The Catholic Church makes eternal law available, understandable, and doable. The rational, immortal human soul is of the eternal law.
