Can’t Have it Both Ways

By Beacon Staff

I am writing today to comment about the Whitefish Jesus Statue, sitting on land owned by all Americans. I find it curious that Christians, and in this case Catholics in particular, want to have things both ways. First they want to violate the First Amendment to the Constitution by keeping the Jesus statue on federal land. Now, they are claiming their First Amendment rights are being violated because President Obama’s administration made a rule mandating coverage for contraceptives for those offering insurance. So do you want the government and religion to mix or not? You can’t have it both ways.
