Another Republican, this one from Missouri, no less, making us so proud


The stupid.

It burns.

Rep. Paul Wieland

Missouri legislator files suit to be exempted from contraception mandate in state health plan

Said another, better way, at the same paper:

Male Legislator Seeks Personal Exemption from Contraceptive 


Check out this little beauty:

ST. LOUIS • A Missouri legislator asked the federal court on Wednesday to exempt his family from contraception coverage through the state insurance plan, saying it violates his religious beliefs as a Catholic.
Rep. Paul Wieland, R-Imperial, and his wife, Teresa, filed suit in U.S. District Court downtown against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and two other federal agencies. It asks the court to declare that the mandate for contraception coverage in the federal health-insurance law, known as Obamacare, violates their First Amendment freedom of religion.
Fortunately, this blogger pointed out the ignorance and even stupidity of his move:

You Know Your Religion Isn't the Only ReligionRight?


So just because this law goes against HIS religion, the legislator's, he thinks it should also not be allowed for any other person or religion in the entire state of Missouri.

And again, keep in mind, this is the political party of "small", unobtrusive government.

Yeah.

Right.

Got it.
