In the olden days miners brought canaries into mines because canaries were very sensitive to toxic fumes and would keel over quickly, giving the miners time to escape before they were rendered unconscious.

The HHS mandate is serving a similar function in modern American culture. It’s making it clear that liberals believe in an all-powerful government, not the government empowered by the people that is enshrined in the Constitution.

Historically in America, the government has rarely collided with the religious beliefs of even extreme groups. A few exceptions, such as Mormon polygamy, were based on common values shared by the vast majority of Americans.

This lack of conflict was in great part due to the limited scope of government. If you were to bring an American from 1929, or even the middle of the New Deal, to modern America, he’d be shocked and probably appalled by the extent of government control over the lives of average Americans; historically very few Americans would have thought that the government had the right to define what sort of grocery bag a store provides, for example.

But as the tendrils of government extend into an ever-increasing number of aspects of day-to-day life the probability of conflicts with peoples’ moral codes grows.

In the past the right to practice one’s belief was taken very seriously. Even in conflicts viewed by Americans as existential, such as the Civil War and World War II, the rights of those whose faith called them to pacifism to not have to serve in combat roles, other than as medical support personnel, were recognized.

Yet the core of the HHS mandate, even with the latest attempt at a draft accommodation, presumes that only religious organizations have the right to exercise their religious beliefs. The latest HHS mandate revision is equivalent to saying that Quaker organizations don’t have to train soldiers but individual Quakers can be forced to fight.

It may seem that asking Catholics and others who believe that abortion-inducing chemicals are tools of murder and as such something they cannot directly pay for is not that big of a deal. That’s precisely why the HHS mandate is the canary. It’s true that the HHS mandate is not on the same level as China’s forced abortion policy. But the core philosophical assumption that powers the HHS mandate, even in its latest revision, would allow the government to institute a forced abortion policy or reinstitute slavery.

At the heart of the HHS mandate is the belief that the First Amendment does not mean what it says. To most the phrase

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

is pretty clear. It does not say freedom of worship, i.e. the right to go to church on Sunday or the temple on Saturday, as many liberals proclaim. It says that people can practice, i.e. exercise, their religious beliefs.

Under the Constitution, Americans define their own moral beliefs and in the vast majority of cases the government has to live with Americans practicing their beliefs. The HHS mandate is showing us that in the liberal mind, the government defines everyone’s morality and the average American has to live with the governments’ definition.

Liberals often demand that the beliefs and even feelings of tiny minorities of Americans must be respected; that’s why the 2.4% of Americans who are atheists can demand, in the minds of liberals, that high school valedictorian speakers not mention Jesus. Liberals support of tiny groups extends to those things that force the vast majority of Americans to behave differently and even against what they believe is right on occasion; what’s wrong with a Cross to honor fallen soldiers who were Christian?

Yet those same liberals tell us that the moral beliefs of Catholics, and other Christians, are trumped by the governments’ need to ensure that women can get free birth control. Essentially liberals believe that we have a 100% requirement to fund others’ sex lives but a 0% say in what sort of sex lives they have.

The harsh reality however is that liberals don’t give a hoot about the rights of small groups of Americans. If one examines liberal positions, one will find that liberals only support small groups when those small groups agree with liberal principles. That’s why liberals will support the Ground Zero Mosque but fight tooth and nail against a religious monument at a public cemetery.
