ObamneyCare© Mecca

We've noted before that certain religious groups have been granted ObamaWaivers© as regards the (Evil) Individual Mandate. Exactly how that's legal has been unclear, though.

Until now:

"[ObamneyCare©] uses the Social Security language of the Internal Revenue Code to determine who is eligible for “religious conscience” objection to the insurance mandate."

That is, since Moslems consider insurance as "haraam" (forbidden), they're not going to be required to buy health insurance. Other religions, including the Amish and Christian Scientists, are also being given free passes on the Mandate.

I find this fascinating: after all, mandate is defined as "[a]n authoritative command or instruction." I googled around, and couldn't find it defined as "[a]n authoritative command or instruction. Unless it's inconvenient or offensive."

Funny, that.
