Hey Democrats – No ObamaCare for Muslims…guess you pay their share

The new Obamacare legislation that was forced on unwilling Americans this week specifically mandates that we all purchase health insurance. That is, unless you don’t believe in that sort of thing. That’s right, the current health care bill contains a clause which exempts certain individuals form the requirements and penalties set forth in it.

Senate Bill, H.R. 3590, pages 273-274

There are several reasons why an individual could claim exemption, being a member of a religion that does not believe in insurance is one of them. Islam is one of those religions. Muslims believe that health insurance is “haraam”, or forbidden; because they liken the ambiguity and probability of insurance to gambling.  This belief excludes them from any of the requirements, mandates, or penalties set forth in the bill.  Other excluded groups include Amish, American Indians, and Christian Scientists.

Since Obamacare is not restricted to persons holding US citizenship, what logic is there in restricting the religious exemption to citizens of the United States? This would seem indicate that a Christian Scientist.,Amish or Muslim who is a US citizen can apply for exclusion, but those who are green card holding US residents are not permitted to apply for exclusion.
