Notice the feminine form of the noun "villain" in the header. A blogger by the name of Ron Conte sets forth the hypothesis that the real driving force behind the HHS mandates that seek to compel religious employers to violate their own consciences may be Kathleen Sebelius rather than Barack Obama. You may read it for yourselves on his blog.
I certainly think it's a plausible theory. Without proof, it remains a theory. Moreover, ultimate responsibility still rests with the Messiah Most Miserable, since he would have had the authority to stop the mandate in its tracks. So he at least allowed it to go through for his own reasons.
