    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    AUL Fight Continues with 14th Brief

    While we have our own fights in opposition of Obamacare and the federal government intrusion and overreach, there are others who are fighting it on different fronts.

    Americans United for Life is defending First Amendment Freedom of Conscience rights in an another amicus curiae brief filed in response to Obamacare's mandates. In its 14th brief defending conscience rights in light of Obamacare's mandates, AUL argues in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that the Obama Administration's "HHS Mandate" violates the First Amendment freedom of conscience by forcing employers to provide insurance coverage for life-ending drugs and devices--without regard to the employers' freedom of conscience or their religious beliefs.

    Our insurance plan has this mandatory provision and expense.  Strangely, it is in-your-face in bold letters as well on the policy information. (perhaps as a service from our insurer - to rile us up?)  

    AUL President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest says:

    "Forcing Americans who do not support an abortion-oriented political agenda to pay for and comply with the HHS Mandate is anti-American.  AUL has outlined and advocated for life-affirming healthcare throughout this entire process. Real healthcare respects life, rather than punishing citizens who refuse to comply with an abortion-oriented agenda."

    AUL's brief was filed in Eden Foods, Inc. v. Sebelius, a case filed by Eden Foods, the oldest natural and organic food company in North America, and Michael Potter, the founder and sole shareholder of the company.  Motivated by his faith, Potter has refrained from paying for surgical abortions, contraception and life-ending drugs and devices in the company's health insurance coverage.  Eden Foods filed a lawsuit to protect its conscience rights when the HHS mandates were issued.

    In March of this year, a federal judge in Michigan denied a preliminary injunction to Eden Foods and Mr. Potter, a decision that forced them to comply with the unconstitutional HHS Mandate.  They appealed to the Sixth Circuit.
