The Fallopitarian Church is outraged that its hospitals and universities are required to insure employees' prostates. "The prostate is the devil's gland!" "This is an attack on religious freedom!"
But many of their employees see things differently. College of the Holy Ova - Janitor: "I'm not a Fallopitarian -- I just work here! Are you sure my insurance won't cover a doctor visit for my cantaloupe-sized prostate?" Nun: "SATAN!"
Pundits try to turn the dispute into an election-year wedge issue. PROSTATE-GATE. "Why is Obama trying to ram prostates down the throats of the faithful?"
Obama holds a special "Prostate of the Union" address to defend the policy. "When churches enter the public world of business, they have to follow the same rules as everybody else!" Nun: "That's what someone with a prostate would say!" Bishop: "Turn off this filth!"
