The Obama campaign is on the march this morning, liberally treading on our liberties and discriminating against religious Americans -- in a masquerade of gender "rights." I started to rewrite the text in the form of a response, but doubting the efficacy of such a response, I quit. There must be something better we can do and do something, we must. But what?
If you're a Catholic, who do you think should have control over your conscience. You or the government?
Barack Obama apparently thinks the Catholic church has the right to teach the tenets of its faith from the pulpit, but Catholic institutions (such as hospitals and universities) - and all Catholic individuals who happen to be employers - have no right to put those teachings into practice, no right to express their conscience in their dealings with employees. Barack Obama has ordered, through the Department of Health and Human Services, that Catholic employers participate financially in birth control, pay for "morning-after" pills and sterilization procedures for their employees.
Tomorrow morning, Senators Roy Blunt and Marco Rubio are putting a bill on the floor of the Senate to allow all employers -- not just religious organizations -- to deny insurance coverage for birth control and any other medical servece they find morally objectionable.
If this bill does not pass, you can thank Barack's Almighty-Government (BAG) agenda.
I'm not just sending this email to Catholics. This is an issue for everyone: We're not about to sit back and let liberal extremists tread on our religious liberty.
Stand for any person's right to make his or her own religious decisions.
.... It doesn't stop at birth control. BAG could also deny the rights of Jews to perform circumcision, the rights of Muslims to separate by gender, the rights of Seventh Day Adventists to observe the Sabbath, and possibly even the singing of Christmas carols....
.... Now the Senate is voting on whether employers should be forced to commit what they might consider a mortal sin. Tell them we all should be able to make our own religious decisions, according to our conscience.
