It was all easy to dismiss when Obama and his band of merry liberals came for rich people, or banks, or small businesses, or countless others who depended on liberty to exist and thrive.
How about when he stripped the religious freedoms of the largest denomination in the country, 25% of Americans- Roman Catholics?
I don’t often talk about my faith in public context, for no particular reason- perhaps because I often felt protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. But now that Obama has chosen to disregard that one (along with the 2nd, 4th, 10th and others), I have to say something.
It’s my faith he’s trampling. This time he came for me.
The funny thing is, Obama’s liberals are trying to say this doesn’t matter- polling says it doesn’t. He’s trying to minimize this, without understanding the fundamental issue. It’s not contraception. It’s religious freedom.
You simply cannot force people who do not believe in something for reasons of conscience to do that thing. That is the reason Mohammad Ali couldn’t be forced to go to Vietnam- government does not have the power to compel citizens who conscientiously oppose something. Not only will the Supreme Court strike this down- probably unanimously- but Obama just handed Republicans a major issue by reminding voters, especially Moderates and Conservatives, what they don’t like most about him: his overriding tendency to abuse government power to force policy down the throats of the unwilling.
It’s in his DNA. He can’t help it. He can’t stop trying to force his Socialist beliefs down the throats of American citizens and businesses.
This time, will Americans be wise to it? Will Americans stand up to defend their most basic rights and freedoms against a government clearly out of control- or will they sit back and let Obama turnthem around and do this to them one more time?
Even if you’re not a Catholic, just remember… next time he could come for YOU. Help us make a stand here. Contact your Congressman, Senators Webb and Warner, Tim Kaine and George Allen, and the White House and tell them to stand up for Religious liberty.
