The president, his party, liberal pressure groups, and their allies in the mainstream media (MSM) are hammering on the theme that the Obama Mandate is all about women’s reproductive health.
They know it’s not.
You know it’s not.
Everyone knows it’s not when you get free contraception by walking into Planned Parenthood, or even to many community action agencies.
The issue is about freedom. Rick Santorum has been eloquent in his defense of our religious freedom.
Barack Obama wants to take it away.
You may agree with Mr. Obama’s social policies. You may like Obamacare. You may like his foreign policy. You may like the way Bin Laden was killed on his watch.
Fine. But it doesn’t mean anything if we are forced to give up the most precious right enshrined in the Bill of Rights, freedom of religion.
It’s not a gift. It’s a right, the first right mentioned in the Bill of Rights.
I don’t care if you’re an atheist, no one can take away our religion freedom, no one. That is what the president and his party have put into action with the Obama Mandate.
I call on the president to waive the one year phase-in period and begin enforcing the Obama Mandate now.
Let the American people watch charitable institutions like Catholic Charities go bankrupt.
Let the American people see bishops carted off to jail.
Let the American people see the carnage caused by the man with the Napoleonic complex sitting in the White House.
Let them see all of this before they cast their vote this November.
The stakes are higher than they have ever been. I know there are folks with fuzzy religious values who are scratching their heads wondering why so many of the faithful like me are worked up about all of this. So let’s enforce the Obama Mandate now to crystalize the reality.
Let the Catholic hospitals expel their non-Catholic patients. Let the Catholic hospitals and schools fire all of their non-Catholic employees, for that is the only way they can avoid violating their religious convictions according to the narrow exemptions imposed by Barack Obama.
Their only other options are to be fined, go bankrupt, or close.
The Obama Mandate has nothing to do with women’s reproductive health. That’s a con.
It’s all about freedom.
