For years the cultural left with media assistance has made the expession of religion difficult in the public sector; not only in education venues, but in the private sector as well. Under the cloak of separation of church and state, the suppression of religious expression was the end result. Now the attacks have escalated directly to religious organizations under the banner of health care reform and reproductive rights.
Abortion is being used as a wedge and weapon through the term “contraceptive care” upon religious groups that have high standards for the sanctity of life. Not only does the cultural left want unrestricted abortion for the individual, but they now want to force religious organizations to comply even though it undermines the tenants of faith.http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/politics/2012/February/GOP-Join-Fight-against-Birth-Control-Mandate/
Even though it is a clear attack on the First Ammendment of the United States Constitution which directly restricts abridging the freedom of religious expression, the cultural left has historically showed a disdain for religion and will stop at nothing to have their way and to force their way on others too.http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/02/the_lefts_hatred_of_religion.html
The democrats voted as a block to stymie a provision to the mandatory health care provision that forces all organization to offer contraceptive services; even the controversial abortion drugs that clearly are an affront to the core values regarding the sanctity of life. A religious exemption was offered that would allow religious organizations to opt out. The liberals flatly denied the compromise even though the Obama Administration offered a religious exemption as a compromise after receiving severe criticism.http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/politics/2012/March/Senate-Vote-Looms-on-Birth-Control-Mandate/
As conservative bestselling author Ann Coulter pointed out in “Godless: the church of liberalism”, these counterculturalists are more interested in saving a tree than preserving the life of an unborn child. Now they are not satisfied with individual abortion on demand, they want to force anyone with religious convictions against abortion to forcibly participate.
The deception doesn’t just stop here with attempting to sneak abortion practices through. Even though Obama signed an executive order forbidding the use of taxpayer money for abortions, the recently released data on ObamaCare clearly mentions abortion over 40 times in a provision that does make public funds for abortion available.http://aclj.org/obamacare/obamacare-abortion-funding-rule-finalized
The cultural left seizes any opportunity to liberalize anything, including the tenants of faith of Catholics, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus or Muslims which go back thousands of years. These intolerant hypocrites think everyone needs to comply with their paganistic god of human secularism. If a religious organization does not comply with demands to change, then a method is invented to attack the core beliefs….as the “choice” smokescreen is being currently used to force contraceptive compliance.http://www.worldviewweekend.com/worldview-times/article.php?articleid=2062
Republican hopeful Mitt Romney and key leaders of religious affiliates have declared that the current attacks against religious liberty are the biggest challenges to religious freedoms in the history of our country. As a precedent setting legalistic system, a crack to the First Ammendment can then be used to water down the freedoms established in the Bill of Rights, particularly the religious clause.
The watchdog media has turned into a lapdog of the cultural left that really believes you cannot discriminate against Christians or those with religious beliefs. This is why the media has been sleeping at the wheel while the biggest affronts to constitutional freedom have been taking place during this administration. What ex-President George Bush did is nothing compared to what is transpiring currently…and Bush was shrilly roasted by the media for expanding governmental powers.http://nextooze.com/finance-examiner-in-national/president-obama-signs-executive-order-allowing-for-control-over-all-us-resources
The Obama Administration was already chided by a vote of 9-0 by the US Supreme Court for trying to dictate the eligibility of ministers to file exemptions on taxes, which clearly attempted to overstep the boundries set by the constitution for the government. The most liberal judges on the court collectively rebuked the attempt to meddle with the First Ammendment. The mandated contraceptive provision being attempted oversteps the government’s authority even more and will undoubtedly receive the same treatment from the nation’s highest court.
Forcing citizens to take part in ObamaCare is another issue under review by the Supreme Court as the socialists are using health care vehicles to water down the constitution. It will put half of America under a mandated governmental program which is the goal of socialism and that is to put everything under governmental control.
This is the USA….not the USSR.
