The Obama Mandate: The Gravest Threat to Religious Freedom in 226 Years

Amen. Sad that the GOP really doesn't give darn about much more than it's elitist power and the almighty buck. What is in danger, first and foremost, is our freedom, religious and otherwise. Our nation has so strayed from God that it openly boos God at the Democratic convention and it yawns. The "opposition" GOP yawns not caring a hoot about those pesky social issues which are our weak underbelly and the very target of the socialists who are way ahead in how to take apart a free nation. While we count our money, they are counting the abortions, the broken homes, the pornography, the children who are morally corrupted by the very elders that ought to be protecting them from filth. America is near her final days and we too yawn!

A liberal reporter speaking at a conference in Georgetown recently dismissed conservative alarms about the Obama administration's mandate that forces religious institutions--like Catholic Hospitals and Evangelical colleges--to provide coverage for drugs and procedures that can abortions and that effect sterilizations. "What about the anti-Catholic Bible riots in Philadelphia in the 1840s," she asked. Those led to scores of people actually being killed. Those Bible riots were deplorable, a blot on American history. But they were not the acts of the federal government. They were lawless violence, not a deliberate policy of oppression.
