War on religious freedom

Regarding the Obama administration’s announcement Friday that all religious organizations will have until August 1, 2013 to provide free sterilization and birth control to their employees:

 

U.S. President Barack Obama’s declaration of war on religious freedom is becoming more bold and militant by the day.

The Obama administration’s decision to force faith-based entities like hospitals and universities to provide employees with free sterilization and abortifacient birth control drugs as of August 1, 2013 is literally unconscionable.

To force American citizens to choose between violating their consciences and forgoing their healthcare is as much an attack on access to health care as it is on religious freedom.

When a government or any democratic majority approves a law that forces one to violate their conscience it is the duty of every human being to oppose it. While claiming to be respecting of one’s freedom of choice, such lawmakers are really only leading people away from the true freedom which the natural law provides.

Obama, with his anti-life legislation, is not competent enough to head a family let alone a country. I hope voters will remind him of this in November by making him a one term President.
