Our religious liberties are being crushed by the latest health care “mandate” from the Obama administration. Will future generations cite the signing of ObamaCare as that moment in time when Americans were no longer “Citizens” and became “Subjects,” once again subservient to a tyrannical government?
Please read my very important update below – Mat
“They said it would never lead to rationing. But rationing is already here. Under the latest assault by the Obama administration, they are rationing our rights.”
My friend and colleague, Ken Blackwell, and his co-author Bob Morrison, recently made this astute observation concerning ObamaCare in an article posted on CNSNews.com.
Ken and Bob got right to the heart of the matter in saying…
“The HHS mandate will force us to violate our consciences and provide drugs that can cause abortions. To us, killing unborn children at any stage is never health care. It is a grave sin.”
++This latest “mandate” is a grave national sin, indeed.
Barack Obama is literally forcing insurance companies and self-insured religious organizations to provide contraceptives and abortifacients to Americans who want to pay for neither.
As I told you on Friday, President Obama has once again grossly overstepped the constitutional authority of his office. Thankfully, it appears that Americans have finally had enough.
Former Attorney General Edwin Meese, a leading member of President Ronald Reagan’s Cabinet, recently said the Obama administration is “…as close to a monarchy as there’s been since the days of George III.”
In reality, our situation today may be even worse than during the founding era since King George III merely TAXED the goods that inspired the Boston Tea Party. Even so great a despot as he did not imagine he could FORCE the colonials to BUY the stuff!
So Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison beg the question:
Are we no longer “citizens” in the eye of the Obama administration, but, in fact, “subjects” to an autocratic President who has trampled the Constitution, seized power far beyond his office, and imposed “mandates” that differ little from dictatorial commands?
If we bow to the Obama administration’s dictatorial mandates, which are void of Constitutional authority, then we have, in fact, become “subjects” to an oppressive regime unlike any we have yet seen in American history.
I’m pleased that Blackwell and Morrison didn’t stop with calling out the Obama administration for their subversive activities – they (rightly) called for a counter-assault…
“This HHS health care mandate is the gravest assault on religious liberty in American history. We must legislate against it. We must sue in federal court. We must line up behind the twenty-six states that are already challenging ObamaCare in federal court.”
This is why our sister organization, Liberty Counsel, continues to fight ObamaCare in the courts. Next month oral argument on the law’s constitutionality begins at the Supreme Court.
This is also why Liberty Counsel Action is calling on tens of thousands of concerned Americans to tell Congress to override Obama’s mandates through legislation. As of this writing, over 55,000 Liberty Counsel Action team members have signed our petition to stop Barack Obama’s subversion of our religious liberties and conscience rights!
But even this impressive show of strength is not enough. We need at least 100,000 outraged Americans to sign this petition – and I pray even more will join us in the next two weeks.
, this is truly a moral imperative! Please click here to add your name to this crucial petition:
++People from all faiths are denouncing this attack on religious freedom and freedom of conscience.
All 181 Catholic Bishops in the United States and numerous leaders from other Christian denominations have taken a stand against this latest ObamaCare mandate.
President Obama’s dictates have not only stretched the Constitution – they have broken it! Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) recently declared that the Obama administration “has become a lawless administration.”
When a President refuses to enforce the law of the land, he has broken faith with his oath of office. He has become a lawbreaker –in this case, the broken law is the Constitution of the United States.
++Legislation is emerging to correct this alarming situation.
Right now in Congress, there are three pieces of legislation making their way through both Chambers that can counter the “contraceptive and abortifacient mandate.”
Liberty Counsel Action is supporting the passage of any or all of these bills – which will likely be reconciled into one bill if the individual measures pass their respective Chamber.
I am calling on you to take a minute to tell your elected officials to pass one or all of these bills! This is extremely important!
I URGE you to take action with us and sign Liberty Counsel Action’s petition to stop Barack Obama’s subversion of our religious liberties and conscience rights. With your help, we will be delivering multiplied tens of thousands of petitions to key Members of the House and Senate next week.
Please, click here to read a synopsis of the three pieces of legislation, review a recent article from Mandi Campbell, LCA’s Director of Public Policy, and to sign our vital petition:
, I am simply asking you to sign a petition to STOP President Obama’s mandates BEFORE we are forced to make even more difficult decisions!
This latest unconstitutional mandate is simply one of many that have taken place over the three years of the Obama presidency. Mandi’s article lists TEN such abuses – and there are many more not listed!
Please, click here to add your name to this critical petition, which will soon be delivered to Capitol Hill, and read Mandi Campbell’s excellent article:
Are we “Citizens” or “Subjects”? If we fail to stand against Obama’s unconstitutional and tyrannical actions, we won’t like the answer to that question.
God bless you for standing with us!
