Defend Your Religion from Attack: Administration Seeks to Replace the Teaching of Religious Leaders
Bloggers and Personal ^ | 7 Feb 12 | Xzins

Posted on 02/07/2012 9:17:58 AM PST by xzins

Despite a nine to nothing Supreme Court ruling against the Obama Administration last month in which the court ruled that a church decides who its leaders should be and not a government gone wild, the Obama Administration is back at it.

This time the administration is telling Catholics that in their various organizations they can't observe ancient church teachings on sexuality and procreation. That is bad. But it gets worse.

They have sent out their apologists in government and media to convince Catholics that government teachings about CHURCH beliefs are correct, and that the Catholic Church is a bit out of step. Nancy Pelosi has gone so far as to say that the Catholic Church is not anti-abortion and that she "stands" with her fellow Catholics on this issue. USA Today says that Catholic women stand with the Obama Administration. CNN says that most Catholics don't stand with their bishops.

The battleground is certainly contraceptive and abortion services, but make no mistake about the war. This is leftist government versus religion. It is not hard to imagine Moscow versus Wojtyla.

And it's not hard for this protestant pastor to realize that socialist humanism is attempting a huge power grab against our Roman Catholic brethren. This should be a wake-up call for even marginal Catholics...and even for marginal Christians of any variety. What kind of churches will we have if the government can interpret its teachings? What freedom of religion do we have if the government can dictate how we practice our religion?

This is clearly a time to fight, and Roman Catholic leaders are fighting.

We must pray for them, for them to be guided by the Almighty, for them to be victorious in this struggle.

Hear our prayer, O Lord.

Notice the silence of the NAE on this. A seat at Obama’s table is very costly!

Saying
“no” to the spirit of the age
and
“yes” to the Wisdom of the Ages
has
been a true gift to my wife and I.

Welcoming seven children into the world and rejecting the empty “happiness” mantra has provided amazing joy to us.

I weep to think that I am passing the baton to my children in circumstances where such choices may be illegal.

If this Obama mandate wins out, then it won’t be long before people will be penalized for
having children too soon (as defined by the state),
having too many children (as defined by the state), and
having defective children (as defined by the state).

After all, if everyone gets
“free” contraception and abortion,
then there is no excuse for
having children too soon,
having too many children, or
having a child with defects.

In another day, I would laugh at your statement, but in this period of our time, I weep because I see it is true and valid.

All of us Christians should join in this fight against a godless government. May the Lord be with us to lead and protect us in this endeavor to save the sanctity of life. Nothing is more critical than this.

It amazes me that we Evangelicals will tke a pass on an important issue like this forgetting that we have colleges and seminaries as well as non-profits like Samaritan’s Purse and Voice of the Martyrs that will be impacted.

In China, the government picks the Christian leaders. Obama admires the Chinese.

This is one reason the American expectation that employers provide health insurance is so crazy. There is no sane reason for an employer to be required to provide health insurance. If they weren’t, they’d just be giving that money back as pay, and the employee could buy their own plan privately.

But, I agree, and it will get worse. They’ll include sex change operations, cloning, fetal cells...you name it...as it becomes available.

“In China, the government picks the Christian leaders. Obama admires the Chinese.”

You said a mouthful. And next on the administration’s agenda...
