"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;......"
For those of you who were educationally abused in our sham of a public school system, the above is the Estabishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment . It is one of the most important thoughts ever recorded in human history. This tiny little sentence fragment of a mere sixteen words makes America....well, American.
See, ladies and gentlemen, the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses do more than protect religion from the intrigues of government, regardless of what the commies at the ACLU would have you believe. The Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses protect the individual's right to think for himself, since following a religion is the most personal (and important) decision an individual will ever make in his lifetime.
Chairman Obama's recent attempt to force the Catholic Church to pay for contraception is more than a malicious, bigoted attack on religion. (Which is horrying in itself, might I add.) It is an attack on the individual spirit. It is using the power of the State to impose its own warped version of morality onto the individual, which is a tactic of choice for genocidal maniacs the world over. Lenin did it, Hitler did it, Stalin did it, and Mao did it. Millions died horrible deaths because they did.
And now, our President Barack Hussein Obama, is attepting to do it.
This cannot stand. If you have the least bit of a desire for freedom, you must oppose this. I don't care if you're Catholic or Protestant. It doesn't really matter if you're a Jew of the Sephardim or Ashkenazim variety, or whether or not you're Greek Orthodox, (No, I didn't forget a certain religion. It's the only one The Regime finds acceptable, and is therefore safe.) you must fight this or any other version CONgress comes up with with every fiber of your being.
The right of you to be you is at stake.
what do you expect the Kingdom of Antichrist to do?
My guess is that they’ll wrap this up in another bill and keep quiet this time.
“Kingdom of Antichrist” ?
Can I steal that ?
The religious diktat from Obama/HHS is the spawn of Obamacare. It was a tactical mistake, he should have waited until after his assumed win in November to reveal the mailed fist. Unlike pubbies, the Catholic Church is not rolling over.
Give Chairman Obama another term and . . .
Government is the religion of the fascists.
“Give Chairman Obama another term and . . .”
No argument here.
Why aren’t the Republicrats like Boehner doing anything about this? Is he too busy with his day job to attend to this minor issue? The candidates are doing well to make an issue of it, but the MSM is strangly silent about this and our elected senators and reps aren’t doing much ...
The Weeper of the House would rather surrender, as would Minority Leader Mitch McConman. The GOP-E doesn’t fight, it folds.
Chairman 0bama’s War On Religion And The Individual
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;......”

The Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses protect the individual’s right to think for himself, - since following a religion (or not) is the most personal (and important) decision an individual will ever make in his lifetime.
Thanks, Absolutely Nobama. I added the “(or not)”.
0bama is not just forcing his will on the Catholic Church he is forcing it on everyone. The mandate is for all insurance policies to provide coverage for abortions and abortion-inducing “contraceptives.” That is backed up by the mandate in 0bamaCare that everyone must buy insurance. Catholics are not the only ones whose conscience won’t permit them to participate in the murder of the unborn.
I couldn’t agree more.
We are witnessing one of the ugliest moments in American history.

Short, simple, to the point and absolutely true. I'd also add Hindus, since at least until a few years ago, there were as many of them in the US as the "other" "religion" and generally they are strong social conservatives although for some reason I cannot fathom many vote D (shudder).
0bama is just beginning his attacks on religion, freedom of speech, thought, association and conscience. Someone wrote yesterday (I'll try to find the thread and quote it) that either 0bummer knows he'll lose and is therefore going for broke, or he's planning to be 0bummer for life and is therefore going for broke. Either way, if those of us not on his side do not actively fight back, we deserve what we're going to get.
". . . some key [events] exacerbated the national debate, fraying trust, and national cohesion just a little more each time . . . The two-party system that had governed America . . . begin to fall apart . . . interest in politics took the place of all other forms of news-related entertainment . . . politicians were the celebrities . . . [Politics/ideology] was becoming such a habit, the reactions so automatic, that [journalists] taking sides on every news story became inevitable."
.. no wait! My mistake I just learned that this is from for Love & Liberty by Robin Young and it's about 1857 America at the start of the administration of James Buchanan. My mistake.
But while I'm at it.. what the hell.
"[T]o placate the Southern wing of his party Buchanan passed over some of his powerful Northern political supporters and allies who had expected to receive cabinet appointments, appointing instead a majority of slaveholders, he essentially surrounded himself with a majority of men who had no stake in the Union."
or the Obama version..
"[T]o placate the ultra-left wing of his party Obama passed over some of his powerful moderate to conservative supporters and allies some of whom expected presidential appointments, appointing instead a majority of blame-America-firsters, he essentially surrounded himself with a majority of men and women who had no stake in the United States of America (at least as She had been for 200+ years)."
That means that the government is selecting specific religious institutions to bestow its favors upon, according to their willingness to submit to government decrees, creating government-approved religious institutions. That is exactly what the establishment clause is meant to prohibit the government from doing IMO.
By that precedent the entire Bill of Rights can be overthrown and made into the Bill of Government-Approved Privileges. One legal precedent does lead to another.
