Skip to comments.A Video for BELIEVERS in Faith and Freedom OF Religion

My wife and I are more fall-away Catholics that have not attended a mass for decades. The reason for the video is our objection to Obamacares mandate that we feel violates the United States Constitution, Article 1 or Amendment 1 if you prefer. The very first sentence of it is quite clear.
The Government shall NOT establish a religion (Like the King of England did) nor favor or promote one religion over another. I trust we agree on that. The second part of the first sentence is also very clear and says Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, [Obamacare is law passed by Congress] or PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF;
This video points that out. Many religions believe as a canon of their church that life begins at conception and marriage should not be redefined to mean anything other than between a man and a woman. If people dont agree they can exercise their freedom of religion and move on to another church or belief. People even kiss poison snakes as a matter of faith and some states have banned that. I believe it is their right to do it and is protected. [Darwin Award Candidates for sure though].
The Catholic church has 7 Sacraments, one of which is Matrimony. I wish the video didnt even use the word Marriage since the church DOES NOT perform marriages. The church administers the Sacrament of Matrimony. A justice of the peace can do marriages.
Forcing the Catholic church to pay for insurance to pay for contraception and abortions violates the 1st. Amendment.
I hope youll agree with us that forcing ANY religion and their members to go against their religious teachings and beliefs is unconstitutional and once started, will only get worse not better. Whats next? The books we read or what we say over the internet?
Have a good day.
The Constitution, the words, seem pretty clear to all but those who want it to say something else.
“The Constitution, the words, seem pretty clear to all but those who want it to say something else.”
I agree totally and unfortunatly “those” includes the USSC and Federal Court Judges that hate religion of any kind and rule that way.
They talk about the economy, jobs, freedom, ....life, from conception to natural death, socialized medicine, the gay agenda. Are they saying you should not vote because Romney is not for protecting innocent lives from conception to natural death and for gay adoption, he stands by socialized medicine. He’s moving left so what else will he need to reveal about his leftist views to win? ....just wait.
Thanks the HD version is much better
