Skip to comments.Catholic bishops sound battle cry for religious liberty

Liberals are waging a war on Christianity. This is the real reason why the Catholic bishops this week filed lawsuits against the Obama administrations contraception mandate. The Catholic church realizes religious freedom is at stake. If the courts dont overturn President Obamas authoritarian regulations, America will slide toward secular tyranny.
On Jan. 20, the Health and Human Services Department issued a mandate compelling nearly all religious organizations including Catholic hospitals, universities, schools and charities to provide their employees with free birth control, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs. This is a direct assault upon the conscience rights of numerous Christian groups, compelling them to violate their central religious beliefs or face massive penalties. The HHS ruling was clear: comply or go out of business. The Obama administration is striking at the very heart of the First Amendment. It is an unprecedented attack on religious liberty. Our Founding Fathers must be rolling in their graves.

No doubt there is a war on Christianity, I’m with the Catholics on this.
If they’re serious about resisting, then I’m with them.
What is needed in 2013, but will not happen under Prez Mittens is a wholesale statutory reduction of executive powers. Hussein has become tyrant in all but name. Next year will be the last chance to correct the awful precedents and Constitutional abuses of Baby-Doc Obama.
Will the Mormon Willard Romney be any different ???
He waged war on Catholic hospitals in Mass and wanted them to abort unborn babies...
The war has been going on since Voltaire whose godlessness resulted in the French Revolution—this radical egalitarianism and “social justice”. It is evil. The 1800’s German Postmodernists (Marx included) killed off God and destroyed Christianity in Europe-—ushered in all the godlessness of Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pot etc. which killed millions of men women and children.
Virtue is necessary for any freedom. All intellectuals knew that since Plato. That was the most important and only reason for schools—even in the US.
The Cultural Marxists in America devised curricula to destroy morality (that means the Christian Church)—destroy the natural family by destroying the marriage “contract”, Just laws, and knowledge by injecting stupidity in the school curricula and throwing out the Classical Education which teaches the greatest ideas in the history of Western Civilization. Up until the Postmodernists—all great literature pulled men up from the sewer. After they got ahold of the publishing houses they glorified “literature” and curricula forcing it into the canon of ALL univeristies—such vulgar evil ideas of The Beats, (hanging boys with erections) and glorifying sodomy) the pedophile and evil Kinsey doing sexual experiments on children, etc., to destroy morality in the masses. Promotion of vulgarity by government (obscenity laws were removed by The Beats) and you get vulgar, worthless people who can’t process any information and does not value high culture. It destroys high culture and an interest in intellectual pursuits. It all is about base urges and instant gratification.
John Dewey destroyed the McGuffey curricula—put in his Fabian Socialist Progressive curricula which is designed to destroy Virtue (BK Eakman and many others). It is all intentionally to kill God and destroy the family unit so children can be molded by the state—slaves.
Christianity is responsible for individualism—the fundamental principle in the Constitution. Can’t have that in a collective where you need to be able to kill off the useless eaters and have to keep them dependents and slaves.
You can have no Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry’s to disrupt the control of the masters. God creates the idea that there are no masters of man on earth—we are responsible for ourselves and families—never government.
