[A]round the world[,] freedom of religion is under threat. We see governments engaging in discrimination against the faithful. We, therefore, believe in the inherent dignity of every human being dignity that no earthly power can take away. And central to that dignity is freedom of religion the right of every person to practice their faith how they choose and to do this free from persecution and fear. [H]istory shows that nations that uphold the rights of their people including the freedom of religion are ultimately more just and more peaceful and more successful. Nations that do not uphold these rights sow the bitter seeds of instability and violence.
These powerful words could have been spoken by a minister. Or by an advocate for the two corporations, Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, now pressed by the government to provide abortion-inducing contraceptives under the Affordable Care Act. Or by the authors of one of the 59 separate friend of the court briefs filed in their landmark case that will be heard by the Supreme Court on Tuesday.
They werent spoken by any one of them. Rather, they were uttered by President Barack Obama at last months National Prayer Breakfast.
Herein is the paradox at the heart of the high court case, Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby, pitting the divisive Affordable Care Act against many religious organizations, leaders and First Amendment advocates in this country. Why, when the president so highly praises religious freedom, is his administration so hostile to the free exercise of religion?

The US government has declared war on Christians. Their actions and deeds prove that. Either the Christians stand up and fight, or submit and die. The time to turn the other cheek has passed. Events throughout the world prove that the Christians are being systematically slaughtered, just like the Jews were during the 20th century, including up to this day. Die on your feet, or die with a muslim sword to your throat, your choice.
Christians are getting harassed because of the devil’s hate of God. Christians should buck up and start praying audaciously to turn back the devil’s hateful work.
The answer has been obvious since the communist druggie was still a long-shot candidate in early 2008 - he's lying. Obama says whatever his handlers tell his teleprompter will poll the best. It's all misinformation and disinformation to keep us calm as America's most dangerous enemy consolidates power.
Obama pretends to honor the values that many of us really do honor in order to trick us into believing it's just a difference in perspective that can be worked out in a civil manner. There is nothing civil about a man who would kill another man's soul as Obama is attempting to do with the owner of Hobby Lobby. There is nothing honorable about a man like Obama who uses pretty words in praise of freedom as a tool to destroy freedom. This is a battle between good and absolute evil, and so far evil is winning.
Why are contraceptives the government’s business?
this case determines whether this federal gub mint can make you disregard your religion if you are Christian.
Hey feds, F you.
