This Shall Not Stand!
The U.S. Supreme Court recently provided a ruling to uphold the Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as Obamacare), failing to stop the Health and Human Services contraception mandate. This act greatly affects American health care with implications that go beyond what first might be evident!
Since the beginning of the year, weve provided insight, news and analysis regarding the intense battle over religious liberty the freedom to practice our faith in accordance with the teachings of the Church. But many in the secular media and, unfortunately, too many Catholics have criticized those who are in opposition to the HHS mandate.
For Christians, however, the central purpose of political activism in a free society is to create a safe environment for people to love and serve God and one another. Freedom is worth having; therefore, it is worth defending. The National Catholic Register supports the same freedom of this basic Christian concept to create a safe environment for people to love God and to be able to practice their religion as they see fit.

“This will not stand” must mean “we are going to actively work to defeat Obama” (because negotiations are pointless and Barry is NOT backing down on this)

I am curious to see if Catholic hospitals will refuse to trash their belief in the sanctity of innocent life.
It’s about to get real. Does the Catholic leadership mean what it says, or will it fold? If it folds on this question, Catholicism will be exposed as simply another big business using it’s religious status as a tax dodge.
The only Catholics that would vote for Obama are Catholics that do not live according to the teaching of the Catholic Church. In otherwords the hypocrites. Abortion and homosexual “marriage” are not negotiable. No compromise.
The muslim Obama is for these abominations. Faithful Catholics that attend Mass regularly DID NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA.
Are Protestant hospitals exempt from your judgement here?
As far as I know (and I would be grateful for correction or for additional information) the number of Catholic institutions actually participating in federal lawsuits against the Obamacare anti-conscience mandate is:
Not that it's "enough," but it's MOST OF the resistance.
I would love to see other Christian (and Jewish) institutions step up and do something. Honorable mention goes to Richard Land of the Baptists, and Bishop Matthew Harrison of the Lutheran Church/Missouri Synod, who have made very strong statements against the mandates.
But who else? Who stands with us?
Do you sense my anxiety here?
Let’s not forget that the Catholic Church was practically the only faith in the country that came out against Roe v. Wade when it was passed in 1973. Most protestant demoninations
saw nothing wrong with it. The Episcopal Church still sees nothing wrong with murdering the unborn.
