Bureaucratic Despotism or the Constitution
Was the headline for discussion, at a very prominate study group on the Constitution.
When I saw this headline, I truly was surprised. Never has this group had such a troubling headline statement. But I can certainly agree with that premise, especially after what the Obama Administration has done regarding MY FREEDOM OF RELIGIOUS CONSCIENCE!
It seems the Catholic Church as been given a one year extention, to adjust to the idea that they will now be forced to pay for non Catholic employees and patients, abortions and whatever sex provention Government requires for OBAMA CARE.
This after the Pres. swore to Bishop Dolan, and others, who ask him to re-evalute the mandate..as a violation of Christian conscience. Obama said he would, and then shortly after giving his word, Health and Human Services issued the year extension.
Not exemption, extention. This, no matter what faith you believe, or even if you dont believe, is a very serious action. Remember it has NOTHING TO DO WITH ABORTION! It has to do with mandating a private entity Catholic Hospitals, Universitys, etc..to violate their religious RIGHTS! What about FREEDOM OF RELIGION? Or is this MORE FREEDOM FROM RELIGION.
Let me state I am against abortion, because I believe CHRIST IS THE WAY.. THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE! Abortion in my conscience..in MY VALUES and PRINCIPLES is against MY GOD. But I am in no way enforcing MY BELIEFS on others. At one time in my life, I drove a friend to a clinic for that proceedure. Freedom belongs to each individual and their conscience, and relationship with GOD. But now we are being denied our freedom of CONSCIENCE...not to mention that Im sure if this continues..Catholic Institutions who have help millions of people of all faiths, will now have to be forced to only treat their own. They will be forced to let go, employees who arent Catholics, so that they wont have to be forced to violate their PRINCIPLES.
Between the mandate of forcing people to purchase Healthcare under the Commerce Clause..want it or not! Which can not be likened to State Drivers licenses which only are mandated because WE WANT TO DO SOMETHING..LIKE DRIVE! We are slowly having REALLY IMPORTANT RIGHTS TAKEN AWAY..and WE ARE HEARING VERY LITTLE ABOUT IT!
It goes back to when you ask GOVERNMENT FOR YOUR RIGHTS..THEY can in a mischaracter of justice..deny you your GOD GIVEN RIGHTS! In this case they are enforcing SECULAR BELIEFS AGAIN, WHERE THEY DONT BELONG..NOW WE HAVE JUST THE REVERSE! WHY IS IT NOW OK..for GOVERNMENT TO ENTER CHURCH TO CRUSH ITS CHARACTER BY FORCE?
I believe, this should make us all fearful of where this agenda wants to take US!
