Why religious freedom is so important?
A call to action.
As this election approaches the economy seems to be the biggest topic everyone is focusing on. The tragedy in Benghazi also seems to be a growing issue and one the President is trying his hardest to avoid. There is however, another issue, that must be addressed, or should I say readdressed. Earlier this year it was brought to many people's attention that all businesses including religious organizations would have to provide insurance coverage for birth control.
The main religious organization that this would affect is the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church is against the use of any type of birth control. I understand that many of you probably don't see the big issue in using birth control. I am not writing tonight to debate or argue about whether birth control is right or wrong. We can save that for another day. Tonight I am writing to you about the current administrations belief that it can bully and force a religious organization to do what they want it to do. Last time I checked the first amendments stated that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. Seems to me that Obamacare is violating the first amendment.
The reason this is so important is that one of the first steps any administration or leadership takes in becoming a Socialist nation is to completely eradicate, or at the very least deeply weaken the influence of religion, especially Christianity. Therefore, it would only make sense that the first branch of Christianity the Obama administration would seek to weaken is the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church is by far the largest and most influential Christian faith in the nation. Christianity and the Catholic Church have constantly stood as a beacon and voice for freedom of people. It would violate the very nature of Christianity to believe in Socialism.
America finds itself at a crossroads this election. We can stand up and say that we believe in the first amendment of our Constitution and our forefathers, or that we believe one administration has the right to tell a free nation what its religions have to believe. This is not an issue about what your beliefs are. I am not writing this tonight to argue that with you. We need to come together, and with one voice tell President Obama and his cronies that we will not let them take away our basic freedoms and rights. Remember, the great thing about our nation is that we do have a chance, nay a responsibility, to stand up for each other when our rights are being violated. Let us stand together on Tuesday, and let the President know we do not appreciate our rights being violated.
