The current Obama administration has continued to lie about their support of religious liberty. Just ask Hobby Lobby who was attacked on three fronts.
1) It is a for-profit corporation
2) It isn’t a church and thus not a true “religious employer”
3) It is wrong on the science about certain birth controls
I do not mean to attack the Obama administration as if I am a Rush Limbaughite. Honestly, I have no hope for either political party, thinking they are all corrupt. You may think I am a glass half empty kind of guy but you would be wrong. I don’t even think there is a glass to fill anymore. So back to the main point.
As the leaders go so go the country. We are seeing religious freedom erode away faster than a mudslide during a hurricane. Recently the state of California has ordered all insurance plans in the state to immediately begin covering elective abortion. That isn’t some sort of birth control, that is straight dismemberment abortion. This means that churches are required to provide their employees with abortion coverage!!! When will it stop? Next they are going to tell us we can't preach against abortion or homosexuality. Oh wait....yea...that's right....THEY ALREADY ARE SAYING THAT.
Thankfully we have friends like Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) and Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF) who have already filling complaints and will hopefully battle the in court. So what will be the response of the courts? Christians need to pray because if we do not then the churches will be forced into a hard position of giving up insurance or sanctioning murder, the very thing, lets hope, they preach against. The church has got to come out of her cave and begin to fight the culture war. When we lose our religious freedom we won’t be able to preach the Gospel. So here is what you can do
1) PRAY, PRAY, PRAY
2) Support Alliance Defending Freedom (including financially)
3) Write letters to your local officials explaining the Christian position and asking them to take a stand for religious freedom
4) VOTE for those who truly support our Constitutional rights
Would the liberals in this country tell the Muslims they had to support something which contradicted their religious convictions?
