IT AFFECTS ALL CHRISTIANS AND PEOPLE OF FAITH NO MATTER WHAT THEIR DENOMINATION.
Pray to GOD to remove and take out these demonrats in office.

Obama, Sebelius, and the rest of the Democraps trying to destroy the First Amendment and our rights to Worship God as we see fit. D4mn them to he11 that are trying to deny Americans their Rights.

Beginning now, with the opening of government-run health-insurance exchanges, President Barack Obama will be prohibiting American Catholics from practicing their faith in the way they live their daily lives.

This is an act of tyranny. Yet, many Americans in positions of public authority and influence have greeted it with silence and inaction.

I do not use the word tyranny lightly here. Obama is abusing his power as president to unilaterally impose on Catholics — and millions of other Americans who share the Catholic moral view on certain matters — a regulation that forces them to act against their moral convictions and the teachings of their faith.

He has declared war on their souls.

The Catholic Church teaches that sterilization, artificial contraception and abortion are intrinsically immoral and Catholics cannot be involved in them.

Congress: Obamacare Assaults Religious Freedom

http://blog.heritage.org/2013/06/15/congress-...

Obamacare’s threats to religious freedom were denounced on the floor of the House of Representatives this week.

“All we’re asking is to take us back to where our Founding Fathers had us from the beginning,” said Representative Diane Black (R–TN).“[P]eople came here to be able to practice their deeply held beliefs without having government intrusion.”

On August 1, however, government intrusion into the lives and faith of countless Americans will lock in. On that date, Obamacare’s coercive anti-conscience mandate will take effect in its final form, fully enforced against compassionate religious organizations, job-creating family businesses, and countless other Americans.

At the renewal of their health plan years, employers will be forced to provide or facilitate coverage of abortion-inducing drugs, contraception, and sterilization—regardless of their religious or moral objections.

“No American should be forced to choose between their conscience and their livelihood,” explained Representative Jeff Fortenberry (R–NE) Wednesday night.“No American should be forced to choose between their deeply held, reasoned beliefs and the law.”
Yet that’s exactly what the mandate will do, forcing countless family businesses and charities to make impossible choices. Under the mandate, employers must either violate their deeply held beliefs by complying with the mandate, resist the coercive rule and pay fines of up to $100 per employee per day, or drop health insurance altogether—harming their employees—and pay a fine of roughly $2,000 per employee per year.

“These are not actually choices, but a top-down, burdensome Federal regulatory scheme,” declared Representative John Fleming (R–LA), one of the original co-sponsors with Representative Black and Representative Fortenberry of the Health Care Conscience Rights Act that seeks to protect Americans’ ability to live and work in accordance with their beliefs.

Formal houses of worship are exempt from the mandate, but countless other employers, such as schools, hospitals, social service providers, and family businesses must comply with the rule. Under the mandate, only those deemed religious enough by the Obama Administration are afforded true protection of their religious freedom.

As Representative Joe Pitts (R–PA) explained on the House floor, giving such authority to government officials is not conducive to protecting Americans’ fundamental freedoms:
The bureaucrats at the HHS may feel that they know what is best for all Americans, but being an American means having the freedom to decide on your own, to let your convictions guide your life. What kind of nation will we be when the IRS decides who gets to assemble, when the Department of Justice decides who reports the news, and when HHS decides what religious beliefs are worthy of First Amendment protection?

If Obama and obamacare is not stopped our Country will fall. If obamacare continues to stand then God will not support a Godless nation.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you don't like the country becoming more secular, go ahead and PRAY AS HARD AS YOU GODDAMN CAN FOR IT TO STOP. See how much that helps.

If one group looses its religious freedom, every group looses its religious freedom.

Perhaps one day atheist will once again be persecuted or burned at the stake just for being atheist (its happened before). Just about every religious group has suffered persecution at one time or the other in history.

(When I say atheist as a religious group, I mean any group that believes a certain way about any religious matter (even atheism). In that definition, we can count atheist as a religious group for the purpose of this debate.)

So, if atheist were wise to the ways of the world, they would not wish to see the Obama administration continue with its policy of eroding of religious freedom.

What ever happened to freedom OF religion? It seems now that it has become confused with freedom FROM religion. That's just not right. Sin all you want, but don't expect people to support your doing it. It has all become a matter of politics, just where it doesn't belong. I don't think the government has the authority to deny religion as they are trying to do. Keep in mind, our forefathers came to this country (then a colony) to escape religious prosecution. Now it has become the mockery and punishment of religion. As Hillbilly said, atheism is in itself a religion, albeit wrong, but shouldn't it be held to the same standards the government is trying to impose on us?

Ya know what? To claim to be a "free thinker", you are just revealing your gullibility to the mainstream (?) ideas you have been force fed lately. Get some life experience under your belt and realize that.

You're nuts...
Being a non believer there is no such thing as sin to me. Sin is nothing but a religious belief you subscribe to and you have no right to inflict your beliefs on me or anyone else.
You want to live your life by a set of your religious rules be my guest. You live YOUR life that way and leave other alone. Your religious freedom ends the second it infringes on my right to be free from religion.

And there is the answer to what is wrong with America today.

We have the socialist/atheist extremist crowd who think that there is nothing wrong with being wrong...because there is no such thing as wrong.

And once a person gets to that point of confusion, socialism, Obamacare, and all the other blatantly wrong things going on in America today, dont seem so wrong any more.

America has turned away from God, and stumbles now into a deep darkness. Lest we as a nation humble ourselves before Almighty God and repent, then the nation is doomed.

Blind leaders taking their blind disciples into the ditch.

They are willfully blinded by sin, their consciousness hardened as if with a hot iron.

Such as these will not hear the Word of God. They will not repent. They would rather attack those who try to help them. They hear only what they want to hear, and see only what they want to see.

Hard hearts, stubborn thinking, sealed up blind and deaf, as sheep led to the slaughter.

Such is our national condition today, as we are led bound hand and foot to our national day of reckoning for our sins.

The Blind leading the Blind.

Great, another religious fkn nutjob, you're exactly what is wrong with America today. The greedy self serving hypocritical religious fanatics who think their way is the only way and that they have the right to inflict their ignorance on everyone. They are so fkn full of themselves they are incapable of understanding anything that does not conform to their ways. They're like a little kid sticking their fingers in their ears yelling la la la la la.
Tell ya what, you wanna live the way your god intended then shed your earthly possessions, your clothing, and rip your eyes out cause last I checked if god has his way we'd all be running around naked and stupid. Shouldn't be hard for you, you've already got the stupid part down pat.
