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.

Last year, President Obama's Department of Health and Human Services issued a regulation, under Obamacare, requiring that almost all health care plans in the United States must provide coverage, without any fees or co-pay, for sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs.

Obama was boasting about this regulation last week.

At no time has he offered to exempt from it those individual Americans whom he has put in the position of needing to choose between obeying his bureaucratic mandate and the teachings of their faith.

Since Obama's administration first issued this regulation, America's Catholic bishops have forcefully and unambiguously declared it an "unjust law."

"A human law has the character of law to the extent that it accords with right reason, and thus derives from the eternal law," says the Catholic Catechism, quoting St. Thomas Aquinas. "Insofar as it falls short of right reason it is said to be an unjust law, and thus has not so much the nature of law as of a kind of violence."

Yes, Obama's sterilization-contraception-ab ortifacient mandate is "a kind of violence."

"If rulers were to enact unjust laws or take measures contrary to the moral order, such arrangements would not be binding in conscience," says the Catholic Catechism. "In such a case,'authority breaks down completely and results in shameful abuse.'"

Yes, Obama's sterilization-contraception-ab ortifacient mandate is a "shameful abuse."

Archbishop Timothy Broglio, leader of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese for the Military Services, succinctly explained the evil of Obama's regulation in a letter he asked Catholic chaplains to read to U.S. troops attending Mass in January 2012.

Obama's regulation, Archbishop Broglio said, "strikes at the fundamental right to religious liberty for all citizens of any faith."

"It is a blow to a freedom that you have fought to defend and for which you have seen your buddies fall in battle," the archbishop told the troops.

"We cannot we will not comply with this unjust law," he said.

Many other bishops said these exact words in letters to their own dioceses: "We cannot we will not comply with this unjust law."

Him being pro choice! Do you think it was solely aimed at one particular religion or group.?
It has to be at the discretion of the single person, on which path to take regarding this subject matter.
Often times abortions are a form of birth control for many which is a sin!!!
That's what I fear with this liberal insertion in the ACA.

Obama hates people who, in his words, cling to their guns and Bibles, instead of clinging to him the failed pseudo-Messianic figure to his non-White and Gay Base.

Its time to stand up to this narcissitic man child from Kenya / Kansas.

narcissistic man child. I've used the narcissistic in my own descriptive language of it but I like the addition of manchild. Equally, truthfully fits.

Obama doesn't see the problem with Catholics supporting abortion and contraception since he considers himself a Christian and he strongly supports those things (abortion, contraception) as well as gay everything.

As a liberal Obama's ideas don't have to be rational such as his strong support for gay rights as well as his strong support for Islam when Muslims are still putting gays to death in nations like Yemen, Saudi Arabia and such.

a thug muslin POTUS in office

however yesterday WW2 vets crossed Obama's barricaded line, and 7 Rangers allowed it.

Pale you think the military is going to back your side in a revolt?

Yesterday should prove differently.

Obama scrambled Army Rangers to protect entry to WW2 monument. 7 of them which is 3 more than Benghazi.

In Benghazi the 4 died, and in Washington DC the allowed trespassing to hundreds, while ordered to keep all trespassers out.

As all you say the GOP will be held responsible, know that is just a fantasy of liberal fools.

Obamacare is communism. It was not voted on by the people.

The supreme court determined obamacare as a tax was constitutional. The people say F U, we are not paying.

In August 2013 alone, more people renounced their citizenship to the USA in a month, than collectively all 8 years of Bush.

as time passes, People are getting wiser.

the frozen debt ceiling will really show the pettiness of Obama & party. Fun to watch and record for future campaign ads.
