This directive is coming from the top. The Pope Benedict himself is directing Catholic affiliated charities to stop funding abortionists and promoters of this and other activities which are directly against the teaching of the Catholic Church.
This further validates the boycott against the Catholic Campaign for Human Development by Catholics who are concerned about the manner in which their charitable funds are being spent.
This directive also has practical application to individual Catholics to direct their charitable activities and giving wisely.
Obama’s Department of Injustice has argued for the HHS mandate, against plaintiffs who cite that it violates the First Amendment of the Constitution. It holds that a privately owned company cannot exercise the religious beliefs of its owners in the business activities of the corporation. The Obama administration argues that it has authority to compel any privately owned corporation to do anything which the government demands, no matter how it violates the religious ethics of the company owners or employees. Legatus, an association of Catholic business leaders, Weingartz Supply, an outdoor equipment supplier, and Hobby Lobby, a large retail chain are among the filers of 28 separate lawsuits which challenge the HHS mandate in court.
Shop at Hobby Lobby! They’re now the largest privately owned company to sue the Obama administration over its Health and Human Services Mandate. David Green, the CEO and founder of Hobby Lobby explains that he will pay 1.3 million dollars in fines if he refuses to buy insurance that covers types of birth control that Evangelical Christians oppose. The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is providing legal representation in this challenge to the HHS Mandate.
Prayers for the success of Mr. Green and the Hobby Lobby Corporation in their efforts to defend religious freedom.
At 2:09 of this video is the pertinent exchange in which Obama reiterates his stance that employers and all insurers must provide birth control, abortion, and sterilization, regardless of their religious convictions. He has exempted only actual Churches from this, forgetting that people practice their religion outside of worship services. (Note that when speaking of this, the actual services are disingenuously lumped under the misnomer, “contraception”.
There are dozens of federal lawsuits based upon the violations of human rights, that are expressed in the Sebelius HHS Mandate of Obamacare. At issue is its funding of birth control, sterilization and abortion, by forcing people to pay for it in violation of their religion. Obamacare also provides these services to minors without parental consent. Alliance Defense Fund has a fact sheet explaining these aspects of Obamacare.
Both the Beta and the marketed version of the Birth Control Gurl program are equally worthless with respect to output content, but as you can see below, Kathleen Sebelius, the Beta version, delivers the output haltingly as though there is a misconfiguration of the audio output device driver.
Watch the fun as Congressman Trey Gowdy questions Sebelius on her efforts to examine the constitutionality of the HHS mandate.
People probably didn’t take this video too seriously back in 2009, when they were still hoping for that hopey changey thing from Barack. Now that Obama is forcing birth control abortion sterilization down everyone’s throat, the premonitions of Michael Voris are worth reviewing.
Listen to this Catholic Priest take on Obama, his Abortion Addiction, and his birth control / abortion / sterilization mandate. Pray for the continued safety and well being of this courageous individual, Father Sammie L Maletta, of St John the Evangelist Parish in St. John Indiana.
This analogy between faithfulness to the religious restrictions against eating pork, and that against artificial birth control / abortion / sterilization is particularly apt, because it shows governmental coercion, and management which is closely analogous to the Obama mandate, and his so-called compromise.
Followers of ANY religion, and those concerned with personal liberty would be well served by taking the time to read Michael Stokes Paulsen’s analysis.
