Link - Surviving Obama's Left Hook

Link – Surviving Obama’s Left Hook

          Recently President Obama has reinforced his commitment to the Health and Human Services’ contraception mandate as part of his health care “reform.”  I first wrote about this issue in my post The Fugitive Slave Act, 2011.  This blatant attack on religious freedom seems to be directed intentionally and specifically at the Catholic Church.  Thankfully the bishops’ responses have made it clear that the Church has no intention of sacrificing our consciences to this President’s whims.  At the link below, Charles Colson emphasizes the importance of civil disobedience against unjust laws and attempts to inspire all Christians to stand with the Church in fighting this one.  Who knows which of our basic freedoms will be in the crosshairs next.
