I have given my political soap box a rest, but I simply cannot stay down for long. Neither should you. Oh wait a wild monkey minute, it’s Friday. Can you hear the band warming up? I hear a lot of clanging cymbals, tooting horns, and even some banging drums. There must be a masquerade party in town… Wanna come?
As we walk, let’s talk, shall we? We are spendthrift people, I mean we’ve gotta be in this blasted economy. I reckon a lot of us track our money on spreadsheets and jot expenditures down in checkbook registers. Perhaps we all have categories something like this:
Uh, wait a minute there Darlene. What’s up with that last category? I’m a Believer. I don’t partake in such things. And I surely wouldn’t admit to it on spreadsheet if I did. That last category has gotta be a mistake. You done gone and messed up, girl.
You are right, absolutely, one hundred percent correct. It is not right. So, what are we gonna do about it?
Beginning this week, regulators are soliciting suggestions from the public on how best to implement their anti-conscience mandate, a move that affords the administration the appearance of openness and progress, while in reality changing nothing. The administration still refuses to step down from their original demand that all religious organizations provide contraceptive, abortifacient and sterilization coverage “free” of charge-even if this goes against the consciences of the organization’s people. This comment period is essentially asking how you’d like your conscience violated.
The fact is a solution to the conflict has already been found. Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-Nebr.) has a bipartisan bill in the House that if passed would restore rights of conscience back to their pre-mandate levels. Unfortunately, the Obama administration is only pretending to hear suggestions rather than actually listening to solutions.
Join us in submitting a comment to the Obama administration with the message (suggested text below*) that you are tired of fake accommodations and ploys and demand real religious liberty protections. Submitting a comment will also signal to Congress and the media that you stand firmly on the side of religious freedom.

Of course, the greatest cost to Americans will be in human life, since the law now makes taxpayers unwilling accomplices in the abortion of millions of unborn children. As long as ObamaCare is celebrating birthdays, plenty of innocent babies won’t. Under rules just finalized by the Department of Health and Human Services, anyone enrolled with an insurance company that covers abortion will be reaching into their own pockets to help pay for it..(Tony Perkins of Family Research Council article: Obamacare in Two Deep)
