Since the Warren Court came into being six decades ago, the Supreme Court has usurped that power — to remake America. And the American people have meekly submitted to its tyrannical rule.
Yes, Virginia, there is a religious war going on. It is for the soul of America. And traditional Christianity is besieged.
In a January visit to the Vatican, American bishops were warned by Benedict XVI that “radical secularism” posed “grave threats” to their Catholic faith. Your religious freedom is being circumscribed, said the pope. The U.S. government may seek to force you to collaborate in what are “intrinsically evil practices.”
No sooner had the bishops returned home than President Obama instructed them that, under Obamacare, all Catholic schools, hospitals, orphanages, nursing homes and homeless shelters must provide the “morning after” pill, contraceptives and sterilizations for all employees, Catholic and non-Catholic alike.
The Church was given 18 months to comply.
Should Obama’s order stand, the Church will be forced by the state to adopt practices that it has always taught are immoral and to engage in acts it believes are intrinsically evil.
Welcome to Obama’s America.
