Posted on 07/02/2013 2:43:01 PM PDT by Olog-hai
An open letter signed by leaders representing numerous religious denominations, including Catholics, Baptists, Anglicans, Lutherans, Mormons, Jews, Hindus and Scientologists, blasted the Obama administrations Health and Human Services contraception mandate as a coercive threat to religious liberty in the U.S., one which puts the administration in the position of definingor casting asidereligious doctrine.
The letter, entitled Standing Together for Religious Freedom, was released Tuesday at the National Press Club by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Southern Baptist Conventions Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, which are spearheading opposition to the HHS mandate.

Now the IRS knows who to go after . . .
I know Catholics and Baptist are opposed to abortion, and Catholics artificial birth control as well but I did not know the other two are opposed to either.
Complaining about it is one thing. But when this callous, self-absorbed administration ignores you, what are you going to do? Are you prepared to man the barricades? If not, then save your voices for sermons.
Is this going to be covered anywhere but FR? I’d be surprised...Fox, maybe.
Ping for later
First they came for the Catholics, and I said nothing because I was not a Catholic....
I should have expanded, the ‘huh’ was in reference to what I said in relationship to what you said.
Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod President Matthew Harrison signed the letter, as did NALC Bishop John Bradosky.
We need to show Our Reptilian Masters in Washington that we will not cooperate in any way in this State-sponsored Culture of Death. We will not do it; we will not pay for it; we will not cooperate "under protest," we will not enroll in these plans, and we will not pay fines!
They can jail us and seize our assets. But we will not cooperate with Obama-Sebelius or Moloch-Baal.
Obama keeps saying, deviously, that he supports "Freedom of Worship." It's devious because the Constitution says, not merely "freedom of worship" (something you do inside your sanctuary, inside your house or inside your head.) It's called the "Free Exercise of Religion." That means you're allowed to put it into practice OUTSIDE, in the real world, in the way you come and go, in the way you stand up and sit down, in the way you run your business, in the way you live your life.
Don't shut down Catholic institutions. That's preemptive surrender. Obama wants to shut down Catholic hospitals. That's the end-game; it's what it's all about.
Just refuse and resist. We need bishops in jail.
I'll go, too.
That is the true spirit of Resistance, and the sentiment that must pervade our ranks if we are to prevail.
Save a cell for me, sister. Or a spot beside you on the wall.
Proud that my Church, LDS Church, participated. A very powerful statement from all of these clergy. I’m proud of all of them!
I’m proud to note that my Church participated. Go Thetans!
Xenu! Xenu! He’s our man!
