The New War on Religious Liberty

Welcome to the real ObamaCare! The Obama Administration is imposing its views on all Americans. If the Obama mandate for contraception remains intact, then liberals may next demand that Americans pay for other objectionable items under the guise of "health care," such as sex-change operations, late-term abortions, and embryonic stem-cell use, and a variety of other procedures that many Americans do not support and certainly do not want to pay for. Obama’s mandate for abortifacient drugs opens a slippery slope that would reduce the moral authority of religious institutions in America.

Just recently, the Obama Administration forced the Air Force's Capabilities Office to strike the Latin word for "God" from its logo. Since schools seldom teach Latin any more, I wonder how many realized what this meant.

At the Veterans Affairs Department, Obama's agents banned Military Honor Details from reciting the significance of each fold of the American Flag during the burial services of our heroic men and women who gave their lives for our country. Obama said the ceremony promoted religion and therefore the recitations had to stop. Obama gave a speech at Georgetown University, a Catholic college. But he ordered his staff to cover up a crucifix with a giant black tarp because he didn't want anybody to see a religious symbol while he was talking.

Obama has joined in the war against religion being waged by the ACLU and the atheists in the courts. We've all heard about the lawsuits attempting to delete "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance and remove Ten Commandments monuments and crosses from every public place. Less well known, but important in the big picture, is a judge's decision to ban a football coach from bowing his head during student-led prayer before a game.
