President Obama’s attempt to wield his pen like a hammer and crush our First Amendment Freedom of Religion should be a wake-up call for all Americans. This November more than ever in our history, the First Amendment of the United States’ Constitution is being put to the test. We as Catholics have never voted as a solid bloc, but I feel this year we must. While there are many issues of concern that face our nation, the decision by Obama and others in Washington to ignore the First Amendment Freedom of Religion clause and force us to provide contraception coverage in our Catholic institutions should lead every American to shudder! If the Obama Administration is allowed to squash the First Amendment, which Right is next to fall? (Actually, Obama has already attempted to squash Freedom of Speech by advocating “no protest zones” any time he or the Secret Service should deem that protesters are “threatening” – without defining what constitutes “threatening”.) Today, Cardinal Dolan announced a series of lawsuits against the Obama administration’s attempt to violate our TRULY constitutional right of Freedom from government intereference in our beliefs. We MUST put the preservation of the Constitution above any other concern. Please view the attached video and vote this November for the Constitution.
This says it all! Very poweful. Hope all Catholics see it and respond.
Your blog is excellent. Thank you Fr. Carrozza for speaking the truth so clearly and powerfully. Pres. Obama has shown himself as a bully for sure. We do need to stand strong together in our Catholic faith. The video is a perfect addition. I love it! What Spirit and may we all be filled with the Fire of the Holy Spirit to vote for our Freedom, Our Constitution, Religious Liberty, Marriage of one man + one women as God Our Father created us, protection of God’s precious unborn and end of life etc. May the laity stand faithful and strong with our Holy Father, Bishops and Priests. Yes it will be remembered for eternity!
