The Obama administration has declared war on religious institutions. In January, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that ministers can't sue their churches claiming discrimination under federal employment law. The Obama administration sided with the woman, a teacher and minister, who sued her church after she was fired. "The First Amendment bars government interference in the authority of a religious group to determine for itself who will minister to the faithful," the opinion states.
Obamacare dictates religious institutions must provide insurance coverage for sterilization services, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs. This is contrary to the First Amendment. The uproar from all faiths was unbelievable. Obama back-tracked; he doesn't have a clue regarding policies of the Catholic Church. It wasn't the cost, but the mandate to provide insurance coverage that goes against their religious beliefs. Insurance companies must now provide these services free.
Obama declares war on the poor and middle class by not allowing the Keystone Pipeline. This project would furnish oil from Canada, reducing dependence on the Middle East and Venezuela. Some estimates put the number of immediate jobs at 20,000 and permanent jobs at 100,000. His actions affect Democrats and Republicans as oil prices continue to escalate, affecting all goods, services and utilities. How much does it cost to fill your tank? After waiting three years for Obama's approval, Canada decided to sell its oil to China. Whom would you rather buy from? The Middle East, Venezuela or Canada? Call the White House with your response.
