With every passing day, President Barack Obama and his administration make Hugo Chavez look like a choir boy. His latest mandate on health care insurance for contraception and other measures contrary to our moral conscience is a serious denial of our First Amendment rights and religious freedom.
To quote Cardinal Timothy Dolan, "This latest erosion of our first freedom should make all Americans pause. When the government tampers with a freedom so fundamental to the life of our nation, one shudders to think what lies ahead."
George Washington in his farewell address said, "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports." Daniel Webster said, "I am committed against everything which in my judgment may weaken, endanger or destroy the Constitution and especially against all extension of executive power."
Thank God for our forefathers, who had the wisdom and intelligence to hand down this document.
I hope all Americans of whatever religious persuasion or belief will stand firm and united in their opposition against this blatant disregard of our First Amendment rights and religious freedoms put forth in our Constitution.
