The current battle between the Obama Administration and the Catholic Church is not just about the Catholics, or any single religion, nor is it about contraception, abortion. This is an intentional direct assault on our rights as defined in the First Amendment!
We have allowed the Administration to frame this issue as an “Attack on Religion.” The media have picked up the ball, defending the Administration (please raise your hand if you are surprised?), and demonizing (pun intended) the Catholic Church.
President Obama is not stupid. This was the plan all along. He realized that if he made the Catholics appear to be the bad guys, that the shrill, yammerheaded lemmings (make that read “Liberals”) would whine, and cry out, Women will suffer! ” “The callous and uncaring Church would deny women their RIGHTS to insurance that would pay for contraception and abortion!” “The evil Religious Right!
The President realizes that, if he wins this battle, under these terms, it will be almost impossible to repeal Obamacare, thus tarnishing, if not destroying his legacy. A win here would almost certainly activate the Liberal voters, and set us up for another four years. Imagine another Obama presidency…
If he is successful in this encroachment on religious rights, and in re-election, what will be next? Freedom of the Press? Freedom of Speech? There goes the entire First Amendment! If we lose the First Amendment, we lose the ability to speak out against any outrage. Period. So, he hides the real issues behind this fight with the Catholics.
So, call me a conspiracy theorist. You would be wrong, but I will that bear that mantle, if necessary. Just think about it, though. Examine closely what you know about this President. His divisive strategies. His secret dealings. His apologies to those who would see us destroyed. His propensity toward destructive deficit spending.
Do you really believe his intentions are pure? Can you look me in the eye and tell me that he would not assume the role of despot, and that his present policies are designed to lead anywhere else?
You there! Yes, you-sleeping in the back! Wake UP! Stay after school and clean erasers! Now, pay attention!
The path to tyranny in this country, will be slow and painstaking. Sudden changes lead to revolution. Remember that Britain spanked us hard and often. Sudden change is intolerable. But we have already accepted several incursions on our rights, as clearly defined in the Constitution.
Zig Ziglar tells a story about a frog. If you throw a frog into a pot of boiling water, he’ll leap right out to save himself. What you do is put him into a pot of cold water, and gradually raise the heat. By the time he realizes the water is boiling, he squats to jump, but gets cooked in the squat. Think about it.
