“In recent days, Americans of every faith and political persuasion have mobilized in objection to a rule put forward by the Obama Administration that constitutes an unambiguous attack on religious freedom in our country.
“This rule would require faith-based employers — including Catholic charities, schools, universities, and hospitals — to provide services they believe are immoral. Those services include sterilization, abortion-inducing drugs and devices, and contraception.
“In imposing this requirement, the federal government has drifted dangerously beyond its constitutional boundaries, encroaching on religious freedom in a manner that affects millions of Americans and harms some of our nation’s most vital institutions.
“If the president does not reverse the Department’s attack on religious freedom, then the Congress, acting on behalf of the American people and the Constitution we are sworn to uphold and defend, must.
“The House will approach this matter fairly and deliberately, through regular order and the appropriate legislative channels.
“Because it has primary jurisdiction on the issues involved, the Energy & Commerce Committee is taking the lead on the legislative process that will be necessary to enact an effective and appropriate solution. Chairman Upton convened a hearing last year and began laying the groundwork for legislative action when this flawed rule was first proposed. I welcome his efforts to consider all possible options as his committee proceeds with its work.
“This attack by the federal government on religious freedom in our country must not stand, and will not stand.”

……And this national saga continues.
“The backlash continues to grow against a new federal law that requires all employers to pay for health insurance that includes birth control. Archbishop Timothy Dolan speaks to the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts about the controversy.”
And this backlash will continue to grow, not just by those who are Catholic, but Christians, other faith groups, and people of good will who DO NOT WANT to see the United States Constitution tramped down even further.

“NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Catholic leaders upped the ante Monday, threatening to challenge the Obama administration over a provision of the new health care law that would require all employers, including religious institutions, to pay for birth control.
As CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reports, it could affect the presidential elections.
This UNHOLY WAR against the Roman Catholic Church in the United States of America has been joined by the leadership of the Eastern Orthodox Churches, a number of Protestant Churches leaders, Orthodox Jewish organizations have weighted in as well in protest. Even both American Muslims and GOP/Republican USA Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said he is very much opposed to this ruling by both President Obama and Health and Human Services head Catherine Sibelius.
IMHO, President Obama made a very, very big mistake, in picking a fight with a major faith community in which I am a member of. The Roman Catholic Church in the United States has not only for many years run hospitals which serve the general community, but also places of learning from nursery school to graduate schools, plus also agencies which help those in need. Why go after those institutions which have done the greatest good in America? All this will do is simply lost for the Democrats the Roman Catholic vote, but other Christians vote, and even the general faith communities vote as well. This should be a wake-up call that if the President Obama White House can go after the Roman Catholic Church in the United States, than it will do the same for all other faith-related institutions.
This could even not only work to help in the need for Christian unity, but also help to end divisions among Roman Catholics who are liberal, moderate, as well as conservative.
Also this is simply a violation of the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution as well and will only in the end backfire against the President Obama White House and the Democrats in general come in the November 2012 President election year.
Video added in on this subject about the Catholic Church in the United States, the Obama White House, and the GOP Presidential race.
“Under the new health care law, the Obama Administration said religious hospitals, colleges and other institutions must provide contraception in insurance plans. And, as Wyatt Andrews reports, that has set off a firestorm among Catholics and in the GOP presidential race.”
