Our Liberties Are Under Attack




June 19, 2012






Dear Friends,

Christianity and our religious liberties are under attack by the Obama Administration. While the conscience mandate, which requires most Americans to have health insurance plans that cover all FDA-approved contraceptives and sterilization procedures, including abortion-inducing drugs like Plan B and Ella, is the latest assault on our religious liberties, it certainly is not the first.

Some actions Obama has taken against religious freedoms include:

·       Obama several times omits the phrase "the Creator" when quoting the Declaration of Independence.

·       Obama rescinds the Bush conscience protections for health care workers.

·       Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups. This will force religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to their faith and eliminates longstanding conscience protections for hiring.

·       Obama directs the Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act.

That's why Concerned Women for America is joining the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to promote our religious liberties during the Fortnight for Freedom. The Fortnight for Freedom begins Wednesday, June 20, and will culminate on Independence Day.

We are calling on our members to act during this two-week period to protect the most cherished of our liberties - our religious freedom. The following is a partial list of activities:

1) Call your representative and senators on June 22 and ask them to support efforts to protect religious liberty and to oppose the HHS mandate.Please click here to find your Members of Congress.

2) Pray for the protection of our religious liberties and for our country's leaders.

3) Send out a tweet or post on Facebook "I Stand for Religious Freedom" on July 4 at noon EST.

4) Share this alert with your friends and family and urge them to take action too. 5) Place this in your Church bulletin!

Our religious freedom, which is at the very root of American freedom and democracy, is under siege. Act now to protect the bedrock of our society! As Thomas Jefferson said, "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have."

God bless you,
