Re-elected, Obama takes aim
at religious liberty

Washington Examiner, by Timothy P.Carney

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 11/12/2012 5:21:54 AM

As an old saw has it, "your right to swing your fist ends at the tip of my nose." The Obama administration says your right to live as a Christian ends if you go into business. Democrats are crowing about a second Obama term, and the Left´s culture-war troops are emboldened by their trouncing of social conservatives. Religious conservatives need to plant their spears and brace for the coming federal assault on religious liberty. The Obama administration this month, in defending its health plan´s contraception mandate, articulated a narrow view of the First Amendment´s religious liberty protections.

Comments:
I wasn´t aware of all the nasty comments from tolerant liberals from Mother Jones, The WaPo religion writer, etc. We´re allowed to believe ( for now), just don´t talk about it, because our belief offends liberals. We are in for some dark days ahead, which makes Christian support of Obama all the more baffling.

The morning after the election three black ladies stood in the office of my school and sang, "Let the church say Amen, God has spoken", over and over and over. I was absolutely disgusted - then I thought, yes, God has spoken, but I don´t think He said what they think He said.

How "church" people can support a party that stands against so many biblical principals and stands against our religious liberties is beyond me - they put skin color above all else - and I wonder just how many of the black churches really teach Rev. Wright´s theology!!!

I used to help one of the women with her many church projects (designing and printing labels, invitations, tickets for fund raisers, etc.) and donate all my time and materials - guess what - NO MORE!!! This showed me what I was contributing to and it ENDED WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOV. 7.

Cry me a river. The so-called faithful voted for an anti-religious candidate and the lunatic social conservatives gave the Senate back to Harry Reid. At least the Islamicists live the courage of their convictions. No wonder Muslims are gaining converts throughout Europe. Next up, the Catholics will cut a deal on Obamacare. Sure, they´ll have to perform abortions and euthanize the elderly and sick, but then they´ll be able to concentrate on what is really important - social justice.

This has been coming since the passing of Obamacare. Now the Catholic Church will be forced to decide whether their schools and hospitals will obey the dictates of this law or whether they will surrender their beliefs.

Cardinal George in Chicago pointed to the diocesan directory with pages listing charitable institutions saying those pages will be blank unless the mandate is overturned. I would hope he sticks with this. Obama may want to take over all charitable work but it will have all the success of the green economy ( Solyndra etc ) Even if the government buys out all the Catholic hospital facilities at a discount price they can never operate them as efficiently because there is no substitute for dedication. Put a Unionized Civil Service staff running the hospitals after they manage to run the post office well. This is another part of Obamacare with coverage for all and treatment for none.

Liberals, we´re prepared to die for our cause of liberty and freedom. Are you prepared to die for your desire for tyranny? I doubt it.

I think I´m leaning to the position of #4.

By the way, how many Catholic politicians have paid any price for their support of abortion?

Wish you knew who you were supplying the free goodies to prior to the election.
But all of us are suckers in one way or the other. My tithing decreased significantly to our parish when we realized the majority went to social justice programs for the "inner cities" who in turn are spreading propaganda to the minority communities. Our money will go directly to a person or family that we can help immediately. Christmastime gives us alot of openings to do just that.

maybe if the 19,650 people who voted for Obama over Romney in Philadelphia were not guaranteed their "goodies", they would think twice about who their vote goes to. Let them figure out where their next handouts will come from.

Arizona tribe set to prosecute

On Pascua Yakui Indian Reservation, Ariz. — Tribal police chief Michael Valenzuela drove through darkened desert streets, turned into a Circle K convenience store and pointed to the spot beyond the reservation line where his officers used to take the non-Indian men who battered Indian women. “We would literally drive them to the end of the reservation and tell them to beat it,” Valenzuela said. “And hope they didn’t come back that night. They almost always did.” About three weeks ago, at 2:45 a.m., the tribal police were called to the reservation home of an Indian woman who was allegedly

More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country. School leaders say they´re seeing a 41 increase in teacher resignations over the same period last year, and teachers

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

Rights to family land may

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

TCM at 20

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Accused O.C. killers likely

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

   

 



 
White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
