Why should it surprise anyone that Barack Obama, the most radical pro-abortion president in history and the equally radical pro-abortion HHS secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, are attempting to impose their moral values (or more accurately, their lack of moral values) onto nonprofit Christian organizations that operate from a foundational belief that abortion is the murder of an unborn child?
Obama's health care plan requires religious institutions that believe abortion is murder to provide insurance that covers contraceptives that induce abortions to their employees. These religious groups are rightly outraged by a government that is mandating them to violate their consciences or face prosecution. And adding insult to injury Sebelius, in a condescending attempt to mollify the outrage of those whose consciences will be violated by compliance with this law, has exempted them from having to comply with it for an extra year. She states: "I believe this proposal strikes the appropriate balance between respecting religious freedom and increasing access to important preventive services."
How magnanimous of her! She's giving those who believe abortion is murder an extra year to live according to the dictates of their consciences before having to choose whether to cast their faith to the wayside and embrace the evil of abortion or endure the wrath of a government that's increasingly coming under satanic influences.
Persecution is inevitable for those who have committed themselves to faithfully living out the truth as revealed in the Bible regardless of the cost. Get ready. The price is about to go up.
