- Speaker of the House of Representatives
- United States of America
When the Pilgrims first settled in what is now the United States, they did so to escape the British governments control over their religious liberty. Our forefathers maintained that we are born with unalienable rights that come from God, our Creator, and not the government as witnessed in the First Amendment.
President Obama and the HHS are trying to force religious organizations to go against their religious beliefs and provide services they believe are immoral and sinful. They have given people of faith one year to compromise their ethics and morals or be in violation of the law.
Irish Statesman Edmund Burke said "There is but one law for all, namely, that law which governs all law, the law of our Creator, the law of humanity, justice, equity — the law of nature, and of nations." He further states, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
I am asking for men and women of faith, men and women of conscience, men and women that still believe in our Constitutional Rights, to stand together. Whether you believe in contraception or not is not at issue. Rather, it is whether you believe that the Government has the right to choose what you do regardless of your beliefs.
It is said that there are over 60 million Catholics in the USA. I am setting a goal of only ten percent of them to stand up and be counted. That's 6 million signatures.
I hope that all Christians and people of all faiths recognize the HHS mandate and it's weak attempt at a compromise as an assault to our religious freedom and stand with Catholics as fellow Americans in outrage. If this is allowed to continue, it is only the beginning of the loss of our freedom to our government.
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND BE HEARD!
In closing, St. Teresa of Avila said, "Christ has no body but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks Compassion on this world, Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good, Yours are the hands, with which he lesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
Yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours, Yours are the eyes with which he looks Compassion on this world. Christ has no body now on earth but yours."
I Support the Roman Catholic Church's right to Religious Freedom!
I stand against the HHS Preventitive Care Mandate.
I stand against the Federal Government's refusal to consider the moral guidelines that religious men and women live by.
I support the Catholic Bishops in their brave efforts to stand up to the HHS, the President of the United States and special interest groups to have the mandate repealed.
I reject the notion promoted by the HHS, Planned Parenthood, the National Organization for Women and other pro-abortion special interest groups that claim contraception is health care. They de-value motherhood and the family and promote promiscuity.
I support the Bill introduced by Senator Rubio, S.2043 -- Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 2012, providing religious conscience protections.
I call upon all members the United States government to do their sworn duty to uphold and protect the Constitution, particularly the 1st Amendment, guaranteeing our right to Religious Freedom.
