Freedom of Conscience Violation

Alright folks, here is where we get to work.

Perhaps you read the press release from the USCCB last week regarding new federal regulations that would force insurance plans to cover "all Food and Drug Administration approved contraceptive methods, sterilization procedures, and patient education and counseling for all women with reproductive capacity" (as a complete aside, why does the term "reproductive capacity" conjure up images of the Alien movie series?)

This is a very serious new federal regulation that would rob people of their religious freedom. Very. Serious.

We, as citizens of this great nation, still have a chance to voice the truth to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services if we respond by September 30th.

Please check out this link on the USCCB website for more information and instructions on how to effectively make your voice heard.

Consider this very true statement by Blaise Pascal-

It is as much a crime to disturb the peace when truth prevails as it is to keep the peace when truth is violated. There is therefore a time in which peace is justified and another time when it is not justifiable. For it is written that there is a time for peace and a time for war and it is the law of truth that distinguishes the two. But at no time is there a time for truth and a time for error, for it is written that God’s truth shall abide forever. That is why Christ has said that He has come to bring peace and at the same time that He has come to bring the sword. But He does not say that He has come to bring both the truth and falsehood.”

Well said, Mr. Pascal. Well said......

Let's do this, folks.
