Democrats Attempt to Override Religious Freedom Fails

Cardinal George of Chicago said last week that our Constitutional Freedom of Religion was being traded off for lifestyle choices of sexual preferences (http://www.catholicworldreport.com/Blog/3253/cardinal_george_our_vaunted_american_liberties_are_all_being_traded_off_in_favor_of_freedom_of_sexual_expression.aspx ).  No place was that more apparent than in the Senate this week where the Democrats put together a poorly reasoned attempt to defeat the decision of the Supreme Court last week allowing that the owners of Hobby Lobby were free from coercions by the Obama administration to force them to act against their conscience.  The Senate Democrats decided to ‘double down’ on the coercion and eliminate all exceptions to the goal of Obamacare to provide abortions and birth control as a part of EVERY employer’s health insurance package.  Read more here:  http://www.lifenews.com/2014/07/16/senate-defeats-demcorats-bill-to-overturn-supreme-court-decision-protecting-hobby-lobby/  And here:  http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/bill-to-overturn-supreme-courts-hobby-lobby-decision-on-abortifacients-stal   Still the frontal assault of the Democrats on the Religious Freedom of Catholics is as brash as it is threatening.
