Did Obama mean to pick a fight with America’s two largest denominations?
"Christians should go to jail rather than comply with the Obama administration’s mandate to provide all contraception, including abortion-inducing drugs, in their health care plans," says Southern Baptist leader Dr. Richard Land.

" . . . have no lost my mind nor my moral compass . . . " . . . "will leave the president box blank." What we actually do in the voting booth sometimes can change from earlier intentions, so we will see. We are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. Just leaving blank seems a halfhearted protest, like standing on the side wringing your hands and saying "Woe is me!" Of course we could be caught in a choice between two really objectionable positions . . . At this point, until D's unseat their leader or R's select a total jerk, my plan is to swim with the sharks and pray for the best.

A little known law in Obamacare takes effect in 2014. The Federal government cannot actually pay for abortions, so Americans will be REQUIRED to write monthly checks to a fund which will provide abortions on demand. Our Lord clearly requires that we obey our leaders unless their edicts oppose His. This is one of those moments. I never thought we would be faced with these moments in a country established with God-given rights. The government does not give them, God does.

My question is does Muslins believe in their wives having abortions? I think not. We are definintely seeing the end of the world coming with all of the OBAMA garbage that he is trying to shrove down the Christians throats. I didn't vote for him the first time and will not vote for him this time. Our country was founded on Christian beliefs, but other religions were allowed to practice in our country. But now we are expected to FORGET the beliefs of our forefathers and founders and bow down to allah. I will go to jail or die before I pray to a false GOD.

I am a Catholic and I do belong to the Knights of Columbus. In all of my years I can`t believe that Our President would come out with something so absurd. We can`t go along with this President in his believe of forcing us Catholic to do what we so strongly believe against . He said that we were not a Christin country and now I think that he believes it. I don`t know what business it is for him to try top force us to go against what we have been to believe all of our lives. I think that this President has gone to for in trying to push the government down our throats. I do think that the government is getting into our lives to much. I personally will not vote for this President for another term. We are of our faith and you are trying to force us to believe in the MUSLIM. I would rather go to jail then to change my believe.

Christianity preaches against abortions no matter the reason for the pregnancy. Obama is WRONG in attacking this issue, especially since it is re-election year! He is NOT a Christian either, but is a MUSLIM and has no right to direct what Christians can or cannot do. According to the Christian Bible, God mandates against abortions! He even mandates against having sex outside of marriage. There is your answer.

There are two schools of thought on this one issue. From people of faiths point of view, it is an unconscionable violation of thier Religious Conscience, forced upon them from a Federal mandate..which has never been the case. Even RvWade is still a matter of choice. Some have also suggested that if the Churchs objection will open up an avenue for government to over reach again, as they did in with the auto industry. I fear with the President, nothing seems to limit his belief of being King.

Thanks for posting this analysis, which, as far as I can tell, is fair. It is interesting that Obama's edict was called "an act of hubris." was it? From the beginning, he seemed to be a modernized politician in touch with trends. I think he did not foresee the rebuttal, which brought some solidarity to US Christian world. We, once again. are needing to examine this moral question. This act of Obama's, intentional or not, brought out the populace into view, especially the religious leaders, who otherwise would seem invisible and asleep. My pastor complains about their lack of prophetic witness on all sorts of matters. It takes a sex-related issue to bring them out. Then, it is a matter of conscience (are not so many other issues--commercial dishonesty and greed coupled with poverty) matters of conscience, too? As for electability influence, I think it not have much influence. It should simmer down by Nov., and the American people will consider a lot of other concerns besides this.
