With regards to government intervention into religion, the First Amendment to the US Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” First, Congress is the Constitutional body that has the authority to make laws for the United States of America. Second, it is to steer clear of anything pertaining to freedom of religion.
The president of the United States has no authority–whatsoever–to make any laws or influence religion in any way, whatsoever. Therefore, Obama had and has no authority to demand that anyone or any body–let alone the Catholic or any other Christian Church or Jewish synagogue–must appease him by providing birth control, abortions or anything else the tyrant requires. Further, he does not have the authority to compromise or ‘work a deal’ with any Church about anything. Question: Does anyone in this country still remember that the US Constitution is our foundational LEGAL document? And what is it about “no authority” that seems to confuse so many of the Obama media?
As I have written over and over again for years, if Obama is allowed to get away with flaunting the Constitution and its essential Bill of Rights, it’s as if our founding document no longer exists and Obama may now make up any law he wants to install.
But, as Congress continues to illegally give Obama more and more dictatorial powers (sadly, I wrote that–if Obama was elected–this would occur in October 2008) we have now reached the point that Obama is–fully–the Dictator-in-Chief of the USA. I have also written myriad columns warning that Obama is grabbing more and more power for himself, gutting more and more programs in order to pull in more and more money for himself and his friends yet, no one in Congress or the courts are even trying to stop him. And all too many of the former We-the-People will do anything about it.
As Obama continues to decimate our economy by destroying the US treasury and gut any of our remaining freedoms in order to force us into submission, I’m reminded of the tribes of Israel when they originally settled in Egypt. Genesis 47:19 states: “Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.” They were willing to become slaves to Pharaoh for bread and grain.
Knowing that Obama truly is the one who has systematically devastated our country–by design–in order to subjugate its people (he is a true Alinskyite) are we, nonetheless, now ready to be his slaves? Are you?
