Focus on the Family: Obama Pushing what is not ‘Health Care’

Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, says of the Obama mandate against religious freedom …

This mandate elevates contraception and abortion-inducing drugs to the level of preventative healthcare. They are not. Plan B should not be considered equivalent to the polio vaccine. Pregnancy is not a disease. Perhaps the most fundamental flaw in the White House’s “accommodation” reasoning—no matter, frankly, what in the end that accommodation turns out to be—is that religious liberties are not something any president has the legal authority to recognize or deny. As Christians, we believe these rights come from God; but you don’t need to believe in God to recognize such rights are protected for all citizens by the Constitution.

There is a limit to what government can compel us to do—or not do—particularly in matters of faith and conscience. It is in the best interest of all Americans, of every ideological stripe, that this limit, this line, not be crossed.

This is not about politics. It is about more than one government policy. It is about what’s proper—and it is never proper for government to force the people who elected it to violate their consciences.

  1. It’s fair to say President Obama is now one of the “new atheists,” and he stands alongside Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and others advocating against the God-given, Constitution-affirming free exercise of religion.
