ObamaCare = HHS Mandate = Assault on Religious Freedom = Unconstitutional = Illegal Law Upheld by SCOTUS

As most of you know, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) was upheld as constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) under the taxing authority of Congress.  The problem is that ObamaCare is still unconstitutional regardless of what the Supreme Court’s majority decided.  The final vote was 5-4

Why is ObamaCare illegal?  I will demonstrate this below by showing ObamaCare = HHS Mandate = Assault on Religious Freedom = Unconstitutional = Illegal Law Upheld by SCOTUS :

  1.  ObamaCare mandates that individuals buy health insurance or pay a penalty/tax.  However, individuals can only pay taxes on products they willing buy.  But, now SCOTUS says individuals can be taxed on a product they do not buy.  This reasoning by five justices (Roberts, Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan and Sotomayor) is not reason but, inductive reasoning.  They cognitively induced language into the U.S. Constitution that no one else can see and simply does not exist.  Additionally, Obamacare allowed for new rules to be enforced at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS.)
  2. The HHS mandate requiring religious institutions to pay for contraception, abortion and sterilizations of women and men (are against the religious institution’s beliefs and thus makes the institution an accessory to another’s sin) derives from ObamaCare.  Without ObamaCare, the HHS mandate is not born.
  3. The Assault on Religious Freedom from the HHS mandate’s requirements which force religious institutions to be an accessory to another’s sin, prohibits the free exercise of religion.  This violates Amendment 1 of the U.S. Constitution:                                                        “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”                                                                                                Violating the free exercise of religion is equal to the HHS mandate, which is then equal to ObamaCare.
  4. When the free exercise of religion is violated by a mandate that comes from a law, then that law is Unconstitutional.  Therefore, ObamaCare is unconstitutional.
  5. When a law and a mandate are prohibited in a constitution (the rules,) the law and its mandate are Illegal Law.  Therefore, ObamaCare is an illegal law.

The fourjustices (Alito, Kennedy, Scalia and Thomas) who found ObamaCare unconstitutional but, were out-voted are to be commended for their deductive reasoning skills and courage in holding to the truth.

O Holy Spirit, strengthen us to defend all that is holy.  O Lord, help us to love our enemies and to do good to those that hate us and to pray for those who persecute us and calumniate us.

Don’t Give Up Chocolate for Lent! Resolve to Defend Your Church’s Religious Freedom for Lent!

Giving up chocolate for Lent will not save our Church and will not save our country from the loss of religious freedom that radical secularism demands.  Resolving to defend our Church and country from this error are the only hope to restoring our freedom of religion.  So, get out of your comfort zone because the alternative to religious freedom is extremely uncomfortable.

The time has passed for insignificant resolutions during the Lenten season.  Our Church needs us and our Pope has called us to action:

“Here once more we see the need for an engaged, articulate and well-formed CATHOLIC LAITY endowed with a strong critical sense vis-à-vis the dominant culture and with the courage to counter a reductive secularism which would delegitimize the Church’s participation in public debate about the issues which are determining the FUTURE OF AMERICAN SOCIETY.”

What do we need to do to defend the Church?  We need to work now to remove false community organizations from our parishes.  We need to  educate many more Catholics about community organizations manipulation of Catholic social teaching and how it fools Catholics into acting and voting against a Catholic conscience.  The manipulation by these community organizations leads to illegal mandates like President Obama’s HHS contraception, sterilization and abortifacient mandate.  President Obama is a product of this manipulation of Catholic social teaching through the community organization known as GamalielHe worked for Gamaliel in Chicago.

So, how can a Catholic implement a Lenten resolution of defense?  By taking action on the “11 Steps to Remove Socialist Community Organizing from your parish and diocese.”

Defend our Church with these steps and you will do tremendous good.

You can even eat chocolate while you do it.

O Holy Spirit, strengthen us to defend all that is holy.
