Our first amendment right of freedom of religion was trampled on by the current administration. They approved the edict from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, making mandatory health insurance coverage of medication and procedures that are against the teachings of my church.
[As part of the health-care reform law some] Catholic-based universities, employers and social agencies will be required to provide free drugs that induce abortion [or face substantial fines.]
Throughout history and to this very day, people have paid with their lives to defend our right to religious freedom. But God is good. With providential timing and serving as a wake-up call, the movie For Greater Glory was released this year and is now available on DVD. The story has been removed from history books.
Starring Andy Garcia, this movie tells the true story of the Cristeros. It is a story of a 1920s Mexican civil war between the federal government and the Catholic church.
President Plutarco Calles’ objective was to centralize all power of the federal government, seeing religion as a stumbling block to his goals.
The film shows what blood sacrifices were made in the name of religious freedom, including a 14-year-old martyr for his faith. For those of Mexican descent, this is your grandparent’s price for freedom. Before you vote, view this film to understand the significance of an administration that disregards the First Amendment.
Eerily, similarities exist for Christians of all faiths today.
I believe Mitt Romney is the best candidate to preserve our Constitutional liberties. When you are forced to violate your conscience, you have no freedom at all.
