Where's the freedom? Protesting the HHS Mandate outside the Supreme CourtYes, I heard the news. No, I’m not surprised. Neither am I throwing up my hands in despair. The battle over religious freedom (and freedom in general) is on and it has only just begun. I’d like to quote a newsletter I received today from Eric Scheidler. I think it will help to clear up some of the misinformation which is already flooding the airwaves now that this decision has been handed down. We have a long way to go, folks. Get educated. Do it now.

THE SUPREME COURT DID NOT UPHOLD THE HHS MANDATE TODAY.

Our opponents will try to claim we’ve lost our fight against the HHS Mandate because of today’s ruling. That is simply FALSE.

The Supreme court did not address the HHS Mandate issue in their ruling today. Nor did they declare the whole 2700-page Obamacare law to be constitutional.

Today’s ruling only addresses the constitutionality of a few pages of that law, on completely different issues from the HHS Mandate.

Provisions of Obamacare like the HHS Mandate could still be struck down in the future. In fact, I’m sure it will be when the scores of lawsuits against the HHS Mandate reach the high court.

But I’m not willing to wait that long — not when religious freedom is on the line. …

As I said, I’ll be nailing down specific plans for future action against the HHS Mandate soon. Meanwhile, visit the Stand Up website to see what you can do RIGHT NOW to fight the HHS Mandate:

So don’t lose heart.

Yes, today’s Supreme Court ruling is a disappointment. But in the end it will only INCREASE the urgency of our protests and inspire MORE people to join us out onto the streets!

The fight to stop the HHS Mandate will go forward with zeal — in the courts, in Congress, on the streets and on election day!

Yours for Life,

— Eric

This is truly spiritual warfare. Join the battle! Stand Up For Religious Freedom today! Read another interesting take on the decision and its implications.

EWTN’s The World Over focused last week on the HHS Mandate, not surprisingly (see video below or watch on YouTube). I finally got to watch it tonight (as I type this, as a matter of fact). Make no mistake: this is not merely a Catholic issue. Everyone’s freedom and liberty and right to conscience is about to go out the window if this mandate is allowed to stand. Goodbye, Liberty, Hello, Brave New World. Unless we stand up and speak out and say NO NOW!

If you don’t want to listen to the Newt Gingrich segment, watch the first segment with Michael Warsaw, CEO of EWTN which is suing over this outrageous mandate, and then fast forward to Fr. Sirico of the Acton Institute, and then watch the Rep. Chris Smith segment. Then learn more and share all of this with friends and family. United we can make a difference!

Judge rules in the healthcare case: Unconstitutional!I heard the news a few minutes ago, watching Megyn Kelly on Fox: the judge in Florida just ruled that Obama(doesn’t)Care individual mandate is unconstitutional and, since it’s not severable, the whole thing is made void. Woohoo! There are people who still acknowledge the Constitution as real, as important, as our guiding legal document. There is hope! Thanks be to God! (Well, there was always hope. But this is encouraging. Very encouraging.)

Let us continue to pray for our leaders, that the Lord will open their hearts and minds more and ever more to His Truth and Goodness and Mercy and Beauty and LOVE. Peace be with you.

Here’s a video of your president for you. (See below.) Wait, make sure you haven’t eaten yet. If you surf to YouTube to watch this on the Susan B. Anthony List’s channel, you can read the text of his speech. Maybe you should wear some good eye protection too. Could make your eyeballs boil. Sure makes my blood boil. You’ve got audacity, Mr. President, I’ll give ya that! Argh! Is it 2012 yet?!

I received action alert notices today in my email. I’d like to share a couple of links with you, quote some words from one of the emails, then add some words of my own in closing. Thank you for taking the time to read this. And thank you for taking action after reading. There are lives to be saved. This is urgent. Please read. Please act. Now. Continue reading
