The contraception mandate being imposed upon the Catholic Church needs to have one small bit of clarity added to it.

If the government gives a command to ignore a command from God – it requires a willingness to enforce their command. Basically, this means if the government tells you to ignore your faith, it requires them to have the willingness to use force to compel you to ignore your faith.

I would hope if such a day ever arises, the good people in America would unite to protect individuals who refuse to submit to such abuses of power.

To render unto Ceasar what is Caesar’s is just. To render unto Ceasar what is God’s is blasphemy. Obedience to God is greater than sacrifice – therefore, obeying God under threat of government force is a most righteous act of worship.

I pray for the restoration of a government that does not reserve for themselves the power to regulate religious liberty.
