Respect for the Rights of Conscience Act

From Brian Burch, President
CatholicVote.org ;

Every bishop in the country just received an urgent letter from Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

Here's what he wrote:

In the United States, religious liberty does not depend on the benevolence of who is regulating us. It is our “first freedom” and respect for it must be broad and inclusive—not narrow and exclusive. Catholics and other people of faith and good will are not second class citizens. And it is not for the government to decide which of our ministries is “religious enough” to warrant religious freedom protection.

Those are powerful words from Cardinal Dolan. But he also had a very urgent request. He called upon every Catholic in America to immediately contact their legislators to support the Respect for the Rights of Conscience Act.

The Senate is expected to vote Tuesday or Wednesday of next week on this legislation, which would repeal the HHS mandate – and provide conscience protections for ALL Americans.

The legislation is sponsored by Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri and it would protect the rights of conscience for religious organizations and for businesses so they wouldn't be forced by the federal government to pay for medical procedures which violate their moral beliefs.

My sources in Washington tell me that we are in need of several critical swing votes, especially the following Senators.
Here are ten Senators we need to contact IMMEDIATELY:

202-224-2043 – Sen. Kent Conrad of North Dakota
202-224-2523 – Sen. Susan Collins of Maine
202-224-5344 – Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine
202-224-5824 – Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana
202-224-4041 – Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut
202-224-3954 – Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia
202-224-6154 – Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri
202-224-5274 – Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida
202-224-2353 – Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas
202-224-2644 – Sen. Jon Tester of Montana

If you get a busy signal, try calling the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

If one of these Senators represents your state, it is critical that you call their office and tell them to Vote YES on the Blunt Amendment.

Please also forward this message to all of your friends and family. We need everyone to call.
If you don't live in a state on this list, but know someone who does, please forward this message immediately.
We're also running web-based ads in these states encouraging people to call their Senator to protect religious liberty.
Please consider a gift of $14 or $28 to fuel this campaign.

Senator Blunt's legislation would stop the HHS mandate's assault on our religious freedom. It would protect the rights of conscience of all Americans.

dept of redundancy

Once again, an Obama administration agency is trying to mandate it's evil upon society.
And once again, it is the HHS trying to cram it's (Obama's) ideology down Americans throats.

We continue to hear the same ol' song from that department, that they are looking out for the "good of the public". 
They obviously haven't heard of the "Silent No More" group or Rachel's Vineyard.
......or even of the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.

The HHS continues to be redundant in it's agenda to crush religious freedom and make all Americans pay for abortions on demand. 
This is a travesty of justice and a slap in the face of Democracy. 

Archbishop Sheen once said that the way to destroy your enemy is to get people on the inside. 
He was speaking more about a coop or military situation, but I think it is very real that this is happening today with our government. 
Our President has his agenda and has put his cronies in place to slowly dismantle the fabric of American freedom. 

WE THE PEOPLE are the ones who can make a difference, or sit back and watch our country go down the tubes. 
Please do the right thing.....vote the dissenters out of office, turn to God, and repent....

The Origin of St. Valentine

The origin of St. Valentine, and how many St. Valentines there were, remains a mystery. One opinion is that he was a Roman martyred for refusing to give up his Christian faith. Other historians hold that St. Valentine was a temple priest jailed for defiance during the reign of Claudius. Whoever he was, Valentine really existed because archaeologists have unearthed a Roman catacomb and an ancient church dedicated to Saint Valentine. In 496 AD Pope Gelasius marked February 14th as a celebration in honor of his martyrdom.

Three-state sweep for Rick Santorum

We knew he could do it.
Congratulations to Rick Samtorum, his family and all those making his campaign successful.

Most of all, as Rick mentioned in his speech last night, thanks be to God.

All things are possible with God....Rick Santorum has a long way to go for the Presidency but I think this helped him gain momentum.

Keep those prayers going for Rick Santorum and his bid for the Presidency.
