The Catholic Defender: Hobby Lobby

President Obama's war on Christianity and in particular the Catholic Faith will continue to intensify.

Now that Obama is set for a second term, he will feel emboldened to broaden his agenda.

His agenda is not simply the use of the courts and the Senate. He means to tighten the noose on any Christian establishment.

Consider Hobby Lobby, a unique chain of stores that sell all kinds of household items.

My wife and I like browsing around looking through one of their local stores in our area.

Hobby Lobby was founded by a strong Christian family and they have done well offering good bargains, great buys that get you coming back for more.

On Sunday you will not find any of their stores open as they close to honor the Lord's Day.

This was what practically America was like until the 1970's when Congress changed the laws allowing the buying and selling on Sunday.

Now, practically everyone is out to make the big bucks and Sunday is no longer held as sacred.

I have always respected Hobby Lobby and supported them for their strong dedication and commitment in honoring the commands of the Lord. It is refreshing to see to say the least.

Then comes the legacy of the Obama Administration with their Secular agenda. Despite that fact that 70% of the American people opposed the passing of Obama-care, the liberal establishment rammed it down the throats of all Americans.

Nancy Pelosy said that they had to pass the bill to see what was in it? The American people wanted them to kill the bill.

Almost instantly the progressives went on the warpath against the Catholic Faith with their Obama mandates for the abortion pill and birth control.

The Progressives want the American people to be forced to comply to their mandate to ensure that abortion and birth control is part of all insurance coverage.

The Catholic Church was given 1 year to comply before being fined. Because Hobby Lobby has always held to honor the laws of God, they have fallen into this battle.

Everyday, Hobby Lobby is being forced to pay 1.3 million to the Government until they comply with the Obama mandate.

This strategy of Obama is to kill any opposition to their mandate. Like a snake that catches it's prey, they are seeking to constrict everyone in their path.

Like a spiderweb, they are controlling everything they can to move forward with their agenda.

This is not a time for weak knees and spineless apathy. The Church must not cave in to the pressure but be willing to stand up for freedom and liberty.

To stand up for the Constitution of the United states. We are at the point that the Church is about the only thing left strong enough to put up a fight.

The Republican Party has compromised or cave in so much that they are not doing anything to slow down the Obama machine.

Faith in America will be so altered it will not be easy to hold on to our beliefs without having permission from the Government.

This is contrary to the Constitution which defends the freedom of Religion. How long can entrepreneurs like Hobby Lobby last before they are completely stripped of their rights?

If we do not heed the warning of Mary at Fatima, then the curse of 2 Chronicles will be our portion.

2 Chronicles 7:19-22 says, "But if you turn aside and forsake my statutes and my commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them, then I will pluck you up from the land which I have given you: and this house, which I have consecrated for my name, I will cast out my name, I will cast out my sight, and will make a proverb and a byword among all peoples. And at this house, which is exalted, every one passing by will be astonished, and say, 'Why has the Lord done thus to this land and to this house'? Then they will say, 'Because they forsook the Lord the God of their fathers who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods. and worshiped them and served them; therefore he has brought all this evil upon them".

With the Secularization and the agenda of the Progressives, much of our liberty and freedoms are being taken away as the snake prepares to strike.

The American flag's colors, the red, white, and blue, represented what was true, what was pure, what was fought for that our children would inherit the framers of the Constitution's intent of freedom.

President Ronald Reagan warned:

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

It is important that we heed the warnings of Fatima because our freedoms are not automatic, now is the time, now is the day to pick up our cross and serve the Lord.
