Contact: Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, 540-538-4741
WASHINGTON, Feb. 1, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Coalition says the Obama Administration is still "clueless" when it comes to ensuring all Americans are protected from having to violate their deeply held religious beliefs and core values.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, comments,
"The Obama Administration's revision to the HHS contraceptive mandate fails completely in protecting religious freedom for all Americans. This narrow policy revision would only protect a small segment of organizations purchasing health care and would still leave scores of groups and individuals at risk in having their religious freedoms and beliefs trampled and crushed.
"It continues to show that this administration is clueless when it comes to understanding the First Amendment with respect to religious freedom for all Americans and ensuring that everyone is protected from having their core beliefs and conscience trampled by the government.
"The Obama Administration continues it's disrespect of the First Amendment and religious freedom by saying it only applies to certain groups and organizations.
"Our Founding Fathers understood that religious liberty and free speech should extend to everyone, not just certain groups deemed acceptable by the President and his administration."
The Christian Defense Coalition has been at the forefront of leading the fight against the HHS contraceptive mandate by organizing rallies and events attending by thousands in Washington, D.C.
