President Obama’s naked frontal attack upon Christianity (not just the Catholic Church, but against all religious faiths) via his latest policy moves by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius and their arrogant attempts to mandate that all religious and Christian-based hospitals, charities, colleges, universities and nonprofit organizations give away free contraception, abortion, abortifacient drugs and sterilization services on demand is both a patent violation of the separation of powers doctrine of the U.S. Constitution as well as the free exercise of religion protected by the First Amendment. Constitutionally speaking, neither President Obama nor Secretary Sibelius has the authority to force the church to violate the Bible and the collective consciences of millions of Christians and religious people in America who vehemently disagree with this unprecedented policy.
