Thank You, God!

Good morning, Jim. Thanksgiving is a time to remember that God-given freedom will be lost unless we fight to keep it. In July a public school principal banned the song, “God Bless the USA,” because “it might offend other cultures!” On Constitution Day, Modesto Junior College officials stopped a student from passing out copies of the U.S. Constitution and, at least two other colleges did the same thing.
In their report “Undeniable: The Survey of Hostility to Religion in America,” Liberty Institute and the Family Research Council documented almost 1,200 incidents of hostility to religion in the United States and divided the attacks into three categories – the public arena, schools, churches and religious ministries. Some issues were settled in court, but others are still pending.
Because Obamacare’s “HHS Mandate” forces companies providing group health insurance to pay for abortion-inducing drugs, employers with religious convictions against funding abortions are suing the government to protect their constitutional rights. Case in point is Hobby Lobby Stores that plan to go out of business if they lose their case.
