WHAT THE SUPREME COURT RULING REALLY MEANS FOR CHRISTIANS!

Monday, The supreme rejected the mandate for contraception for some corporations. It was a 5-4 ruling That states small family owned business have to right as a company to religious freedom. It does not apply to all contraception only those that are associated with abortion. Such as the morning after pill and certain IUDs. It has been called by some Christians a victory for Our religious freedom and are faith. Could we be wrong?

As Christians we should be rejoicing right?  This Christian is not! in fact, I am sad and disappointed not only with my faith but my County’s highest courts ruling. I am all for religious freedom. It is a right I take very seriously. We all have the right to worship.As a person of faith I wrestle with these issues on reproductive rights.I think we all do. We don’t however have the right to be bullies and shove are beliefs down the throats of others.People have rights, corporations are not people. No matter what 5 conservative men on the supreme court think.This ruling is a slap in the face to all women.

This is his Job!

This is his Job!

Lets be real this case wasn’t really about religious freedom. It was a back door attempt to undermine the affordable care act and push a pro life agenda. I personally am not for abortion, but I support a women’s  right to choose. Writing morality into law is not only a bad Idea but it is doomed to fail. One only needs to look at history to see that. This has open the gates for others to to use religion as a shield for breaking the law or discriminating against others.

What will happen when another religion comes along that believes that women shouldn’t work or that vaccinating children is against God’s law.Think about this, what if a Muslim owned business used this precedent to discriminate against it’s christian employees?lets say they don’t want medical coverage for their employees  to cover medications derived from pigs. As Christians we would be outraged  and rightfully so. This is the precise reason we have a separation of church and state. We have opened the floodgates and it will be hard to close them. Like they say you can’t UN ring a bell.

This is His Job Any Questions!

This is His Job
Any Questions!

They only thing we as Christians have done is shown the world that we are bullies.That some how religious freedom should be reserved for only us. OK, so you have won! Have you considered the cost of your victory?Have you considered that this will come back to bite you? Christians  will actually be the cause of more abortions, and more unwanted children in the US..Some off the loudest in this argument will later complain when these mothers have to go on welfare.They will also complain when the government provides free contraception for those affected by this ruling.So aren’t we then being counter productive?  All this tells me is that this is not about religious freedom. It is about making others  adhere to your belief system by force.In the end supporters of this could be the unraveling of are faith. We do not bring people closer to God by force but by love. When we use force and bully tactics we actually push them farther away for God.We become no better than any other extremist group.

I for one won’t be shopping at Hobby Lobby or any company in the future that takes this stance.I have signed a petition with ultraviolet and plan on writing my congressman and fighting alongside other women until this decision is reversed. I will do it for the good of our country and with my relationship with God intact!
