It Begins… Christian Leaders Vow to Be Jailed Rather Than Cave to Obama’s HHS Law
In the last 24 hours Pastor Rick Warren pledged on his twitter page:
“I’d go to jail rather than cave in to a goverment mandate that violates what God commands us to do. Would you? Acts 5:29“
Likewise, one of the nation’s top Boptist leaders Dr. Richard Land vowed to do time rather than comply to Obama’s new HHS mandate.
Lifesite News reported:
One of the most influential evangelical leaders in the United States says Christians should go to jail rather than comply with the Obama administration’s mandate to provide all contraception, including abortion-inducing drugs, in their health care plans.
Dr. Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), told LifeSiteNews.com “we will not comply” with the Dept. of Health and Human Services’ mandate requiring religious institutions to cover abortifacient products such as Plan B, Ella, and the IUD.
“We want the law changed, or else we’re going to write our letters from the Nashville jail, just like Dr. King wrote his from the Birmingham jail,” Dr. Land said.
Today Barack Obama spoke with democrats and doubled down on his HHS mandate that forces Christian organizations to provide free abortifacient and birth control drugs to all employees.
