The more time passes, the more we learn about our federal government’s assault on our Constitutional freedoms passed by Congress in 2011 in the name of fixing our health care system, commonly known as Obamacare. It empowered the federal government with new ways to punish people of faith by taking away their freedom to follow their religious convictions.
Thank God for the righteous remnant of Christians across the nation who have stood against it, and for Texas Judge Reed O’Conner because he ruled against it on December 31 2016.
“A federal judge has ruled against the Obama administration’s mandate that health professionals must carry out gender reassignment surgeries, even if they have medical or religious objections.
“The regulation not only forces healthcare professionals to violate their medical judgment, it requires them to violate their deeply held religious beliefs,” U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor of the Northern District of Texas said in a Dec. 31 decision granting a temporary injunction against the Obama administration.
“Tragically, the regulation would force them to violate those religious beliefs and perform harmful medical transition procedures or else suffer massive financial liability,” the judge added.” (Source: CNA)
This was not the first time Judge O’Connor has ruled against the Obama administration. In previous rulings, he struck down Obama’s rules for schools and gender identity.
Obamacare mandates like this would effectively force Christian health professionals to find other career paths by making it impossible for them to practice medicine without violating their faith. In effect, it would purge the industry of Christians and hand our health care system over to godless bureaucrats lacking in sound judgment. That’s what happened to our public schools where religious freedoms have been under attack for decades. Many excellent Christian teachers have opted to stay out and many Christian parents have pulled their children out, making it a hostile antichrist environment for those who remain.
President Elect Trump has promised to get rid of Obamacare, which makes this a great time to send up prayers for his success.
