"...Let Freedom Ring. "

There is a storm that has been brewing for quite awhile in the United States. The storm ,  circulating in various places at various times, has been eroding the Rights of Freedom of Religion. The most latest attack on our Freedom of Religion is Obama's most recent decision announced yesterday, January 20th, 2012.

"After evaluating comments, we have decided to add an additional element to the final rule. Nonprofit employers who, based on religious beliefs, do not currently provide contraceptive coverage in their insurance plan, will be provided an additional year, until August 1, 2013, to comply with the new law."

In response to this statement, "Cardinal-designate Timothy M. Dolan, archbishop of New York and president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops"..." “To force American citizens to choose between violating their consciences and forgoing their healthcare is literally unconscionable.It is as much an attack on access to health care as on religious freedom. Historically this represents a challenge and a compromise of our religious liberty."      U.S. Bishops Vow to Fight HHS Edict 

Only one day prior to HHS's announcement, Pope Benedict warned that the U.S. is facing a "a grave threat to Religious Freedom "

Now, after reviewing the documentary movie called NINE DAYS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD where the Pope John Paul II was so internally involved fighting the horrors of Naziism in Poland to inspiring the Poles to initiate Solidarity which resulted in their freedom from a Communistic Government. All this was performed without arms but the arms of Truth. John Paul II turned Totalitarianism on its head by way of speaking the Truth. We must continue to strive for our own Freedoms, anywhere in the world. Perhaps the Vatican has much experience and foresight to the dealings going on in the United States.

"Each one of you, my young friends, finds in your life Westerplatte, a responsibility, a duty, which you cannot avoid, from which you cannot desert.  Let me remind you who you are, you are a people formed by a distinctive history and culture and if you won that again, if you have tools of resistance to this repression that the tyrants cannot meet."  John Paul II
