The Christian Defense Coalition and a collection of other Christian right groups has a plan to make sure they win the lawsuit over the health care reform law. They’re going to surround the Supreme Court with people and pray the day before the oral argument takes place.
“We are calling people from all America to come to Supreme Court and ‘encircle it with prayer’ from March 25-28 as we cry out to God for justice, human rights and religious freedom.
“Sadly, the President’s Health Care legislation crushes religious freedom and liberty with unjust mandates on faith institutions and forces taxpayers to pay for abortions.
“We will be praying that Obamacare is declared unconstitutional so Congress can put forward health care legislation that will respect religious freedom, protect human life and honor the principles of our Constitution.
“When Roe v. Wade was decided, the Christian community was detached and uninvolved. We want to make sure that is not the case this time as we challenge people of faith to publicly pray and speak out with boldness and passion.”
You just pray your little hearts out, folks. It keeps you from doing something that actually has meaning for a few days.
