Harry Reid's Response To Americans Worried About Obama's Attack On Religion: 'Calm Down'

By Susan Duclos

The controversy over Obamacare's HHS mandate into week two is still a political hot potato for Barack Obama, as has been explained in multiple posts, detailing the insistence of the Obama administration to interfere with religious freedoms by attempting to force religious groups institutions such and hospitals, to provide access to abortion drugs, contraceptives and sterilization procedures via insurance companies, for free, and has created a firestorm across the country.

The outcry against Obama's blatant disregard for religious freedom has caused an outcry from multiple religious groups and Republican and some Democratic lawmakers alike, with state AG'S from no less than three states threatening to sue the Obama administration and lawsuits filed by The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty on behalf of Belmont Abbey College, a Catholic liberal arts college founded by Benedictine monks, and Colorado Christian University, an evangelical college located outside of Denver and on behalf of Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), the Catholic television network.

Obama's attempt to "compromise" on Religious groups' freedom to practice their religion according to their beliefs was deemed unacceptable by the very same religious groups standing up and speaking out against the mandate in the first place.

U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) issued a statement yesterday and the day before he offered up an amendment, RESPECTING RIGHTS OF CONSCIENCE WITH REGARD TO SPECIFIC ITEMS OR SERVICES--, which Senate Majority leader Harry Reid objected to calling the debate "senseless" and telling Americans who are upset over Obama's trampling the First Amendment rights of freedom of religion, to "calm down."

Additional thought here- While listening to the YouTube of Harry Reid telling people to calm down until the mandate official becomes rule of law, I am reminded of Nancy Pelosi telling people Obamacare had to be passed so people could see what was in the bill. It passed and now we see this is the type of thing "in the Obamacare bill". Harry Reid doesn't want Americans to object until it is too late to do anything about it.
