~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
I just received the following from Freedom Works. I also heard about this on Beck's show today. The only question I have is: Blunt's Conscience Amendment is included in the Transportation Bill. Heritage Foundation says the transportation bill is a bad one.
So....this is the only way legislation will get passed? BTW, my representative, Fortenberry-NE is sponsor of the House version of a Conscience bill. Will be following.
Kenneth Vice National has invited you to attend an event
What: " We are all Catholic Now "
When: Feb 15, 2012
Time: 1:30 pm CST
Please visit http://connect.freedomworks.org/node/225408 to view the event
The controversy over the Obama administration’s contraception mandate is at
a boiling point, as many Catholic leaders continue to view the president’s
so-called “accommodation” as a failure to protect religious liberty. The
main push is to support the highway transportation bill, which will likely be
voted upon this week. It will include an amendment – Blunt Conscience
Protection Amendment – from Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) that would protect
religious conscience rights. Glenn Beck is asking for people to start calling
their Senators and letting them know that “we are all Catholics now.” The
issue at hand is not about contraception as it has been framed by many media
outlets. It is a religious freedom issue that hinges upon the separation of
church and state’s mandate that the government not force churches to
violate their values and principles. For more details please go to this site
Here are his directions for getting involved and making an impact:
Call the Capitol and speak with your Senator. The numbers are: 202.224.3121;
202.225.3121; the toll free numbers for the Capitol Switchboard include:
1-866-220-0044 1-877-851-6437, 1-800-833-6354, 1-888-355-3588,
1-866-808-0065, 1-877-762-8762, 1-800-862-5530.
Call the switchboard, ask to be connected to a Senator from your specific
state (it will take two calls, one for each Senator).
1. Tell them that you want to tell the Senator to vote for the Blunt
conscience protection amendment.
2. Ask them if they know how the Senator will vote on that amendment
3. Tell them you want to be contacted back about how he voted (be sure to
ask for accountability — they hate it, but it makes them call you back).
4. When you call, be sure to tell them “We are all Catholics now”. This
key phrase will let them know you are part of a larger, organized movement
working in support of religious freedom.

Thanks for posting this. Our representatives need to know how we feel about this. Lucky you! Getting rid of Ben-dover, and having Johanns! All Dems where I live. I will have to start calling my daughter's and cousin's representatives again.
I wish they would stop including unrelated stuff in bills. Let the issue stand alone and be passed on it's merits, not by tacking it onto something popular but unrelated (or unpopular, whichever!).
Yeah, no kidding. I think the transportation legislation carries a $260B(?) price tag. I can't remember where they propose to get those funds.
Was on some lefty sites and the conscience amendment is being portrayed as employers imposing their morals on workers. If your boss hates fat people, he/she won't pay to go to Michelle's fat camp. And Babs Boxer is suddenly concerned with morals.
I know they're adding this to try to protect our religious rights, but doesn't the Constitution do that? Why do we even need a conscience amendment?
