Marco Rubio Introduces Bill to Protect Religious Groups From Obama’s HHS Mandate & Assault on First Amendment

I’m really beginning to like this Rubio guy and it would NOT surprise me if he ends up on the Republican ticket or at least be asked.

Last week Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan lashed out at the Obama Administration for forcing religious organizations to go out into the marketplace and buy a product that violates their conscience. The rule would force Christian organizations to provide free contraceptives, sterilizations and abortion drugs to workers even though this violates Catholic Church teaching. The new rules are so strict that most Catholic institutions will not qualify for an exemption.

Even Pope Benedict warned of the “grave threat” to religious freedom in United States before the Obama Administration approved the new rules.

Today Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced a bill to protect religious groups from Barack Obama’s HHS mandate that forces Christian organizations to provide abortion drugs, contraceptives and sterilization. The legislation pushed by Obama is clearly an assault on the First Amendment of the Constitution.
