Comments:

Rejecting my employer's insurance
In exchange for my work, my employer offers a compensation package that includes health insurance. Since this insurance features coverage for drugs that can induce abortions, I am declining this form of compensation.

I do this with more than a minor risk to myself, since I have insulin dependent diabetes and the typical complications of the disease.

The Obama administration has drawn a line in the sand. My employer has chosen to stand on Obama's side.

My decision to step onto the other side seems to be a lonely one. I know of no other Christian employee who has made the same choice as me. Where are you?

Before November, perhaps you were expecting a new president to solve the problem. Perhaps you were hoping a Supreme Court decision would suddenly make the problem go away. But, these things have not happened.

A democracy is designed to work through its citizens. Of course, God can bypass this, and supernaturally solve the problem for us, and we should always seek his hand in our nation. But, it is also possible that God will allow a citizenry, who neglects their civic duty, to suffer the consequences of their neglect.

Please take a stand and let it be publicly known. Don't be silent.

1st amendment rights violated
If we stand in solidarity we must stand without violence since that may very well be the intention of this administration. If government has to come to the aid of the people because of violence vis-a-vis Van Jones and Frances Fox Piven, then the government has an excuse to further violate our rights under the guise of protecting us.
