D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals rules
against Priests for Life and Religious Freedom!
November 14, 2014
In an unjust ruling issued today, the US Court of Appeals for the D.C.
Circuit ruled against Priests for Life saying that the regulations of
ObamaCare’s HHS mandate “do not impose a substantial burden on
Plaintiffs’ religious exercise.”
That’s absurd! Of course they do.
The Court is wrong.
And as I’ve told you from the very beginning of this process ...
Priests for Life will not obey the mandate!
Not today. Not tomorrow. Not ever!
And part of this defiance will be to appeal the Court’s ruling to the
U.S. Supreme Court.
In order to do that successfully Priests for Life needs your
immediate financial help so that we can re-fill our Legal Fund and
continue to prosecute our lawsuit!
click here and be as generous as you can!
As I’ve told you in prior emails, I fully expect the Court to take our
case and to rule in our favor because our lawsuit is to non-profit
religious organizations what the Hobby Lobby case was for private
Having ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, we will argue that the Court
should also rule in favor of us.
But there’s no guarantee of success. When it comes to figuring out
how judges will rule, there’s no telling. By rights, the Hobby
Lobby ruling should have been a unanimous 9 – 0 decision in favor of
Hobby Lobby and protecting religious freedom.
But it wasn’t. It was a narrow 5 – 4 decision.
Because it was, and because the appeals court today did not see the
connection between the Hobby Lobby case and ours, I’m very concerned
about our lawsuit.
Which is why I’m writing to you as I am today. In order for
Priests for Life to protect your right to practice your religion free
from government coercion, we need you to get behind our lawsuit and give
it your full and unconditional support. Specifically we need two
things from you:
Your FINANCIAL SUPPORT!
Please be as generous with both as you possibly can.
Again, this is a fight for RELIGIOUS FREEDOM!!! The Obama
administration acts as one who is determined to take that right away
from you and from all Americans.
Don’t let them! Fight back! Because once the government
takes away our First Amendment right to freedom of religion, we
will never get it back! NEVER!!!
Which means the government will have the power to force every American
to bend to its will!
Is that the kind of America you want to leave your grandchildren?
Of course not.
Working and praying together we can preserve religious freedom for
future generations of American.
But it all begins right here and right now!

But above all, please PRAY for Priests for Life and our
HERE and make a contribution that
we can use to re-fill our Legal Fund and so be able to argue our case
before the Supreme Court.
Thank you for your urgently needed support today. And may God
bless you for the sacrifices I know you are making to help.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
