Southern Baptist groups fighting the contraception regulation and Obama care they are suing the federal government.
Is religious freedom under attack by the Obama administration and what makes this lawsuit so important.
We're gonna Russell Moore he's the president of the southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission -- -- -- -- this morning.
How does -- Obama -- specifically impinge on your religious liberty.
Well obamacare is requiring -- groups and organizations to pay for contraceptive devices -- a fashion drugs.
In ways that they violate our conscience this week we simply can't participate in these things.
And what the administration is attempting to do is a number of things one of those things is to define religion very narrowly.
As though our religious liberty simply has to do with what happens between the time we get from the four year to the pew.
And out the front doors again on Sunday mornings when in fact our religion in it compels us to live our lives and a certain way it has to do with the way our consciences are being formed.
And these these rules side simply do not reflect.
The way that we have lived as Americans.
In the past for Britain respecting one another's content such an end they provide -- exemption.
For religiously revenues there's.
That -- forcing it on what he wanted to or not well they're.
There there -- provide a very narrow category of what a religious organization is.
It in ways to simply don't reflect of the way that religious people live out to our lives and so they're saying if you're how also warship.
We're going to exempt you from these things but not from other organizations that are doing all sorts of things from religious motivations not to mention people who are doing business who are motivated by their religious conscience is in a way that's that's very damaging -- our fabric I think as a country.
When it's also damaging to nonprofits -- to an awful lot of valuable charity work coming won't.
Obamacare cause some of these two -- there they're the worst.
Absolutely you can see this happening all over the country not only related to obamacare this is just one fiery rafter in a burning house.
Religious liberty is under assault all over the place in this country in ways that I think are are probably more pronounced than we have seen.
Since the founding era and that's exactly what's happening.
People who are doing good things in their communities motivated by religious convictions are simply being driven out of the public square because they won't sing out of the hymn book.
Of the church of the sexual revolution.
I just don't think we can live this way as Americans.
Moore thanks for joining us this morning appreciate it good to be where the it.
