| by Michael Allen

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), on Wednesday, said that Obamacare's recently-enacted rule, which requires most employers to provide free birth control insurance coverage, was like banning communion for Christians, reports (video below).

Even though the Health & Human Services Department has promised to make accommodations for religious liberty, Rep. Gohmert said “It is a constitutional right that this administration is trotting on, and trampling, and stomping on. And if it will take this right, what’s next?”

Rep.Gohmert added: “The God of which Ben Franklin spoke, without whom we will succeed in our political building no better than the builders of Babel, is now being told by this administration that they’ll accommodate as best they can, but make no mistake they’re trampling on the rights that Priests for Life have been preaching about for 20 years.”
