Catholics Against Obama Care!!!

Beloved Catholic blogger Jean Heimann of Catholic fire has started a grassroots movement called

Catholics Against Obama Care

Today Jean has sent out the following press release:

Catholics Against Obama Care set September 11 as Day of Prayer and Fasting for defeat of Health Care Reform

For Immediate Release

(September 8, 2009) Catholics Against Obama Care is calling Catholics as well as those of other denominations to participate in a day of prayer and fasting on September 11, 2009, for the special intention that Obama health care reform be defeated.

Catholics Against Obama Care acknowledges that Catholic Church has always advocated health care reform; but Obamacare, as delineated in the HR-3200 Bill, is not health care -- it is death care. Mandated abortion, health care rationing, and euthanasia are not health care. Obamacare is government control over people's lives and, as Jon Voight points out the removal of a person's free will. Voight said in an interview on Fox News with Mike Huckabee, "They're taking away God's first gift to man -- our free will and no man no matter what his title, even if he's president of the United States, has the consent of God to decide he's God."

Jean M. Heimann, the founder of Catholics Against Obama Care, is a Catholic freelance writer and also the author and administrator of the award-winning weblog Catholic Fire. Catholics Against Obama Care, a grassroots movement, which began on August 22, the feast day of the Queenship of Mary, has selected the Mother of God to be the group’s special intercessor in their efforts to defeat this anti-Catholic, anti-life bill.

Heimann explains how Catholics Against Obama Care began:

“I had been praying for Obama's conversion at daily Mass and for the truth to be revealed about this administration's deceptive health care reform bill. One day, I felt that I needed to do more than just sign petitions and contact my congressmen. I felt that God was calling me to do something more to stop this evil bill which mandates abortion, rations health care to the disabled and the seriously ill, and encourages euthanasia for the elderly.

So, I selected several talented pro-life Catholic writers/bloggers from different areas of the country -- CT, Idaho, Hawaii, Florida, Wisconsin, and Kansas -- who agreed to use their gifts to share the truth with others about this so-called health reform bill.

In addition to educating and enlightening others about what the bill is really all about, we also want to encourage other Catholics to become pro-active by praying and fasting that this bill does not become law.”

I hope I remember to participate. Often times I mean to and then something pulls me another direction and I forget to not eat. No eating . . . I can do it, but if I plan not to I usually get sidetracked. Uff!

Sarah..you can fast from anything that is kind of hard to fast from is what I was told...just make it a point to fast in some way...like you said, if you remember! I think because it is the 11th, that I will, plus it is Friday anyway and I usually group on that day and it will be a little effort to go somewhere and not have the goody I normally have in the morning. That's okay..though.

I will pray as well. Fasting doesn't work right now while I'm feeding the baby, but I will pray.

Sarah, Suzanne is right, I believe. It's about sacrificing something in regard to food. do what you can:-)
Chris....is this Lynz? feeding the baby? I'm thinking yes. Praying is so important.
