Dr. Albert Mohler, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, On the President's Decision

The President, the Pill, and Religious Liberty in Peril

Dr. Albert Mohler is a good Southern Baptist, a staunch Evangelical, and I appreciate that. I am sure that he is quite brilliant, as well. He has posted many excellent commentaries which I enjoy reading even when he forthrightly declares that the Catholic Church is wrong.  It's a breath of fresh air, really.  He is the kind of fellow with whom I would want to engage in serious ecumenical dialogue.  When it comes to the Catholic Church, Dr. Mohler gives credit where credit is due. Refreshingly, as I indicated, he also calls it like he sees it when he thinks the Catholic Church is wrong on a theological matter. He has often said,"A true evangelical, committed to the Gospel as recovered in the Reformation, and a true Roman Catholic, committed to the teachings of the magisterium, are the last two people on earth who can have an honest disagreement." See what I mean?

In this post, he comments on the President's decision to require religious institutions to violate God's teaching:  "Every president faces decisions that test his character and principles. President Obama has failed this test, and the results will be tragic. He has trampled religious liberty underfoot and has announced his intention to force religious institutions to violate their consciences or go out of business."  Good stuff.
