Biden Admin Forced To Back Down From Legal Fight Over Candle At Catholic Hospital
And that is how nutso-crazy the leftists have become. A religious candle is so offensive to them that it goes all the way to the White House.
Imagine being that bent over a candle at-get this- a Catholic Hospital? The liberals don’t even want the Catholics to be Catholics.
At least Biden and his cronies lost on this round. It’s sad that a case such as this made it all the way to the capital in the first place.
Here’s how Blaze News reported the story:
The Biden administration caved on Friday after trying to force a Catholic hospital in Oklahoma to snuff out a chapel candle.
Religious liberty attorney Lori Windham announced the decision to Glenn Beck on his radio program.
“The government has seen the light and has abandoned its attempt to force an Oklahoma hospital to blow out a small candle or stop serving elderly, disabled, and low-income patients,” said Windham on Twitter.
“[HHS] has told Saint Francis that it can keep its living flame — a sacred candle housed in the hospital chapels,” she added.
The government had notified Saint Francis Health System that it would have to snuff out the candle over safety concerns. If it refused, its ability to accept Medicare, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) would be revoked.
Everyone can see through that lie. They are not worried about safety from a small candle. This is about control, and the liberals can’t handle it when a Christian hospital operates outside their agenda.
Windham, who is the vice president and senior counsel of the Becket Fund, criticized the government for what appeared to be a capricious and unreasonable infringement on religious liberty.
“The government’s demand is absurd and unlawful — it is targeting Saint Francis’s sincere beliefs without any good reason,” said Windham in a statement provided to Fox News Digital. “The government has a simple choice: either stop this attack on Saint Francis’s faith or expect a legal firestorm.”
Windham pointed out that the hospital provided care for about 400,000 patients every year and employs more than 11,000 workers at its Tulsa hospital.
“The flame is far from medical equipment and shielded by glass holders and a brass top. It has never caused a problem, the fire marshal has never complained, and the feds were fine with it until last month,” she added.
But that’s what the liberal are best at-complaining and whining when they don’t get their way.
Experts opined that if the federal government continued its demands that it would have likely led to an ugly legal battle over religious rights.
Oh, heavens above, most of the freedom-lovers and patriots would come unglued if Biden’s handlers started to take away our religious freedom. (Yes, we all can acknowledge that he already has, and that it started with Barrack Obama)
But maybe that’s what we need to wake up. We can’t keep fighting these battles from our couch cushions or from behind a keyboard. Active participation is what it’s going to take to snuff out this heinous liberal agenda.
