First joining us now is Tony Perkins he's president of the family research council.
Tony good to have you with -- I asked Foster -- Unaware that he would not so much time at the conference -- the mood -- -- Was there.
You cannot rely upon you for a report.
Yeah I had to be reported an item -- an enthusiastic crowd.
That it clearly is eager to see change in Washington DC come January of next year.
So I think it was I get a great response I enjoyed being there I spent a couple hours they're talking to different folks and but -- this.
I think what C pact could not have happened at a better time.
Based on what has happened or been revealed over the last week with -- president's mandate.
This is big government at its worst trampling upon not only the freedoms of people but the most fundamental freedoms that freedom of religion.
Well the First Amendment and making it very clear at all.
But certainly -- them do their religious Americans.
That they are basically.
Hanging in the wind.
At the -- of this president and that the constitution is irrelevant.
If it stands between them and their -- Yes they did it look this is been a steady flow from this administration policies you know I've talked about this -- some of the policies that are hostile toward.
This is not the first time that this issue of contraceptive forced contraception.
Upon religious organizations actually the EEOC the Obama administration's EEOC has been.
Forcing Christian colleges like.
You never -- university and Christian Colorado Christian.
University to provide mandated that contraceptive coverage and their policies there's litigating that but this is this is what this administration -- There are no limits to.
How and in what they can do to impose their their policy of the radical policy ideas on the American people even religion is not here are some limits.
So -- cardinal house soon to be cardinal designate archbishop Timothy -- Saying this administration this president is again on the wrong side of the constitution.
Our Richard -- one of the leading evangelical conservatives as you well know are in the -- thing go to jail before you honor of the Obama health care law.
I mean this is serious.
-- action a to a president who seems to have at least on this issue.
A lost his way.
Yeah I I was was Richard Land earlier this morning and I have talked to a number of religious leaders I was talking to chuck Colson today.
I have not seen this type of reaction to any thing not only in the last three years but in my eight years being at the family research -- Clearly.
And -- while you know obviously this is a Catholic issue for and in terms of the contraceptive.
But this is not why everybody is exercised over this in concern.
This is an issue of religious freedoms they'll poll out today I think just today should 65% of Catholics are opposing this mandate that 62%.
Of Protestants are opposed to because they know.
If the government can mandate that you provide this type of service in your health care plan they can mandate anything.
And that's really the problem with this whole health care takeover is it's a mandate it's a mandate everybody has -- and now they're mandating what you provide.
Time we're we're out of time it's always good to talk really appreciate your being with us Tony Perkins haven't started his -- -- was.
