First, Joe Biden’s administration dropped a lawsuit defending a Vermont nurse who said she was tricked into helping abort an unborn baby in violation of her rights. Now, Biden wants to cripple agencies tasked with enforcing religious freedom in other cases like the pro-life nurses.

Life News reports:

Newsmax reports an internal memo from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services calls for limiting the powers of the HHS Office of Civil Rights.

The memo, which was first reported about at Fox News this week, claims the Trump administration over-expanded the office’s power to enforce religious freedom laws, such as conscience protections for pro-life medical workers.

Office director Lisa Pino wrote the memo to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, a radical pro-abortion Democrat who has fought against religious freedom for nuns and others, according to the report.

Roger Severino, who led the Office of Civil Rights under the Trump administration, expressed concerns about the memo in a statement to Fox News.

More from Newsmax:

The memo targets two actions related to the First Amendment from earlier this year, and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which prohibits federal infringements on the free exercise of religion, Fox News said.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in 2017 provided executive agencies with guidelines on RFRA, free exercise claims, contraception in insurance plans, and other issues as the Trump administration attempted to strengthen religious liberty protections.

HHS then granted OCR the authority to conduct RFRA compliance reviews and “initiate such other actions as may be necessary to facilitate and ensure compliance with RFRA,” Fox News reported.

This is no surprise. Biden is a socialist and is anti-religious. Religions urge us to be accountable. Democrats advocate no accountability. If you have a problem, someone else must be responsible. If it feels good, do it. All leftist/Democrat sentiments.

He says he is such a devout Catholic. I wouldn’t believe a word he says.

When we all come before the “great white throne” judgement, those who have surrendered their will to Christ and turned from their evil ways will be on the right hand of God, the father. Those who have refused Christ and continued “the path of the unrighteous” will be on the left. Those on the right will then go to their eternal home in heaven those on the left won’t be in heaven. Not a lot different in our current left-right political arena.

If Joe was hired as a prison guard in China they would probably fire him as a guard and keep him as a inmate. Well perhaps not, he is a close friend to many Chinese Communist leaders.

biden is the absolute worse president this nation has ever had. biden and the democrats have one goal and that is to destroy Trump and anything he did that helped the country. the dumocrats have to prove that a non-politician cannot be president. if they fail, they become irrelevant. Trump proved that a good businessman can do the job better than a career polition like worthless joe. remember……NEVER, EVER TRUST A DEMOCRAT!!
