New Federal HHS Mandate To Force Protestant Business Owners To Pray To Mary Against Their Consciences

Washington, DC––Horizon Baptist College in Washington, DC has become the first casualty of the new HHS mandate that requires Protestant colleges, groups, and businesses to pray to Mary, Mother of God.

A top legislative staffer for the U.S. Baptist Convention says that the nations Protestant leaders will push for congress to approve conscience exemptions for the new mandate. The mandate also forces non-Catholic Christian schools, groups, and business owners to pray to other saints to intercede on their behalf before the Lord.

In a new interview with EOTT, Richard Humphrey, the Baptist Conventions chief anti-intercession lobbyist, talked about the new mandate.

“Although President Obama declared, ‘If you like your religion, you can keep it,’ he was obviously lying. Now we’re seeing the first Protestant college to reject the mandate, and will therefore no longer offer its students prayer services.”

Due to their changes in regulation by the federal government, beginning with the 2014-15 school year, the university will no longer require students to praise and worship, and will also no longer require them to pray for the intentions of their classmates.
