Liberals Hold Prayer Breakfast in U.S. Capitol to Pray for Bill to End Secret Ballots in Union Organizing [Excerpts]
Union leaders, clergy and liberal members of Congress gathered in the mostly empty U.S. Capitol Visitors Center early Tuesday morning to hear multicultural choir music, speeches from religious leaders--and to pray for the passage of the Employee Free Choice Act. The prayer breakfast was sponsored by Faith Leaders for Workplace Fairness--a coalition of liberal religious groups that was formed for the sole purpose of promoting the “card-check” bill.

[TBC: These liberal clergy are advocating the theft of individual rights. As a secret ballot in general elections protects from intimidation and allows a voter to vote their conscience, a secret ballot in considering the formation of unions also protects the rights of the individual. Anything less fails to protect from intimidation. This is not an argument for or against the right to form a union. Rather, it is a reminder that true freedom only comes from God and that every effort of man outside the guidance of God only tends to tyranny and bondage. “While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage” (2 Peter:2:19).]
