All US Bishops Condemn Obama / HHS MandateFebruary 19, 2012 No Comments

(By Royce) – Thomas Peters for CatholicVote.org has been reporting that “every single Bishop [in the United States] has condemned the Obama/HHS Mandate”.
Newly appointed Cardinal O’Brien recently said on Catholic Review that his Archdiocese of Baltimore would not comply with the “unjust” HHS law.
Bishop Frank Dwyane from Florida’s Diocese of Venice issued a statement on January 31, 2012 also saying his Diocese would not comply with the unjust law. ”People of faith cannot be made second class citizens.” The letter goes on, ”do not be misled by attempts to turn this into a debate about Church teaching or the morality of contraception.”
With all 181 US Bishops speaking out against the Obama mandate, is this a sign of change within the Church?
A MariaNews.com reader who will remain to be known as “Patricia” said this
May this be just the beginning of His inspiration of a tidal wave of courageous opposition, drowning this and every threat to religion and conscience, and sweeping out of the White House and Congress and every public office all who would so diabolically maneuver to violate the fundamental rights He Himself has given us.
One thing is for sure…. freedom in the United States is under attack!
Some people are foolishly led into a debate about “choice” or “whether contraceptions are good or bad,” but the issue here has nothing to do with either. The issue here deals with freedom of religion and exercising ones religious and moral rights.
The issue here is whether the Federal Government should have the power to force private and religious organizations into providing services for which they are morally opposed. - I think not.
The time has come for Catholics to take a stand for freedom!
Speak out, email your Bishops and let them know that you support their decision of not complying with the unjust law. Let us see how far Obama and his goon Sibelius are willing to take this war on religion.
