Listen Carol. I have no sympathy for the Catholic Church on this issue. I think the Church wants this issue to be active during the election so they can get Catholics out to vote against the Democrats. I negotiated a satisfactory settlement with a representative of HHS and presented her offer to my pastor, the lawyers at the Camden, NJ diocese and the USCCB in Washington. They not only kept me out of the loop on this, but to my knowledge, they did not pursue the settlement. By now, I could have every Church organization exempt from the HHS Mandate. So I voted for President Obama to preserve Medicaid for my sister and daughter without regard for the HHS Mandate issue. If you have any questions, please contact me.

First, I disagree with you that the Church wants this issue to be active during the election so they can get Catholics out to vote against the Democrats. Most Catholics support the culture of death Democratic Party. Most Catholics contracept, abort, cohabitat, divorce, and big government. I doubt most of them care whether or they pay through their insurance plans for others to do what they approve of. And most of the U.S. bishops are right along with the ideology and philosophy of the Democratic Party. Only a few such as Chaput speak out about the moral teachings of the Church.

Secondly, no one should have to bow down and beg a federal government employee for permission to practice their Constitutional rights.

No questions! As long as the ACA is alive, the HHS will force people to provide contraceptives against their beliefs! The Roman Catholic Church is only one religious body that is against a government that forces people to buy a product or service against their will! This tyranny cannot be allowed to stand or good bye America!

They came for the Jews, and I did nothing, then they came for me.

Facebook is a wonderful thing.  Although I am not Catholic, I am a great admirer of Archibishop Charles Chaput, who accepted my Facebook "friend" request.  Today, he had posted this message:

During the Vice-Presidential Debate, Vice-President Biden said "With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is...
