It appears all of the Dioceses of Michigan (Michigan Catholic Conference) are suing the Obama Administration...
And how about all the other Catholic Colleges and Universities?
Contact your bishop.
I’m thinking this has to be 100 percent just like the original bishops coming out against the HHS. They ALL need to be in this lawsuit — or else there are loopholes.
I’m chuckling to myself — can you imagine, just imagine that OCP would also be on this list of employers going after Obortion Obama?
Buyers remorse? They voted him in with a 54% majority.
Perhaps they should have read up on him a little more in 2008
More non-Catholics voted for Obama than did Catholics. Looks at the big picture please.
Meanwhile, back to the subject of suing Obama — do you approve or not?
Today, the Archdiocese of Washington filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to challenge the Department of Health and Human Services(HHS) unprecedented mandate dramatically redefining religious ministry and requiring religious organizations to provide coverage for drugs and procedures in direct conflict with their religious beliefs. Archbishop Carroll High School, Inc.; Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington, Inc.; the Consortium of Catholic Academies of the Archdiocese of Washington, Inc.; and The Catholic University of America are also plaintiffs in the same action. This local lawsuit is one of 12 actions filed nationwide today, on behalf of 43 separate Catholic institutions around the country
There are two ways that we are asking you, firstly, join us in prayer. Prayer is our most significant tool in the fight for freedom. Each time we engage in conversation with our Lord, He gifts us with the grace to become His witnesses in the world. Join the faithful from the Archdiocese of Washington each day at 3pm and pray for the protection of religious freedom. Take a minute out of your day and pray the following:
Loving Father, Thank you for the gift of life and for the freedom to love and worship You. Through the power of the Holy Spirit inspire us to be your witnesses. Grant us the courage to boldly and joyfully stand in protection of our freedom. In your mercy, guard our religious freedom so we may continue to live out our faith and transform the world in which we live. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Talk with friends and family
If you are like me, you have had a lot of conversations about this topic and know that there is a lot of misinformation being shared. Help get good information into the hands of family and friends by sharing these links and having the courage to raise the issue.
Oral Contraceptive pill?
Open circuit potential?
Ordained Clergy Person?
Oregon Catholic Press?
**Oregon Catholic Press**
The yucky music folks.
Is OCP actually Catholic?
If OCP were on trial for being Catholic, would there be enough evidence to convict them?
Well there are more non-Catholics than Catholics. It was 52/44 in the general election, so the Catholic vote was a higher percentage in Obamas favor. (albeit only by 1 point - 54/45)
to answer your question, yes I approve of them suing and hope they win, for our sake....I just have no sympathy for those that voted him in. Reap what you sow!
**If OCP were on trial for being Catholic, would there be enough evidence to convict them?**
I really do doubt it.
Sure, I’ll see what I can do. Thanks for the heads up Salvation!
“We shall all hang together lest we all hang separately!”
You speak the truth, friend. Action by the individuals is what is needed here.
I sent three articles to my priest this afternoon. Tomorrow I send them to the Bishop.
The Knights of Columbus is missing from the list...
“Im thinking this has to be 100 percent just like the original bishops coming out against the HHS.”
We think alike. ;-)
