FTA: Religious freedom is subject to necessary limitations in the interests of public health and safety. The HHS regulations do not fall into that category. The world has gotten along fine without this mandate—the services in question are widely and cheaply available, and most employers will provide coverage for them.

I can't agree with the Bishops on this part. Are the services moral? If the church believes that the services are immoral, it shouldn't matter that they are available "cheaply" elsewhere. They should preach to their flock (of whicih I am one) that contraception and abortion are wrong and evil -- NOT that their employees can get these services elsewhere while Mother Church averts its eyes!

Otherwise, I like this lawsuit, and I love Cardinal Dolan and Mary Ann Glendon.

At the deepest level, we are witnessing an attack on the institutions of civil society that are essential to limited government and are important buffers between the citizen and the all-powerful state.

Some guys come up with all the great quotable quotes.

The bishops fear religious liberty is becoming a second-class right.

Or no right at all. The liberal social engineers don't want competition. The state is the only supreme being they have in mind.

Mary Ann,
Where are the rest of the dioceses and Bishops.

This needs to be 100 percent all out against Obama and his minions.

Otherwise it’s for naught.
