Religious Liberty - #3613 - 'We Will Not Comply': Catholic Leaders Distribute Letter Slamming Obama Administration on Contraceptive and Abortion Mandate - The Blaze

PLEASE READ THE ARTICLE BELOW AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, CONTACT INFORMATION FOR CONGRESS IS BELOW. IF YOU ARE NOT CATHOLIC, CALL THE ORGANIZATION THAT GUIDES YOUR CHURCH, IF BAPTIST,  CALL THE ETHICS AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY COMMISSION - 615-244-2495.
We’ve covered the Catholic Church’s ongoing battle with the Obama administration over contraception health care mandates for quite some time. Over the weekend, though, the stand-off took an unusual turn, as Catholic churches across America read a letter to congregants that perfectly encapsulated the church’s stance against the impending federal requirements. The Church’s vocal arguments against the Obama administration are centered upon a Health and Human Services Department requirement that employers must include contraception and abortion-inducing drugs in health-care coverage. While this requirement doesn’t apply to houses of worship, it will force Catholic colleges, hospitals and other Christian groups to provide these drugs despite their faith-based opposition to them. Many of these organizations, despite not being, themselves, churches, are intrinsically rooted in religious belief systems that stand firmly opposed to medications and procedures that would terminate the life of an unborn child. These deeply-rooted moral codes, which drive the groups’ work, will be impeded, Catholic leaders say, should the Obama administration continue with its planned mandate........
In it, Catholic leaders went on to say that the Church “cannot—we will not—comply with this unjust law,” as it violates the Catholic conscience. Additionally, the church says that it is faced with a difficult decision — either comply and violate its faith or drop coverage for employees and suffer the consequences. The letter urges congregants to take action and to call Congress in an attempt to overturn the regulation.
