    Hang tough, Matt. Few see this for what it is: the great battle for the hearts and minds of “we the people.” The god of this world is enjoying his moment in the sun; but not for long. The trees are in bloom.

    I THOUGHT CATHOLIC ADVOCATE DID A GREAT JOB, AND I PRY THAT THE CHURCH CONTINUES TO STAND STRONG AND CONTINUE TO TALK ABOUT THIS ISSUE ALL THE WAY TILL ELECTION SO PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO TAKE NOTICE OF WHAT THIS ADMINISTRATION IS TAKING AWAY FROM US AND EVERYONE WITH RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

    I am very proud of the Catholic Advocate for making our values known and addressing the loss of Religious Liberty point on the most liberal of all networks. We need to stand together and to educate the public. Too many folks get their news from the main stream media which has a ver liberal agenda. Congratulations for speaking out.

    This mandate is only the first of many which will erode Judea/ Christian values. First comes mandated contraception, after pill, then abortion and then euthanasia. Catholic and Faith Based institutions will not be able to remain as service providers. Obamas “death panels” are very favorable to euthanasia if a person is unable to contribute to society. This panel and the bioethics division of the Nationa Institutes of Health have conclueded, and have published their conclusions in the NIH Bioethics Journal that it is not immoral to kill a person who is non-productive and does not share in the fullness of life. Does it make sense that Obama wants to hand down mandates which will force Chrisitan and Faith based institutions into immoral practices. He must be stopped!!! Thank you Catholic Advocate for your pro=active status. Kay

    Even if the definition of a religious institution was broadened to include all those ministries with which the Catholic Church is involved, so that the Church was not required to provide abortifacient contraceptives and sterilizations, the battle is NOT resolved until EVERY American is provided the SAME freedom of conscience and is not compelled to offer those services through the insurance companies offered with their companies as well.
    After all, those non-religious oriented businesses, who are run by good people who have a conscience,have to comply with the mandate THIS AUGUST! They don’t have a year to wait. The fines will come immediately. Who’s crying about that?

  5. Dick Bobnick says:

    President Obama has chosen to confront and challenge The Roman Catholic Church with his demands of compulsory coverage of womens’ health care including birth control and abortificants for employees of Catholic institutions. This directly contravenes the separation of Church and state and is absolutely unconstitutional. Fourty three law suits have now been lodged against Obama and his demands and he is destined to lose in the courts. His support for abortion and partial birth abortion as a state senator puts him at odds with not only the majority of Americans but medical science. He is the first American president to take such an immoral and heinous position.

  6. Antonia Hicks says:

    Thank you for putting this up as I didn’t get to see it on television. I can only hope and pray that we get more chances to discuss what our basic issues are rather than focusing merely on the birth control issue. I already see parents who are opting for abortion for so called “defective” babies such as Down’s syndrome and other anomalies after intense counseling by their health care providers. Thank God some of them slip by the imperfect testing that is currently available, and some of the babies who would have been aborted have been born perfectly fine. The elderly in nursing homes who have been warehoused and are taking up “bed space” will be next I fear.

    We are being called to be prayer warriors for those who will be speaking out on the public airways.

    In the past I have been able to sign forms insuring that I can opt not to participate in a medical procedure that goes against my conscience. I may be retiring before I want to if that option is taken away.

    Excellent! Matt did an awesome job of defending the Catholic position. I was particularly impressed in how he spoke to the bigger, more tangible issues (such as the complete lack of protection for Catholic institutions that self-insure), rather than allow himself to get bogged down in the subtleties (that insurance companies don’t give away anything for free, so the “accomodation” is just a shell game). It’s really important to zero in on the easy-to-grasp (and hard to deny) arguments when you have so little time, and you know the audience doesn’t usually listen closely. He did a great job! We need a lot more interviews like that to inform the public, because the press isn’t doing their job. God bless you, Matt!
