Because the Mandated HHS Rules Strike at the Heart of Freedom

Originally, this post was published in mid-January, 2012. A few days later, the thoughts I read by John Courtney Murray, SJ, inspired me to draft the little petition that, with the help of 29,000+ folks, got the White House’s attention when they determined that the HSS Mandate was, for the Church, a “fait accompli.”

About That “Unprecendented” Poll Asking Catholic’s Opinions On Church Teachings…UPDATED

They thought what? Seriously?!

Two things.

A) It is a survey, not a poll and, B) it was sent to the bishops, not to every member of His Majesty’s ship’s company.  EWTN News has the gouge. [Read more...]
