Conscience Exemption for Me but Not for Thee (5627)

April 8 issue column on the fight for religious freedom in America.

 President Obama’s mandate compelling Catholic institutions to provide contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing pharmaceuticals has drawn far greater support from the Democratic Party leadership (and those who agree with its party platform) than I would have expected, given the obvious challenge it poses to First Amendment rights.

It is truly shocking to watch elected officials like the House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi (a self-identified Catholic), Sen. Barbara Boxer, Rep. Maxine Waters and Sen. Frank Lautenberg back this policy.

It is alarming to watch them aggressively disregard or deny millions of religious believers a broad religious exemption that will shield them...READ MORE

In the final few days of Holy Week, Catholics should recognize that Christ’s love for them is shown by “the total gift of himself on the cross,” said Pope Benedict XVI.

“Let us allow ourselves to be touched by this love, to be transformed, so that the Resurrection may really be realized in us. I invite you, therefore, to live the paschal Triduum intensely, and I wish you all a holy Easter!” the Pope said on April 4.

The Pope made his remarks to 11,000-plus pilgrims who were gathered in St. Peter’s Square for his Wednesday general audience. He explained to them that from tomorrow afternoon onwards, “we enter the Easter Triduum, the summit of the liturgical year” that celebrates “the...READ MORE

The Pope waves to the faithful in Mexico last month.

– Jeff Bruno

Pope Benedict XVI has thanked the Mexican and Cuban people for providing him with six “unforgettable days of joy and hope that will remain etched in my heart.”

“Their inexhaustible joy, expressed with loud songs and music, as well as their eyes and their gestures, expressed the strong desire of all the children of Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean to live in peace, serenity and harmony, in a more just and reconciled society,” said Pope Benedict during his April 4 general audience in St. Peter’s Square.

In keeping with his usual custom, the Pope devoted the majority of his first general audience after he traveled to Mexico and Cuba to assessing the visit.

He told the more than...READ MORE

The University of Notre Dame is reviewing its summer internship policies after a Catholic organization discovered links to pro-abortion lobby groups on its website.

The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property is an American nonprofit inspired by the work of Brazilian Catholic academic and politician Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira.

TFP’s student-action director, John Ritchie, objected in a news release to America’s most prominent Catholic university “offering” and “encouraging” its students to seek summer internships with such pro-abortion organizations as the Center for American Progress, Emily’s List, the Feminist Majority Foundation and the National Women’s Law...READ MORE

Bishops Reiterate That Mandate Recommendations Are ‘Radically Flawed’ (2237)

A new USCCB memo states that 'protecting a religious organization from being forced to act in conflict with its teaching by depriving it of the ability to act at all is no way to serve religious freedom.'

04/04/2012 Comments (3)

The U.S. bishops said that the government’s latest recommendations on its federal contraception mandate fail to address religious-freedom concerns.

In a March 29 memo, they said the mandate “still forces us to act against our conscience and teaching” and that the only real solution is to allow individuals and institutions to offer insurance plans that align with their moral convictions.

No matter what mechanisms are chosen to fund and administrate the mandate, religious individuals and institutions will be prohibited from providing health coverage that is “consistent with their values,” the bishops explained.

In the memo, the bishops commented on the latest development in an ongoing...READ MORE
