WASHINGTON (EWTN News/CNA) — The Department of Health and Human Services’ contraception mandate for insurance plans is “more radical” than any other in the United States and entails “nationwide coercion of religious people and groups,” the U.S. bishops’ general counsel said as he called for the mandate to be rescinded.

“Only rescission will eliminate all of the serious moral problems the mandate creates,” said Anthony Picarello, general counsel for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Picarello and bishops’ conference associate general counsel Michael Moses submitted an Aug. 31 comment to the Department of Health and Human Services criticizing its requirement that insurers provide...READ MORE

Faith and Football Take the Field in Family-Friendly Film (1939)

Football season is here. On the field — and TV.

Game Time: Tackling the Past is the latest installment of Procter & Gamble and Walmart’s popular partnership to bring family-friendly movies to prime-time (non-cable) television. It airs Saturday, Sept. 3, at 8/7 central on NBC. (The last movie, Who Is Simon Miller?, aired on Aug. 6 and outdrew Harry Potter in the same 8pm time slot by 3.31 million viewers; that’s a 28% higher audience, according to the Nielsen ratings.)

This faith-and-football movie forgoes a win-the-big-game-by-all-costs-or-with-unbelievable-plays mentality. It’s about winning the game with effort and honesty, something like Blessed Mother Teresa said: “God doesn’t require...READ MORE

WASHINGTON (EWTN News) — A new lawsuit filed against the Department of Justice charges that it is withholding emails about the Obama administration’s decision not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act.

“We have serious concerns that the Justice Department wants to hide evidence that it was doing the bidding of campaign donors and homosexual activists from whom Obama will need assistance for his re-election,” said Family Research Council president Tony Perkins.

Under the Freedom of Information Act, the Family Research Council had requested the relevant documents from the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division to determine the basis for the decision and to determine the possible...READ MORE

AUSTIN (EWTN News) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry has expressed disappointment with a federal judge’s Aug. 30 ruling that blocked the state from enforcing an abortion sonogram law until a court rules on a legal challenge to it.

“Every life lost to abortion is a tragedy, and today’s ruling is a great disappointment to all Texans who stand in defense of life,” the governor said. “This important sonogram legislation ensures that every Texas woman seeking an abortion has all the facts about the life she is carrying and understands the devastating impact of such a life-changing decision.”

The law requires doctors to conduct a sonogram on a woman seeking an abortion at least 24 hours before the...READ MORE

Atheists and ‘The Church of the One Truth’ (7530)

… And nothing but the Truth: atheism and the audacity of the Catholic worldview, Part 2

In the Church of the One Truth there are no ceremonies, no sacraments, no saints. There are no cathedrals, no worship, no mass. There are no sacred books, sacred music, sacred creeds. There is no morality, no accountability, no judgment.

In the Church of the One Truth, there is simply one solitary and singular truth. This singularity is the explanation for all times, all places, all things and all people. The sole truth of the Church of the One Truth is that the universe in its entirety is simply material. Everything is material, physical, observable. In other words, everything is simply one of two things. Everything is either matter or energy. All things are entirely tangible. Or, they...READ MORE
