The newscaster, Ashley Minelli,from Newscenter 41 in Macon, who interviewed me and put this piece together did an excellent job, but did not have available to herself at the time of packaging this story the following reflection of the Bishops of the United States--and thus she and the news anchor thought President Obama was changing his course when in fact he hasn't done any such thing. In other words, this is premature reporting and has fallen for the President's smoke and mirrors:
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishop's concerns raised Friday night (after this local newscast story was packaged):
...We note at the outset that the lack of clear protection for key stakeholders—for self-insured religious employers; for religious and secular for-profit employers; for secular non-profit employers; for religious insurers; and for individuals—is unacceptable and must be corrected. And in the case where the employee and insurer agree to add the objectionable coverage, that coverage is still provided as a part of the objecting employer's plan, financed in the same way as the rest of the coverage offered by the objecting employer. This, too, raises serious moral concerns.
