THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DIGS IN DEEPER TO DESTROY RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE! DO THEY REALLY THINK WE'RE THAT STUPID AS CATHOLICS? THAT TELLS YOU A GREAT DEAL WITH WHAT WE ARE UP AGAINST

The White House has denied that requiring contraceptive coverage in health-care plans poses a threat to religious liberty.
Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, told reporters at a January 31 briefing that the administration’s new regulation does not give rise to any “constitutional rights issues.” He said:
The administration believes that this proposal strikes the appropriate balance between respecting religious beliefs and increasing access to important preventative services.
Most of the Catholic bishops in the US have expressed their public disagreement with the Obama administration’s position, condemning the new mandate as an offense against religious freedom and the rights of conscience.
MY COMMENT: More than expressing public disagreement with the Obama administration, some bishops are advocating outright civil disobedience.
