The Catholic Bishops are understandably worried that their rights to impose their moral beliefs on the rest of the country is under attack, and they aren’t going to take it lying down.
Via the National Catholic Register:
Explaining the bishops’ decision last June to make religious liberty one of their top priorities as a conference, he said, “For some time now we have viewed with growing alarm the ongoing erosion of religious liberty in our country.”
“Among the challenges we see is a pattern in culture and law to treat religion merely as a private matter between an individual and his or her God,” Lori added. “Instead of promoting toleration of differing religious views, some laws, some court decisions, some administrative regulations treat religion not as a contributor to our nation’s common morality but rather as a divisive and disruptive force better kept out of public life.”
Mandatory nationalized religion for everyone!
