Bishop Calvo of Reno and Bishop Pepe of Las Vegas have spoken strongly against the threat to religious liberty posed by the Obama Administration policy requiring religious organizations to provide contraceptives, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs to employees, thereby requiring us to violate our consciences.
Our Bishops have called us to action. They write:
What we are asking you is to help in defending a fundamental freedom. Write or call your senator or representative in Congress. Write to the president. Share this concern with other Catholics or anyone who cherishes the freedoms upon which our nation was founded. We will suggest other action to take in the near future.
