[Hat tip to Dr. E. Echeverria]
- Dr. Janet Smith, "If only our Bishops hat thought to consult with David Gibson" (CatholicVote.org, February 18, 2012).
- In an email from Christopher Blosser:
There are two issues in the contraception debate -- one being the government financed-sponsorship of contraception itself (advocacy of immorality from a Catholic perspective); the other being the infringement on religious liberty or civil liberty in general.
Even those defenders of Obama who don't believe contraception to be immoral have to contend with the latter issue. From the secular website Reason.com, a libertarian perspective tackling the HHS mandate:
From the standpoint of "freedom of choice" -- to demand that Big Brother compel insurance companies or private institutions to purchase a product for another makes no sense whatsoever.
Even the libertarians understand this.
