Bishop Stephen Blaire Expresses Concerns about Lack of a Unified Catholic Message Surrounding HHS Lawsuits
May 22, 2012
I am concerned that in addressing the H.H.S. mandate that it be clear that what we are dealing with is a matter of religious liberty and the intrusion of government into the church and that it not be perceived as a woman’s issue or a contraceptive issue. I think there are different groups that are trying to co-opt this and make it into a political issue, and that’s why we need to have a deeper discussion as bishops.
