First it leaked out this morning that Notre Dame was going to sue the Obama Administration over its new rule that employers were required to provide co-pay free contraception, sterilization, and ‘morning-after’ pills in their health plans.

It turns out they are not alone.

The Archdiocese of New York, the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C and over 40 other Catholic institutions are also suing the administrationaccording to a report from The Daily News.  They say the rule violates their 1st Amendment right to the free exercise of religion.

The Catholic League promised “There will be more. And depending on how the U.S. Supreme Court rules next month on the constitutionality of ObamaCare, this may just be the beginning.

It’s an all-out blitz.

The Catholic bishops originally had the initiative in their political battle with the administration, until Congressional Republicans held an all-male hearing on the issue and Rush Limbaugh called Georgetown student Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’. Suddenly the battle over the new mandate became a ‘war on women,” and Catholic officials got very quiet.

Well they’ve come back with a united message now and a unified legal attack.  The different organizations have banded together under a united campaign “Preserve Religious Freedom.”

The opening video makes the case that the Archdiocese of Washington would not qualify as a religious institution under the Administration’s new rules and would therefore face the choice of violating Church teaching or pay fines amounting to $4.2 million the first year it violated the rule.

It’s an enormous pushback and it is only just beginning.

    The Roman Catholic Totalitarian State continues to promote misogyny, something they have been adept at for centuries. By the way if they want to promote a constructive form of Morality,consider dealing with their current Vatican banking scandal!

    We recognize the ability of an individual to conscientiously object to harming another person based on religious reasons and allow such individuals to still serve in the service in a non-harming speciality–often as medics or Navy Corpsman providing medical care but never caring arms of any kind.

    Why is it then that everyone seems to miss the issue that a religious based organization is the same as an individual–to force it to do something against the principles of the religious function that owns/created it would be the same as telling an individual to go out and kill someone? If Obama and the government wants to make contraceptives, morning after pills, abortions, or anything else available why is it that the government can’t through any of a number of agencies provide those services at minimal cost?

    Would appear to me to be simply one more instance of making the point that the Constitution and the rights guaranteed thereunder as non-existent. First, it was an outright attack on the Constitution’s enumeration of powers when Obamacare was passed. Then the attack on the right of free speech, right to trial, habeas corpus, and surely if the right to exercise of religion being contained in the 1st amendment and considered the foundation of all the other rights could be destroyed would no the other rights fall in which order?

    Careful what you give up as you might be giving up more than you realize. No one is denying anyone access to anything. The argument is over whether the government can compel someone to commit an act that stands against their moral grain.

    Dont get how it is preserving religious freedom – do ONLY catholic women go to school or work in such religion driven places? Offering a coverage is not the same as forcing the use of contraceptives.. but then, facts never mattered to chest beating rhetoric. Every progressive country in the world has such basic coverages universally available for ALL people, as well, women included in any related dialogues to arrive at solutions, but if Obama administration proposes it , it becomes evil, communist or socialistic.. or so the ‘all men’ panel decides. No wonder we are in the hole we are in. its the dogmas and the cabal behind these religions that are running us into the ground ~
