    Imagine being so educated but so dumb to be taken in by this President, still? Oh, well they are Jesuits after all!

    The Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) acknowledges and appreciates the compromise that President Obama has made to accommodate religious institutions in regard to the birth control mandate under the Affordable Care Act. We commend the Obama Administration for its willingness to work with us on moving toward a solution, and we look forward to working out the details of these new regulations with the White House.

    The bishops must redouble their resistance to this outrageous offense against religious liberty. They are fighting for ALL American citizens, not just Catholics. They should be planning demonstrations in Washington DC, and prepare to peacefully resist the mandate, even to the point of incarceration. In the meantime, why aren't they proposing alternative health care insurance plans like what you see from AARP, USAA and other large membership groups? Give the people a choice!

    Given the way Obama went back on assurances he gave Archbishop Dolan, I would not expect even the weak "accomodation" to make its way into regulation.
