    So the bishops are in favor of the first amendment. I am not impressed. How many have EVER spoken out publicly against artificial contraception? Are they more interested in constitutional rights or saving souls?

    It's good to see the Bishops united on such a key faith issue! I would urge every Catholic to e-mail or write or call the White House to let our President know how serious Catholics are about life issues and freedom of religion.

    God bless our bishops on taking this important stand. Please continue to pray for them.
