Every US diocesan bishop has condemned Obama mandate
CWN - February 17, 2012
Every Catholic bishop currently presiding over a US diocese has issued a statement condemning the Obama administration's contraceptive mandate, reports Thomas Peters.
Peters, who has been tracking statements from the hierarchy, has a full list of the 181 diocesan bishops who have released statements voicing their opposition.

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.
