USCCB launches text-message campaign for religious liberty

Catholic World News - June 22, 2012

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched a text-message campaign to “to provide a new way for people to join [its] national campaign for religious freedom.”

“Across America, our right to live out our faith is being threatened — from Washington’s forcing Catholic institutions to provide services that contradict their beliefs, to state governments’ prohibiting religious charities from serving the most vulnerable,” said Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore, the chairman of the bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty. “We encourage all supporters around the country to text the simple, meaningful word ‘Freedom’ (for English) or ‘Libertad’ (for Spanish) to 377377 to join the movement.”

Those who join the text-message campaign will receive bimonthly updates.
