Weigel reviews the state of debate on the HHS mandate

Catholic World News - December 19, 2012

Weigel argues forcefully that “the bishops must firmly reject any Obama administration attempt to split the opposition by providing an ‘accommodation’ for religious institutions while insisting that the mandate applies to lay employers with religiously informed conscientious objections.”
