USCCB president welcomes court decision on HHS mandate
November 26, 2013
The president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has welcomed a federal district court’s decision that blocked enforcement of the HHS mandate against two Pennsylvania dioceses and associated ministries.
“Just recently the US bishops issued a unanimous message reaffirming our resolve to resist the HHS mandate and protect our religious freedom,” said Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville. “I’m strongly encouraged by the Court’s rejection of the government’s attempt to reduce freedom of religion to freedom of worship, as well as the Court’s recognition that service to those in need is at the heart of our faith.”
