by being a good citizen and doing something super easy to protect religious freedom. Today is the last day to submit public comment on the new “proposed rule” for the HHS Mandate.
As you must have heard a blillion times by now, the mandate would require employers to provide health insurance coverage for contraception, sterilization and abortifacient drugs. You have probably heard that the administration has altered the law and made a compromise that fixes the problem.
Well, they haven’t. It doesn’t. If you go to this page which gives you a VERY, VERY EASY way to submit a public comment, you will see a fact sheet from the USCCB at the bottom which explains why the fix is no fix. Basically, if you’re the owner of Our Blessed Lady’s Catholic McCatholicy Home for Catholic Catholics and Rosary Giveaways to Catholics, you will still be required to pay for your secretary’s sterilization and her ten-year-old daughter’s “education” about where she can find the morning after pill. This is how they fixed it for us.
The government is basically telling the people they’re only allowed to be Catholic when they’re actually inside the Church building. Even if you’re not religious, that should make you very afraid! Go here to let the administration know that the mandate is still unacceptable, still a flagrant violation of our religious freedom.
And now, once you’ve done the right thing and added your public comment, which is very easy to do and takes like forty seconds, here is your video to start the rest of your Monday off right (and yes, there is a tie-in, but it’s so flimsy I’m just going to let it go):
