Catholic bishops are waging a campaign of religious fanaticism
It's been weeks since the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops first denounced a mandate that required preventive care for female employees in Catholic employers' insurance plans. In case you missed it, they said President Barack Obama's rule infringed on the religious liberty of Catholic employers. Requiring religiously affiliated hospitals and colleges to pay for birth control, they said, violates their conscience and therefore violates their First Amendment rights.
