· A new website sponsored by US Bishops ·
The first liberty to defend: freedom of religion. It has long been a worry of bishops in the US and now, in lieu of the presidential elections, has only grown more pressing. On the website: firstamericanfreedom.com, one can find information, written prayers, forums and directives to support the campaign that the bishops launched following the federal measures concerning abortive practices infringing the freedom of institutions, organizations and individuals to have religious convictions. The contrast has become especially acute in recent months, following the present administration's decision to enforce measures obliging all employers, even institutions affiliated with religious communities, to offer insurance plans for their employees that also cover contraception and sterilization. Religious freedom, the bishops object, “is the first liberty and a cornerstone of the United States”.
