Men of St. Joseph release statement on HHS mandate and religious liberty
The Men of St. Joseph stand in full support of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops in their opposition to Obama’s HHS mandate and the so-called compromise to the mandate.
We view the HHS demands to be an assault on our religious liberty and 1st Amendment rights. The Obama administration has overstepped its bounds in mandating Catholic employers and individuals to offer heath care "benefits" that include abortion causing drugs, contraceptives, and procedures that we as Catholics find morally objectionable.
The Men of St. Joseph is a Catholic lay association of the faithful. Our purpose is to instill holiness in men and facilitate spiritual leadership in family and community life.
