    It seems to me that the Church is up against a losing battle as long as "the law" (defined now by our judges) and our new government define abortion and other anti-life coverage as healthcare. Such "procedures" are a contradiction in terms of health-care from the perspect-ive of the Natural Law, let alone religious faith. Until this contradiction is addressed and reversed, it is obvious that, as Christians, we will suffer persecution. It hardly goes without saying that there is a most insidious endeavor afoot to destroy the "soul" of our country's birth-right--not to mention the Catholic Church, especially, along with other people of good-will. If enough of us pray much for divine inter-vention and stand up in non-violent protest as one voice, hopefully the devil (he does exist) will be defeated by St. Michael and his heavenly troops!

    "No one in the world can change truth. What we can do and should do is seek it and serve it when it is found."
    -St. Maximillian Kolbe

    St. Maximillian Kolbe could not have said it better! He would not be afraid to fight this type of evil. He trusted Mary to intercede for him; let us do the same by praying the Rosary everyday to stop this from happening!

    St. Maximillian Kolbe could not have said it better! He would not be afraid to fight this type of evil. He trusted Mary to intercede for him; let us do the same by praying the Rosary constantly to stop this from happening!

    I found a wonderful source for encouragement in praying the Rosary, http://www.how-to-pray-the-rosary-everyday.com.

    I hope and pray that God will hear all the Rosaries being offered up to stop such a thing from happening.

    There has been much discussion and blogging about this "Determination" letter. As an attorney, I practice before the EEOC and teach discrimination law at the undergraduate level. And it is important to note that this process has just begun--the fight is far from over.

    Please see my blog, "Constitutional Writes" at http://tonykolenc.blogspot.com/ for my full analysis of this issue.

    If we call ourselves true christians, we should condemn evil while not fearing the activities of evil doers. We have a duty to proclaim Jesus with steadfastness, after all, it is the lackadaisical and unchristian attitude of many a so called christian that breeds this present ugly scenario. Our consolation lies in the fact that evil can never overcome good. Victory belongs to Jesus

    I urge all who don't approve of this (and I hope that's everyone here) to join ResistNet.com. You will find links to organise with others in your state and in your congressional districts, as well as a Grand Jury application. These criminals need to be indicted and locked away.

    Wouldn't it also be discriminatory to offer contraceptives that were only available to women? This would read "By having coverage, men are not affected, only women". Notice the hypocrisy and contradiction by the EEOC?

    Our Catholic education system is so valued in defending us each day from all that is evil.

    Immaculate Mary, Queen Of Good Counsel, Pray For Us.

    You think this is outrageous?

    This is just the beginning.

    Obama and his administration will go after the Catholic Church and remove it's tax exempt status if the Church does not marry gays under the guise of discrimination.

    Later, they will ban Priests from speaking out against the evils of homosexuality under the auspices of a hate crime.

    All Catholic hospitals will be forced to conduct abortions and euthanasia or be shut down because of penalties.

    Priests will be forced to report pedophiles when they confess their sin or else be jailed themselves.

    The government will force the Catholic Church to have women priests under the guise of equal opportunity or face the dept. of justice.

    etc., etc., etc..

    You have no one to blame but yourselves, because it was so-called catholics that voted Obama into office!

    May God have mercy on your decrepit souls!

    Clearly EEOC is not doing anything that would contradict:
    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" (1st Amendment)? Would they?

    Hmmm, sounds like another double standard b/c the State is attempting to dictate Church's policies yet again.

    My fellow Catholics, let's stand up to rebuild the original American vision of "... a more perfect Union, ... Justice, ... Tranquility, ... general Welfare, ... Blessings of Liberty... and our Posterity"
