    To Bulbajer:

    If the liberals can't publicly stand by their accusation of discrimination, then they ought not to have made the claim in the first place. This isn't safety whistle blowing in an industry like the airlines, pharmaceuticals or nuclear power plants. This is whining by faculty members of a Catholic college because those members don't want to be Catholic. Fine! Leave that college. If you're employed by a Catholic college, than obey the rules or get the heck out and join the Episcopalians or some such other liberal church.

    Jean, I suggest you and- everyone else here- read ECOSCIENCE by Obama's science czar John P. Holdren, wherein he advocates forced abortion and sterilisation as a means of obtaining a 75% reduction in the world's population.

    Funny... new administration who is decidedly anti life and bam a Catholic institution is hit with a potential damaging law suit. So much for the common ground stuff.

    They effectively ended the Constitutional protection for religion in the 50's when they forced churches into 501c3 charity status, which is essentialy (and intentionally) a noose around our necks in terms of what may or may not be preached.

    This is tyrany. This is a fascist administration, as were the ones before it. Our nation is being run by globalist bankers and eugenicists, who have been turning up the heat just slowly enough to keep us from jumping out of the pot.

    We must WAKE UP and take back our stolen liberty!

    I do wonder why Belmont Abbey felt the need to publish the names of the people filing the complaint. I also wonder, if Belmont Abbey is so Catholic, what these folks were doing on the faculty? Our Diocese has a "self insured" system of insurance and the items mentioned are excluded along with ED medication (against men). Don't any Catholic insurances exist? I thought the K of C's had insurance.

    In the earlier edition, there was an article about the danger of Christians in some countries, what do you call this? In the LAND OF THE FREE, Catholics and it's institutions are being persecuted by the government.
    Wake up and get our mind together. Election time is coming, we can be the biggest voting block. We have to let them know.

    May God bless, strengthen and guide Dr. Bill Thierfelder. Indeed, so long as he remains faithful and obedient to our Lord, and that specifically means being faithful to the official moral and faith teachings of our Catholic Church, then he cannot go wrong in God's eyes.

    An authentic separation of Church and State should be that the Church will not run or dictate the affairs of the State, and vice versa, that the State will not run or dictate the religious beliefs and practices of the Church.

    Alas, what we have in this country is a one-way street type of understanding of the separation of Church and State which is as follows: the Church has no right to run or dictate the affairs of the State, but the State has every right to run or dictate the religious beliefs and practices of the Church under pain of all sorts of penalty. This is pure hypocrisy on the part of the State and on the part of every person that supports this twisted notion of the separation of Church and State.

    In the end, we Christians must obey God rather than men - that is, rather than obey immoral and corrupt men and women, whether they are President of the U.S., lawmakers of the land, or presiding judges in all levels of the Judiciary.

    May God preserve Belmont Abbey College and use it as a very good example of a true and faithful Catholic College. In Jesus' name. Amen.

    Are other Christian institutions forced into this position?

    Obviously there is no separation of Church and State if this is the case!!!

    I think that their should be an option to whether a college should have to pick up coverage of birth control or not.

    In this case let the State pick up the tab on contraception.

    They seem to want to contracept all the women in this country then render unto Ceasar what is Ceasar's and render unto God what is God's.

    May our Lady bless and keep this College covered with her mantle.

    Lord protect this college.

    We pray to the Lord.
