Kresta Commentary

March 1, 2012

By Al Kresta

The fight continues in the House, courts and in November at the polls

By a vote of 51-48 today, Senate Democrats killed an amendment that would have allowed employers and insurers to find creative alternatives to purchasing types of insurance that violate their conscience and the teachings of their Church. As it stands the president’s health care law has set aside the conscience exemptions that have been in place for a generation.  Continue Reading

By Al Kresta

Today Congress began hearings on the HHS mandate… Has the Obama administration trampled on freedom of religion and freedom of conscience. Bishop Lori is there and we are joined by Missouri Synod Lutherans, the Beckett Fund and others. I hope you will hear about it in the commercial media. I wouldn’t count on it though.

I’ve noticed and you probably couldn’t help noticing how quickly the press coverage dropped off after the president gave them an opportunity to declare this over. It reminds Continue Reading

February 9, 2012

By Al Kresta

On January 20, 2012, President Obama informed Archbishop Timothy Dolan, the president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, that the Catholic Church in America has until August of 2013 to provide almost all of their employees with insurance that covers sterilization and contraception, including drugs like the ‘morning-after pill’ that may cause an early abortion. If the Church refuses to comply with this mandate from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), various penalties will ensue. The Church will be considered an outlaw, a bad neighbor and Continue Reading

By Al Kresta

Both the president of the U.S. bishops and the bishops’ Pro-Life chairman called on the thousands of Catholics gathered today at the March for Life to speak out for the protection of conscience rights and religious liberty. “From a human point of view, we may be tempted to surrender, when our government places conception, pregnancy and birth under the ‘center for disease control,’ when chemically blocking conception or aborting the baby in the womb is considered a ‘right’ to be subsidized by others who Continue Reading

Kresta Commentary

December 19, 2011

By Al Kresta

It seems as though Catholic Bishops are under attack in the last few years. Just in the last week, CBS news and an op-ed by Kathleen Kennedy Townsend as well as the recent “American Catholic Council” Conference, attack the Bishops as backward looking, overly-conservative rigid old men who can’t embrace the future. We also have those on the “far right” of Catholicism who constantly point out the worst in the Bishops and lump them all together as a group of liberal, gay-loving progressives who all-in-all are Continue Reading
