The US bishops will continue to oppose the Obama administration’s contraception mandate, despite last week’s revisions, Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York has said (full text, comment by Grant Gallicho and Matthew Archbold).

The Church’s response to the needs of young people must not be “evasive or banal”, Benedict XVI said yesterday (full text, video).

Cardinal Joachim Meisner was mistaken when he gave a qualified endorsement of the morning-after pill, the president of the World Federation of Catholic Medical Associations has said.

Bobby Jindal, the Catholic Governor of Louisiana, has rejected a call by the state’s bishops to stop the execution of a child killer on Ash Wednesday.

Fr George Rutler says that Pius XII was so eager for Nazis to be executed “that he lent the help of a Jesuit archivist to assist the prosecutors at the Nuremberg trials“.

Dan Burke names seven books that will transform your prayer life.

And Taylor Marshall goes in search of the earliest photograph of a saint.

    ‘No exemption will be given to for profit secular employers’
     In other words the religious practice of not killing others is to be abolished by fiat, because someone wants to run a business.
     On another site it is suggested that if a small business owner does not provide this insurance they will be fined $2000. 00 on the first count.
    In many cases such funds, for abortion and fines, would be better used for glasses wellness programs and intensive care, particularly by people who have no need for abortion and contraception, such as the very young, aged,gays and singles who don’t want it, not to mention married people who use the cheaper NFP.
     Keep the work up bishops and like minded laity.
      Plod on, it could be years,but some administration will eventually see reason.
