Obamacare and the Catholic Church

Email Email Print

Archbishop Charles Chaput

Obamacare has spawned the infamous HHS regulations which are a frontal assault on religious freedom. I write about those regulations in Monday’s Washington Examiner column. The column also touches on The New York Times’ David Brooks and Ross Douthat, as well as Wednesday’s Fourth of July Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at which Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput will be delivering a homily on religious freedom that should draw the attention of the Manhattan-Beltway media elite as it will signal the resolve of the American bishops and the faithful they lead to continue to contest these regulations.
As I note in the post below, last Thursday’s Supreme Court decision did not mark the end of the legal battles over Obamacare and the Constitution, just the end of the beginning. Anyone who doubts that should be watching for the text of the Archbishop’s remarks. Journalists within the Beltway might want to make a trip to the Mass to hear them in person. That would be real reporting on the intention of the Roman Catholic Church vis-a-vis Obamacare and quite possibly the Church’s role in the presidential election as well.

The Brief Against Obama has a chapter on this very important controversy, and I will be on with Dennis Prager in the 1 PM EST/10 Am pacific hour of Dennis’ show Monday to discuss the book and the Supreme Court decision as well as the continuing litigation to enjoin these regulations and perhaps other aspects of the law as well.
