‘Trampling on Our Religious Liberties’: Catholic Group Launches Campaign Against Obama

The rift between President Barack Obama and Catholic interest groups is intensifying. The Catholic Advocate PAC (CA) is so disenchanted with the president’s policies, that the group has launched a campaign urging Obama to “meet with Catholic leaders to discuss compromise.” Here is a description of CA’s work:

At Catholic Advocate, with our affiliated organizations the Catholic Advocate Educational Fund and the Catholic Advocate Candidate Fund, we engage and encourage faithful Catholics to actively participate in the political process to support elected officials and policies that remain consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Clearly, the political group doesn‘t see the president as being very friendly to the Church’s teachings. The compromise that CA is looking to strike, as Ashley Lopez of The Florida Independent notes, surrounds religious conscious rules. These regulations are best framed on the CA web site:

It is well known the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) forces health care plans to provide coverage of abortion and use our tax dollars to pay for abortion. In addition, PPACA does not protect the conscience rights of health care insurers, providers, and personnel who decline to provide, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for abortions.
