The Catholic Herald is carrying a report of over 1000 priests co-signing a letter to the Daily Telegraph on the undermining of religious liberty in the United Kingdom due to so-called "same-sex marriage" issues/legislation. The Telegraph also reports of the thousands of children in the United Kingdom awaiting adoption. These children, in part - due to the Catholic Church being forced to retire from adoptions due to new legislation - are being denied parents due to the glorification of the sin of Sodom.
In the United States too, the HHS mandate is an attempt to completely undermine the Catholic Church, and strip Her divinely constituted rights away. This is pointed out by Cardinal Wuerl in a recent video posting at the Archdiocese of Washington website. It is more than just an attack on the Church and Her moral teaching; it is an attack on the very right of the Church to proclaim the Gospel. All of this is a grotesque revival of a virulent form of fascism.

for us what our ministries are..."
