Religious freedom in the U.S. is increasingly under attack, and most people are anesthetized against the danger. According to Keith Fournier, "In other words, the Catholic Church was just fined by a civil jury for insisting that an employee at a Catholic School abide by the moral teaching of the Church. In the wake of the growing hostility toward the Church and the increasing violations against the Free Exercise of Religion in the United States, this verdict is a metaphorical warning shot across the bow." See "Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati Loses. Artificially Inseminated Lesbian Teacher Christa Dias Awarded $170,000."

Between this sort of nonsense and the HHS mandate that takes effect on August 1st, how does the Catholic Church operate a hospital or a school?

The historical irony here is absolutely stunning. It was the Catholic Church that invented hospitals and that was responsible for the general spread of schools throughout the world.
