Archbishop Dolan on the Separation of Church and State

January 28, 2012

‎”The Amish do not carry health insurance. The government respects their principles. Christian Scientists want to heal by prayer alone, and the new health care reform law respects that. Quakers and others object to killing even in wartime, and the government respects that principle for conscientious objectors. By its decision, the Obama administration has failed to show the same respect for the consciences of Catholics and others who object to treating pregnancy as a disease.” ~Cardinal designate Timothy Dolan

    Dolan overlooks that the law allows Catholic employers not to provide qualifying health plans (with provisions they oppose) to their employees and instead simply pay an assessment, thus affording them a way to comply with the law and avoid acting contrary to their beliefs.
