HHS mandate 'ominous' threat to religious liberty, priest says :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)

The following excerpts are from Catholic News Agency:
  • As the battle to defend religious freedom continues, a Capitol Hill priest said the contraception mandate should be a cause for concern for all Americans.
  • “The trend set by the current administration has ominous overtones which recent history shows should be taken very seriously from the beginning – before further liberties are taken away,” Fr. Gonzales told CNA June 1.  
  • In his native Cuba, Fr. Gonzales said that Catholics faced similar restrictions before the start of an all-out persecution.
  • “In 1960 after the takeover of Fidel Castro in Cuba,” Fr. Gonzales said, “the Catholic Church began to feel the sting of anti-Catholic policies which reduced the right to religious freedom to the freedom to worship in private temples.”
  • Fr. Gonzales said the rhetoric behind such persecutions is similar to that which is found in the federal contraception mandate.
  • “This smacks of the present language used by the current administration that seeks to redefine religious freedom to the freedom to worship,” as in private houses of worship.
