Bishop Zubik lambasts HHS on contraception mandate

Bishop David A. Zubik of the Diocese of Pittsburgh has released a letter online in which he characterizes the recent HHS decision mandating religious organizations to provide contraceptive coverage to employees as telling Catholics, “To Hell with You”.

The letter summarizes the position of church leaders on the issue and their subsequent feeling of deep betrayal on the part of the administration with the recent announcement by HHS Secretary Sebelius.

Here is a link to the message which also urges individuals to contact their elected representatives and provides a form letter to communicate their position and outrage at the decision.
