Ave Maria President Wonders Where the Tolerance Has Gone

Jim Towey, president of Ave Maria University writes about the Obama Administration’s assault on religious freedom and laments the loss of pro-life Democrats like former Pennsylvania Governor Bob Casey.  He wrote:

Where are the Caseys now? Never before, under the leadership of any president, has the federal government bullied faith-based organizations into doctrinal conformance on an issue of such religious and moral gravity. The religious exemption the Obama administration has provided in its HHS regulations supports the conclusion that the president wants evangelical and Catholic voices out of the public square and consigned to roles on Sunday mornings. The so-called “accommodation” by the administration to shift the cost of abortion-inducing drugs and sterilization to insurers is a farce, an accounting gimmick. That is why groups like little Ave Maria University are in federal court.

Allowing a U.S. president of any political party or religious affiliation to force conformance to his or her religious or secular orthodoxy through executive action is a perilous precedent. Fortunately, America is awakening to this threat. You don’t have to be a Catholic to see that religious freedom is under attack.
