Will Obama Fine Catholic Institutions Into Oblivion?

by TERRANCE JEFFREY CNSNews.com | April 19, 2012

(CNSNews.com) - "You don't want to buy it, fine. We'll fine you into oblivion."

That, says a lawyer representing a number of Catholic institutions, is what the Obama administration will say to his clients if the federal courts do not strike down a regulation the administration has issued that requires all health insurance plans to cover sterilizations and artificial contraceptives, including those that induce abortions.

The Catholic Church teaches that sterilization, artificial contraception and abortion are wrong. For faithful Catholic individuals, or institutions, to comply with the administration's regulation, they would need to violate their consciences and the teachings of their church.

The lawyer, Mark Rienzi of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, says he is confident the federal courts will rule in favor of Catholics and religious liberty and against the Obama administration in cases challenging the administration's sterilization-contraception-abortifacient regulation. But he is also confident that if the courts do not rule against the regulation, the Obama administration will attempt to literally fine Catholic institutions in the United States out of existence.
