Bay Area Catholic for March 12, 2012

Don’t miss this reality-check on the widely misunderstood Health and Human Services Mandate.

  • Is it really an assault on your freedom of religion and conscience? Does it only effect Catholics? It it really near the top of a slippery slope that will neutralize your Constitutional right to practice your religion– any religion? Our round-table panel shines light on these questions. Santa Rosa Diocese Bishop Robert Vasa; US Catholic Bishops’ Conference representative, Richard Doerflinger; Life Legal Defense Foundation president Dana Cody; and Christus Medicus Foundation Executive Director, Michael O’Day. Part 1 of 2 parts.
  • Also, Bishop John Wester, Bishop of Salt Lake City diocese, a fourth-generation San Franciscan, talks with Ed about Catholic life in the Very, Very Far East Bay (Cross the Bay Bridge, bear left, drive for 12 hours). Bishop John also glances back to his many years serving the Archdiocese of San Francisco as priest and Auxiliary Bishop.
  • All this, plus all our regular features to help you live the Faith.
