"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

This letter, signed by, among others, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, captures the outrage Catholics and other people of faith feel at the Obama Administration's unacceptable incursion into Americans' religious liberty:

It is morally obtuse for the administration to suggest (as it does) that this is a meaningful accommodation of religious liberty because the insurance company will be the one to inform the employee that she is entitled to the embryo-destroying ―five day after pill‖ pursuant to the insurance contract purchased by the religious employer. It does not matter who explains the terms of the policy purchased by the religiously affiliated or observant employer. What matters is what services the policy covers.

As they say, read the whole thing.   The signatures run to 42 pages.... clergy, professors, doctors, lawyers, Catholics, Jews, Mormons, Protestants, men, women.   A rising up.
