LETTER: Individual rights
Why shouldn’t religious employers provide insurance coverage for contraception? It’s a violation of their beliefs! Is it a violation of their beliefs to look the other way when children are molested?
I was and I still am a Catholic.
Why isn’t the right of the individual protected by the Declaration of Independence as important as the so-called right of the Church in the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights?
Again, why should the Church’s leadership deny individual rights while demanding recognition of its own rights?
