Corragio, Your Grace!!

Milwaukee Abp J. Listecki puts out the word.

Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki voiced objections to a federal policy that requires most employers to offer insurance that provides free contraceptives. 

WITI-TV (Channel 6) in Milwaukee reports that after celebrating Mass at St. Matthew Parish in Oak Creek on Saturday, Listecki said: 

"Catholic agencies are going to be defined how the government wants to define it and not how the church wants to define it. That's totally intolerable. That is not the sense of religious freedom as we know it."
President Barack Obama's federal health care reform law requires most employers, including facilities such as Catholic hospitals but not churches and synagogues, to offer their employees insurance that provides free birth control.

UNEXPECTEDLY, the Milwaukee JS forgot to mention that the policy also requires free sterilization coverage, and that some of that "birth control" is actually abortifacient.
