If the government asked me to kill someone, I hope I would refuse. If the government asked me to help all my employees to kill, I hope I would refuse that also. I applaud the Green family, owners of Hobby Lobby, for their stand against providing abortions and abortifacients as birth control through employee insurance mandated by our government. The church may be called to take the same stand with all who work at Catholic schools and Catholic Charities.
Will the Greens close all their stores in order to follow their consciences? Will the Catholic Church close all our schools and end all our work through Catholic Charities? We are facing serious moral issues. We need to be informed. We need to be clear and strong.
