Horrible news. H/T to Mark Shea. One of his readers writes:
Sadly, it appears that GU will comply with the HHS Mandate without even a fight. I spoke to Melissa in Human Resource at Gonzaga today and she confirmed December 1, 2012 Gonzaga will cover contraceptives, sterilizations and plan b drugs. This devastating news comes out at the same time Cardinal Dolan said as Catholics we will fight the immoral HHS Mandate.
As Catholics, we will be called in the days ahead to stand up for our Catholic faith and it will be difficult. Remember what our Lord said about being “lukewarm” and have courage.
If you feel called to email or make a phone please do. Above all please keep Dr. McCulloh and Bishop Cupich in your prayers.
President Thayne McCulloh, D. Phil
Most Reverend Blase J Cupich
